Good round on a hot day
Played Ravenwood for the third time this year. I treated my friend to his 50th birthday round. We had a good time and were paired up with an ex-Army man who played pretty well so it was a pleasure to meet him. The course was in great shape and the only reason I didn't put 5 stars on the conditions were 2-3 greens that were recovering from mold or some other condition, however, all of the rest were in great shape. The spots did cause some bumpy putting. The course is challenging especially when you get into the tall rough, so you have to keep an eye on where the ball went in to make sure you have a good spot to start searching. We only lost one ball to that and were able to play out of the tall stuff, so it's not impossible but adds to the challenge. Hitting the fairway is key and they are in great shape (just need some folks to replace their divots which we did as well as repair ball marks that people walk over). Try the course, you will enjoy it.
Go ahead you'll enjoy yourself.................
First off I got paired up with three great guys, thank you Pete, Gene and Chris!!! I needed a shovel & pail for as much as I was in the sand but that being said the sand was great to play out of and this course mixes in a nice variety of position golf play with open shot making type holes. I really enjoyed the options I had to play holes a little differently then the standard driver / iron type scenario. Fairways were pristine and green and the rough was what the rough should be.....rough. My only complaint and it wasn't a show stopper.....I like greens to be a little faster, these were on the border of being almost a bit shaggy. Could have been protecting them a bit from our recent heat wave but they were a bit slow. I'm a 13 / 14 cap wise and I shot 88 and enjoyed the round immensely.
First time on this course.
Incredibly fun, challenging, and wide enough to be forgiving. Good thing because there are lots of sand traps.
Ron the starter is great and held up a four-some from teeing off and rushed my two-some to tee in front of them-saving us at least an hour!
I'll be back.
played this course every year since it opened. never has it looked so good
Great course and challenging from the tips! I’ll be back to have another go at it!
This is a nice course that is well kept and works to create a nice golfing experience. There were several groups that let us through that made the pace of play good - if they had not it would have been very slow. A course marshal for these groups of inexperienced golfers would be a positive adjustment for the course.
Lots of sand
Seems open but most greens protected by traps as well as fairways. bunkers to snare your drives.
Challenging with many bunkers. Well maintained. One of the best courses in Rochester area.
Nice layout and variety of shot selections to hit
I would have given the course conditions an excellent except a few greens were spotty (probably winter impact on the grass) but they were quick. Some greens had been "spiked" recently. We played after a tournament so they were bumpy from the foot traffic but that's to be expected with heavy play. The course overall was in great shape - tees, fairways, rough, traps. Ravenwood offers a variety of holes, elevation changes and plenty of opportunity to think about the shot you might hit on some tees. It's very picturesque and I definitely recommend trying it if you haven't played there previously. I enjoyed my round with a young man looking to turn pro so I played the black tees (couldn't go back to the tips with him) which added bit of yardage to my planned round from the blue tees. Plenty of tee selections allowing you to play a yardage that you are comfortable with.
We waited every shot. At the turn we waited a half an hour.
This course is well maintained and in great shape.
Really enjoyed my round.
