Course Info

Ravenwood opened in 2002 and is one of the most beautiful courses with its amazing bunkers and gorgeous bent grass fairways. Finishing your round on the eighteenth hole could not be better. It is a par 5 that bends slightly to the right. It has 10 bunkers, 7 of which surround the green making the hole one of the most challenging. It shares a beautiful view of the clubhouse that sits within large beautiful trees right behind a natural amphitheater created by a hill.

Ravenwood offers some of the best golf conditions as well as some challenging holes. They have hosted many tournaments and have been home to the New York State Men’s Amateur Golf Championship. Ravenwood’s strength is putting on golf events. From the great conditions and challenging course to the GPS in every cart, they do them well.

The GPS is one thing that really makes this public course stand out. It shows you yardage to the pin, your scorecard and can even incorporate a leader board should you be playing in a tournament.

The practice and banquet facilities at Ravenwood are some of the finest in the Rochester area. The practice facility is one of the largest with a 12,000 square foot practice green and a golf range that is lit until 10pm. They offer seven target greens and a special short game practice area which includes bunkers. The newly renovated banquet facility, with the ability to hold up to 200 guests, is beautiful with large sliding glass doors that open to a garden with a lighted waterfall. In addition to the beauty of the greens and facilities, the staff and management are very courteous and helpful as well.

Course History

Oak Hill Country Club started out in 1901 as only 9 holes on 85 acres on the banks of the Genesee River.  The clubhouse was no more than a converted farm house.  By 1921 Oak Hill had doubled in size and had a new clubhouse, so when the University of Rochester proposed a land swap in 1921 it was a tough decision for members.  However, the country club decided to take the university up on their offer, and moved the club to a 355 acre plot in nearby Pittsford. This decision ended up benefiting Oak Hill, University of Rochester and the City of Rochester.

Now with triple the land of the old country club, Oak Hill had room for two 18-hole courses. Designed by Donald Ross, they became the East Course and the West Course. The East Course – which hosts the major tournaments – has had several changes made over the years, first by Robert Trent Jones Sr. in the early 1960’s and later (and more recently for the 1989 Open and 2003 PGA) by Tom Fazio and his design group. In 1941 the Times-Union, a local paper at the time posted a $5000 purse which attracted the greatest golfers in the world, including names such as Sam Snead, Walter Hagen, and Ben Hogan. This tournament, won by Snead, put Oak Hill on the national golf map. Several prestigious tournaments would be held at Oak Hill over the next 62 years, including six men’s major championships.

In 2009, the East Course was ranked 11th in Golf Digest’s list of America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses.

Course Info

Locust Hill Country Club is located in the towns of Henrietta and Pittsford approximately five miles southeast of Rochester, New York. Locust Hill is a private full service country club that offers its membership a championship 18 hole golf course designed by the Scottish Pro and Architect Seymour Dunn. The club offers its members complete practice facilities, three hard surface tennis courts, two platform tennis courts, olympic sized swimming pool, a complete state-of-the-art fitness center, and full service dining room and banquet facilities.

Locust Hill Country Club is a full service, year round country club which provides a prestigious, yet friendly and welcoming environment for all of its members, their families, and their guests. By doing so, Locust Hill Country Club also provides a unique and desirable alternative to other country clubs.

Locust Hill Country Club originated in the summer of 1925 by thirty of the younger and more progressive business and professional men of Rochester and members of the Rochester Gyro club. They purchased from Frank Zornow the “Locust Hill Farm” – eighty-nine acres of farm land on the north side of Jefferson Road in Pittsford. The barn was converted into a Locker House, with a fully equipped Pro Shop, bag storage, showers, lockers, and lounge room where food was served. The farm house was made into the clubhouse with 40 lockers on the second floor for the lady players. The course initially featured nine excellent holes for golf.

The Club soon expanded to 225 members and in 1927 purchased 52 acres South of Jefferson Road. It expanded to eighteen holes following the same careful procedure as before, taking in the additional members required for financing the expansion, with these new members being allowed to extend their payments over a period of two years.

In 1984 the clubhouse underwent a $1 million dollar renovation that connected the main clubhouse and the locker room building with the addition of the main members dining room on the main level. A patio off the dining room was enclosed to create a separate bar area in 1991. The clubhouse received a complete $3million interior renovation in 1998 which included the addition of the three-story octogon “Loggia”.  The master plan for the clubhouse was completed in 2006 with an addition to the ballroom, a 2,000 state-of-the-art fitness center, and exterior decks and patios overlooking the golf course.

Locust Hill Country Club is the home of the Wegman’s Rochester International, an annual event on the LPGA Tour. The LPGA has competed on Locust Hill’s championship course every year since 1977. However, this year it will host the 2010 LPGA Championship presented by Wegmans starting June 21st with the Wegmans Pro-Am.

Locust Hill Country Club is proud of the fine quality of food and service offered to the membership. Executive Chef Jason Walker and his culinary team have crafted menus that range from comfortable and casual items on our Pub Menu to exciting and more cutting edge preparation and presentations on the main dinner menu.

The club offers the membership two comfortable dining rooms for a’la carte service with total seating for 160 people. Banquet facilities at Locust Hill will seat from 4 to 400 people.  The newly expanded and remodeled Ballroom with exterior decks overlooking the golf course offer an excellent venue for entertaining.  All banquets at Locust Hill must be for or sponsored by a member of the club.

Best Features

Locust Hill Country Club also has a very active schedule of golfing events, including:

  • Friday Night Scotches
