Silver Creek is a great deal in the mountains. We love the open course layout The greens are really pure right now. The pace of play is always great. The course can be played short or long. I love to vary my tee boxes; it’s a way to use all clubs in my bag. I highly recommend this course if you are in the Show Low or Snowflake area.

Because I may be playing here again (step-dad has a cabin in the area), I decided to give this course an early season tryout. The course was just coming off the winter layoff so the grass was just waking up from winter dormancy. Nevertheless, the course seems to have a good layout and everything looks like, if you give it another month, it should be a nice course to play in summer. On the day I played, a front was moving into the area so it was windy. The course is not carved into the woods as you might expect, but in an area of high-desert scrub. Consequently, there is nothing to slow the wind when it decides to blow. Despite the wind, it was interesting trying to plot my way around the course. Also, despite the early time of the year, the greens were fully grown out and receptive, so a nice surprise all things considered. The only drawback was the debris that littered the greens, probably due to the windy conditions. I will be back when it comes time to escape the summer heat later this summer.

Nice layout with some challenging holes

Course was in great shape and the greens are really fast but true.

This one and Bison are must play courses in the Show Low, Pinetop area.

Silver Creek is a fun, challenging course located just north of Show Low, Arizona. The elk are frequent visitors here in the wide open Pinon Pine forest. The fairways are wide and well maintained. The greens can be quite fast and tricky. This rustic course doesn't have any bathroom facilities on the course (except a porta potty or two) which is really the only complaint I have.

To be as remote as it is, this is a real gem. Course is in great condition and greens roll true but difficult due to undulation.

My wife and I played this course and really enjoyed it. I am a 3.8 index and found it to have many challenges. The condition was wonderful and the layout was very picturesque. We played the other course in town earlier but found Silver Creek to be much more of a golf course. When in Show Low you need to take the little drive out (20 minutes) and play it.

The best public course in this part of the state. Greens have lots of slope and very fast so practice your 3 foot come back putt. Almost every hole makes you plan your tee shot. Often windy as this course is very exposed but don't let this discourage you just let the wind be your friend. Take drinks with you no water on course and no refreshment cart. Cart paths are not payed so your bag will get dusty but don't let any of the negatives discourage you this is a must play.

I traveled from Casa Grande to Show Low and the US 60 was shut down by APS. I had to detour and the detour was going to make me late for my tee time. I had booked a hot deal and figured I would loose the tee time. I called my playing partner in Show Low and explained the problem. He called the course and was told to show up whenever I could get there and they would get us out. It was a very windy day 20 to 25 mph winds. Course in very good conditions and the greens were wonderful. Generous fairways but if you miss them you have a problem. Again, thank you for the later tee time.
