Sandestin, FL 32550-7268, United States

Raven Golf Club was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and opened for play in March 2000. The course plays through the wetlands of the Sandestin Resort, and is noted for dramatic water features, challenging bunkering, and pine-lined fairways.

Raven has an alternate 16th hole; our scorecards include a version using the 16B hole.

I was able to play a couple of Sandestin's golf courses while on vacation recently. The greens at both The Raven & Baytowne were both punched a couple of weeks earlier. The staff made this known before paying and playing. Other than the greens being in below average condition due to the aeration, the course was in very nice condition...fairways and bunkers were in excellent condition while the tee boxes were in just average shape. The entire staff was very friendly...everyone from the bag guy to the pro shop staff to the starter. As it was 95* at 2 pm when I teed it up, the course was empty and I was able to play 18 in less than 3 hours. My only real complaint is that for the money charged to play, it would be nice to have GPS on the carts. There are adequate yardage markers in the fairway and thankfully, I did remember to bring my range finder which made a difference on a couple of holes when it came time to carrying water hazards. As I failed to remember to bring my SkyCaddie, I would highly recommend purchasing a course yardage book showing the fairway layout and yardages. As this was the first time playing The Raven, my lack knowledge of the course cost me 2-3 penalty strokes this round. Overall, I would recommend playing this course if you are in the area.

This is the 2nd time my husband & I have played this course. I would definitely recommend this course to my friends and do plan to revisit in the future.

They aerated 2 weeks before, but they were in good shape. Not perfect but better than most courses and not as good as a nice course with greens in good shape. Course was beautiful and wouldn't be that hard if you were familiar with it. But because I'm not, it cost me about 5 penalties.

Aerated greens the day before we played and they still charged us $90 on a 100 degree Monday. Honestly a forgettable track surrounded by better options. Play Camp Creek or Sharks Tooth if you have the options.
