The Golf Course
Designed by renowned golf course architect Larry Packard, Ravinia Green's golf course stands as a testament to his distinctive style. The smaller greens, adorned with gentle slopes meticulously designed for precise approach shots, embody the essence of Packard's architectural finesse. Bunkers seamlessly blend into mounds with elevated floors, enhancing both the visual and strategic aspects of the course.
Stretching across 6,866 yards, the golf course gracefully winds through vibrant fairways, groomed greens, and strategic bunkers, demanding precision and finesse from each swing. Water hazards on over ten holes add an exhilarating risk-and-reward element, challenging golfers to showcase their mettle amidst the captivating scenery. Majestic weeping willows, aged and graceful, line the fairways, casting dappled shadows that contribute to an atmosphere of tranquility. The abundant greenery, punctuated by bursts of vibrant blooms, transforms the golfing experience into a visual and aesthetic delight.

Caddies in golf are believed to have started in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1817 and since then have been synonymous with the game. Not only can a caddie make a walking round of golf easier on the player physically, but they also use their expertise to help any golfer with strategic decisions to help lower their score.
At Ravinia Green Country Club, we are proud to have a wonderful caddie program that supports the Evans Scholarship Foundation. Each year, caddies from our club are eligible to apply for this scholarship which provides full housing and college tuition for caddies with limited financial means. We had caddies win scholarships in both 2018 and 2019.
