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.

Surprisingly Challenging

Very small well kept greens. Par 4's are easy to reach in two, but because the greens are small not as easy as it looks. There is a run-up to most greens which adds to the challenge if you miss. The staff is friendly and knows my name.

Hidden Gem?

Easy 9 hole course. Conditions not ideal. Lots of mud. Staff was amazing and very friendly. 90 minutes it took us to play. Carts are nice and well-kept. Will definitely play again.

Nice nine hole neighborhood course

Shalimar is tucked away in an older neighborhood. The price was appropriate for the course and the staff was terrific! I would play it again particularly as a warm up for a week of golf in the area.

9 Hole course

It's a 9 hole course that charges $27 for 18 holes with a cart. Do not expect too much and be patient because it does attract beginners. Fun course with very good greens, fairways could use some attention.

Made a 6:07am teetime to get 9 in before work. Unfortunately, nobody showed up to open the place until 6:30. Then as we were about to hit our approach shot on the first hole, we realized that the flags were never put in and had to wait there until they arrived. Overall disappointing experience.
