If you looked up average country golf course in a dictionary, there would be a picture of this place. The course is in good shape, save for a few patchy fringes and 1-2 greens had small bare spots. The layout is rather mundane, with a lot of straight holes, especially on the front 9. The back has a few holes with character, like 12, 13, 16, and 17. On 12 and 17 you have tight tee shots, 16 has a tight approach, and 13 is a nice wedge par 3 over a ravine. The course is not very long either, so it's good for basically anyone. Staff was fairly friendly in the clubhouse. Bottom line, it's not a course you're going to write home about, but if you want a confidence building round on a decently conditioned course, this would do.

Nice layout, preferred back nine to front nine in terms of layout, front is fairly flat, back has some contours and more trouble to get into...nice variety.

The Ravines has always been a study in underachievement. It's a layout with decent potential but they have never invested the money necessary to really make it nice. The greens are usually in good shape at moderate speed, but the rest of the course is rough as usual. Weeds abound, bunkers are in terrible shape (just hard dirt, not sand), and the grass on the tee boxes looked about like my front yard. No, actually, my yard looks a lot better.

The Ravines remains a place to get your game well and shoot a good score. If you aren't finicky about conditioning, at $25 with a cart it's a decent value. Any more than that, and you wonder why you paid it.

The front 9 of The Ravines is a links style running through some homes. It is not bad, but not terribly interesting either.

The back 9 are carved around a natural series of ravines, thus the name. The back 9 is MUCH more interesting. If you can only play 9 this is the side to play!!

The four times I played this course the guy in the pro shop was very dismissive. I usually like to carry a metal water bottle around in my bag while I play in case there is no on course water (which there isn't at The Ravines), when I ask the man in the pro-shop if there is somewhere I can fill my bottle he says, "only here in my sink." *long pause* "So, could I get some water?" *long awkward pause, with a smirk* "Yeah, I'll fill it." Apparently unless you buy a drink he isn't gonna be nice and makes you feel like asking for water is like asking for the keys to his car or something.

Play the back 9 once, then go play somewhere closer to town where you get treated with respect.

This is a very good course. If you play from the tips it is a very long course. The price along with the perfect greens makes this a must play course. The fairways are in excellent condition and well taken care of . The owners are continually updating the course with new sand in the traps and beautifying their course. The back nine is made up of several ravines, thus the name. A must play.
