Scottsdale Silverado is a nice change from the resort courses and super-expensive courses in north Scottsdale. Staff was universally pleasant to deal with, from check-in to the pro shop to the cart girl and course marshal.

The course itself is usually green, with a few forced carries but nothing extreme. Gold tees are the longest,, measuring out at 6313 yards, but most golfers play the whites, which measures at 5,734 yards.

Tee boxes are in good shape, though showing wear on most of the Par 3's (of which there are six). Two of the three Par 5's are reachable in 2 by decent golfers. Bunkers by the greens are in good shape, while fairway bunkers seemed a bit packed. Greens rolled at moderate speed, and held good shots into them. A few bumps here and there, but generally rolling true. Fairways had a few areas with light coverage, but mostly green and rewarding to a good shot.

The biggest trouble for golfers are trees, especially on the right side of most holes. Errant shots can force some interesting recovery choices. Water really only comes into play on #18, their signature Par 3 finishing hole. Short and/or left will get wet.

Only negative is pace of play. Even at this time of year, with snowbirds mostly gone, our threesome got around in nearly 4.5 hours. While we waited to play on each hole, the biggest jam up occurred at #13, a Par 3 that had two groups waiting to play when we pulled up.

Highly recommended for most golfers. Long hitters might find the course too easy, but I've always enjoyed my rounds here.

Nice course, fairways and greens fairly fast due to lack of rain and high temperatures . Enjoyed playing, not rushed. Plenty of bunkers, greens rolled true.

It's a good 'go-to' course for the price. Not too fancy but definitley not a muni course either. Pace was a little slow, but not due to the course / starter, just happen to have a slow 4-some in front of us. Play this course every once in a while, has some fun tee shots (especially 10 and the blind tee shot, makes you feel like you can drive your ball a ton by cutting the angel off). All in all, not my favorite course but it's a decent round of golf and play here a few times a year.

My wife and played Silverado twice on our recent 15 day trip to Phoenix. It is one of our favorites in the area and it did not disappoint. The golf course was in great shape and being very average golfers, we like the wide fairways, yet there is lots of challenges as well. The part that I can't say enough about is the friendly and supportive staff. From the moment you drop your bag off to the time you put your bag back the car, the starters, the pro-shop, the beverage cart, the marshal and the restaurant staff all go out of their way to make sure you are taken care of. We highly recommend Silverado and thanks to their staff for the great service!!

First time playing this course and found it to be in very nice shape and very playable. I went out as a single and got paired with a twosome. The foursome in front of us held up the whole course, didn't see any group in front of them for at least 2 holes. Marshall was out numerous times but no difference. Aside from that will go back, good value for that area.

I usually go to Phoenix once a year and I always make sure to play here. I like the course, it is easy to get around, The housing is not an issue around the course, they are far enough. It is just a nice place to play and the course condition always seem to be good whenever we play. Our cart was failing at time and was tagged to be fixed, then it shouldn't have gone out. (very weak on the brake)

Wanted to play an affordable course with my wife and 10 year old daughter that would be fun for me (long enough) and not too stiff for the family (costly and golf snobbery). This was a perfect place for that. A very well maintained course with open fairways, challenging greens (really well maintained) and priced perfectly. Check this place out if you are in Scottsdale and want a fun round that has something for everyone. Will go back. Pace was nice (4.15 hour round - no waiting)

When I played Silverado three times in February I would have given the course 5 stars across the board because of it's lush conditions. Now in April I found the course drying out. Additionally there was no beverage cart on the course in spite of the fact that the course was fairly busy.
