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.

excellent conditions

upon arrival was promptly greeted and set up by staff. as the other players did not show , the starter cobbled together a foursome from several tee times. course conditions were lush with no poor lies on fairway, rough or greens. tees just ok. some bunkers had drainage issues.an enjoyable round on a well maintained course.

Nice course, great staff.

I had a lovely outing. Particularly the pace of play was terrific for a Saturday. We saw the marshal on multiple occasions and it was obvious he was doing his job. Greens were minimally tattered with the winter season winding down. Fairways wide and in reasonably good shape. There is plenty of sand in the bunkers as I found out several times. Very playable course — fun for a high handicapper like me. Staff was terrific. I’ll be back.

Great setting

The staff were very friendly, the course was in excellent shape, great for the average golfers and very enjoyable to play.Would highly recommend it to anyone. They could use a shorter ladies tee.

Enjoy this course

Over the years we occasionally play the Raven. Each time we've found it to be a beautiful and challenging course. The course staff was friendly. It doesn't feel like an Arizona course because of the many pine trees, but that doesn't matter much to us.

First Class Day

Excellent course in great condition. There had been a frost delay and the staff was working hard to get everyone caught up. Play was 1hour behind We arrived early for tee time and they got us out earlier than our tee time. Waited on almost every hole , but not too long. Considering they give you a $50. pro shop credit to spend and $20. in the restaurant it was a good value.

Black Spots

I'll start taking pictures from now on.
The greens rolled OK but there are hundreds of black spots on the green that resemble unrepaired ball marks but just too numerous to be ballmarks.
So no tsure what the issue with those marks may be.
Great layout and scenery and one of the best courses in the valley.

Great Golfing Facility

Super golfing facility.
Check-in and starters were great.
Beautiful grass range and large putting green.
Tee to green, course was in fantastic condition.
Greens were very quick and rolled true.
No problem with pace as we were 1st group out but saw a ranger 4 times throughout round.
Some great golf holes. Undoubtably best course I played of 4 during the week.
Without hesitation.... would play here again when in the area.
