Top course in the South Suburbs

Greens are perfect right now; course is beautiful year in and year out. Upped the price a bit this year but still worth every penny. Top 3 course in the south suburbs hands down. You will enjoy this round

Great play

Course was in great condition, and the greens were rolling (but that wasnt bad). Staff was beyond friendly, and this is an "old school country club" layout. Great to get back to play it. We will be making another visit.

Rained out

Was supposed to play today, but the course was soaked because of heavy rain. The course called me to inform me that the course was very wet. They said they would contact Golf Now to refund my prepaid tee time. I was surprised that they called to save me a trip to the course.

A Gem

Absolutely great course set up by Donald Ross and it’s in beautiful shape. Greens are perfect and the bunkers punish you- that’s what Ross wanted for us.

Fun Round

1:45 minute Frost Delay. Staff did a great job starting with a phone call the day before altering of a possible delay.! On arrival staff kept my group informed and did a great job getting us off and checking during the round. Course in good shape for early in the season.
Really appreciate the customer service.

So much promise...

I play Ravisloe around a dozen times each year. Love the accessibility off I294. Love the Donald Ross design and (for the most part) lack of housing visible from the course.

This is not a place to go for a leisurely round (thank goodness!). I'm not saying that everyone who plays here is a single digit by any means, but most players here like to play a quick round.

My complaints -
1.the maintenance needs a little more TLC. Most tee boxes are pretty chewed up and it's only the beginning of the year
2. cut the greens a little closer to allow the natural break. They have great contour, but you can't tell when they're hairy
3. for the players - fix your ball marks, please. Take care of where you play!

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.
