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.

Nice short course. Course grass quality has improved and continues too. Greens are in the best shape than compared to pst years. It is a work in progress but they are doing things the right way. Can’t wait to see what it looks like in a few years!

Fun Course

I’m a low teen handicap golfer that was looking for a place to play with my wife who has started learning golf after retirement. A full size course is more than she wants to play so we’ve been trying short courses. Most are not very interesting and the conditions are generally poor. We tried The Grove recently and she really enjoyed playing there. I also found the course to be very enjoyable and challenging. There is water everywhere and the designers used it very well. You better hit the ball well and know your club distances or you will lose a few golf balls. Good shots are rewarded! The greens are very good although somewhat slow. The fairways have good grass coverage and will be better as the Bermuda grows. For me it’s good place to practice and have fun with my wife.

Tough to play

By the time we teed off on the third tee, we found out that a very dear friend had passed away. This made it very troublesome to concentrate on playing golf. We liked the fact that Tee numbers 14 and 18 were expanded to pars 4 and 5, respectively. Since no one was in front of us, we were able to set up our own pace. We completed the course in 3 hours.

Slow

Threesome in front of us had a one hole head start. Had to wait on every hole. Made it a 4 star day instead of a 5.
