Arizona Ratings (Scale of 0 to 100)


Arizona National (formerly The Raven Golf Club at Sabino Springs) is desert golf at its finest. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., the golf course meanders among the foothills of Tucson's beautiful Santa Catalina Mountains as it follows the rugged natural flow of the land across shady mesquite-lined arroyos and skirts craggy rock outcroppings. Along the way, its diverse 6,776-yard layout will throw enough tough decisions and classic golf-in-the-desert challenges at you to test the very limits of your ability. Yet, it has the flexibility to do so without ever becoming unfair. And, its always fun!At Arizona National we have more to offer than just the beautiful golf course. We have received consistent accolades for providing the best guest service in the world, and our facility is equipped with all of the necessary amenities you will need to round out an exceptional golf experience including: a full-service retail shop, learning and performance center, exceptional practice facilities, sports bar, and a restaurant with indoor and lake-view patio dining. This facility's service has gone down hill since rebranding the course to Arizona National and changing what is most important: the golfer that plays it.

Profile: This course is nestled in the foothills of Tucson's Santa Catalina Mountains. The course follows the rugged natural flow of the land through rocky outcroppings and a forest of giant saguaros. A series of rare desert springs are what gives the course its name. The course has elevated tees. Strenuous uphill holes, forced carries over raw desert and sloping, well-bunkered greens demand a full repertoire of shotmaking skills. The toughest hole most likely is #11, a 625-yard, par 5, which requires two forced carries over thorny swathes of reload country. "Golf Digest" selected this course 7th in the category of "Best New Upscale Courses" for 1996, and they also rated it as the 11th "Best in State" course for 1997-98. "GOLF Magazine" selected it 76th in its 1998 category of the "Top 100 Courses You Can Play in the U.S." Walking is permitted, but it is a mountain course and locals recommend that you ride. The nine hole rate is available after 2:30 PM. The 5,839-yard men's tee also has a ladies' course rating of 73.0 and a slope of 129.
