Ravisloe Country Club Greens Drainage
Mark Rowan and Adam Francis are just breaking ground this morning at Ravisloe Country Club in Homewood,Il in Chicagoland. This gorgeous old Ross gem was fashioned by Donald Ross in or around 1916, and as recently as 2001 David Esler was here and put some nice finishing touches on this great old club as shown here on the par 3 3rd-par 5:
XGD is completing one green here at Ravisloe CC working with superintendent Andrew Cross and are just getting underway this morning.
Anyone in the Chicagoland area that would like to stop by I would suggest later in the day today or early Wednesday morning. Please reach out to us if you do plan on coming by and we can do our best to ensure we have lots of our construction sequences open and available for viewing. We try to close up the patient for the evening as best we can before putting the patient to bed permanently when we are finished a green.
Ravisloe CC recently opened its doors to the public as an upscale golf facility, and it has allowed a golfing treasure of Donald Ross to be available to the golfing public, and is a thrilling way to give something back to the local community. Kudos to new owner Dr. Claude Gendreau, and his new team at Ravisloe are really breathing some fresh air in to this timeless golfing gem.
