Rating 0.0

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.

Great Short Course

With all of the courses to choose from in the PHX area, this is my first repeat. I thoroughly enjoy the short, yet challenging layout which tests my iron game. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful despite the fact I’m there on a Hot Deal and not a resort guest.

Played with a friend having stayed/played here 25+ years ago. Staff very friendly. Challenging short course - good for practice. Not a lot of shade so prepare accordingly.

Just....awesome. But don’t bother bringing your drivers

I don’t even know where to begin - the 5 star resort, the presidential-degree level of attentiveness from the support staff on the course (seriously.) or the breathtaking views from the moment you step up to tee off from the 1st hole; everything is 5 stars above expectations. Can’t wait to play here again next month

This Was Fun!

Par 3 excellence! A fun and challenging round will be had by all. Packed in a small space are lush fairways, tight rolling greens and a true test of your short game and putting abilities.

Course conditions were great and you might stop and take some photos of the spectacular vistas of this course up against a mountain.

Good par 3 in Scottsdale

Nice par 3 course perfect to squeeze in 2.5 hr round. Holes are 80-180 yards with some tricky greens depending on pin placement. Well maintained and courteous staff. Made for a nice well paced afternoon.

Great Short Course

Staff was friendly and very accommodating. It was my birthday that my wife arranged. We both had a wonderful time
And found the Short Couse challenging but fair. Rest assured we will be back again.

Short Game Workout

Hone your short game on this 3 par course. The holes are designed for all levels of play, the greens are slow but undulating so two putts are not automatic. The traps and elevation changes add difficulty to most of the holes. Scenic Camelback mountain is the backdrop throughout the course. Takes about 2.5 hours to complete the round.

Executive Par 3

This is a par 3 course. Interesting but not what we signed up for and quite expensive given what it is. Very slow play,
