Raven's Claw Golf Club
THE GOOD, THE BAD, & THE HORRID
THIS COURSE IS WELL LAID OUT, TAKING VERY GOOD ADVANTAGE OF LIMITED TERRAIN FEATURES.THE FAIRWAYS, GREENS,& TEE-BOXES WERE ALL IN EXCELLANT CONDITION (EXCEPT FOR DRAINAGE).VERY PLEASING TO THE EYE. ALSO, THE STAFF WAS VERY FRIENDLY & HELPFUL.
AND NOW FOR THE BAD; WE PLAYED 2 DAYS AFTER A RAINY PERIOD, THUS CART-PATHS ONLY. THE FAIRWAYS,ROUGH, & GREEN FRONTS WERE SO SOGGY WE WALKED RIGHT PAST MANY OF OUR PLUGGED SHOTS.OF COURSE THIS HELPED FILL IN THE WAIT TIME BETWEEN SHOTS. ALL IN ALL WE WERE ABLE TO GET IN 14 HOLES IN 4HOURS &10 MINUTES.
AND NOW THE TERRIBLE; THE UNPAVED CART-PATHS WERE A CONTINOUS STRING OF CRATERS & RAVINES ALL FILLED WITH RAIN WATER.,MOST OF WHICH YOU COULD NOT BE DODGED.
YES I WILL PLAY AGAIN, BUT CERTAINLY DURING A DRY SPELL & WILL AVOID THE CART-PATHS (EXCEPT AROUND THE TEE-BOXES & GREENS).
ONE OTHER THING GPS IS A MUST, NO DISTANCE MARKERS ANYWHERE BUT ON THE TEES.

Great Bang For Your Buck
Had always heard about Raven's Claw but never got around to playing it. I came across a hot deal the other day and had to take it. What a treat! This course is in great condition. 99% of the leaves have been blown off the course and greens. Fairways, greens and bunkers were in great shape. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. My only gripe is that you don't get a chance to stop at the clubhouse between the 9th and 10th holes. If you need food or drinks either bring them with you or buy them at the clubhouse before you tee off. Also, I didn't try the food or bar, so I can't give a fair rating on that.
Great Course. Definitely give it a try.

Nice course, good condition
Course was in very good condition, had heavy rain prior day, cart path only. Gusty winds made curse play longer than usual this day. Greens rolled nice and held iron shots as expected. Cart paths were not paved and terrible with ruts and holes filled with water.
Bunkers were unmaintained, solid hard sand or mud, maybe from previous rain. Would not pay full price to golf here, worth golfing with golf not hot deals once a year.

Great course, needing some care
Most of the holes are challenging and fun to play. Course has not been very well maintained otherwise it will be much more desirable

Its a overall great place. The proximity of the houses and noise from residents can be a little annoying but its a great course

My wife and I have played 92 different courses in the past three years, and Raven's Claw is in the top ten on our list. We were lucky that on a spectacular Sunday afternoon, we still finished our round in under 4 hours. We drove 90 minutes to get to the course, and we will definitely do it again.
The course was in excellent condition and each hole presented very different shot choices and challenges. It is a course where "good thought" is as important as :good shot".

Great course, friendly staff
We have been wanting to play Raven's Claw all summer. When we saw a tee time with an exceptional price that meet our needs, we jumped. It was challenging for both an intermediate golfer as well as a beginner. We are definitely going back!
