Shalimar Country Club is a nine-hole golf course in Tempe. The course is best for beginners but it has enough challenges in store to make it a great option for more advanced players who want a quick round. The layout is comprised of three par 3s and six par 4s. It weaves through a smattering of mature trees and across gently rolling hills. The small greens can be quite tricky, especially since there are strategically placed bunkers lurking along some. Water hazards come into play on a few holes, including the 155-yard fifth, which is one of the golf course's toughest. You'll have to pull off a carry over the area's biggest lake to a heavily bunkered, narrow green. Shalimar Country Club's ninth hole is the most well known though, mainly for the island green. In addition to the water, there are also four bunkers surrounding the green.

We arrived 10 minutes early for our 1:00pm booking and we were told we were early??? Had a bite to eat, very friendly and good service in the restaurant. Didn’t get on to golf until almost 1:30pm. Overbooked. Pace was very slow. Waited on just about every hole to tee off. Looks run down, needs repairs, but that was reflected in the fee. Only paid $36.00 for 9 holes and a cart. Wasn’t overly impressed. Will not return.

Great course for a quick 9. Not a hard layout, but challenging enough to help an average player keep their edge. Friendly, accommodating Staff, and pleasant little Bar for a nice "cold one", or a great Sandwich after your round.

This has to be the loosest use of the term Country Club I’ve ever seen. Every other Country Club in the world should file a formal complaint.

This “18” hole course is just 9 holes that you have the privilege of playing twice. Nevermind that after finishing the “front” 9 there might be 4 groups stacked at #1 waiting to tee off.

Tee boxes: C+

Fairways: C

Greens: B+ (Tiny greens mean they are easy to keep up, well played)

Views: Sad houses

Overall this course is a relic of the mid-80’s. A course that was plopped in the middle of a sad neighborhood. This course is worth $50 for “18” if the starter (kidding, there was no starter) hands you $60 at the beginning of your round. Don’t be fooled by the name of this course.
