Located just west of Denver, Raven Golf Club at Three Peaks weaves through towering pines, lush groves of aspen, grassy wetlands, and trout-filled lakes. Situated at an elevation of over 9,000 feet, the golf course offers stunning views of Buffalo Mountain and the "Three Peaks" for which it is named. The layout is an interesting combination of traditional elements with a contemporary design. The bunkers have steep faces and deep-furrowed edges that provide a unique challenge and they also help to contain tee shots that can have an increased carry due to the golf course's dramatic elevations. The rolling fairways are bordered with trees and water hazards come into play on a few holes as well. Raven Golf Club at Three Peaks has received several accolades from publications including Golf Digest and Golf Magazine and it is considered by locals to be one of the best golf courses in Colorado.

    My group of mostly out-of-state Colorado Golf Binge players thoroughly enjoyed playing here again last August. Our weather was great and the course was in fine shape.

    The fairways were lush and the greens were fast and true. Hole #7 continues to be a challenge for drainage but almost all other problem areas seem to be largely corrected with updates on their irrigation systems. The Raven's biggest challenge seems to be keeping the cart paths from sliding down the mountainsides....a problem common to Summit County including I-70.

    The unique features of The Raven are generally wide and lush fairways, large and fine greens that are very challenging to read and great elevation changes.

    Bring your camera for great Rocky Mountain scenery combined with a fair amount of local wildlife including fox, deer, an occasional moose and ospreys that for years have had their huge nest on a post overlooking the 3rd fairway. You may see an osprey snatch a large trout from ponds of The Raven or the neighboring ponds and fly it back to its tall nest on the pole.

    The Raven staff will welcome you to a great day of golf and send you off on what begins as a rather tame front nine. But as you climb from the Blue River valley uphill to the par 3 8th hole (appropriately named Buena Vista) you'll be ready for 2 very exciting downhillers. The 8th hole measures 184 yds from the Raven (tips) tees and 134 yds from the forward tees. A flatlander with a good game should probably hit about 2 clubs less than he'd hit this distance at low altitude due to the approximate 150 ft. drop from tee to green and the thin, light air at almost 9,000' above sea level. Of course this depends on the wind that day. Just don't miss left or long!

    Then #9 is a breathtaking par 4 with a launch pad tee box that must sit 300 feet or more above the green on this par 4 monster. Drive your tee shot straight out into the Rocky Mountain air and watch it drop hopefully to the center of the lush, downsloping fairway. Then hit your long iron to the left front of the right sloping green, earn your birdie or par and head happily past the beautiful Raven clubhouse and patio to the even more challenging back nine.

    The Raven's back nine has two very tough par 3s (#12 and 14) and five fun but challenging par 4s. But it's the two par 5s that really define the back nine here. #11 (properly named Waterloo) is a super risk/reward hole. Your tee shot hopefully will land just short of the large trout filled pond straight off the tee. A well-struck 200+ yard, high risk second shot over the pond puts you in great position for a birdie or eagle. But the more prudent shot tends to be playing the hole as a double dogleg and hit a mid to long iron left of the pond in preparation for lofting a high, soft iron to a green that can be tough to hold.

    My favorite hole is The Raven's signature #16. It's a long downhill, dogleg right par 5. Measuring 601 yards from the tips and 489 yards from the forward tees this hole welcomes a long, left center tee shot followed by an equally long and well aimed second shot near or on a well- bunkered, roller coaster green. From #16 you begin a long, uphill climb through two tough par 4s and finish at a high point on the course.

    After your final putt on #18 you'll drive a long, steep, downhill cart path with lots of switchbacks before returning to the clubhouse for a great lunch, dinner and/or drinks on the normally sunny patio. You've earned a beverage of choice following your Rocky Mountain high golf experience at The Raven at Three Peaks.

    Friendly, accommodating staff allowed me to walk-on as a single in a timely manner. Course in great shape and very nice layout. Great views. Very fast greens-get used to them quick. Several blind shots on the front so read the course guide provided.

    Our traveling group does an annual Colorado Goilf Binge playing 6 great courses in 6 days. Aug 21, 2013 we played 36 holes in perfect weather and perfect course conditions at The Raven at Three Peaks. It's a super course with wide fairways, large greens, great elevation changes, scenic holes and mule deer, fox, osprey and wildlife galore to enjoy in one day of great golf.
    The staff is friendly and helpful. A nice improvement from a few years ago. Thanks to Caleb, GM and Superintendent, I'd assume.
    The course's only real upkeep challenge seems to be keeping some of the cart paths (especially #12) from sliding off the mountain. A typical problem for Summit County including I-70 west of the Eisenhauer Tunnel.
    We played the Silver Tees in the AM which proved to be too long on the back nine for some of our players. Then we enjoyed a great lunch out on the club's patio before playing another 18 from the White Tees. A good move for our group.
    'Looking forward to including The Raven in our Binge again next year.
