Course Description:

Grey Raven is a long and firm fictional track located in Louisiana Marshlands, also with mountains because reasons. Many holes play near water although rarely will they come into play. Despite the firm ground here, Golfers should have no trouble finding the fairway or landing themselves on the spacious greens. No carts, walking only. Please stay away from the edges of the rivers as crocodiles have been spotted. Fences have been put up for your protection. If you lose a ball, just play on. Please enjoy your round.

The overcast weather and the somewhat muted green colors of the Rustic theme combine to create a setting for this course that is fitting for its name. The grey sky, a bit of mist, and enough trees to keep the sun from peeking in really makes for a dark and murky atmosphere.

When you tee it up here, I hope that you have a cart, because this is going to be one long walk. The course measures at over 7700 yards, which is long even for tour pros, let alone the poor TGC golfer. It's a bit misleading, though, as the course is a par 74 with 5 par 5's and only 3 par 3's (I think, if I did my math right). There are still plenty of 450+ two-shotters and 200+ one shotters, though, so practice your long iron and woods game before coming here.

Despite the length, the course does play a little easy. The main defense here are the greens, which are firm but plenty large enough to hold approach shots. The pins are protected by being perched on top of mounds or ridges. While sometimes necessary to create a real challenge, the tactic is overused here and can be expected on a majority of the holes.

Overall, it's a fine course, if a bit quirky with dark atmosphere and huge length, that will offer you plenty of opportunities for a nice score.
