First time golfing here - definitely won't be the last! The course is well-maintained and the scenery is beautiful. Royal treatment from the pro shop to the course marshall to the cart team. Really nice touch was the scented cold towels to cool you off in the blistering heat! We were teamed up with two members and we could not... More

$55 green fee gets you round of golf & 1 Gatorade. I live in Phoenix area and have played/organized many tournaments in the area (including this course) during the year. Therefore based on the overall current course condition it's worth $35-40. Be sure to pick up a cold towel by the cart/driving range at the start, between 9s and end... More

Staff were super friendly, and helpful. The course was in great shape, and has it's challenges. Lots of water available throughout the course for the hot days, and beers were reasonably priced.

Course was in excellent condition-easy to get to from our hotel in Phoenix. Good value. We played from the white tees -challenging and interesting holes. Greens were true and fast. Pace of play good -4 hours no problem.

Great experience from start to finish. Some of the best greens I've played on in Phoenix area. Started out on back nine which was fine since it was first time here. Highly recommend.

Golfing at the Raven was a great experience. Everyone there from the bag drop staff to the starter to the pro shop staff treated you with respect. The course was very playable for all handicaps. Fairways and greens were in excellent condition. Definitely a must play if you are in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area.

Test your putting skills at the Raven. Greens were fast and in great shape. Course is lined with thousands of pine trees, so you don't feel you are in the desert. The par threes are challenging especially if you miss the greens. Bunkers are somewhat hard to ply from as sand is not true sand but small gravel like stuff.... More

This course was well kept, scenic and the marshalls didn't ride us on the course. We aren't slow players, and get tired of being confronted when only minutes behind. The people were kind, drink cart prices very reasonable and the dogs at the turn were yummy. Ball sits up nice in fairways, tee boxes and greens were in super shape...... More

We recently started our golf vacation with 18 holes at the Raven. Looking back on the trip, this course is a great "starter" round considering the difficulty of other courses we were playing (WeKoPa, Greyhawk, Troon). The course was in good condition, the round was well managed, and the staff in the restaurant was a blast. If you are a... More
