Summer Grove Golf Club
I have played this course on many occasions and find it fair but challenging. The greens are fast and offer plenty of challenge. Fairways are ample and fair.

Great value for the money
Greens are large and true, have to hit shots in order to have a good score, just enough water to frustrate you and a enough dog legs to test your skills, Staff is always pleasant. We were a threesome, playing behind a 5some that would not let us through! Green number 15 is a real beast if you are on the wrong side of the pin!

Overall this is a great course. Loved the greens. Rolled smooth and true. Some trick puts that you have to be creative to read. Only negative was the pace of play on the back 9. At one point there were 5 groups on one hole. Needed a Marshall to speed up play.

I consider this my home course
Travel near or far to play this tract. Beautiful course with well manicured greens that can be perfect pace, and some a bit tricky. If you hit the rough, your ball will be sitting on a perfect little tuft of grass, just waiting on a great shot. Absolutely wonderful course. And the practice facilities are the best I've ever seen. Love this course, and that is why I play it as much as possible.

Good all around course
Good track to play. Summergrove is in my usual rotation of courses. Conditions are always good, and there is a good variety of holes. I'm a 5 hcp and always enjoy this place. Watch out for #9. Narrow green.

Good Condition - Bad Layout
After playing this course several times, I've noticed that the front nine does not drain very well due to it being much flatter, so don't play it if it's been raining recently.
The course is in fair condition, but the think I can't get over is how penal the course is. The course plays through the Summergrove nieghborhood, so you've got plenty of distractions and out of bounds lining each hole. There's plenty of water and sand, too. It's a cliche course where "target golf" is demanded - either hit the target or pay a hefty price - very little room for creativity. This is the most obvious on hole #9, which is quite possibly the poorest designed hole I've ever encountered. It's a 440 yard par 4 with an approach shot to a green that may be smaller than Augusta National's #12, with water in front and sand behind, just like Augusta.
This course is the closest to where I live - less than 5 minutes - but after being frustrated too much on the course, I've started playing other courses that are farther away.

A wonderful course with a good mix of sand and water hazards. Very nice zoysia fairways and fast undulating greens.

Course is in the best shape ever
The course is in the best shape that I have ever seen it - much improved since the first time I played there in the summer of 2013.
I'd recommend it to any golfer.
