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.

Memories at Mountain Shadows

Haven't played since the remodel but it's a very enjoyable track.
Greens extremely challenging with lots of contouring and some nice backstops. Multiple pin positions and the putts rolled very consistently.
Played as a twosome and we finished in 2 hours.
A couple of bottle waters per player were provided in the coolers, nice touch.
We were both glad we played at this facility.
You will be too!

Cart guy not wearing mask!

When we finished our round at 11:25 we came upon this male employee in mid twenties with his mask down around his neck. He was conversing with a mom and Approx, 12 yr old son( both w/o masks) who had just finished their game. Is it Mountain Shadows policy to allow the employees that are going to be cleaning our clubs to do so w/o masks? I should have taken photos, but was just too disgusted!

Thank you for joining us and for your feedback. We take the health and safety of our guests very seriously. Note the link to our Pristine Clean Program at Mountain Shadows and the Short Course.

https://www.mountainshadows.com/golf/pristine-clean

Masks are not required outside, but are required within 6 feet. With the recent record heat and away from guests, we allow our staff members to move the masks aside to get fresh air while in the outdoor heat. In this case, our staff member didn't replace the mask while helping a guest. We apologize and will use this as a coaching moment to reinforce the importance of following the health guidelines and make our golfers feel safe.

Fantastic Views

The course was a little bit wet from the monsoon the night before so definitely nothing they could do about that. Greens were super challenging for a short course. Totally worth the money for the views!

Short Course

I guess my review would be more for golf now as a website. When booking I saw no indication that this was a short course, but while arriving the sign says “the short course at mountain shadows” Probably should in someway make that very noticeable because I instantly was kind of bummed because it wasn’t what I expected. The course was beautiful, you definitely are paying for a Mountain View, pace of play was good, although there seemed to be an audience on every hole of either construction home builders eating sandwiches or maintenance dudes sitting on their equipment. Bar was closed, but they had coolers already stocked on carts with ice water, beer cart was awesome and very prompt. Beer was expensive but came quick, so no complaints. Tee boxes need some love.

Excellent fun short course

Super friendly and helpful staff. Played a "hot deal" in the afternoon on a very hot day. Fortunately, the course was wide open. Played for the first time after the redesign. Loved it. For the middle of a very hot summer, the entire course was in excellent shape. Plenty of bottled water was provided. A very nice touch. The course provides beautiful views of Mummy & Camelback Mountains. It is a "short course." You probably won't need anything longer than a 5 or 6 iron. The greens will provide the challenge. It's a great course for all golfers. The putting contest after the 17th hole provides some unique extra fun.

Solid Track

This course is a little over-priced since they did the renovation. Still the course is very fun for golfers of any skill level. Best thing about this place is the 4 person golf carts!
