Surface conditions

Greens have interesting topography but obviously overplayed and hard to find a true roll. Rough needs to be cut. Free side locations covered in weeds and bare patches. No money being given to maintenance budget and clearly showing.

So many Bunkers!

Wonderful track, fair and challenges your shot making abilities.. Greens were linoleum, in a good way - 13 Stimpmeter per the guys at he club drop. Bunkers at all key spots and they are deep. For a short course it plays long as there is so much that can go wrong around and on the greens. Outstanding value at $38 w/cart early in season (late April weekday). Had a great time and will be back.

Slow Group in front

Outside of the group in front of us, everything was real nice . They finished three holes behind the group in front of them. That's 1 hour of wasted time. What ever happened to rangers that actually move play along. Seems to be a lost art. They should have been made to skip a hole since they were way behind.

Wow! Beautiful course, BUT Demanding.

Played the Ravisloe course with 3 friends. Not the first time we've played there. The course was in excellent condition. We had a great time except for 1 hole, #3! The hole placement was unplayable! We all laughed as we picked up after 3 putting the green an no closer to the hole as the first putt! Will definitely look to return.

GREAT PLACE

Ravisloe is in great condition for early season. Traps appear to have fresh sand and several of the tee boxes have been resodded. . A great mature course with a lot of trees that were planted by long deceased course planners with forethought. Small fast but fair greens. Always a joy to play here. Best public course in the area.

Meh

Nice enough course. A few holes run alongside a road next to a creepy apartment building and other eyesore businesses. Most of the holes are just straight, and the amount of houses lining the holes didn’t allow me to feel completely secluded. Play it if you can find a deal
