I just want to give a THANK YOU to Jeff in the pro shop at Scottsdale Silverado Golf Club. Apparently in my haste to book a tee time on Golfnow, I booked it on the wrong day (6/7/17 instead of 6/12/17). As soon as I discovered my error on 6/11/17, I called Silverado to try and fix things. Seeing how I was to blame for the error, I completely expected a "too bad so sad" attitude from whom ever would answer the phone. Much to my surprise Jeff in the pro shop was willing to get the situation rectified and was able to book a tee time on the morning of 6/12/17 and honored the price I had already been billed for! Thanks Jeff!

The round itself was good, there was group of 5 beginner players ahead of us and group of 4 slow players ahead of them, so after 13 holes of waiting on each tee box we decided to leave the course. As were made our way to toward the clubhouse we contacted a marshal that was supervising the 4 slow players. He apologized for the slow play and suggested I stop at the clubhouse for a rain check. Instead of leaving we realized that there were no groups ahead so we skipped head 15th hole, there wasn't a golfer to be seen until we reached the 18th tee!

This course is a personal favorite. An always friendly staff makes a point to enhance your experience.

I live close by so it's even more of a favorite. The greens are kept nicely. The fairways are trimmed and good.

The holes are fun and diverse with six pretty hard Par 3's keeping your attention.

Choose to play this course as a single because the demo there is similar to mine. Mature decent golfer.

Love this course

This is a good golf course. The fairways and greens are a bit dry believed due to the hot season heat.

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.

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.
