Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Arizona
Course was very nice and well kept I would highly recommend. This course to everyone!
Ball mark itis, lazy golfers
Putting on the greens is horrendous, golfers are not repairing their balll marks on the greens and I'm talking very many 40+ each green, paying this greens fee is not worth this amount. Fairways are nice, hired help is there to collect their tips, just a bad experience for the first time. Not worth the drive.
Will not return
It’s a nice track. But
Course was in good condition. Cannot highly recommend the course as the traps are in terrible condition. Weeds growing in them. Very little actual sand, mostly rocks and dirt. The price is a little high based upon the sand condition
Mice course, a little over priced
Course is nice, staff is friendly, but in my opinion it’s overpriced. I paid $185 for the round, $6-$7 for beers and $10 for a hotdog. That’s right- a $10 hotdog...
There are other courses that would be better bang for your buck. You won’t be disappointed if you play here as long as you are okay with spending $$$. Also took 5 1/2 hours but that’s what you can expect when you play public courses. Thought the $185 price tag would eliminate that.
Awful sand traps.
Traps are beyond horrible condition. They are just dirt. At this price point they should be way better. Course is terrrific but won’t come back until I know traps are fixed.
Played this course twice in a 5-week period, both days before heading to PHX, to which The Raven is very close (15 minutes). Course was in great shape. Played with two local guys, who were super nice and made use feel welcome. I definitely recommend The Raven.
Course was in great shape!
We always enjoy playing the Raven Golf Colurse. Very challenging and in good shape. the staff were all very friendly and helpful.
Really fun round of golf!
This is our last round this trip to Arizona, and it was a good one.
The course was in really good shape. We were a twosome with a full course ahead of us, but we still managed to complete the round in about 4.5 hours. And everyone that we interacted with were friendly.
The course itself is fairly straight forward. It is easy to see where you are supposed to hit the ball. And the sides of most fairways are mounded to help funnel the ball toward the middle.
But there are enough challenges to make the course fun. There are well placed bunkers. There is water. There are plants, trees and dirt between holes. And there are undulations especially near the greens.
The greens were decent. The ball rolled well even though the grass is a bit thin and there are repairs that have not completely healed.
Overall - worth a visit.
Has not been on my radar but was very pleasantly surprised what a great golf course this is. Not a desert course full of a bunch of forced carries but a great layout. Very visually attractive and challenging course with ba great variety of holes. Everything you want. Short and long par 3, 4,5s. Well placed bunkers and water hazards. My opinion one of the best in the Valley. Will play again.
Great value for money
The course was an excellent condition and is a very good layout. Relative to other courses in the area it was a good deal. Turkey wrap I had after 9 holes was terrible and service team were pretty friendly but not the best.
Beautiful course but awful bunkers.
Course was really beautiful, was cart path only which wasn’t necessary. We had the cart keys only when we begin the game like we were babies. The bunkers were really awful, surprising for such a beautiful course.
Challenging but fair.
Very well maintained course, challenging but fair. I would definitely play again. Employees are all nice and professional. Ranger Doug C. was especially helpful and interesting to talk to, we really appreciated his help.
Nice golf experience even with overseeding
There are of course hundreds of choices in the Phoenix area. The Raven is a long established course with a fair layout and relatively easy. If you want a course that is ultra challenging and has lots of intricate features this is not for you. However, if you want a nice conditions and playing from the fairway and giving you a chance at par, this is a good choice. Keep in mind every course in the area overseeds in late August and it is car path only until the new grass matures enough. That slows the pace of play considerably. Plus the greens will be a little slow and choppy until everything fills in late in November.
Overall The Raven is a good course, not in the upper tier but also not in the upper price range.
The staff at The Raven was excellent. GolfNow failed to contact them or secure our tee time once it was booked so we arrived at the course and were told that we didn't have a tee time. The staff then called GolfNow and gave them our confirmation number and asked why they had failed to secure our tee time once it was confirmed. GolfNow said it was a failure on their part and asked if they had any other times for us. This was a very busy Sunday morning and the tee sheet was full. The staff went out of their way to fit us into their tee sheet and we actually got out a little earlier than our original time. They very easily could of sent us away with an apology much like GolfNow did but they didn't. Great staff and customer service. The course was in great shape and it was a great morning round of golf. Thanks guys.
