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

The course, which measures 4,026 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.

First Time Playing

Unexpected pleasure

This was my first time playing this course, and I expected it to be like most other courses. It is so much more sophisticated than most. The carts have GPS that gives you distance to the pin and keeps you on the cart path on par three holes. I loved the course, even though there are quite a few hazards. Great experience.

Great Hidden Gem

My wife and I played The Grove today for the first time. The staff was terrific, the restaurant very nice, and the course was challenging for a 4,200-yard course. This is definitely a target golf course and you want to bring extra golf balls. We will be going back to The Grove! This is another great Gary Koch design. You meander through wetlands and will see alligators, sand cranes, and turtles.

Review

Short course.... but makes you hit all shots. Very much a “target golf course “. Greens are good , bunkers are great. Good course for the money. I am a 8 handicap from white tees at most courses. I recommend playing the back tees at this course.

Great course to play

My wife and I have been playing here for probably the past six months. I have brought friends to play also . This is by far one of our favorites as all the staff are fantastic, course is well kept along with all playing being very nice. The restaurant staff and food are top notch.
It’s a short course with challenging holes the par 3’s can present another challenge however the overall experience for us is fantastic and we play at least twice a week here if possible but if a t time is present always on the weekend.

Great day

I’ve played this course a few times, and every time it’s in really good shape. I played with two friends and had blast. The pace was good and the weather even better. I highly recommend The Groves! I will be playing here again soon.

Rude ranger and slow pace

The ranger and older staff are grumpy old men. They overbooked tee times so it took way over 2 hours to pay 9 holes. A friend HAD to buy rentals and they were terrible, came with maybe 7 clubs that were in poor condition. Played there over 5 times since May and today had the worst golf experience I had in awhile.
