Great first impressions

First time out at Ravisloe and I have to say that initially the front 9 was just ok in my opinion. What really got me was the back 9 as the true beauty of the course came into focus. Overall the design and age are enjoyable and I would say its a great course for the money that is not overly challenging, yet still makes you pick your lines.

Good architecture and course. Needs some weed killer

Worth the lengthy drive. Really like the course, property and staff. Back nine stronger than the front. Conditions have room to improve; crabgrass is taking over some tees.
