Great challenege!

I loved this course ... it was on the shorter side, but it really made you think about where to miss, where to leave approach shots (above or below the hole, etc.) Had to hit both draws and fades off the tee. A couple good birdie opportunities. Highly recommend!

4.5 Stars Another lovely day at Ravi

Simply put one of the best fun old schoolers you can play in Chicagoland. A gem and we're lucky to have access to it. It was busy...pace was never an issue....played in well under 4 hours mid afternoon! Conditioning was very good except the greens - a little slower and bumpy than I've experienced over the past few years. Other than than everything was great. 1/4 star downgrade on the greens and I'm dinging them another 1/4 star because none of their on course domestic beer selections (budweiser products mainly) is my wheelhouse and their on course import list seems to lack creativity as well. $52 senior rate is very fair and decent value for the quality of the course and facilities. Highly recommended.

Always fun to play here

Always in decent shape rough is alittle.high and greens were alittle baked but everything's always good here. Outdoor dining after and good food. Yeah now that its getting hotter hopefully they dont let the greens get to squirrelly and lost a few balls in the thick rough that hadnt been mowed but no big deal its golf and it was fun on a beautiful day!

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.

Amazing

Everything about Ravisloe is stellar. The course was hard but fair. Front 9 greens are ridiculous! Thankfully they were playing slow. Not enough good things to say about it

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.
