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.

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

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, 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.

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!

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.

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

The course is really nice. But the staff (at least some) where quite rude and unfriendly. They insisted on finishing at the time of sunset although it was a beautiful day and you could easily have played for another 30min. So we missed 3 holes.<br/> Also, they told us that the second 9 where not accessible for carts. Obviously that slowed us down. And we were quite surprised to see cart sign all over. We just had the feeling they wanted us to get off the course as soon as possible so they can call it a day. And the lack of carts felt like a trick to make us not play on after 9.
