Raven Rock Golf Course
Challenging and scenic
The only problem I had was getting there. My GPS took me to the complex and told me I'd arrived, but the Pro Shop was nowhere to be seen. It's at the top of the hill.
The course is very scenic and well designed. Many holes are 'blind' from the Men's tees, but you can usually figure out where to aim.
On a few holes, you hit across a wide hazard to a small green (#10 comes to mind).
The difference between Challenging and Extremely Challenging is the fairways. Extremely challenging courses have rolling fairways - these are level.

Greens need repair
Raven Rock is a good course nestled in the hills of Eastern Kentucky. We have played this course a few time over the past few years. The fairways was in great shape but the greens were in poor condition. It made it very hard to hold the line of puts. The pin placement was very challenging which was not a bad thing.

Good place to play golf
Good place to play just seems a lil bit expensive. If they lowered the price they'd have more playing and filling the tee times. For all I know they may be filling the times. Lol. I'm just cheap and would like to play 18 holes for $15. But overall I recommend this coarse to anyone!!!!

The Course Deserves Better
Fun, challenging course with beautiful scenic views. Multiple carries and high grass on nearly every hole can make losing balls very easy if you don't find the fairway. Not much rough to speak of, and what is there is cut very short. Multiple bunkers in poor condition and they never seem to be raked. Greens are subpar. Patrons seem to rarely repair ball marks and greens are kept short and fast which I believe keeps the greens from healing properly in the summer and fall.
The main problem I have is the lack of a starter and lack of rangers. Pace of play is a huge problem on the weekends and I have had several tee times not be honored due to the staff's unwillingness to disturb the "shoot out" group which can be very frustrating. I think the manager does the best he can with the course, but being owned by a "silent partner" in Teco, really handcuffs him in what he can and can't do. The course is super fun and challenging. Would love to see some changes made, course conditions improved, and some money put into the course. 2.5 out of 5 stars for the current course, 5 out of 5 for the potiential it has.
