Type Resort
Camelback Golf Club features two courses, Padre and Ambiente. 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.

So much grass!

One of the advantages of playing an older course is the amount of grass - these guys know how to take care of it. The greens are the best I've played for this time of year - they actually putt true!

Great layout

First time playing this course. The staff was one of the friendliest I've seen at a course. The greens were in superb shape for July and had some speed to them. The links style layout is beautiful and there is a nice mix of length par fours.

A summertime steal

This course is one of the best public courses in the State. It is challenging and will make you think on every hole. I was shocked to see a $30.00 rate in the summer. This course is a steal a $50.00 in the summer. The greens were punched about two weeks ago but they are coming back nice. I would highly recommend this course to anyone that has a golf game.

Not good

I know it's only temporarily but the entire course was in horrible condition. I get that aeration is necessary but the course should notify GolfNow so people that book there should know what to expect

Definitely not a desert course

This course is more like an east coast golf course with a few cactus. Most of the course is flat and there are few elevation changes . The greens are super fast and the fairways are in good condition. The one negative is that many of the sand traps were lacking on sand.
