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.

Way too slow

We totally understand when the weather is nice a 4.5-5 hour round on a Saturday can be expected. Today it was over 110 and the course moved so slow. No Marshall's were seen all day to keep the pace of play moving. The front nine took a little over 2 hours, but the back was super slow. Waits of 15-20 minutes on almost all shots. Sometimes more. We played 8 holes on the back in about 2hrs and 30 minutes. Gave up after 17. Terrible pace of play for this time of year. Not sure we will return. Course was in decent shape for this time of year and the staff was great. Cart girl even mentioned that someone should be moving the slow groups along.

Raven Soars Over Competition

My first visit to this course...certainly not my last. The layout is fun, fair and challenging. Do not pass on playing this course. The conditions were far superior to other courses is the valley. This has been a difficult year for summer transition and the Raven greenskeepers have figured out a solution.

Greens had just been punched

I thought that may have been the case with the $25 Saturday morning starting time. Sure enough, punched on Wednesday. Still a great experience with my son though.

I think one of the best courses in the valley

When you consider that this course is just a few minutes south of downtown, this course is amazing. We played on a Friday afternoon and, although it was hot, had a great round. Tee boxes and fairways were in great shape. They had just aerated the greens, but they put a layer of sand on to help keep ball true. Just had to hit it a little harder than usual. Pace of play was great.

Desert greens

I like this course and I understand aerating the course and greens but there is no reason to send people out when you can't even see grass on the greens. Played the back 9 twice and 0 point to hitting putts, nice course when it's nice but yeah waste of money to play a course you can't putt on.
