Pleasant Grove is an unincorporated community in Sutter County, California, United States. Pleasant Grove is 7.5 miles (12.1 km) southeast of Nicolaus. Pleasant Grove has a post office with ZIP code 95668.[2] The community originated as a wagon and freight stop, and it earned the nickname Gouge-Eye after a saloon fight in which one man gouged out the eye of another.
