“Wonderful Course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

This is a lesser knwon, but quite beautiful course. It is a links style course, with 6,000 trees that were brought onsite when the course was constructed. Has the flavor of a course in the midwest or east, but the weather advantages that Phoenix has to offer. The tee choices let you tailor the experience to your capabilities, from duffer to low handicapper.

“Course conditions didn't match green fees”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

The Raven is a quality golf course with many interesting holes and we did enjoy ourselves. However, at $149 a pop we didn't feel the overall maintenance of the course matched these rates. If your looking for more of a desert layout and great views, there are many other choices. We also noticed some type of fertilization they were spraying just off the fairways and your ball would then be "stickey". Overall though it was enjoyable and the staff very friendly.

“Nice course, great management”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Course is very nice, priced high compared to other public access courses in the valley. I was very pleased with the pro shop manager, who was very gracious in helping out a non-profit organization that I support with some items for our silent auction.

“Weekday golf”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

With the coupon from newspaper, it was $60ish. Very well maintained course in South PHX. Good practice area, free range balls with green fee. Even on a quiet mid-week day, the beverage cart was out and madeit around often. Had a very good sandwich and salad in the cafe.

“Excellent Golf Course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

My son and I have played golf at the Raven many times. The course is always maintained very well and reasonably priced. It is a challenge with a lot of mounds on the fairways and the greens as well. It has a very nice pro shop and you can usually find some good deals. The clubhouse is very nice too. We will continue to play this course - definitely one of our favorites.
