Raven Golf Club - Phoenix features a one-of-a-kind round of desert golf. Its fairways are lined with Georgia pine, and its greens have more tiers than one - the kind of golf course that only Gary Panks and David Graham could imagine, and a can't-miss on your next golf trip to Phoenix. Over the ages, the golf club has garnered all sorts of recognition.

The layout features plush, rolling fairways framed by thousands of mature trees, as well as vistas of rugged desert mountains and the Phoenix skyline. The golf course's flexible, strategic design offers a challenge for all players, and the variety it presents will give you the opportunity to use nearly every club in your bag.

That said, the Raven Golf Club - Phoenix might be the perfect place to turn a business trip to Phoenix into a golf trip to Phoenix - it's handy to Sky Harbor Airport and downtown Phoenix.

Not worth it

Course was in awful shape. Would have been nice to know they were reseeding. Course is literally all dead, except for the greens. Cart staff was not friendly, overall so not worth it.

Slow Pace

Overall, amazing course. Amazing service. However we had 4 some in front us that extremely slow, and they never let us play through, we were a 2 some. Had to wait on the tee box quite a bit. Just need to regulate that a little bit better but overall, definitely would play this course again. Best conditioned course in AZ I’ve played so far!

Raven

This is a resort course and is well maintained. The price is rising as winter approaches . The course itself is well maintained and presents unique challenges.

Slow Pace

Stuck behind a group lining up and waking out their 2 footers for double. Marshall blamed the groups a few spots up, but did nothing to move the pace forward. We waiting on every hole and finished close to 4h40m. There are other better options for then money.

Nice course

Play here every couple months, course is really nice and pace is usually good. Definitely worth the money for the challenge. Was the first group out and finished in just over 3 hours. The guys in the pro shop have no customer service skills whatsoever over the phone or in person but the the cart girl, guys cleaning clubs, and guys working the range were all nice.

Mosquito Infestation

Our group has played this course often, but the last two time we encountered a mosquito infestation. Today we quit after 5 holes, the mosquito's were so bad. The course needs to fog the course to get rid of the problem. We have never experienced mosquito's on any Phoenix course before this.

Summer round

summer morning round. Early tee time and the range was closed. Not sure why, so we weren't able to warm up. Course is usually a great place to play.

Course was in great condition except some of the traps are pretty thin. Fairways, greens and Tee boxes are in excellent condition.
