Ravisloe Country Club was established in 1901 by an ambitious and visionary group comprised largely of members of Chicago’s Standard Club.
In the early 20th century, the Club invited the world-renowned Donald Ross to put his imprint on the course. The Ross renovation rendered Ravisloe much more distinctive and challenging. Ravisloe features a Spanish Mission-style masterpiece evoking all the splendor and elegance of the Gilded Age during which it was built.
Ravisloe is about an hour commute from downtown Chicago and located close to 80/94 or just a 20 min Metra ride from the city.
Metra riders can receive complimentary pick up/drop off at the Homewood Metra station, located just outside the front gates.
