Nice Day for a late season round

Able to sneak a round in late in the season. Staff was friendly and helpful as they always are. Course was in great shape for late November. Pace was good . Always enjoy an opportunity to play this historic course.

Former all private club now fully public. Great track, Donald Ross course, recent renovation to restore bunkers. The only reason I didn’t give it the highest ranking was due to aerated greens when we played but that’s good for the course in the long run. Great staff, good pricing for this gem.

Everything and beyond

This course was unbelievable for the price, it is beautiful and extremely reasonable. I am a new golfer and usually shoot around 100 and found myself having one of the most enjoyable days of my season even though I shot a 106. I will definitely be back and will recommend this course to my colleagues in the future!

November Golf!

Ravisloe is a very nice course for walking. The greens were a bit tricky today as they had been aerated recently. Fairways and tee boxes in ok shape for end of a long season.

Other than the greens being aerated, standard for Midwest golf this time of year, the course was in great shape as usual. Great golf course by Donald Ross.

Beautiful, challenging, great for walking: Couldn't ask for more

Ravisloe is a great course because it's tricky in all the right places, and is easy to walk, and is well priced and is friendly and .... is just perfect all around. Make this your next round and you won't regret it.

HIDDEN GEM

The course went public a couple years back, but theres definitely still a feeling that you're at a country club. BEAUTIFUL old Donald Ross design. Awesome, tour quality bunkers, tightly mowed pga tour quality fairways, thick lush rough, and small fast greens. Oh yes, and 100 ft oak trees everywhere. GO PLAY IT!!!!

Ruined Gem

Arrived at 7am for my 7:20 tee time to find clubhouse and pro-shop closed, no carts and no starter. The maintenance guys were kind enough to bring out carts. The course is beat down. Appears poorly managed. No stakes or ropes to keep carts away from greens making some areas unplayable. Tee boxes are destroyed and some greens almost bare. Too bad as this Ross layout is one of the best in Chicagoland.
