Expanding on my previous reply, you need to look into the Group Translator object.
It will allow you to work with the Group.
In the past I have built tools to do mass updates of groups (due to schema changes) through it.

Since you posted this in the Windows/LAN forum.. and not web - her's an example of getting the SQL for Latest Accounts in the Account Family (entity):
strFamilyName = "ACCOUNT"
strGroupName = "Latest Accounts"
strPluginId = Application.Basicfunctions.GetGroupIds(strFamilyName, strGroupName)
strSQL = Application.BasicFunctions.GetGroupSQL(strPluginId)

Your response is spot on. I was thinking more along the ways of being able to modify the Group's SQL, but for retreiving the Group's SQL this is all that needs to be done.

A lot of times on upgrades we run into group issues.. especially Slx systems that go WAY back! SO I have a tool to dump and analyze all the group sql to find tables/fields that are causing issues.. Saves me a TON of time!
