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.

Shalimar for the win

I discovered Shalimar on a bike ride. I played over the weekend and twice more this week! It's a fun 9 hole course, well worn and well loved.

Hole 5 is super challenging Par 3 over a ditch and water hazard, and if you make it on, it feels great.

Mid week, you can walk the course for less than 8 bucks!

I'm new to the sport, so this is a treat having this course just 6 blocks from my house.

Would play every day, if I could

If you are playing to get in 9 before the day starts, or just having fun with some friends. This is a great course to have a good round. I recommend this to any East Valley community.

About what I expecteed

This was the first time I played this course. It was inexpensive and you get what you pay for. The course is in rough shape. Lots of dirt and bare areas. Nothing scenic. The greens were quite long, furry and slow.

Poorly kept Course

We have played this course a few times and each time it is no better. This will be the last time unless they do some serious upkeep. The sandpits had weeds, balls everywhere and the grass is not cut, hard to tee off. Would be a nice course if it was kept up.

Dog track is an insult to dog tracks

Worst course I have ever played. Started on the first hole tee box...crab grass rough and a downhill lie...I couldn’t tee my ball more than an inch above the rough...and then only got worse. First and last time there. Made for 90 year olds, the ultra poor who cannot afford better, and beginners who know no better. I guess you get what you pay for!
