Type Semi-Private
Formerly known as Scottsdale Country Club, Starfire Golf Club boasts 27 holes of championship golf designed by Arnold Palmer. Located in the heart of Scottsdale, the central location makes it a popular choice for locals and visitors alike. The three nine-hole layouts, Hawk, King, and Squire, offer different sets of challenges but they are all known for their scenic but tough par 3s. You will face demanding carries over water on several of them. The King is the longest nine at 3,253 yards. Although the Hawk and the Squire aren't as long, don't underestimate their difficulty. The layouts are tight and the greens are fast. There are some long par 3s if you play from the back tees as well. The par-4 seventh hole on the Hawk golf course is particularly challenging as it doglegs left to an island green.

Nice golf course

Staff was very helpful and friendly. There is a range with restricted flight balls. Pretty short, tight layout with plenty of hazards. Accuracy is your goal. Greens were firm and pretty fast. Short irons would not hold. Bunkers were well manicured.

It was a stuggle

We were paired with two elderly gents who were very nice but had some health issues. One had Parkinson’s disease and had a recent stoke. The other man collapsed on the seventh tee. We were very worried about them,but they were OK when they left.

We have had many good days at Starfire so we just logged this one as an exception.

Good course

A little short for big hitters maybe. I’m not so fine for myself and my 14 year old son. The big knock is the lack of a full driving range. I thoroughly enjoyed my round!
