About

Holes 18
Type Private
Par 72
Length 7032 yards
Slope 138
Rating 74.5

Formerly known as Royal Country Club of Long Grove and Hillcrest Country Club, The Grove Country Club, or simply "The Grove," is now a part of the Royal Golf Group, which gives members reciprocal privileges at Royal Fox and Royal Hawk in Saint Charles and the Royal Golf Club in Klein Creek. At just over 7,000 yards from the back tees, the golf course is ideal for long hitters. It offers plenty of room but accuracy is still needed to maneuver past more than 60 bunkers strategically placed throughout and out-of-bounds on every hole. Water hazards also come into play on eight holes. Thousands of mature trees covering the course don't make the layout any easier either, however, the fast but fair greens and four diverse sets of tees make the Royal Country Club of Long Grove playable for a wide range of skill levels.

Great Course, New Golf Management

Course Operations have been turned over to Sequoia Group out of Atlanta GA and already you can see the conditiions have approved to make this course excellent. Membership only this year with a big push for new members and the price is right. If you are looking for the CC living, this is the best deal in the NW suburbs. Pool, Tennis, Dining. If you are looking for Cheap Cheap Cheap, move on to some beat up municipal course and 4 1/2- 5 hour rounds.

Not so great, poor condition, no gps, no course maps

I paid $35 for a private course, so no complaints, it was relatively a steal. But I thought I was going to get immaculate. Could have played a local public course for same green fees and played better conditions. I heard new ownership 2-3 years ago and are working on upgrading.

Very traditional but expensive!

It's a semi-private course with free range balls and pitching area. The course is well maintained but a bit expensive for a round.
