    No GPOs only apply to computer and user accounts and not to groups (but groups can be used to filter GPOs assigned to an OU with computer/user objects).

    You would want to apply the GPO to the either the OU of the users, or to the Domain, then change the security on the GPO where only the Group in question has the "Apply Group Policy" permission, plus the Read permission.
