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.

Does ANYONE here know how to fix a divot?

Greens are terrible. Dozens of divots and it doesn't matter which green. Pick one

Challenging and scenic

The only problem I had was getting there. My GPS took me to the complex and told me I'd arrived, but the Pro Shop was nowhere to be seen. It's at the top of the hill. The course is very scenic and well designed. Many holes are 'blind' from the Men's tees, but you can usually figure out where to aim. On a few holes, you hit across a wide hazard to a small green (#10 comes to mind). The difference between Challenging and Extremely Challenging is the fairways. Extremely challenging courses have rolling fairways - these are level.

Greens need repair

Raven Rock is a good course nestled in the hills of Eastern Kentucky. We have played this course a few time over the past few years. The fairways was in great shape but the greens were in poor condition. It made it very hard to hold the line of puts. The pin placement was very challenging which was not a bad thing.
