Raven Golf Club - Phoenix features a one-of-a-kind round of desert golf. Its fairways are lined with Georgia pine, and its greens have more tiers than one - the kind of golf course that only Gary Panks and David Graham could imagine, and a can't-miss on your next golf trip to Phoenix. Over the ages, the golf club has garnered all sorts of recognition.

The layout features plush, rolling fairways framed by thousands of mature trees, as well as vistas of rugged desert mountains and the Phoenix skyline. The golf course's flexible, strategic design offers a challenge for all players, and the variety it presents will give you the opportunity to use nearly every club in your bag.

That said, the Raven Golf Club - Phoenix might be the perfect place to turn a business trip to Phoenix into a golf trip to Phoenix - it's handy to Sky Harbor Airport and downtown Phoenix.

Christmas Eve Round

Great course that should offer fun and challenge for all skill levels. Fairways are in great shape, greens are a little slow but in good shape. Sad to say the bunkers are in great shape, like actual bunkers.

Fair and fun course

Played with my wife. I'm a 14 and she is a 28. We both had fun on this course. Challenging enough to hold my interest but still fun for most handicaps.
Outstanding practice facilities. Great range and chipping green.
Food was awesome. I had the pulled pork tacos at the turn and they were delicious. A little messy for the back nine but worth it.
Pace of play was very slow. We had to start on the back 9 and waited a very long time at the turn. Could use some active marshalling.
Still, totally worth it despite the pace.

Great Condition

Enjoyed playing Raven again, ome of my favorite courses in the Phoenix area. Challenging but fair if you can keep the ball in the fairway. The greens were a little slower than usual probably due to frost delay.If you want an enjoyable round of golf, I highly recommend.

Excellent exceeding expectation adventure

My first chance to play the Raven. Outstanding. Very scenic very playable. Super nice staff. Pace of play was good for a sat afternoon.

Only issue was lots of ball marks on green. Most had been repaired just not grown back. Just standard for a course with this much play.

VERY ENJOYABLE ROUND OF GOLF
