The Raven Golf Club
The Raven Golf Club, previously known as the Hawthorne Valley at Snowshoe, is nestled in the scenic hills of Pocahontas County, WV. This 18-hole Gary Player signature is beautifully situated in the Allegheny foothills, the course is etched into the mountainside and offers stunning vistas of the surrounding valleys. The rolling greens take advantage of the unique location, with elevation changes of up to 250 feet from tee to landing area. The Raven at Snowshoe Resort uses a lot of the natural terrain starting with the front nine which plays through hardwoods and around several lakes, and then climbs into higher elevations for the back nine, with several cliff-side tee boxes. Some of the greens overlook the entire mountain side, while others are also on top of a cliff. The fairways are tight, including eleven that are tree lined, so there is a real need for accuracy. Water hazards (three ponds and several creeks) come into play on eight holes. The elevated green on hole #5 is almost completely surrounded by the creek.
Each of the Raven's 18 holes is unique, offering golfers new challenges.
In addition to the championship course, The Raven is home to a driving range, putting green, full-service pro shop, and the tasty Raven Grille, the perfect spot for lunch or a cold drink after a day on the links. While at the Raven Grille, be sure to ask about the Golf Ball rolling game on the bar for additional fun.
In addition to the breathtaking views, guests of The Raven enjoy Snowshoe's summer climate. The area experiences little to no humidity, so afternoons on the greens are enjoyed comfortably in the warm mountain sunshine with “No Bugs.” The Raven's season lasts until early October, and with Snowshoe's exciting summer schedule of events, there's not a better summer getaway in the region so check out First Tracts Rental Management for all your Vacation Golf Packages.
