Located on the northern bank of the North Saskatchewan River, Raven Crest Golf & Country Club sprawls across a beautiful landscape that offers stunning views. Raven Crest is part of the group of four Country Club Tour Courses. Membership with Country Club Tour provides access to all four of these Edmonton-area golf courses. Raven Crest features a diverse mix of holes, ranging from narrow and tree-lined to open, links-style holes. The golf course stretches to just over 6,700 yards from the back tees, winding through mature forests and wetlands. Towering trees line the fairways and water comes into play several times. To complement the natural hazards, there are also strategically placed bunkers throughout. In addition to the golf course, Raven Crest has practice facilities that include a practice green, short game area, and full driving range.

Unprofessional, Poor Pace, and Overpriced.

Monday night we went to play around 6:30. While I can be sympathetic towards Covid and group/league play that can negatively impact pace, the pace of play was simply unacceptable. It was apparent from the parking lot all the way up to the tee box that it was going to be a slow round. We did not tee off on time. We waited for over 10 mins on the second hole. We waited another 20 on the 3rd. On the fourth hole there were 3 groups at the tee box including us when we pulled up. The marshalls were nowhere to be found. We were not informed of a 20 person league/group, nor were we allowed to tee off on the back 9 to offset the obvious backlog. We were on pace for nearly a 4 hour 9 holes.

I messaged the course, hoping that they would own up to this and make the appropriate adjustments in the future in order to avoid incidents such as this. They declined to respond, and as a result I will never go back to Ravencrest. If I’m going to make that drive I’m going to Quarry every single time, and why not? CCT is a price gouge for what you get in the first place. It will be disappointing to have to cut White Tail from my circuit, but I refuse to support a company that thinks they are above customer service.

Will Definitely Be Back

A busy day at the course, but was able to finish our round within the allotted time. Raven Crest is part of the Country Club Tour and our annual membership makes it really worthwhile. On the whole, the course is well maintained and amenities include new electric golf carts. The Starter and Pro Shop staff were friendly. The beverage cart staff came around frequently. We did not have time to check out the food in the clubhouse, but our round included a discount voucher for burgers. It was a very enjoyable day.

Friendly staff; friendly course

The course was in very good condition. This course offers birdie opportunities but also demands that you think your way around the course.
I will be back.

Course was in shut down mode for end of season

Ball washers were missing, club house kitchen was closed, and greens were dressed with sand which made putting difficult

the course is fine, but the greens are sanded for the winter, so the putting was disappointing. still a goot time was had by our party.

you can't complain about playing a round at this time of the year. even with the greens sanded, we still enjoyed our round.

I really like this course, it has a lot of variety in the 18 holes.

It is a great course under normal circumstances, however the course had just been aerated & the greens were sanded, making it very difficult to putt & got very little roll on the fairways.

Rough Way Too Long

Rough Way Too Long, Both of are carts Had to be replaced med round because battery's were dead. Strong smell of Garbage from nearby dump. But the course has matured nicely over the years. A good challenge especially with the long rough.

Lovely afternnoon

This course is a little gem. Well maintained, interesting variety of terrain and holes. Always fun to play. The course marshal was very friendly but kept things moving along. He was teaching a group of youngsters about course etiquette and speed of play which was wonderful to see - some adults could take note!

Beautiful course with many practice areas

Enjoyed Raven Crest in August 2013. The staff was nice when checking in with my golfnow discount. Not all staff at courses welcome the golfnow discounts as it hurts them in double bookings sometimes. Not here though, very understanding. The course was tremendous. Well kept. And will be back, that's for darn sure.

Good Value

Raven Crest is a course that offers good value in a market where golf has a very short season.
There are 2 or 3 holes with narrow fairways, but overall, it is a very fair and wide open golf course.
Golf Now price was very good!

Very Nice Layout

This is a great course to play. It has many difficult holes for an average golfer and undulating fairways and greens. The course is in pristine conditions when we play. This course is highly recommended for any golfer.
