Surrounded by 200 acres of carefully preserved wetlands, the Groves Golf & Country Club offers championship golf in a spectacular setting.

The course, which measures 4,019 yards, offers all of the challenging qualities of a championship-length course but can be played in four hours or less. The player-friendly golf course offers something for all skill levels whether you are a scratch golfer looking for a quick round, or a beginner looking for some challenging practice. In addition to the course, The Groves also boasts a unique aqua driving range as well as putting and chipping greens.

Love the Groves

This is a wonderful, fun, short but challenging course.
The new pin placement on many holes has made the course even more challenging. We thoroughly enjoy this course and will continue to come back.

So Consistent

Every time I play this course I have a blast. I will continue to come back. Not only for the overall quality of the course but the overall quality of the people. I love the staff in the pro shop, they truly make you feel like a member. Don't shy away from this short course. It is worth your money.

Leave your driver home

Very nice course in great condition. I hit long, straight drives on 10 and 18 but lost my ball on both holes. Next time I’m hitting nothing more than a 5 wood. Lesson learned.

The Groves is always a fun course to play.....the greens are perfect and the fairways nicely mowed and wide....with sufficient water and sand hazards to catch an errant shot. The staff has always been very accommodating and friendly....looking forward to returning sometime again soon.....

Electronics have killed the enjoyment

I used to love the course. Being handicapped it was a great course. They added GPS which cuts off the cart nd makes you CRAWL back on their track.
I told them 8 we handicapped, and they said they would set the cart so I could get to within 10 yards of the green. I check their GPS, and on a lot of holes the closest I could get was 40 yards.
Never again
