About

Type Public
Par 72
Length 7083 yards
Slope 144
Rating 74.7

Ravenwood Golf Club is situated in the Finger Lakes region in western New York. It's one of the most popular public championship courses in the Rochester region. Robin Nelson designed the course in 2002. He utilized the gently undulating landscape to seamlessly connect the holes to one another so that the whole golf course has a natural flow. The front nine is gentler than the back, where the par 3s present formidable tests. The water hazards on the back are particularly challenging. The golf course finishes with one of its most memorable holes. Ravenwood's par-5 18th has a green that's tucked into the woods with the hill behind it forming a natural amphitheater. A challenging array of seven strategically placed bunkers guards the green and approach area.

Great Layout & Conditions other than the greens

Greens are burnt out... but at least they are up front about it on their website and are doing cheaper rates. Other than that its first class. Great layout and conditions. Don't think they prepared for the drought that well and were't watering the greens enough.

Challenge

One of the finest courses to be found anywhere. Each fairway a challenge to your club selection. With fairway bunkers throughout the course you are challenged to keep your shots near the middle of the fairway. Scenic views on every fairway. Nice clubhouse with friendly staff

One of the Best in Rochester

I play Ravenwood multiple times each season and the conditions and layout is one of the best in Rochester. That being said the round I am reviewing had a slight negative. We purchased a 4:30pm Hot Deal, no one was on the front 9 when we started so we were going at a great pace. Then all of a sudden once we hit the back 9 there were 3+ groups suddenly ahead of us. I am assuming since we were playing so late in the day they sent off people on the back. Which is fine but to jam that many groups when they knew our pace/where our cart was kinda made me angry. It made for a slow back 9 when we should have had little to no one ahead of us.

This was my first time on the course. There were enough challenges for a duffer like me but easy enough to keep most of the balls in play. The greens were in great condition and mostly flat. Tee boxes were well kept and level, been on too many that were tilted or crowned. Can't wait to play there again. The staff was great.

Will play it again

The staff was extremely friendly. They have a driving range if you want to hit a few balls, and a nice putting green that matched the speed of the greens on the course. Fairly wide open fairways make it easier to hit your driver from almost every tee. Larger greens also help your greens in regulation stats, but you may be faced with some lengthy putts. I'll make an effort to play this course again when I'm in the area.
