Crammed

Beautiful Wednesday produced full tee sheet but they kept cramming more and more people out there. Pace very slow. Marshals were present but didn’t do much. People hitting into each other a lot. Greens in great shape. Not yet punched, smooth and fast. Tee boxes chewed up on par threes. Disappointing. This is my favorite Illinois course and I won’t go back.

Great Course

I had the pleasure of playing Ravisloe Country Club on 09/30/20, with another friend. It was the second Donald Ross course I have played in two weeks and Ravisloe did not disappoint. The greens were smooth, slick, and rolled nicely. The subtle breaks made the greens fun, but hard to read. The location of some bunkers gives the illusion that they are closer to the greens, than they actually are. The whole course was in very good shape and played fair. The par three distances, on the day we played it, ranged from 215 yards to 135. The indoor and outdoor staff were extremely friendly and professional. I really enjoyed playing this course and I will definitely play again.

Interesting layout, poor conditions

Interesting course layout, with a good variety of hole designs and very good bunker positions and designs (small traps with mounds around them).
But the course conditions were fair at best. The greens had lots of ball marks and were shaggy. Many of the fairways were wet, even though there had been no rain for a week (very frustrating to hit a big divot because of overwatering). The cool traps had little sand. And most of the par 3 tees were more divot than grass.
If I had paid more than $49 for a weekend afternoon I would have been more upset, but after hearing many good things about this course I doubt I’ll drive down from the city to play it again.

Average Condition

Normally Ravisloe is in great condition but this time many tee boxes were in horrible shape and the greens were beat up. The course definitely needs a little TLC.

Love love love

Will become my mainstay next year. A few too many marks on the green (players not course). Greens rolled true. Great pace. Staff was phenomenal both times EXCEPT this time when I dropped off the cart we weren’t even acknowledged. Was disappointed after such great service in every other aspect. Starter and pro shop staff were amazing.

Great course and staff

Last year was my second year golfing in the Wednesday night league the addition of Kevin as assistant pro made all the difference in the league . He was extremely professional and friendly running the league. The course is truly the gem of the southern suburbs. If you haven't played this course make sure to do so you won't be disappointed.
