Fun Round

Overall, fun round with good course conditions considering I played in early January. Most of the tee shots require straight drives. Par 3’s are a challenge as they are long for the most part. Certainly like this course and anticipate returning.

I love this course.............but

My favorite course in Asheville, and I know it's January 1, but the greens are in awful shape. Doesn't anyone know how to fix a ball mark on the green?
You would think a few words in the pro shop, and oh... hey here's a complimentary divot tool, do you know how to use it? would go a long way.

Got extremely lucky with a 12/30 Sunny day hovering near 70 degrees. Fun course. Scenery is awesome. Perfect father son course and day! And almost a hole in one on 17 was a highlight.

Don’t wait 20 years to play this gem

My wife and I celebrated our 21st anniversary in Asheville. We spent our first anniversary trip also in Asheville, and I passed up an opportunity to play while my wife enjoyed the spa. I have had several other opportunities and always passes up. Well never again! I will now play every time I’m in Asheville. The layout is amazing! Your short game and putting are crucial, as this is truly the challenging areas of the course. The setting of mountains and Grove Park make every hole a selfie opp. The staff were helpful and courteous.

Slow play but great round

Very slow pace of play. We were backed up at every hole. The greens were fast and it made you think of every putt. Bring your a game and you will very much enjoy your round.

Good layout. Conditions just average

I have played Grove Park before and enjoy the layout. They warned me that the greens had been punched and sanded so I anticipated that. However, I did not anticipate how wet the course would be... I had several tee shots that totally disappeared because they plugged in the fairway. Also the tees were saturated as well. Too much water! If the local rainfall does not support bent fairways, go with burmuda! Everyone from the cart guys to the pro staff was very nice it just seems the total golf experience, course conditions, etc have declined . And $75 for punched and sanded greens is too high. Two people that were supposed to play with me were “put off” by the cost given the greens.

Glad I played it...once

Anytime you get a chance to play a Donald Ross course, it is a treat. This is another genius Ross design. Very walkable if you feel up to the elevation changes. The course plays short, even from the back tees, but it defends itself well if you aren’t on your game. I thought the course was very straightforward, and very fair, especially compared to many mountain courses, a testament to Ross’ brilliance. As you would expect at the Grove Park, the views from the golf course are absolutely beautiful. The golf staff was very friendly and the maintenance staff was respectful as they drove around during my round. Even with all this said, and as happy as I am that I was able to play this course, the regular rate is considerably too high. This is not a $150 course, but unfortunately Omni has gotten its hands on what was once one the most beautifully quaint mountain resorts, and has turned it into another mega-resort. It’s a shame. But play it once if you can. And if you’ve got money to burn, play it again.

Fall golf

The greens had just been plugged so obviously they was rough but outside of the course was in great shape. Very friendly and helpful staff. I had a early morning tee time and they allowed me to play by myself, and I was very appreciative of that. Played 18 holes in just under 2.5 hours.

As expected!

If you haven’t been to the grove park golf course or inn, you need to go. The course is always in great shape and the resort is awesome! When you are done with your round, the baRd and restaurants are excellent.
P.S. while you are playing, make sure your wife is at their famous spa!! She may let you play again tomorrow!
