Raven Rock is a beautifully scenic and challenging golf course which any level of golfer can enjoy.

Raven Rock has an extremely welcoming and helpful staff. The pro shop guys go out of their way to ensure your golfing experience is a pleasant one. The dining room staff also provides great food and service as well. I have never encountered a bad experience at this location. I often recommend this course to everyone I know.

Great course to play and has exceptional views!

Overall the course was in good shape however the back 9 needs a little more attention but was very playable. I will play this course many more times in the future.

Beautiful Appalachian Course

This is a beautiful and challenging course in the eastern Kentucky mountains. The front nine is situated atop the mountain and the back nine works its way down the side of the mountain. This course is very well maintained with beautiful greens. There is only one dog on the course and I have never had any trouble out of him. I especially liked the par 3 14th with its elevated tee box and circular green surrounded by water. Compared to other courses in the area this one deserves five stars. I will be frequenting this course. My only complaint is that it's always busy, but what do you expect with such a nice course

Great background of the mountain terrain surrounding this course.

Out of the ordinary course with many elevation changes and unique approaches. The staff have done an execellent job of breaking up the fivesome and sixsomes that have in the past plagued this course. I've played three times in the last 10 days and am pleased to say that the pace of play was normal-quick.

The course is in great shape considering the time of year. My only gripe is with the public. Have some respect and repair your ball marks. Far two many divots for me to repair on a couple holes. Total classless for anyone to ignore their ball mark in my opinion.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful on all matters.

Fun course to play with very good greens.

Links style course on top of a mountain. The greens are always in good shape. Very challenging with beautiful views of the mountains.

Staff was very rude.

The staff had dogs all over the course. My ball was being chased by the staff's dog and they were constantly barking during play. This is by far the worst managed course I have ever played. Sand traps were unraked, carts needed recharged after only 9 holes, no water in any coolers, and trash was all over the course. Very poor!!!!!
I wouldn't play here again if they paid me to play.

I play there frequently. They have only one very well mannered dog. To say they have multiple barking dogs is a huge exaggeration and unnecessary.
