Rated 4 out of 5 by bsreyns Raven's Claw takes a bite!
We had a great round at Raven's. Weather was overcast and upper fifty's, but for a Nov weekend, perfect for a Fall round. Staff was friendly, starter got us out early, pace was great, our 3-some got thru in under <4 hrs, Greens were damp, but still really fast. Front 9 really fun, just a warm-up though for the tougher back nine. Everyone in our group finished happy, what's not to like. We were visiting family in Pottstown, so will definitely consider Raven's again next time we are in town. Thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by u000007429294 Nice track in good condition
I have played Ravens Claw before in my golf league and remembered that I liked the layout. I saw a 20 dollar fall hot deal on Golf Now and took advantage. The regular rates even into November were running around $50 bucks, so the value.to me is a bit questionable, but the course is in excellent shape and the staff is friendly. This course is typically very busy and pace of play can be quite slow. I booked as a single and got grouped up with 3 others. Good news was the starter was able to get my out earlier than my tee time which I appreciated. The greens rolled nice, and there were some challenging pin placements. I found a few bunkers and the sand was perfect, not too deep or soft and also not too hard. They played very honest all things considered. Overall I still like this course, its convenient to the local Philly market and definitely one of the better kept public courses in the area, with a nice layout to offer. Just be warned that due to this courses popularity, pace of play and tee time options can be a factor even late into the year.

Great course for a great price! Conditions were very playable after a lot of rain the day before.

Rated 4 out of 5 by grom1711 Surprising conditions
Played after heavy rain all previous day. Was wet in spots on fairways and rough, but no real standing water. Greens held up well for this time of year. We played as a two some and only waited on 2 holes all day. Moved nicely. Nice course layout except for 9th hole which is way too gimmicky for my taste. Otherwise a great deal for the golfnow price we paid. I play here 4-5 times per season and will be back

Rated 5 out of 5 by RBurghardt Tough but fair course....excellent condition!
Raven's Claw has some very difficult holes, especially from the tips....9, 10 and 11 are the toughest stretch of three holes I know of in the area.
Tee boxes were aerated, but that's not a big deal. Rest of the course was in excellent shape, especially for late October.
Staff is always friendly and accommodating. Would definitely recommend to anyone who likes a bit of a challenge.

Today was probably at least the 7th time I've played this course this season. I love the track, certain weird holes that people may not like I actually love because they are unique. The course was in questionable condition towards the end of the summer but its getting back to business as usual. Only problem is with the lack of care the Golfers have in doing their part to keep the greens in top shape, fix your ball marks. Side note: pin placements were treacherous today, made for an interesting round putting wise. I'll continue to play here frequently even though the end of the summer conditions were alittle rough around the edges

Rated 2 out of 5 by Martin1452548 Really disappointing
Five hour + round. Ranger said he had only been there a month and did not know what to do. At one point, there were for foursomes on a par four. Brutal.
Beverage lady came by once all day. Said she 'loved' her job but only had two cold hot dogs and some chips to eat. How about just a little effort?
I would never pay here again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Adam8224183 Still one of my favorites for the price
Played this course after three days of rain, so expectedly it was pretty soggy. The greens were soft but still rolling nice. Was surprised they were allowing carts on the fairways, but they didn't looked overly beat up. Overall, course was in great shape. This course has a few 'quirky' holes that will not appeal to everyone, but I enjoy the layout and multiple holes that make you think off the tee. Pace of play was not an issue as the day started gloomy which probably deterred some golfers away. I'll be back for more.
