Great track

Beautiful, challenging course. Was a little slow pace around 4:20, Marshall was pretty active trying to get people in front we were waiting on to speed up but they were a little slow. Course is short but punishing.

Ravisloe

It rained really hard the night before we played I called Ravisloe to inquire the Course condition before driving 45 minutes each way. The course said there were one or two holes with standing water when in reality there were 18 holes with substantial standing water on the fairways or rough. I’d love to play that classic course when a snorkel and flippers weren’t needed.

Great traditional track

Love the layout. Very traditional. Good fairways. Good greens. Good bunkers. The rough was a little long but that might be because of the rain. Overall a nice challenging golf course.

Nice outing

Enjoyable round. Course in good condition for time of year. Recent aeration of fairways and greens made conditions a bit slower. Most of course had leaves pretty well cleaned up on fairways and greens. Look forward to playing again in warmer weather.

Fun Layout - Worth a Play

Came out here and played on a day off. The course was in fairly good shape despite having aerated greens 2+ weeks ago. Course overall is tightly lined with trees but allows for you to spray the ball and still be in-play. The greens are small and undulated. Bunkering and mounding constantly keep you on your toes and is great to keep your short game sharp. Would love to play these greens in peak condition. Definitely worth a trip if you are considering!

Ravisloe 10/2019

This is one of my favorite courses in the Chicagoland Area, a Donald Ross course. Generous fairways, large undulating, tricky greens, deep bunkers and mature trees. Definitely a challenging course. Staff are spot on courteous and friendly. Outdoor bar at the clubhouse overlooks the 18th green. Our group plays here a couple times each year, and they have also hosted a recent GC AM Tour Event.
Definitely a round I look forward to each time.

16 players, no real hiccups. Marshall's were cool. Winter rates make this course a great value.

Worth the play

Ravisloe is a great private course that has been opened to the public. The course is worth a play or two. It has a great deal of character with small some small greens that can be difficult to putt depending on pin placement. Most holes are guarded by somewhat deep bunkers that require soft hands and skill to come out of and save a stroke. The price was more reasonable in October. In the summer the fee can be as high as $80. If affordable to you I would say a must play depending on your budget. Watching GolfNow helps with getting a better rate.

Love this course ! Great layout , the course gets better every time I come out, the management is making improvements continuously.
If you can get online thru their website and book a discounted green fee, all the more better.
Everyone who works at the course are friendly
