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.

Beautiful Course

The staff was very friendly and took the time to talk to us. Encouraged us to take a walk around the hotel to see what is available. The resort is very nice as well as the course. The course is all par 3. Situated north of Camelback mountain with beautiful views. The cart girl was around 3 times and provided cups of ice for the water bottles that were provided for us in the cooler. Will play this course again.

Good Short course

A great little par 3 course, challenging enough for a mid handicapper, and short enough to please a beginner

Short Stop

Got a golf itch that needs to be scratched without a major time commitment ? The Short course at Mountain Shadows will more than scratch that itch. Sure , 18 par threes can be a walk in the park, but your iron play, short game and putting better be in synch because the Short course is long on challenge and any tap in birdies will be prized during your post round quaff at Rusty's . And with the extra time saved you will make that ever present "honey do " list a lot lighter by the end of the day.

Like the old better

Very well maintained, but not marked anywhere for yardage off the tee boxes. Sprinkler heads have no markings. The new layout is confusing at times especially on holes 13-15. The greens are quite tricky, think it’s just not a good $value for the price, even if a resort course.

Thank you for joining us. With all par 3's, all the tee boxes are marked with yardages and yes, holes 13-15 are different. Something you've never seen before. Play it once and you've got it. So have a fun, fast round with the great view.
