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.

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.

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

Beautiful course, very well maintained. Excellent practice area (grass tee, short game area). Course is comparable to EagleRidge (Galena IL), Missouri Bluffs (StL), and Geneva National (Lake Geneva WI). Play the right tees, and the course will be challenging, though fair and fun...pay attention to the GPS, there are a couple holes where the driving area is limited and semi-blind.... More

My husband and I played this course for the first time over Memorial Day weekend. We loved it! I shot my lowest 9 hole round ever here on the front nine. We won't talk about the 18 hole score. Anyway, the course was is perfect condition and is challenging. You can't just go out and pound your driver. It is... More

Went to the Ravines with my son recently. We both enjoyed the experience very much. The course was in good shape. Most importantly, the greens were in excellent conditions, This is a course that if you are not playing well, you can struggle. A lot of forced carries and very wooded. Make sure you play the correct tees. Overall, I... More
