Would recommend!

Course was in pretty good shape. Greens were moderate in speed.
Only complaint is golfers not repairing their divots on the greens. I found myself repairing several on every green before putting. Not the Clubs fault. Just novice players not being mindful of the next player.

Good Golf Course for any handicap golfer

Good course for walkers, very flat and open. Some water holes and lots of sand bunkers near most greens. Stay out the sand, a bit hard due to lots of rain. This has been a very rainy summer. Some very challenging holes where position is a must.

Great day

Course is in great shape for the usage it gets. Wish fellow players would fix ball marks on greens and replace divots. Of course this is not managements fault.

Nice layout and variety

With 27 holes the variety is great. Its fun to play each time. This year the weather caused some issues of excessive water creating a few extra bumps especially in the rough. Recommend this course for all levels of golf.

Great time

Took some people on an outing. Out of the 4 of us, one never played before. The course was busy but never had any issues with pace of play. Course was in good shape even with a ton of rain last night. I will be back.

Ives is WINDY but fun

Ives sits atop one of the highest points in Southeastern Wisconsin so it always has some wind, but the course was much better than expected with my Golf Now Hot deal. The condition was very nice for a semi muni track. Greens were nice with good speed, fairways were in good condition, you get off of the fairways and rough was thin with some bare spot lies which is never fun. Layout was fun I enjoyed the 9th hole on blue dog leg right par 5 over a bunker and 2nd shot is over a pond, a great closing hole for a course. Pass of play was no bueno for 10am on a Wednesday.

I am super excited though for their new driving range their building (Tony Romo family. It looks awesome heated range with outside stalls too. Its gonna be sweet and in a great location. Good work Ives Grove Ill be back.

Course review

The courses are well maintained. The staff is professional and friendly throughout the organization. Knowledgeable professionals available for lessons, for youth and adult.

A forgiving course, at times. Length of courses can be walked, (not hilly), or a cart may be rented.

A good course... a good value!

I have played golf in SE Wisconsin for over 40 years and Ive's Grove has become my home course. Why? ease of availability and value. Ive's is always challenged when they enter a wet period but under normal conditions they offer some of the best greens for speed. If anything I would like to see the course and greens firmer, faster. It may not be possible but a links course is characterized by hard, firm fairways and large greens so players may run the ball up as an option on windy days. What could be do-able would be a few more water jugs, towels for ball washers (some were missing during my round) a bucket of water on the range and/or course so as to clean your clubs. Pete and his staff are always friendly and accommodating where they can be. I always enjoy my time at Ive's Grove. It's a wonderful and inviting golfing atmosphere.

Disappointed

I have been playing this course for 17 years. The fairways need help. The bad areas in the fairways have been bad for years. Lots of mud holes between greens to tee boxes. Nobody will fill them. Lots of weeds and dandelions in the rough. This course could be really nice if it got some tlc. Greens are the best feature. Challenging and quick.

My Favorite Course

Ive Grove is my favorite area course. This spring has been brutal and it is making it very difficult to keep the course in playing condition. That being said, I still enjoy playing at Ives. My last round was a little frustrating due to the wet conditions. There was little or nor roll and the to ball didn't fly as well. Hopefully, when we get through this extended wet period the staff will be able to get the course back into shape. Pete and his staff do a great job. They are friendly and willing to help answer questions. Looking forward to dryer tomes.
