This is a old course. GPS is provided. Large trees and a lot of water. We played the Padre. The pace of play was great untill we got to hole 11. That's when we had to wait on every hole after that. Generous fairways and the greens where fast. We had good time over all. Would play this again.

I'm new to golf and have only golfed at 3 courses so my review isn't as accurate as a seasoned golfer but I thoroughly enjoyed the course. The staff was exceptional and the course beautiful. It's quiet and very well kept. Felt some pressure playing but that's partially do to the foursome of new golfers.

I went as a single to this course and was placed with two members who were a pleasure to play with. The course itself was absolutely beautiful. Greens and fairways like carpets; fringes decently trimmed and playable. I was worried I would be up to the difficulty level (I'm a 14 handicap) but found the course challenging and fair and came in on handicap. Staff were helpful. Last ... and this may seem like a trivial thing ... but when I get to the end of a course I visit that I really like, I often get a hat as a souvenir for future use, and I would have bought one for sure at Camelback, but their logo features the dopiest looking camel you can imagine. For a course in the "ritzy" part of town with Mercedes and Porsches lining the parking lot, that childish logo just does not match the otherwise impeccable taste of the club.

I booked as a single for 1:00 PM. The twosome I was with, cancelled. They then said I could tee off with another twosome at 12:30. They had left early at noon. I settled in with a threesome at 12:50. Wonderful to be fitted in. I had heard rumours about slow play. We never had to wait for a single shot, nor was there anyone waiting for us. The fairways were lush with some great rolls. Teeboxes were level......a nice change from some courses. The greens were fast and undulating. Once climatized to the speed, there were some great putts made. A great experience at a great course. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this course to anyone with less than a 20 handicap. Note.....the adjoining properties are breathtaking.

Padre Course was wonderful park land course, nice mix of length/difficulty of holes...all in great condition...only complaint was the greens on the shortish par 5s have, in my opinion, unfair slopes to the adjacent water hazards...caution all to aim for edge of greens opposite of adjacent water hazards, even with a wedge in your hands.
