“A Mountaintop Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

After a skiing vacation at Snowshoe Mountain several years ago, I had hoped to someday return to enjoy the Gary Player designed Raven Golf Club. I finally was able make it happen on a golf trip last Fall. Great decision! It was definitely well worth the winding journey through the West Virginia wilderness to tee off from this gem. 'Spectacular' hardly describes this wonderful layout. The views, routing and scenery are beautiful and breathtaking. Really, almost any one of the 18 could easily qualify as the 'signature hole'. Additional proof that this is an architectual masterpiece is the fact that we could even play the course after the area had been inundated with 3" of rain the day before. Over the years, I have had the good fortune of playing some pretty amazing venues, such as Firestone South, Inverness, Kapalua Plantation Course, Longaberger, Mauna Lani South, etc., but the Raven definitely ranks in my top 5 favorite courses. In fact, the course made such a positive impression on us that my golf buddy and I are altering our golf trip plans so that we can include another round at The Raven again this year. So, if you are in the vicinity, by all means make every effort to play the Raven. You won't regret it!

“Most Beautiful Course in the Country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

For those of you who have not been, Raven @ Snowshoe Mountain is probably the most scenic, beautiful golf courses our great state and country has to offer! Quite challenging and requires accurate tee and approach shots, with fair greens that are normally kept at a quick, but playable speed. Some very severe elevation changes, mostly of the downhill variety...plus you're already up in the mountains so the ball will fly further than normal for most. Photo ops on just about every hole. Once you're done with your round, Route 66 Grill in the plaza on your way out has some fantastic sandwiches as well!
