Great course with lots of open space. Accuracy is required on a few holes. The pace is a bit slower in the mornings. Course was in great condition at the end of July. A few bald spots but it's Arizona.

Got a great Hotdeal rate and really enjoyed my time golfing. Course was still recovering from the recent rains, but 95% of the course was in great shape. Had a great time with my playing partner and his dad. Greens were a bit on the slow side, but held a shot very well. Always a fun time playing here...not a long course, but accuracy is required on quite a few holes. Will play it again.

The only thing missing on this course is a driving range. However they do have warm up nets to hit into.

We found the course to be in average condition, at best. The fairways had many bare spots, making fairway wood play difficult. Silverado is also used as a water shed area and because of the heavy rainfall the previous night there was a lot of water on the fairways that we had to dodge.

I've played there many times before and look forward to better days at Silverado.

Silverado is a great course if you want to hang out in the cart, drink some beers and play Army golf. When I played the course it was in poor condition with bumpy greens. I could see how this course attracts beginner golfers or people who want to socialize rather than seriously play the game as it has a fun and easy layout that runs right along Hayden Road. Silverado's finishing hole is a 150 yard par 3, they do not have a driving range, and the pace of play is one of the slowest in Scottsdale.

this is the second time I have played this course, the first time there was a serious infestation of mosquitoes after a lot of rain, unpleasant. This time summer grass didn't take due to unusually cold weather, so course was in rough shape. The course is fun to play some day the conditions will be ideal, I will go back.

The first 9 was in really poor shape - even for summer in Phoenix. Course was very short in distance (even from the back tees) and was very straight forward. Tough to find the clubhouse because it was tucked away in a neighborhood - signage could have been better. Back nine was better.

Booked a hot deal for $20 and was well worth it. Very friendly staff. Layout was challenging but I'm a 17 handicap. Greens could have been better, but it was mid summer in Scottsdale...

This is a relatively easy course. We played in the middle of June so it wasn't in its best condition. The final hole is scenic and interesting. We sure enjoyed the cold towels as we finished. The staff is very friendly, including in the restaurant and pro shop.

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!
