The Raven at Verrado Golf Course is a layout that’s garnered more than its fair share of accolades from both local and national golf writers and players Located west of Phoenix at the foot of the White Tank Mountains, the Raven at Verrado Golf Course offers a unique golf experience with spectacular views and unexpected elevation changes. Wide open fairways and often tight approaches, lead to large, undulating and sometimes tough to read greens that range in speed from slow to super-fast. This is a layout that provides the opportunity to play a variety of approach shots.
Set among the foothills of the White Tank Mountains in Buckeye, Arizona, the Raven plays more than 7,000 yards from the tips. The golf course is challenging enough, but when you're confronted with the "jaw dropping views and rugged natural beauty," you understand why the Verrado Golf Club offers such an exceptional West Phoenix Valley golf experience. And it's tough, but play withing your abilities, choose the right tee boxes, and you can count on an extraordinary golfing experience. After when the last putt has been sunk, you'll find that the Verrado Grille restaurant is a great place to relax and take in the Sunset!
For sure, this facility offers one of the best values in golf anywhere in Arizona. You can enjoy true "member for the day" status with: unlimited golf, unlimited use of the practice facility, one full meal (breakfast, lunch, or dinner, ordered from Cocina Grille), along with on-course snacks and non-alcoholic beverages. I have never run across anything quite like anywhere else.
The 18-hole Raven at Verrado Golf Course plays an intimidating 7,258 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. The course rating is 73.8 and it has a slope rating of 132. Designed by John Fought, the Raven golf course opened in 2004.
