Smooth, true greens

I finally got out to play the grove last weekend, and it was a nice layout. The greens were the best part of the course. They rolled consistently and true. The rest of the course was average at best. Shaggy tee boxes and the bunkers left a lot to be desired. 6200 yards from the tips and the course has several long holes 2 450+ par fours And a 230 yard par 3. Fun round!

Short, but tight

You need to be very accurate off the tee in most cases, narrow fairways lined with trees will require a tr4icky second shot. Overall the course was in great shape, and it gets a lot of play. The tee boxes could use a little attention.

Best value in metropolitan Indianapolis

I love this course. For the money, it's the best course in central Indiana. For the infrequent golfer, this course is not too challenging, yet not too easy.

I play this course monthly, the staff does a fantastic job.

Very walkable, though not too much extra to ride.

Check it out!
