Since 1995, Raven Golf Club - Phoenix has been a favorite of locals and visitors alike, set amidst 6,000 Georgia pines with stunning panoramas and in excellent condition. Derek Crawford’s staff is superb from the curb greeting to their thankful bid farewell. Music on the practice range, vibrant floral details and striking water features lull the golfer while the course layout challenges with diverse topography.
Hole #8, par 4, 421 yards – The dogleg right may require an accurate fairway wood to avoid the slippery slope ending to a lake grave. On approach, be mindful of pin placement for any chance of success as the green rolls slightly downhill toward water.
Hole #18, par 4, 428 yards – This beautiful finishing hole with the South Mountain backdrop provides the final course challenge. While a drive to the left side appears optimal, beware of the large crater bunkering along that side of the fairway. A drive too far right may confront the lake. A test of accuracy and nerves, a safe drive is, let’s say center left? The green is dangerously located next to a water feature that hugs the right side. A par is king.
