Incredibly disappointed

Thank God I got a Hot Deal on this one. My buddy that joined me had to pay $50 to get on with me today. Hard pan fairways, bunkers were like cement, and the greens are in atrocious shape. You’re better off burning your money before you try this place.

Not worth the price now...

This was a fine $20-$25 course, but after the recent price increase, I will just drive to Stonecrest. Drop the price and I'll be back.

Target golf!

This was my first time playing Raven Rock and I was pleasantly surprised . This course has been placed on an unclaimed strip mine. The best way to describe this course is target golf! If you can hit the fairways, you will have a great day. The second cut rough is deep. The tee boxes are fun as the tee marker are paineted pieces of coal. The only negative are the greens. Lots of fungus and dark spots make the greens roll very slow. Nonetheless, I would play again! Very fun! The best part is the staff. A gentleman came out to tell us to have a great round and everyone in the clubhouse were very friendly. One thing to note- No driving range.

raven rock

Course was wet from the recent rains and probably should have been cart path only. Some of the greens have been treated for a fungal infection and are recovering but still in pretty good shape.

The only concern about this course is that having a marshal for keeping people from starting on the back nine or playing with groups more than four would be nice. Both can be a little frustrating

Overall, a good day.

Target golf at its best

Raven Rock is a relative short course that demands accurate shots, there is not much room for error. Most of the time you are in the fairway or you have a lost ball. Its fun to play. There are several upgrades happening such as a new restaurant coming, the sand bunkers are getting much needed attention, and probably within the next month, the course will be in great condition. The greens were very slow but we have had rain, however they were slow before the rain. Once the greens are in shape, the course in a good test for your golf game.

Great mountain course.

Eastern KY doesn't have a lot of golf courses but this is one of the best.

Course has beautiful vistas and was in good shape. Would highly recommend it if in the area.

Only issue was that we had a 7:00 am tee time but no one was there to open the course until almost 730. We were still second off, because we let a twosome go in front, and round was very quick.

Frist time player at Raven Rock

Over all the course is very difficult more so on the back nine than the front. Very few yardage marker and a lot of blind shots. They just aerated the green and I'll said not more on that. Would loved to play it when the green were normal. No water on the course.
