So you can't apply to a group.  Since you know how to apply to a domain you are almost there.  You can use security filtering

Just have the GPO apply to the group not authenticated users.  If your users are in an OU I'd rather link it lower at the OU level

Thanks

Hello,

Create the blank GPO (If starting from scratch)
Remove Authenticated Users
Edit the GPO
When finished link it to the OU in question
Create the Security Group
Add said Security Group to the Security Filtering Pane

Note that the users may need to be a member of the same OU you link the policy to.
Also this can take time to propergate across your domain.

I hope this helps.
