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 Info

As you drive up to the club house the road is lined with beautiful boulders that add to the scenic layout and beautiful rolling hills of
the course. Every staff member in the pro shop greets you with a smile and makes you feel as if you are the only customer on the course.

The greens and fairways consist of bent and poa grass. Every other week the greens are top dressed, cut vertically and rolled maintaining a 9.5 to 10 on the stimpmeter. The greens were perfectly built and have the best drainage in the area. So why is drainage critical? With the proper drainage system it helps “waterproof” the greens allowing for water to drain fast. It
will allow for faster greens and give a more consistent play.

With rolling hills, elevated tee boxes and multiple ponds and lakes this course is not only fun to play but it also challenging for any
level golfer. Golfers come from Buffalo, Syracuse and even Toronto to play this course, and they absolutely love it.

The 18th hole hands down is the best hole. You have to lay up off the tee, and then hit your approach over a giant pond to the green that is shared by the 9th & 18th holes. Big numbers can be put up on this hole if you are not careful.

When at Greystone make sure you stop in and grab a bite to eat and a drink. They have an amazing bar for a public course. From the custom woodwork to the staff, their friendly atmosphere makes you feel like one of the family.

This course is beautiful, the staff is top-notch and the golfers do nothing but rave about Greystone.

Best Features

Some of Greystone Golf Clubs best features include:

  • Great course and in superb condition any time of the year
  • Large elevatation changes make each hole a challenge
  • Links style holes with your more traditional Northeast US type holes
  • Large greens that roll true each and every hole
  • Hands down the best public course in the Rochester area
