I really enjoyed this course. Fairways, greens and tee boxes were in good condition.

Despite being a shorter course, it was challenging. You must hit it straight with proper distance control. If you try to cheat a dogleg you better hit a great shot. It definitely helps you focus on your short game.

I will be back.

The greens had just been seeded but the course was still in very good shape. The course has very few holes that require a driver. However, the course will test your iron play. There was no delays on the course. Pace was excellent. We have played this course several times and it is a lot of fun to play.

The course is an executive course-- very short, very tight, but in great shape. I personally like a regular par 71 0r 72. If you like a lot of par 3's with a couple of par 4's this is a nice but tight course.

Found the greens very inconsistent. Heavy rough areas very close to the greens and the small greens too hard to hold the ball. Shorter course but with the conditions above didn't really do much for our short game.

Storm blew through, tee time delayed an hour. Windy cool with threat of rain kept golfers away except us. Did not see anyone else on this cute, well laid out, short course. Very enjoyable, not too difficult. Pace of play was best ever. Turned out to be a beautiful day with a well maintained course.

A short course but you Must hit quality shots to score well ! Some holes you can hit a driver but many your hitting a hybrid to lay up to avoid the many hazards on each hole can't express you Must hit precise shots to score well ! Its Great course to work on your short game and this course make you concentrate on every shot I would not play this every week due to its short length But I will be back again to play it!

The course may not be long, but what it lacks in length, it makes up for in challenging layout. If you're not in the fairway, you're in a pond or swamp. You'll still have a chance to use your driver on some holes. Unless course is busy, pace of play is decent, at least in the afternoon. Should be done in 3 hours.

You will have decisions to make playing this par 65 tract. Lay up or go for it????
This course is well manicured.
Although the greens were a bit slow, they rolled true.
This is a great layout to hone your "short game".
Not for guys who like to "grip & rip" - you need to shape your shots and control your distance with your irons.
A well-paced round......great time on a soggy Thursday afternoon. I will definitely play this one again.

Had a great time at The Groves. Its a fun little executive course. The day we played the greens had been sanded, but still rolled alright. I really enjoy the layout as it makes you hit targets with irons off the tee. If you are looking for a quick round and some chances at eagles its a good course to try out.

This is an executive course and overall the course was in very good to excellent condition except for a few tee boxes that were burning out from lack of water. The pace of play was a little slow; the staff were friendly and the price was fair.
