You can't go wrong playing this terrific course in Saugatuck. It's a very interesting layout with lots of variety and beautiful scenery. Great pro shop and restaurant.

We signed up as a twosome and we were linked with a single upon getting to the first tee box. While we were a bit disappointed that we would not be golfing alone, we quickly found that this single was a blessing. This is an expensive course to play but it is very beautiful and very well kept. It is... More

Excellent Palmer design; good bunker placement and many risk-reward. Fairways meander through wooded terrain; you'll rarely see another group. Staff is good; one too many divots perhaps but still a treat to play.

We golfed the Ravines after some pretty serious rains but found the course in great shape. Soggy but not puddled. They must have great drainage. I found the carries over swampy areas to really challenge my game. Beautiful western Michigan feel with paths through woods. Don't be afraid of this course but choose wisely the tees you play from.

Excellent course, manicured well, challenging but women friendly. Great greens, driving and putting range, pricey but worth it.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We've played here several years ago & liked it. We came back this year & it's even better. Course was in great shape. It winds through the woods of Western Michigan with plenty of elevation changes. There are some blind shots so if it's your first time it's best to play with a "regular". You'll need all your clubs &... More

This is my third year playing The Ravines. One's short game and putting skills are challenged on every hole. The fairway lay ups required me to use proper course management. I am not a long ball hitter. This course plays better for those who are prudent in club choices. High handicappers will not enjoy playing this course as they would... More

Loved the layout and the character of the clubhouse and surrounding area. Can't go wrong with booking a tee time here or just going for a cocktail and lunch.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We've played here twice in the last month and really enjoyed the course. There is not much water but there are quite a few forced carries over swamp lands and a few ravines. Many times the forced carries are 60 to 70 yards in front of the greens. Makes it tough for a duffer. This course is much better than... More
