Designed by famed golf course architect Donald Ross, Ravisloe Country Club is an 18-hole public golf facility located in Country Club Hills, Illinois approximately a mile from highways 80, 94 and 294.
Ravisloe brings many of the highlights of Ross designs to Chicago golf including ample tree-lined fairways, mounds and moguls, fescue grasses, cross bunkers, pot bunkers and fall-away slopes surrounding the green complexes to magnify mistakes. Ravisloe is registered with the Donald Ross Society, and is a must for Chicago golfers who respect and admire the best that Donald Ross brought to the game.
Ravisloe was one of the first golf clubs in the south suburbs to be located near a railroad line, providing easy access for Chicago residents. Idlewild Country Club in Flossmoor would follow suit seven years later and Olympia Fields Country Club joined the group when it was founded in 1915.
The club has hosted some of the legendary figures in the game, especially in its early days. Harry Vardon and Edward Ray won a match 3 and 2 against Chick Evans and Warren Wood in an epic battle at Ravisloe in 1913. Vardon was a five-time winner of the Open Championship at the time and Edward Ray was the defending Open Champion. Chick Evans won the US Open and the US Amateur in 1916 and would later win the US Amateur again in 1920.
