Challenging par 5 - tee shot over the ravine Photo submitted by u00000638985 on 06/03/2013
Arnie carved an A1 course into some beautiful Michigan terrain. Generous fairways get narrow and serious real quick. Study the accurate GPS in the cart and choose your club wisely.
A Michigan must-play just like the signs say.
Very nice design: variety and challenge. The bunkers were large and plentiful but in rather poor condition: very little depth of sand. Fairway grass was kind of long. Very nice greens.
Great Course Design in West Michigan
First time playing/visiting Michigan and the course did not disappoint. The course design is well done and the staff was welcoming from checking in and throughout the course. The course was so awesome I had extra time I booked a replay rate and got another holes in and used the short game practice facility for another 2 hours until the sun went down. I wanted to get more souvenirs like a shirt, but their inventory was low and didn't have anything in my size (M). I ended up getting a towel, which sufficed but wish there was more.
There are a handful of blind tee shots so the carts have GPS enabled so that's helpful for a first timer to get your sight line correct otherwise you can be hitting out of the woods or drive it in a waste area if you are spraying it that day. I played in wet/light rain conditions, but the course drained very nicely and didn't adversely impact my game. I also played as a single, and the other players were very nice about letting me play through. I played the first 18 in about 3 hours, and the 2nd 18 in about 3.5 hours.
One comment I would say isn't to the course, but to the players here: Replace your divots and repair pitch marks. The turf at this course is so good you're throwing pancake sized divots from the fairway and saw a lot of them not replaced or filled.
Overall the course was great and would recommend anyone in the West Michigan area to check it out. If you're a fan of good course architecture and testing your shot making ability, then go to the ravines.
Hurting for Help
Ravines is always a great course to play with a tough layout and well kept conditions. The course today was a bit wet from rains on the previous day and maybe overnight. The staff needed help thought - no starter on a Sunday??? Only one girl in the pro shop and no help in the bar. While it is still a great value in West Michigan, they have fallen a little short of my expectations - which given previous experience were very high. Like many golf clubs - both high end and low - courses everywhere are being hurt by a lack of workers.
Great staff and very good value
The staff was great, cart kids where courteous and polite. Bar staff friendly and helpful. Course is well kept and the layout fair
I wound recommend
Wow! Beautiful! Fun! Challenging!
Highly recommend if in area, loved it. Plays long but fair. Can't say enough good things about it.
The course was in excellent shape when we played it. The fairways were like hitting off carpet and the greens were flawless. The course had a good layout and you have the opportunity to hit just about every club in your bag. Only negative was that the play was a tad slow, but we weren’t held up too much.
The Ravines is a fun, challenging course. It is well maintained and the staff help make it an enjoyable experience .
Awesome course. Great setting and an even better value. This course is a steal for the rate.
Good staff and excellent course challenging for the low handicappers from the blue/black tees.
