Challenging but fair

Great track which requires a little bit of course knowledge to score well, but a challenging yet fair course.

lengthy round Definitely recommend trying the course out.

Tough and Fun course

This is an Arnold Palmer Course and it shows! The. Course is really well maintained and is tough but playable, most fairways are reasonably wide and the greens are fast and beautiful, a few bugs but not bad considering the rain they have had. Enjoy!!

Really Nice Course and Good Value

Great layout, fun design, in great shape and and nice value. I played first thing and unfortunately the grounds crew was not well trained. They were often in my line, kept their machines running, or just flat out ignored I was there. That was the only blemish on a beautiful round.

Mr. Henderson

Excellent course. Greens were in good shape. Fast and easy to read. Very fair course for the layout from the whites. Especially the back. I’d highly recommend this course.

Decent modern upscale public

The Ravines is an example of a golf course that has been passed by by the times somewhat, though it's still a solid public course option in southwest Michigan. An Arnold Palmer "Signature" design, it represents the height of the pre-depression style of design, marked by oversized bunkers and a lot of ball-swallowing hazards. Still, though, there are several good holes here, and the course is in good shape at a relatively competitive price.

Excellent course conditions

Excellent course conditions considering all the recent rain. 4 hours for 18 holes. Not a typical driver, wedge course. You have to manage your club selection much more carefully than normal. One of the best courses in south west Michigan.

Improved...

First time playing here in 3 years. Last fall's work is looking good. Removal of some trees and brush in between holes is a winner. Course feels a little more tournament like. Very sandy range. Pace of play gets better the deeper into the round you get. By the 13th hole we didn't have to wait at all. Make sure you grab a beverage on the patio below the bar to watch players come in on 18.

Arnold made it tough

Course was in beautiful shape so early in season. Greens were wonderful. Bunkering around greens challenging. A great golf experience.

Maybe my favorite public course in the Midwest

Played Ravines for the first time and was blown away by the layout. Each hole is tucked into the woods, and the layout requires you to be purposeful with every tee shot and approach. The undulating greens made every putt enjoyable, and there isn't a bad hole on the course.

It was quite wet and the course is clearly in Spring conditions (it looks like the first hole cart path is under construction) but I can't wait to return mid season and again in the Fall to see the course with fall foliage. I much preferred this course to Hawskhead down the road

Must play

Back tees are a challenge. Greens are a challenge. Tricky, fun, scenic. I would call it a links-hybrid course. Probably the best in the area.

Worth while

Overall I enjoyed the round. The course is listed out well and in great condition for the most part. My only issues were the pace of play, the greens were extremely sandy, and due to the fact that they had a reception going on the clubhouse was pretty much closed to golfers. In addition I wasn't aware that we would be paired up with another twosome. Fortunately they were nice people and we all enjoyed the round.
