The executive golf course at Mountain Shadows Golf Club in addition to being an excellent course has the added benefit of having a picturesque location nestled in the foothills of Camelback Mountain, and it also offers views of the equally majestic Mummy Mountains. The oleanders and palm trees sprinkled throughout the course enhance the pleasant atmosphere. The golf course's 18th hole boasts beautiful views of the sunset during the twilight hours but the signature hole is the par-3 12th hole. It plays uphill toward Camelback Mountain and over a pond and brook to a double-tiered green that is well protected by bunkers.

A good time had by all

A really fun and nice par 3 18 hole course. A number of the holes are located too close to adjoining holes. Worth playing, especially for no serious golfers.

Very nice executive course

Great conditions at this executive course. Many short par 3's but challenging greens. Tried to use their app for yardages, but proved frustrating to use. Better to use a rangefinder for yardages.

Not worth the golf now rate for a par 3 course. Not a good short game practice course as the greens do not simulate regular play courses

Best Par 3 I've Played

What a fantastic par 3. Beautiful course, views, and very friendly staff. The only thing to critique was the pace of play, so perhaps they could spread out the tee times slightly.

Great Par Three!

Course in very good shape, although tees are taking a beating, it is a par 3 course, after all. Greens in wonderful shape, staff efficient, friendly and helpful.

Really fun course! All par threes but a good variety Of holes and big challenging greens. Staff was very friendly. A bit pricy for a par 3 course, but it is Scottsdale in November...Only real complaint is that we finished at 2:30 on a Sunday and the kitchen was already closed.

Nice Executive Course

Very nice course with beautiful scenery. Gotta be the best Executive Course around. The pin placement made the round challenging which makes it worth it. It would be no fun if there was no challenge at all. Five stars all around!!

Cool weather. Course in excellent condition!

Today was quite enjoyable. Greens in excellent condition. Play time wasn’t bad.
Every employee wore a protective mask.
We were allowed to play alone.
The views of camelback mountain beautiful as always!
As the guys were cleaning our clubs. We were asked if we were staying for cocktails. Good effort at promoting the resort.

Overall an excellent round on this premier executive golf course.
