Love Ives Grove!!

I've played here three times this year. A challenging course that's in excellent condition makes for a fun experience. The only issue lies with the pace when groups with carts are mixed with groups who are walking. This causes lots of waiting time that destroys any kind of pace. If there was a way to steer walking groups to one of the 9 hole courses as much as possible, that might improve the pace for groups with carts. In spite of this, I love the course, the way it's maintained, and the exceptional customer service provided by all of the staff. It's well worth the hour drive to get to Ives Grove. I'll be back.

Better than expected

Played this course a few times over the past couple of years. Seems to improve every time. Greens are in great shape, fairways are cut tight, tee boxes are fine. I recommend playing here.

Great day at Ives

Played the Blue 9 & the Red 9 today (9/24). Both 9’s were in real good shape including the sand traps. With the wind, traps and lightning fast greens both 9’s were challenging but “gettable”. Ives is always a good value for your $$$ plus the staff is courteous & friendly! Check out Ives for yourself. Thank You, Sgkhome

I Love Ive's

A unique and awesome course. I love playing here and wish it were closer to home so I could play it more. The fairways were a bit long this last time out, but that's to be expected this time of year. The greens, as always, were absolutely perfect! Great value here for such a great course. I highly recommend! Also, the folks working there are always extremely pleasant! Cheers to you folks!

Great staff

I play the course on a frequent basis. Pete the head pro, Ian the assistant, along with all the staff are wonderful. The course is fun and challenging. The course gets a lot of play, but is always in great shape! Been playing here for over 20 years.

Jim gives Ives Grove Golf Links a 5 tee rating

They had a lot of rain over the last few days, stopped raining the day before. The course was spongy in a few spots, but overall it was in great shape. I love the place! A challenging course design made for an enjoyable experience. They were busy on a Sunday afternoon. The pace was a bit slow, not uncommon when you have walkers in front of groups with carts. It's an hour drive for me, but it was well worth it. I'll be back. I highly recommend the course. Everyone there was very pleasant and professional too!!!!

Nice course, friendly staff

27 holes of challenging golf. Course is relatively flat so very walkable. Riding carts are available for rent. Excellent grill with a fairly wide range of food choices. State of the art driving range including TrackMan simulators. Full bar, and usually drinks cart out on the course.
