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.

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.

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.

As I got closer to the golf course off of I-94 I could see playing the early holes would be a challenge in dense, pea soup, fog. I had I a 6:30 Tee time & walked into the pro shop at precisely 6:30 a.m. . although I booked a tee time at 6:30 I thought I'd be playing with a twosome as there were only two tee times at that time of my booking. I went out to the First Tee with a hundred feet of visibility. I teed up my Chrome soft lower than usual to limit offline strikes. I hit a low bullet down left side of the Fairway.the greens were phenomenal today and the dampness of the day could not interrupt the Glorious round I enjoyed pretty darn nice an overlooked golf facility. everytime I'm there on an early morning there are workers on the course making sure the greens are perfect and bunkers manicured to perfection. I've been playing here for 35yrs and it never gets old. I alternate rounds playing from the blues and the whites and it's a different course from each Tee box. I look forward to the next 35 years.

The greens where in very good condition . They were slower then they had been previously. The fairways had bee cut and the rough was not overly long. The pace of play seemed somewhat slow with a threesome ahead of us and a fivesome ahead of them. However, we still played the course in a little over four hours. Both my partner and I will play the course again.
