Great short par 65 course

Starter sent me (a single paired with another) prior to scheduled tee time to get out ahead of a few foursomes. So pace of play was determined by our play - finished in about 2.5hrs. Holes are short, never did pull the driver. The course was in great shape tee to green. Excellent course to hone in the irons. Played here a few times so far and will return even though it is about a 35 mile round trip.

The very best little big course I ever played

I live in the gross and play the course two or three times per week. It is above exceptional the maintenance is excellent the greens are well above average the layout in short but challenging. For an older player or novice discourse is all that and more. If you are a young professional are long ball hitter you will be disappointed because you can't use your driver. However the layout leaves lots of challenge to a good player. You will leave the course banking wow this was much nicer then I expected beautiful scenery and Wildlife everywhere. They did not pay me for this review but this course is well worth a trip and your time to enjoy. Signed d p Vic

Don't be fooled by it's length.

We had a great day playing the Groves in Land O Lakes. This is a short course but don't be fooled by it's length. it is a challenge to navigate well. There is a lot of movement, right to left, left to right, dog legs, hidden greens, C shaped fairways, you name it. The greens are in awesome condition, none better.

I'll Be Back

1st time playing there. The course was in perfect condition. It is the longest short course is very true. It is difficult as there is not a whole lot of room for mistakes. I actually lost 4 balls to hazards. The fairways and the greens were absolutely perfect. Staff was very friendly. I will be back !!!!!!!
