A Challenging Executive Course
The Groves is a challenging executive course. 17 of 18 holes have water penalty areas. Course has 1 par 5 and 9 par 4s with 8 par 3s. All 18 greens are crowned with steep side slopes and double tiered. Greens are average sized but their cowned shape makes them effectively smaller. The fairways and most of the tees are in good shape. Greens are average speed.. My only criticism of the course is that many of chipping and pitching areas around the crowned greens have many marginal to poor lies so if you miss a green with your approach you are likely to struggle finding a good lie as compared to private local courses that are better manicured around the greens.. Overall the Groves is a fun challenging executive course with pin placements that often requirie extreme precision shot making to score well.
Great Day at Groves
I have played this course many times. It is usually in very good condition given the often dry spells, hurricanes, etc. in Florida. While it is not a long or very difficult course, the greens are quite challenging (not just my opinion) and tend to make what look like "easy" par deceptively difficult.
This is an executive course, Par 66 so only one par 5 and many par 3s. Even the par 4s are short, some are drivable. Greens were punched so not rolling true. Clubhouse is under construction so not open but will be nice when done. Price was right but not a big challenge.
The game that wasn’t
Put us out on the back nine in the middle of a men’s league tournament resulting in our quitting after one hole. We would have been all day to play. They offered us the option of playing their other 18 holes if we played that back nine twice. We asked for and received our money back. Very disappointed with whole scenario. They should never have sent us out in the first place. Don’t know why we couldn’t have gone off the first hole. Maybe the men’s league had the whole course. Anyway it never should have happened.
Challenging Short Course
Always fun to play at The Groves! Makes you realize a short course can make you reflect on what clubs to use.
Course was challenging and in great condition. The Groves is one of three courses on the property but is fairly remote from the clubhouse which was our only complaint--no restrooms or food/drinks at the turn. We'll play this course again but come better prepared.
As a beginner
Great course conditions. Lady at clubhouse was great, old dudes were rude and seemed put out if you asked a question.
Early November Saturday at the Groves Course at the Meadows
Even though I had back-to-back birdie 2s on the back,
my wife still beat me. Fun day!
Nice Saturday at the Meadows Groves Course!
I enjoy this course because it's just the right length for me. I actually had a couple back-to-back birdies on par threes on the back... but I still got beast by my wife! :-)
