Overpriced - poor conditioned golf course.
Oct 2020
Nice layout for the golf course. For the price that was charged the golf course should have been in much better shape. Tees were pretty beat up, fairways were only in so-so shape, and greens were really beat up pretty badly.
This is an "old school" country club and clubhouse. Restroom in the clubhouse had toilet that was backed up and would not flush. Pretty disgusting.
I would consider playing there again if there were some assurance that the course would be in better condition

I joined two leagues for the upcoming year. Got my wife and neighbors to also join the Friday night couples league.
The course keeps getting better and better every year!

My book club went to brunch at the restaurant. We did not golf, but had a great meal and discussion on our monthly book.

An absolutely Beautiful Course!!!

Since going public this place hasn't missed a beat the course is in great shape and I look forward to playing here again soon.
The only drawback is the sand sand sand!
The bunkers are merciless but they add so much dimension to this layout.
Make a Tee time and spend a few bucks you won't disappointed.🏌️🏌️🏌️

Incredible golf course
Jun 2017
After caddying here for 8 years, I was saddened to hear the course went public. Traveled from St. Louis to relive old times. Course is in great condition. Club house is as beautiful as ever. Staff was friendly and accommodating. It is a little pricey, but well worth it for the caliper of course and the way it is maintained.

A great way to spend a summer afternoon
Aug 2016 • Friends
Chicago is the public golf capital of the United States with more quality courses than anyone can play in any other city. One of the best public courses is Ravisloe Country Club, which used to be one of the most exclusive private country clubs in the Chicago area. Located at 18231 Park Avenue in south suburban Homewood, it was built in 1901 on the 120-acre Briggs farm. The original golf course was laid out by Theodore Moreau and James Foulis. In 1916, world renowned golf course architect Donald Ross was invited to put his imprint on the course. Ross' fine tuning, which continued until l924, was praised by some of the greatest golfers of that era, including Harry Vardon, Edward Ray, Warren Wood and Chick Evans. Its 1902 clubhouse was replaced by a Spanish Mission style masterpiece designed by George Nimmons, who also designed the noteworthy clubhouse at nearby Olympia Fields. In 2008, after 107 years as a storied country club with a proud and strong Jewish heritage, Ravisloe closed its doors. Enter Dr. Claude Gendreau, an acclaimed veterinary surgeon, who purchased the property and opened the course to the public. Today, it has established a well-earned reputation as one of the finest public layouts in the country. How about $40 for seniors on Tuesdays with a cart? It's a great way to spend a summer afternoon. The par-70, 6,321-yard layout, which was rated one of the top 12 courses in Illinois in a 2012 survey, is easily identified as a Donald Ross design with its extensive bunkering around the small greens and waste areas. Despite its lack of length, Ravisloe presents many mental challenges amid its tree-lined fairways. There are three par-3s on the front nine and only one par-5 on the back. The par-5, 13th is regarded as the course's signature hole, a dogleg right that tempts long hitters to cut the corner or land in a large bunker. While Ravisloe is open to the public for golf, it continues to offer its facilities for private functions, including weddings and corporate outings.

Great Venue for Special Event, Wedding, or Just a quiet Round of Golf
Nov 2016 • Business
Lovely grounds, Good meeting, special event and wedding spaces. Very efficient staff. Large groups can be comfortably accommodated on beautiful outside patio with very large adjacent indoor facilities on either side. Pro shop well equipped. Close to Metro and La Banque Hotel which will provide complimentary shuttle service. The food in the 19th hole is very good too.

Gorgeous Country Club That Welcomes The Public
Jan 2017
Former exclusive Private Country Club is now open to the public and a great treasure! Perfect location for weddings and private parties but we love eating off the grill menu on the back patio during the summer. The golf course is pristine and annual memberships are available.

Homewood Stories and Homewood Science Club are just two groups that host monthly events open to the public. The Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra have a few outdoor concerts during the summer. A lovely facility with scenic grounds. If you are taking the Metra Electric or Amtrack from downtown Chicago, a short walk from the Homewood Train Stop.
