The course is a par 65, and requires precision shots. We played in three hours as a threesome, but with a foursome in front of us. There are a number of risk/reward holes, and if you can make shots, you can cut lots of corners. But, if you don't pull of the shot, you will be hitting another ball. My two playing companions were both scratch golfers, and both loved it. They said they would both play there again, as it forced them to think about shots and actually execute.

Beautiful Day

This course is great if you can hit the ball where you are aiming. Don't get me wrong, it's a fair course if you pull the right club. I really like this course because it makes you think about each and every shot. You won't just hit driver/ 8 iron or driver/wedge on this course. Well there are about 3 holes you can do that and there are some drivable but if your offline...too bad so sad. This course is built in and around a nature preserve so it's woods city. But that's one of the reasons I like it.
The course tee to green was in great shape or as good a shape as it could be for this time of year. The greens rolled true and were harder and faster then the last time I played here only a couple of weeks ago. You have to really be careful with your speed or three puts will be the norm. I really like this course and recommend giving it a go, as they say in Europe.

Groves Golf & Country Club

Three friends and family had the opportunity to play a round for the first time in over a year together. The course was in great shape, pro-shop staff were welcoming both coming on the course and after the round.
Great job!
