About Ravisloe Country Club
Founded in 1901, Ravisloe Country Club was one of the first country clubs to be established in all of Chicagoland. The Spanish mission-style clubhouse was inaugurated in 1917 following a destruction by fire of its original building. For decades, it was the exclusive gathering place for many of Chicago’s rich and famous, and the stage for elegant and elaborate parties.
The golf course has been one of the most acclaimed in Chicagoland since its inception. Bearing the signature of world-renown course designer Donald Ross, it has played host to many great golfers of the last century.
Claude Gendreau, a conservationist and one who believes in equal opportunity, acquired the property in 2009 with goals of saving it from developers, and for making it accessible to all. He has said, “Such a special place should not be for the enjoyment of only privileged ones”. Since then, Ravisloe Country Club has been available for everyone to enjoy.
