I played around of golf and here and the it was a great experience. First, Jeff at the club house was a class act. He went over and beyond to tell us about what was happening in the surrounding area. The golf play was a little crowded considering a group of 20 went out before us. The course is beautiful... More

I was visiting Florida from my home in Northern Virginia. It was recommended to me to play this raven course. I'm sure glad I did. I've played a lot of golf in my time and I can firmly say that almost every one of the holes of this course could qualify as being the signature hole of the course. Just... More

To start off, this is one of the prettiest golf courses I have ever played. We played in late June and the conditions were great. From the moment you drop your bag at the curb, the staff is friendly and welcoming. There seems to be water on just about every hole. Most of it doesn't come into play, as my... More

Was here with my dad while on vacation. The course was in great shape and the attendants were very helpful. It's definitely a challenge to play IF you've never played before, but for me and my father it was somewhat easy. Defiantly recommend getting a early tee time, if it's a holiday weekend or the summertime then your probably gonna... More

I played the Raven on a recent trip to Sandestin. The course was in fantastic shape! Very fair but a good test of golf. The greens were in excellent shape. Lots of water! Shot making at a premium.

We played the course as part of a family trip. There were 10 golfers with a fairly big age range and different abilities. It is a challenging but fair course. Everyone had fun. The course was in great shape. The staff was very friendly. We will be back for sure.

We play Baytowne and the Links as well as the Raven. Liked the Raven the best but bone up on your sand play. We like the other courses, too, but the Raven really stands out. The staff is exceptional.

Fun course that will challenge you. #2 Sandestin course IMO behind Burnt Pine. Unlike Burnt Pine, you do not have to be staying as a guest at the Sandestin resort to play the Raven. Same is true for the Baytowne course and the Links course on the property, i.e. open to the public.

Burnt Pine is the better round hole-for-hole, but Raven isn't far behind. Those two are the more remote, more adventurous rounds of the four on property, and the two I'd play for sure the next time I'm in the Destin area (with Camp Creek). Scale of 1-10, Raven is a solid 8. Burnt Pine an emphatic 9. Well worth it.
