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.

Length of play
Horrible experience at padre today. They allowed a tournament to slip in front of us on the first tee and the pace was ridiculous. At one time 2 holes were open ahead of them and we saw no Marshall on the course. Even called the course but still, no one showed up. Took almost 6 hours and in Arizona summer heat. I won’t go back.
What you see is what you get
Overall course is a straightforward, no surprises golf course. The greens were running smooth and fast, roughly 11 on stimp meter. Tee boxes were a bit rough and uneven. Fairways were tight and well manicured. Pace of play could have been a touch faster, roughly 4:40 to complete 18 holes.
Staff was amazing! They took care of me the moment I got there til I left. Course was in good shape.
Really liked the padre course. Course conditions were good and the pace of play was good. I will play there again.
Nice Shape after summer maintenance
Today was the 1st day they reopened the course after summer maintenance. The greens where slow as expected, but consistent. The fairways and rough were in good share, some bare spots. I would recommend.
Very Nice Course
Played PADRE. Very nice course - greens were firm and quick - quickest I have played in Scottsdale. QUite a few holes where water comes into play. Fairways patchy in places but overall very good. Tees - played off Black - very patchy. Excellent range and practice green(s). Friendly helpful staff.
Fun course. Nice greens.
Interesting layout. Enjoyable pace of play. Greens were in great shape. However, around the greens something is going on and it was dead grass around the green on many holes.
This is the ‘parkland’ style course of the two at Camelback. Course conditions are excellent. Greens were fast and true until a late afternoon rain slowed them down. Perfect time of year to play Padre.
Fun and Challenging!
Great course conditions today, greens fast and true, fairways great all around.
Fun course, your shot selection will be challenged by bunker placement and a few water holes. Many of the greens are domed so land them true and soft...or roll off.
We would do this again.
Old course needs revision
This is an old style course with raised rounded old style greens. Only people who play it regularly would have any idea of.the landing areas, slopes, etc. This makes the course a very poor choice for first timers. The traps are all too typical of many Az courses, coarse sand that makes for hard surfaces and no loose sand.
While the greens and fairways are in excellent condition, this is a high price to pay for an old mediocre course.
Nice design, nice speed on greens, excellent manicured, Not a $200 a day course.
Really nice course. Perfect weather.
Wow. We had an incredible day. Weather was finally wonderful and course conditions were excellent. That and the pace of play was as good as you can ask for.
We would play this course every day if we could.
We got lost going from front 9 to back but it aint that hard to figure out.
Just a really nice day of golf.
greens were rolling great and fairways were very nice. Dormant Bermuda grass off the fairways so it was a great look.
Price was to high but we were visiting out of town and had wanted to play this course. Fun course to play if you haven't played it but there are better values elsewhere if money is a concern.
Beautiful view from many holes especially 9/18. Great staff especially the starter. Good value.
Padre is a very nice treat
What an enjoyable course. Got into trouble a few times when water appeared that was unseen from where I was playing a shot. Greens are fast and true, although a few have severe slopes that can't be seen from 150+ out. I really enjoyed the Black/White combo at a little over 6600 yds. I will enjoy it even more the next time I play it as there are several holes I will play differently. But beautiful to the eye with dormant rough and well defined, lush fairways.
Went to the course as a single and the bag guys hooked me up with another single who plays her quite a bit. Drove me to the range and put my clubs on his cart. Turned out we have a mutual friend. We’re joined by a couple and had a very pleasant day. Course was in great shape, greens were fantastic. Played in 4 hours so pace was very good. Would recommend the Padre course!
Day after Rain
This course is well laid out with lush fairways and perfect greens. The rough had dormant grass and we were not allowed off the cart paths at all.
At my age and considering my health, that was a bad surprise. Notification on that prior to teeoff with the option of cancelling would have made my day much better. Played with a 39 year old who has been in the golf business for 22 years and it showed in his prowess on the course. Very Cool!
