Nice medium-difficulty course

Beautiful July mid-80 degree day in Chicago, and a beautiful course to play. Majestic, stately old clubhouse greets you upon driving in. Parking was sparse, lot was full, had to use an "unofficial" space. Thankfully, the course played at a decent pace. Our twosome was paired up with another and we were of similar capabilities so it worked out well. Played from the "grey" or hybrid tees - at 5800 yards - perfect for our "senior" skill level. Course was in great shape: tee boxes, fairways, greens and traps all nice. But watch out for those traps - they are deep and thickly rimmed - blast-out a MUST. Can turn a par into double real easy. Favorite holes: N0. 5 - short right dogleg; NO. 7: par thee over water signature hole; NO. 13: long, tree-lined par 5; NO. 15: short, par 3 over stream to elevated green. Two holes require "bell ringing" due to blind tee-shot over hills. Nice course!

A Must Play!

Making my rounds around the southwest suburbs and I found this beautiful course. This is a classic country club layout with challenging holes and excellent course conditions. Best bunkers in town and even with all of the rain....My hats off to the greens keeper. Guys up front were super friendly and overall this was an outstanding morning. Keep it up! I'll definitely be back!

Great bones, watered down...

I had really high hopes going into this round and overall, I was really impressed with my first trip here and to a Ross. It poured the day before, which led to a phone call from staff saying carts wouldn’t be allowed. Very glad this happened as I don’t have a carry bag, but they do have push carts.

As for the course, standing water was all over. Not their fault. Nor were the extra squishy greens. Staff may have taken this into account as some pins were tucked. I really enjoyed the design, but based on prior readings, the greens have shrank over the years and trees have been added that provide nothing.

I’d definitely recommend this course to others and honestly can’t wait to visit again, hopefully when it’s drier.

Great challenege!

I loved this course ... it was on the shorter side, but it really made you think about where to miss, where to leave approach shots (above or below the hole, etc.) Had to hit both draws and fades off the tee. A couple good birdie opportunities. Highly recommend!

4.5 Stars Another lovely day at Ravi

Simply put one of the best fun old schoolers you can play in Chicagoland. A gem and we're lucky to have access to it. It was busy...pace was never an issue....played in well under 4 hours mid afternoon! Conditioning was very good except the greens - a little slower and bumpy than I've experienced over the past few years. Other than than everything was great. 1/4 star downgrade on the greens and I'm dinging them another 1/4 star because none of their on course domestic beer selections (budweiser products mainly) is my wheelhouse and their on course import list seems to lack creativity as well. $52 senior rate is very fair and decent value for the quality of the course and facilities. Highly recommended.

Always fun to play here

Always in decent shape rough is alittle.high and greens were alittle baked but everything's always good here. Outdoor dining after and good food. Yeah now that its getting hotter hopefully they dont let the greens get to squirrelly and lost a few balls in the thick rough that hadnt been mowed but no big deal its golf and it was fun on a beautiful day!
