Slow, bumpy greens

I hadn't played Ravisloe in a few years and was disappointed to find the greens extremely slow and bumpy, which is a shame because they are a great set of old Donald Ross greens. To boot, some of the pin positions were asinine, including being placed on the top of ridges (it was truly incompetent). I really can't figure out why the greens were so poor given that the course has been raising its prices recently. Anyway, I won't be back, as it is no fun putting greens that are untrue and that require a golfer to bang the heck out of a putt just to get it to roll 30 feet.

Course Review

Shot-makers course. Parkland style course in really good condition. Scoring is possible from the appropriate tees. Great value for the money, especially weekdays. Will play often.

Not worth it

We played on a Thursday afternoon and the pace was not bad until the group in front of us stoped at the halfway house eating lunch and having drinks while the course got backed up. No point in having rangers drive around if they aren’t going to enforce pace of play or do anything. Also the greens are a mess now that it’s public ball marks are everywhere, bunkers were washed out and had no sand. Definitely not worth the $70!!!

Great course, country club feel

You pay a little more but, it is worth it! Excellent course, well maintained, tight tree lined holes, kind staff, rangers out and about to ensure solid pace of play.

HItting it straight or playing to your strengths will help a lot on the course. You don't need 250-300 yds off the tee....190-230 yds will put you in good approach angles. Sand bunkers very deep (99 bunkers in total - we played with previous course employee).

Course has lots of undulation in fairways and greens can be tough depending on pin placement. Signature par-3 hole had pin on top of turtle-back - tough.

Course (like others around it - Calumet, Coyote Run) built 1901 - how cool to play a course over a century old! The original shack clubhouse is still out there. Just appreciative of the history and uniqueness of course!

Looking forward to playing again!
