Ravenwood Golf Club
Ravenwood is one of the top public courses in all of western new york, it has been the measuring stick for other courses as far as course management and overall facilities and equipment is concerned with always top notch service. However this past season they were hit hard with the winter weather and did serious damage to the greens. As such the greens were unpredictable and difficult to navigate on an already tough to play course. Much of the summer season we have avoided returning to the course after a couple of outings. Now that the season is nearing an end, the condition is at the best it has ever been, it shows the staff have been working hard at it, I certainly hope that the next coming season it would remain the same.

I live near Ravenwood, and you won't find a better public course in Western NY. While I wouldn't pay the rates that they charge on the weekends, it's a great course, and the deals through golfnow.com are great. Highly recommend it. Also, if you go out as a single or twosome, the people that I've been paired with are fantastic--never gotten a yahoo in my 10+ visits.

Watch your approach
Very, very nice course. It is fairly straight for the average hitter. Lots of bunkers, but fine, fine real golf course sand not construction sand. Don't worry about landing in a bunker it's like playing out of butter. I love this sand! There are some holes with water to hit over with all the predictable dangers. The approach to the greens is most often off to the side limiting the bump and run options. The greens were very hard for mid October. Come in at a shallow angle and you are chipping twice, every hole.

It's almost the middle of October and Ravenwood is still in pristine condition. Greens are perfect, sand was still sand and not a dirt mixture, and no leaves on fairways. Would go back in a heart beat.

Have played this course every year now in the fall for the past three years. Brought two foursome this year. From checking in thru to completion of round, it is a excellent experience.
Course was in excellent shape. Upon arrival we were informed that we were behind a USGA Regional qualifier however it did not slow the pace of play. Completed round in just over 4 hours.
Will be back next year, so keep up the great service Ravenwood.

Will go Back
I travelled close to 3 hours to play this course, and will do it again. I was not there to play Ravenwood specifically, but I will next time. The course is set up for all levels of golfer, and was a enjoyable round.
There was a few holes where the road noise from the Thruway way bothersome, but even that could not detract from the great experience

nice golf course
very nice , extremely open fairways with many height changes and undulating greens. Highly recommend fellow golfers to give it try. My foursome played it on a fairly cold late summer day with at times light rain. I'm a bogey golfer and course is challenging but yu can score.
