This course is immaculate.The greens are perfect and healthy.The kind of greens that bend your divot repair tool.It's unique.If you want to up your chances for a hole in one this is the place.1 par 5.9par 4s and 8 par 3s.Long ballers even have a chance to make hole in ones on many of the par .4s.Tees and fairways very nice.Carts are kinda judgey.If you drive in restricted areas the carts slow way down to 2 mph.

This coarse makes you think

This coarse is not 400 yards down the middle
A lot of shots placement is needed
Between bunkers the rough and dog legs. Unless you can hit 275 yd you will need to place your shots and plan ahead for you approach shots.
I loved the greens very well keep and large
Awesome coarse. I loved the triple dogleg and blind approach shots
The cart GPS came in handy for the first time playing the awesome coarse.

Excellent course maintenance

The Groves is an enjoyable short course that’s laid out to provide a few good challenges, with some of the best groundskeeping in the area. My sole complaint in recent visits is a slow pace of play due to some groups of very slow, perhaps novice players who either don’t have the courtesy, care, or the awareness of their sluggish play to allow others to play through. This should be a 2.5 hour course at maximum. It’s painful to watch people hit a ball 20 yards, chat around the cart, then hit another 20 yards while having their social time - while seeing other players stacked up behind them. Staff is friendly and helpful, and course conditions are excellent for this dry time of year.

I am a handicapped golfer. They have added GPS to all of the carts, I asked for handicapped carts, I was told I was given one, The closest were were allowed to a green was 44 YARDS!
THE SYSTEM IS A JOKE. We won't be going back,

Thank you for your feedback. Your carts were made handicap carts in the Pro Shop. We allow handicap carts to get as close as 30 feet to any green but do not allow driving between tee boxes and in other restricted areas. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Great course, slow pace of play and disrespectful players

Wasn’t busy but still Waited at every hole for group ahead and had people behind us so impatient that they consistently tee’d off and balls came close to us on the fairway. Frustrating.

Great Time had by all

This is a deceptive golf course. You look at the length and say it's a short course but this baby can turn on you. You need to be on your game here.
The course conditions were perfect, awesome thick fairways and perfect greens make playing a pleasure like it's supposed to be.
