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.

Great golf experience

We had our own foursome and the pace of play was very pleasant at 4 hours. The course was cart path only so the course was pristine. I wish the course was always cart path only as it felt like a private club. Inside amenities are also very nice and the pro shop staff super friendly. I will definitely play this course again

Love The Raven

I’ve played here a number of times and always enjoy it. Cartpath only because of recent over seeding slowed the pace a bit but not bad. Some of the bunkers were not in great condition with a lot of gravel mixed in. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were beautiful. I’ll definitely play here again.

Love the entire facility & Staff….BUT…..A Teachable Moment

I gave u 5 stars because I wanted to but please give the players that start at 1:00 & beyond some reliable hope that they can finish. It’s not a big ask. The pro shop said “ no worries”.I asked the starter if we would have problem finishing- he said “ our pace is 4:15 so you will be fine. Also our ranger( he named him) is out there and he does a very good job.”
I know it was “cart path only” but take that should be taken into account in your time projections. Players feel cheated when they don’t get what they paid for thru no fault of their own. We played #17 with a minimal light & 18 in the dark as we all teed off at same time-now players drove by us heading in when we were on 17 tee….. we finished at 5:50.
Show some integrity & charge players a 9 hole rate from 1PM forward or what ever time necessary related to sunset if u can’t find a way to manage pace.Use 4:15 time for your calculations. Lord knows there is a wide array of skill out there but don’t “steal” from players that don’t deserve it. Let the players leave in the dark saying” man we got 16 holes in for 9 hole rate”…. Instead of the alternative.
By the way we never saw “THE RANGER” the entire day…you guys are better than this…..Don’t just kick the can down the road like every other course does… set yourself above the others…

Great classic course in the city

Very nice course and even better for the lower hotdeal price I got. Very nice layout, challenging at time but not overwhelming. Clubhouse was great, music which is not something I normally notice was great here and most definitely aiming for those rocking in the 70s and 80s. Free range balls, noice warm up area

Great Value, Very Fun

This course shouldn't exist in the desert but it does and it's a blast. I played one of the last days before the snowbird price hike, $69 to ride 18. This included a bag of range balls. The staff was friendly, the whole practice facility was great. Overall the course was in really good condition and the layout is challenging and fun. As all the other five star reviews illustrate, this is certainly a course worth checking out.
