Golf Course Review: Grayhawk Golf Club
Stay away from Raptor, no longer worth it
Raptor used to be a great course to play in the summer when the rates dropped, and I enjoyed the challenge. But I just played it this morning and they have basically ruined the course for me by the redesign of 15, 16, and 17 to clear out land and make room for a new big hotel.
15 is a so-so short par 4, 16 was wedged in to make a 97-yard par 3, and 17 has been shortened from about 420 to 270 years. This has taken all the teeth out of the finish and made for a disappointing ending to the round. And at the prices they charge this is no longer worth the experience, in fact it is just sad what they have done to the course. So stay away from Grayhawk Raptor and get your money's worth elsewhere.
Based on my experience: I would not play the course again.
