Common grass spider? I'm sure there is a better name. This one was pretty big

Hi. This is one of the wolf spiders, Lycosidae family. They do live in grassy places and often have their hide in shallow burrows under rocks,logs,and leaf litter.
Not dangerous or aggressive but provocation can set them off defensively. A bite may compare to a bee sting.
