The Raven Golf Club at Three Peaks is touted as the best mountain golf course in Colorado and even one of the best courses in the country. Towering forests of pine and aspen frame the rolling fairways and manicured greens on this scenic layout. The crystal clear creeks and trout-filled lakes are a striking contrast to the lush green of the course and the snow-capped peaks in the distance. The golf course is known for more than its scenery though, its challenging design is a test for all skill levels. The steep-faced bunkers have deeply furrowed edges, which can be tricky but they also serve to contain tee shots that might have an increased carry because of the course's dramatic elevations. There are also water hazards to contend with on several holes.

The Raven keeps getting better

Played this course many times. The new bunkers are simply awesome and the fairways were hard and fast. The greens have recovered from ice damage a few years ago and are coming together nicely with decent green speeds for a Mnt track. The staff is super friendly and attentive. The only issues are that pace of play can be very slow on the front nine due to difficulty on some of the holes. And the flex pricing has the standard rate approaching $230 for peak times. I almost always book a the Raven through Golf Now Hot Deals.

Raven Experience Like pulling teeth.

Took almost 3hours to play front 9. No effort to speed up,play. Back side looked better coursewise, , although we only played 4 holes and finally gave up after 4 1/2 hours standing 5 minutes or more over every shot.. very disappointing.

Nice views

Course was very nice and in a convenient location.. The person in the pro shop was extremely rude! My wife wanted to ride with me and I was told the day before that there wouldn’t be a fee. We didn’t have a problem with paying a rider fee, but $55 was ridiculous on top of the golf fee. So instead of reducing the fee I was in a cart by myself. That makes no sense. His rudeness was just totally unnecessary and caused me to not purchase a thing there. No shirt, no food not even a water.

Beautiful course, but overpriced

Raven Club at Three Peaks is one of the most beautiful golf courses I have ever played. With that said, the pricing in the $200-$240 range is double what this course should be charging given the conditions. I found many of the tee boxes to be chipped up. The greens were ok but inconsistent in speed and condition depending on the hole. The fairways were in excellent shape, but after the first cut of rough it became very patchy. My other complaint is the overall pace of play and seeming inability of the ranger to keep play moving along, leading to a five-hour round. There are other courses in the region in much better condition that charge significantly less. I'm glad I played but won't be back until the greens fees better match the conditions of the course. I can play TPC courses for less money.

Updated Course

The course shows the positive results of all the work done over the last two years. Still a drainage issue on #7 after heavy rains. Most of the greens have recovered after the spring damage from a few years ago. All the sand traps have been redone and are in great shape. Outstanding views of the Blue River valley. Don’t be surprised if a moose, elk or mule deer wanders by or watches you hit your shot.

This is a must play

I have written a longer review on Google reviews but for this site I will be a bit more concise. The pro shop, staff and head pro were all top notch and very accommodating. (Saw the beverage cart three times!)

The golf experience was one of the best I have had this season. This course was in great condition The greens and bunkers (yes I hit bunkers) were fair and true. The sand was especially impressive. I would say this mountain course is one of the best maintained I have seen Iin years. The course is challenging for low and high handicappers, perhaps the 0-5ers might find it a bit short, but that’s not a problem for me

As for value and would I play it again…the walk up rate is on the upper end but not out of range for quality mountain golf courses. And you can occasionally Get some good online rates. Would I play it again and recommend to fellow golfers….Absolutely!!!! Give it a round and I bet your will want to play it again!!! Thank You The Raven at Three Peaks, you gave me a great golf round and memory

Terrible

Terrible experience. Tried cancelling a couple of times either no answer from Raven nor Golfnow. They charged the complete foursome and had zero flexibility for refunds. Beware of golfnow

New Sand Traps

The greens and fairways are in much better shape than the last two seasons. Most of the traps have been redone and are in great shape. Very striking with the white sand. Still working on a few more.
