Ravisloe County Club

What a wonderful track! It was my first opportunity to play Ravisloe and right off the bat, I had a nice conversation with Kevin Stoffel (head club professional) prior to the start of our round and again afterwards and was happy to be able to convey our overall satisfaction with this course. The Donald Ross designed track was in very nice condition and challenging but not overwhelming for mid-level handicappers. Also, the trappings of the 19th was pleasurable and the staff was courteous and friendly. I highly recommend this course and can’t wait to get back again!

Wonderful Course. Old School in a great way.

I believe that this at one time was a country club in the early 1900's. The club house and buildings have a great classic feel

The course was in great shape. Very green. Fairways and greens both excellent.

Lot's of old growth 100 year old trees to get in the way of your recovery shots. Lots of small bunkers to avoid.

The course is narrow and challenging. This course requires you to hit your drives straight with little forgiveness for error.

The staff is very friendly from the pro staff to the course rangers.

If i were to nit-pick, the driving range is not fantastic, but who the h cares. $5 per small bucket is worth it for me to get warmed up.

Bottom line, great value for the money.

Tee boxes

Surprisingly bad tee boxes. Not just the par 3's. All were a patchy mess. Rest of the course was great as usual. Please fix ball marks, even if you didn't make them.

The course is in great condition

As always, the course was in great shape. I played later in the day, 3.10pm. Played front in just under 2 hours. The back nine dragged on. 2 hours 45 minutes. Lots of twosomes that could have been blended together......

Good course, well maintained

For a once private course, turned public, it was in great shape. Greens were challenging, the deep bunkers were testy to escape from, and the rough wasn't too deep. Would recommend this course to anyone looking for a challenge of their skills. Will definitely play there again.

Great day!

We had two foursomes play today. The course was in great shape, and pace of play was good all day.. The only downside to the experience was the bar and restaurant were closed for a wedding.. it would have been nice to have a portable bar set up, or at least keep the halfway house open so we we could have enjoyed a cold beer after the round.
