Camelback Golf Club features two courses, Padre and Ambiente (formerly known as Indian Bend Course). The Ambiente Course underwent a major renovation in 2013. Making the course more eco friendly was one of the major goals of the renovation in addition to improving the layout's playability for a wider range of skill levels. The creatively shaped greens offer a variety of different putting options that present interesting risk-reward opportunities. The renovation added 100 acres of native desert and grass areas that add not only beauty but also require a third less water. Rolling terrain is the defining characteristic of the Ambiente Course, from the undulating fairways to dramatic drops in elevation. There are five sets of tees with forward tees that have easier approach angles and no forced carried, allowing even beginners to approach the golf course with confidence.

Fun challenge

We were blessed to play with Jay and Oz. Fun round. Pace of play was perfect. Greens were fast but not glass. Fairways were very green. Best to keep it in the middle

Good Value

Played this course just after they reopened after the winter over seeding. Fairways were lush and hadn't been cut. They looked nice, but the course played a lot longer than normal since there was no roll out. Greens were in good shape and fast even with some remaining sand. I would love to play this course again under normal conditions, but we still had fun.

Legacy Free round from Golf Now

Finally using up some legacy free rounds (Mon-Thurs after 12 noon only)- Naturally very few players on the course that time of day so pace of play was excellent- Course was in great shape and there are plenty of water stations. Beverage cart found me 4 times to make sure I was okay- Outside service staff (Jack) was awesome- Inside pro shop staff could use a little more customer service training or he was simply having a bad day

Wet

Every single shot plugged into the ground. Way too wet. Water is good for grass, bad for golf courses.

Course was in great shape for this time of year. Par threes were not over the top long and difficult to score.
