Played Raven with my son-in-law while on a family vacation in Sandestin. Great course. Well maintained with the fairways and greens being in great condition. We played in the early afternoon and had the course all to ourselves. Had a lot of fun on some challenging holes and enjoyed the round even if it was a little hot. Would definitely return and play if in the area again.

This is one of the best courses in the Destin area. Staff is very helpful. The course is beautiful and a decent challenge. The greens were recouping from recent aeration but still rolled pretty good. I'll play this course again.
