Shalimar Golf 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 Golf 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.

Nice little course

We are not professional players so it was just right for us with a couple holes quite challenging. But lots of fun. Sometimes hard to see the flag at the green , a red flag would be may more visible for all.

Short course...tiny greens

The course is an executive par 33 course. The greens are very small and average speed. Pace of play was good as we finished nine holes riding in 1 1/2 hours. Fairways are green and in decent shape but the roughs are exactly that rough! The par four holes require accuracy in that some are tree lined or lined with homes. We paid under 6 bucks riding on a hot deal through golf now VIP rates. Have seen it advertised at $33 for 18 riding. Probably not worth $33 since the 18 would require repeating the nine holes. But an under ten rating for nine is worth the drive.

Only complaint was pace of play - they need a marshall to deal with slow groups.

Just Alright

This course is a fair value. However, our group did not enjoy the fact that there were "foot golfers playing soccer on the course. A golf club that allows soccer players to use their course? This was a very big turnoff from us playing here again. I guess the saying "you get what you pay for" applies heavily here.

The highlights of this course are the chipping area, hole #5, and $4 well drinks anytime. Yes, you read that correctly. $4 ANYTIME. The food at the bar is great though.

If you want to play serious golf, you might want to look elsewhere. I would only recommend this course to someone looking for a cheap, easy, laid back course. Shalimar can be a great time if you know what to expect.

First visit to Shalimar

My tee time was 10:30. Course was busy and pace was fast. A little too fast. Fairways are in great shape and the greens as well. Staff was friendly. I would recommend.

Couples golf

My wife and I played on a Monday morning. We never caught up to the group in front of us and the three foursomes behind never caught up with us. The course is fairly wide open and my wife likes and needs that. The fairways and greens were in great shape and I was able to make several putts. We will be back for casual golf that was fun

Not what it used to be

Have been playing this track for decades. It is slowly but surely going downhill and no longer a good value for the money. At the price of 9 holes at Shalimar, you can play 18 holes at several other courses within 10 miles of Shalimar, and they are in much more playable condition. No reason to play here except on a spur-of-the-moment basis for a quick 9, as there is almost always a great chance to just show up and walk on.

Fun course

Great course for occasional and beginning golfers. It would be easy to nit pick about patchy fairways and shaggy greens but to be honest we had a fun round. The par 4s are long enough to use your driver and I think I used most of my irons too. The refreshment cart came by three times which was nice. This course is a great value if you can relax and have fun. There’s always TPC Scottsdale for you low handicappers.
