I wish I knew it was a grapevine. I will see if it grows fruit or is just ornamental. I was worried that it was kudzu

Welcome! Redwards!
I agree Grapevine! If it's wild grapevine, which is where my city got its name from, you really only get the vine. It's not very popular here. I am sorry I do not know about cultivated varieties, or how to tell the differences. May you be blessed with some good advice here and a wonderful week-end!

It reminds me a bit of Porcelain Berry vine which is in the grape (Vitaceae) family:
Porcelain Berry (Ampelopsis brevipedunculata)

It does look a bit like that. I like it. But don't want an invasive wild thing growing everywhere. I will keep an eye out on it

If it looks like planted for a reason (cultivated) then its probably a fruiting one. Did you check well? Maybe you can find some grapes on it.
As far as i know ( dad got a large vineyard) you need to prune it hard. Flowers appear on new shoots in spring???

Flowers on most grape vines are pretty small and the grapes would be tiny right now, too. Wait a month or two, and see what develops.

I have a similar grape vine growing wild in several places. I have not identified mine but I call it Pigeon Grape for now.
If the plants in your yard had been cultivated in three places there would be a support structure for the grape vines to climb. I would venture a guess that if there is no support structure that the vines are most likely a "gift from the birds". The image you posted looks like a very healthy plant; it might be fun to encourage it to grow and see what it bears. Thumbs up

To me, it looks like muscadine.
But if it appears deliberately cultivated, it may be scuppernong, which is closely related to our wild muscadine.
