Top Chicago-Area Course

I still get excited to play here. I love overall feel of the place. I still remember reading about this place going public. I couldn't wait to play here.
Very challenging well bunkered course.
I seen the course in a new light today and realized wy I like it so much. It reminds me of a Langford & Moreau.
The greens are less elevated, but the bunkering and mounding has the same feel. While the course lacks much elevation change. It is very walking friendly.

On to the review.

Overall Rating*
I debated if this was worthy of a 5 star rating.
I gave it 5 , swayed by own personal taste
Pace Of Play -
Pace was excellent today , as the course did not open until after the heavy rains had drained off. Our group was one of the 1st to tee off.

Course Conditions - Course was in great shape in spite of the heavy rains. Bunkers are some of the best in the area. Thought the greens were rolling slow, but it was wet.

Staff Friendliness - Most of the staff I encountered was relatively new. They were pleasant. The rangers seemed a bit edgy

Value For The Money - Value was good today, but this course caters to the higher end golfer.

Course Layout - Well designed course has plenty of challenges for all but the most demanding golfers,
fun and fair.

Off-Course Amenities - Nice patio and bar area
The menu and drinks are a bit pricey.

one of 3 great public courses in the area.
Play them all you can.

Past its prime

This may have been an exclusive course at one time but it’s pretty tired now. Tee boxes were in rough shape. The clubhouse is pretty run down. This course is not worth what they’re charging.

Enjoyed the course

Walked the course and really enjoyed. The course was in very good condition. Difficult well bunkered par 3's. They gave us a golf book and should have read vs relying on app/laser as some very helpful tips. The greens fees seem to be alittle high but would play here again.

Great Ross Course

Great course designed by Donald Ross and open since the early 1900s. Although it is an older course, it is plenty long and provides nice challenges with layout. Ravisloe has a great feel, great staff, and great course.

Nice course

Very nice course and most facilities good for a public course. Driving range only has mats which is a big negative but I l limit range time as practice is over rated. Course in good shape. Chipping and putting good. Don Ross design evident and challenging. Ranger was a bit challenging. We were told we were way behind. 10 minutes at the turn and spot on at the end is way behind. Group behind us at worst were pulling up to there next shot as we were pulling away from ours. Drink cart and 19th hole service outstanding. Food and drink delicious and reasonably priced.
