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.

This course was awesome. Played on a Sunday afternoon in a twosome. Took about 3 hours to get through all 18. Course in great shape. Only a few bunkers with really hard sand other then that no complaints. Greens rolling nice and not burnt out for mid June. Fairway grass was great. Overall great shape. This is now a go to course for me.

I'm hard to impress but this time a year when nearly every course is struggling because of transition, heat, water, ect, the Raven was in what I call hard to believe shape. i couldn't find brown spots or thin spots. Tee boxes and fairways were great. The greens and around the greens were impeccable. I understand everyone is looking for the killer summer deal but spend the little extra here. The condition warrants it. This was only my 2nd time but I'll be back.

Kudos to a coarse that spends the time and effort to keep the tee boxes, fairways, and greens in great condition even during the AZ summers! We played when it was 107 degrees and were amazed at the playing conditions. This will now be our “go to” spot this summer! Staff was great also!

This course has a nice layout, and provides a good challenge. A bit longer than a lot of courses in the Valley, but not brutal. The greens were in excellent shape, and the fairways and roughs were pretty good for summer. The bunkers didn't have enough good sand, but that it typical for AZ. Overall a fine place to play.

The Raven has always been a nice course to play year around. The greens in great shape but people fix your ball marks. The only complaint is the sandtraps around the greens need more sand in them to hard . I would recommend Playing here .

This was our first time playing this course and will be back. Challenging with quick greens and slope. Expect to add a few strokes to your round but well worth it. Had breakfast after round and service was good but food very very mediocre. Would not eat there again

As a non-resident I had to pay more so be aware if visiting Phoenix. The staff was friendly and helpful. The course was in good condition except for the bunkers. They are a challenge if you are used to playing a course with good sand. It is more like a sand/dirt mix with small stones. The staff warned me a head of time. Many of the fairways are separated by small hills. I played with a member that used a yellow ball when next to the driving range. Would I play there again? Yes
