Detailed description of Ravisloe Country Club

Ravisloe Country Club is a Public 18 hole golf course located in Homewood, Illinois.

Ravisloe Country Club was established in 1901. The original golf course, laid out by Theodore Moreau and James Foulis, covered 101 acres. In 1910, the Club purchased an adjacent 55-acre parcel and revamped the entire golf course. Well-known golf architect William Watson oversaw changes to the course during the 1910-13 timespan. In 1916, the Club invited Donald Ross to put his imprint on the course. The Ross renovation, carried out from 1917-19, rendered Ravisloe much more distinctive and challenging. Fine-tuning per Ross directives continued until 1924.

In 2001, Club membership commissioned David Esler to restore the course features consistent with Ross principles.

In late 2008, after 107 years as a storied country club with a proud and strong Jewish heritage, Ravisloe closed its doors.

In February 2009, Dr. Claude Gendreau purchased Ravisloe. He enlisted GolfVisions Management, Inc., a Chicagoland-based firm, to reopen and operate Ravisloe as an upscale public course.

Par for the course is 70. From the back tees the course plays to 6,321 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,243 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 13, a par-5 that plays to 550 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 6, a par-3 that plays to 135 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 2, a 535 yard par-5 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Ravisloe Country Club is # 15, a 146 yard par-3.

Great old layout. Many mature trees. Undulating greens a plus. Bunkering is difficult and one of the better features of this course.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Ravisloe was a private club that opened to the public a couple of years ago. It is a Donald Ross course--enough said. You seldom find a private course open to the public. This is why I play Ravisloe every trip to Chicagoland. The early 20th century course layout is different from the courses built after World War II.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again
