Raven Golf Club
Raven Golf Club overview
Sitting on a mountain slope on the edge of the South Mountain Park and Preserve, just 20 minutes south of downtown Scottsdale is Raven Golf Club. A spectacular clubhouse awaits with views across the golf course and surrounding valley, plus the amenities are excellent. Grill 36 is a full-service restaurant open throughout the day, the pro shop has everything you will need, and the practice facilities include a double-sided range, putting green and short-game area.
Just 7 miles from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport, Raven Golf Club is a great option on the day of arrival or day of departure.
Raven Golf Club course overview
The course at Raven Golf Club was designed by Gary Panks and David Graham. Using the natural landscape, the course encounters subtle elevation changes and rolling fairways that are framed by mature pines – not the norm for golf in the desert! Large sand and grass bunkers play their part and the numerous multi-tiered greens make putting a challenge.
With a selection of teeing options, it is playable for all and the strategic design offers a test for all levels of golfer. Mountain views feature on nearly every hole, making it a very enjoyable course to play. Although Raven Golf Club hasn’t yet seen a professional PGA TOUR event, it remains a staple of collegiate golf tournaments.
Two to look out for at Raven Golf Club are the 7th and 18th. The par-3 7th is a long ‘short’ hole at over 200-yards from the back tees with water and sand to be carried to reach the putting surface, and the 18th, a pine tree-lined par-4 with a striking water feature guarding the green.
