The Grove Golf Course opened in 1964. The course was designed by Robert B. Harris
The Grove measures over 7000 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 133 and a 74.2 USGA rating. At over 7,000 yards from the â€œtipsâ€ it challenges the very best golfer. Four other sets of tees, ranging from 6,800 to 5,000 yards, make The Grove course eminently playable for any ability level. Lush bentgrass fairways and â€œfast but fairâ€ bentgrass greens assure the quality of play. Sixty-three strategic bunkers, out-of-bounds on every hole, water in-play on eight holes and thousands of mature trees assure youâ€™ll have to work for a low score.
Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 7,019 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,764 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 13, a par-5 that plays to 556 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 4, a par-3 that plays to 153 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 2, a 546 yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 17, a 168 yard par-3.
