Ravenwood Golf Club
An Excellent Outing
My friend and I made arrangements to play here on the recommendation of a local. We were totally blown away by the very friendly welcome upon checking in. The course was in excellent shape. The layout was very interesting. The most challenging part of the course were the undulating speedy greens. No putt went where you thought it should go. A very definite challenge to the average golfer. I would highly recommend this course to all golfers. The many tee blocks allowed for all levels of golfers to find their best distance of play.

Good Shape and Good Value
I had a very pleasant experience. The greens had been recently treated and were a bit slow, but overall the course was in very good condition. I paid $49 on GolfNow and well worth that price. I really liked the design of the course. Very playable and fare. Very good service.

Thoroughly enjoyable, beautiful condition
This course was really enjoyable to play. The layout is very "use-friendly" from the tees (probably one of the easiest driving courses I've ever played), but the greens are challenging enough that the course is no pushover. It's also set up at a very realistic level of distances for the average golfer (though there were 3 sub-300 yard par 4s from the blues, which I thought was probably 2 too many playing that short, even with the course playing at 6200 yards). And while I rode the course with a friend of mine, it would actually be a very walkable course, too. And on the day I played, the whole course--including the greens--was in beautiful shape.
My only minor criticism is that the course is a little pricey for its market at $55. But that's really hard to knock them for too much, because the course is really a gem.

Drains well, excellent track
It has been raining for several days, and sprinkled a little during the round. Cart path only, but the course drains well.
Even the traps were very playable when wet.
Maintenance is very good.
Greens large, and sloped.
Hilly, but not unfair.
This course is overpriced compared to others that are similar in quality in the area.

Great layout and challenging course
I played the course from the Tournament tees and found it quite challenging. The course layout is awesome with a mix of long par 3's , 4's and 5's and some shorter but still challenging holes thrown in.
This is the 2nd time I have played this course (Fall of 2013) and both times the course was in great shape. Its like playing a Private course. I can't wait to play it again this summer......& I live in CT!

This was our first time playing this course. We caught a great hot deal on golf now and used the opportunity to take a ride and check it out. It's approx. an hour drive for us, but it was well worth it.
Beautiful landscaping and scenery viiew from every tee. We noticed a lot of divot marks in all the fairways which is a shame that people don't make the effort to repair their own divots, but overall the fairways were great. Greens were a bit challenging and my husband played in the bunkers a few times and believe me, there are many of them. Ladies tees are a goof advantage and more than fair on every whole. Would love to play this course again sometime. Love golfnow for making all of our rounds of golf so affordable!

this course is in great shape, well taken care of
From the tee blocks to the greens fantastic
Played from the forward tees and most of the danger is taken away, sorry to say. I wish more courses would leave some challenge from the forward tees in play.

Course in excellent condition with the exception of a few greens where people just refuse to repair their ballmarks.
