Simply put, The Raven at Verrado Golf Club Golf Club is Grayhawk on steroids without the clubhouse. The Raven offers a spectacular course layout and great Sonoran desert terrain. The course is always in immaculate condition and clubhouse is awesome. If not for the proximity to Scottsdale and Phoenix hotels and other courses, The Raven at Verrado Golf Club would definitely be higher on this list. If 1+ hour drives don’t bother you , then The Raven at Verrado is a must play!
