I don't find it ambiguous. It refers to the quality of the people.
Student or Learner
Does anyone thing that the "great" in:
---- a great group of people
is ambiguous? It seems that "great" could refer to the size of the group, or the "awesomeness" of the people.
It could be ambiguous. I would probably say "a group of great people."
Can I say " a huge group of people"?

Regarding SoothingDave's "a group of great people", I find the meaning slightly different.
A group of great people = A group made up of people who are all great.
A great group of people = A fun, enjoyable group of people although it's not necessarily the case that every single one of them is great.
The emphasis in the first is on the individual. The emphasis in the second is on the group as a whole.
