Arthur Hills designed the Padre Course at Camelback Golf Club to deliver a fun round that's tough to forget. Trees tower, landforms show subtly, and bunkers improve your golf skills. The par-72 golf course measures 6,903 yards, and has gained its renown by offering a design that requires strategy.

A round of golf on the Padre Course at the Camelback Golf Club kicks off on the par-4 first hole, which measures 446 yards from the black tees. Things get long on the fifth hole, a par 5 that comes in at 553 yards from the black tees, one of four 500-plus-yard holes. The 18th hole is one of these: It's 547 yards from the black tee to the post-round celebration.

After your round on the Padre Course at Camelback Golf Club, head to the Golf Grill, serving U.S. cuisine and a fancy Sunday brunch in the style of Southwestern country clubs. There's also a luxury lounge where you can spend winters on the patio by the fireplace.

Most of the cups have a crown around them

MOST OF THE CUPS HAVE NOT BEEN SEATED PROPERLY AND HAVE A VOLCANO TYPE CROWN AROUND THEM. THIS CAUSED THE BALL TO MOVE TO THE SIDE WHEN IT WAS 3 - 4 INCHES AWAYAND MISS THE CUP. THIS CAUSED THE FOUR OF US TO MISS A TOTAL OF AT LEAST 20 PUTTS DURING THE ROUND. YOU FOLKS SHOULD BE BETTER AT SETTING THE CUPS SO THE AREA AROUND THEM ARE FLAT. I DROVE UP FROM TUCSON TO PLAY AND WAS VERY DISSAPOINTED.

Cart path only with covid rules

When the course is cart path only and with covid, I was single and spent all day fetching my golf cart. I walked 9,421 steps playing golf on the padre course. Without your cart, you have no idea the distance as the course is poorly marked, The greens were very sand not grass. The price was very high in my opinion. I live here year-round.

Very disappointing!!

I really hate writing negative reviews but this experience deserves it. From start to finish as a disaster... Pulled up to the starter 15 min before our tee time and he informs us that it’s cart path only!! It was never disclosed on the booking or when we checked in. So needless to say that was disappointing. Because it was cart path only the round took almost 6 hours to finish. There are a couple a couple other details that made the day unfortunate. Try better Camelback!!!

No Call Back

My only complaint is with Golf Shop staff not keeping their word to call me back after I lost my range finder on the course. I called 4 times for them to check with outside staff each time was put on hold no one came back to phone. The last time I called reservations called the golf shop then came back saying golf shop didn't pickup. Course was great customer service SUCKS!

Camelback

Underwhelmed by the course conditions and course layout. No warning on cart path only and then paired up with another couple. Golf balls filled up with mud on the course with no way to clean them.

done with golf now

the customer service on this website is non-existent as it is impossible to reach a real person to resolve issues, and they don't respond to emails. I'm done with using Golf Now and will take my business elsewhere.
The DMV and the IRS are more customer friendly than these people

Great Scottsdale Course

Camelback is not an exceptional course but it is definitely challenging. They do a great job of keeping it in great shape. It is pricey. But you won’t feel cheated. It is just interesting enough. Centrally located . Great clubhouse. Good people. Good food. A class act.
