These accomodations are crazy. The interior decor is so gaudy you wouldn't believe. It looks like the kind of place that your grandma would say is really nice. How about those vine work wallpaper borders all over the room? Nice touch. And oh, the wooden...More

We really enjoyed this course. The only downside we had was we had to stay on the cartpath because of overseeding. The course was well maintained. It was also a forgiving course, it gave you chances to take a tough approach or an easy approach....More

The course had just come out of overseeding and was in fantastic shape. Realistic challenge for a mid 80's golfer. Highly recommended.

this course has improved by leaps and bounds in the last couple years. Conditions, service, restaurant/pro shop all very nice. Their OB City Card is a great deal for any golfer living/working in the Phoenix area.

The Raven is not a typical desert course. It has many trees, flowers, some water, and of course, lots of sand. The fairways and tees were in great shape, but the greens were not as good as most of the courses we've played in the...More

Loose a few find a few golf balls. This is a great challenge with lots of uphills and downhills. The greens are not in good shape, most likely prepping for the summer change over. The fairways are perfect. Nice landscape and friendly staff.

Rentals were $60 with 2 sleeves of balls. I think they were either Taylormade or Calaways.
