Challenging par 5 - tee shot over the ravine Photo submitted by u00000638985 on 06/03/2013
Arnie carved an A1 course into some beautiful Michigan terrain. Generous fairways get narrow and serious real quick. Study the accurate GPS in the cart and choose your club wisely.
A Michigan must-play just like the signs say.
Challenging but fair
Great track which requires a little bit of course knowledge to score well, but a challenging yet fair course.
Workers were busy
The working crew with the cleaning of the swamps wasn’t aware that golfers were trying to make shots around/over them and wasn’t very interested in getting out of the way either! Slow playing on the back, foursome was playing very slow and not a ranger in sight
I was disappointed in the conditions but playing with a local couple learning that new owners/caretaker recently were improving it,. Otherwise it is a beautiful layout and fun course to play.. I will be back!
First time this year
Course in very good condition. Staff friendly and helpful. Only gripe -minor- following a 4 some which was following a 5 some. A tad
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.
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.
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
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.
