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.

Well kept

A well kept and maintained golf course
We got an 8 AM tee time which apparently is rare as the early times are usually reserved for members, so completed the round in 4 hours, which a fare pace for a 4some with varied golfing abilities.

Very good golf course.

Staff greets you on arrival and very well organized. Above average practice facilities. Golf course in excellent condition. Very good fairways, bunkers in good condition. Greens are quick and roll true. Lots of undulation on the greens. I am 68 and played at 6,200 yards and played with 2 good players in their mid 20s and they played at 7,000 yards. A good test for all of us. Give the course a try, you will be pleased with the experience.

A Must Play!!

Don’t miss the opportunity to play here! Course was in fantastic shape from tee to green. Lush and fair with opportunities to score.
Bunkers are deep and can be hard to get out of for some players. I’ll definitely be back!!

lush and very playable

the course is in very good condition. A fairly straightforward layout. Wide fairways and big inviting greens with a few unexpected greenside bunkers to catch you once in a while... great aesthetics as well. definitely play this course some more.
