I have played this course multiple times. It’s a nice layout and in great condition. I’ve visited Arizona 3 to 4 times per year and I usually try to play this course at least once or twice. It’s a great getaway course that’s close to the airport for that final round that you want to get in and not feel rushed to get to the airport

Course is in very good shape for this time of year. On course staff very amenable and pleasant. Greens are average speed which is ok. Raven should improve some of the tee boxes which are crowned a bit.

Great day at Raven. Greens a bit slower than normal die to just finishing overseed. It was cart path only but that was no issue. Always great service and a great course.

A nice course but the pace was slow because there was no marshall and there was a foursome who should have been managed from the beginning. For the first nine, it took us 2 hour and half....

5700 yards on the golf is not fair for most of the women.

This was not our first time on this course and as usual it lived up to expectations. We played after overseeing and it was cart path only ... Fairways and greens were in excellent condition. Course is tight and challenging

My wife and I joined with two other for a good day at the Raven. Very unfair length for women - 5800yds. Course was in good shape after the over-seeding but a little too pricey for others of similar quality we have played in the Phoenix area.

Terrible experience! I and my golfing buddy are both handicapped with heart trouble, difficult breathing and I even have a pacemaker & defibrilater implanted. And even though the course has fully recovered from the top dressing, we were not allowed a handicapped flag - not even a 90 degree rule. We couldn't finish the round and had to quit after 9 holes. Ended up not buying shirts or caps to remember our trip. The Pro blamed the situation on the greens keeper!

Just moved to Chandler from Seattle and heard a lot of great things about the Raven.

I received an email from Golf Now about the Raven and decided to give it a go, with a friend mine, who lives in Glendale.

We were blown away by how well the course looked after overseeding just a few weeks ago.

We felt like we were at Agusta :)

Great Course and Staff.

Can't wait to get back out to the Raven.

Enjoyed our round at the Raven even though play was slow and the course was preparing for winter over seed. The course has a nice layout and has a number of holes that give you a risk reward choice of laying up or going for it. Missing in the wrong place can add more than a couple of strokes on some holes. Very enjoyable overall. Not a desert course, more like a course you would play in the Midwest with pine trees instead of palm trees.
