Not too long from the white tees. I work at a higher end course and have to say i was surprised at the attention to detail. The staff was very accommodating. Rangers did a good job of keeping play moving....will definitely be playing here again.

A good course for the average golfer. A fairly flat layout that winds through housing in Scottsdale. The course is lush and green and in good condition after overseed. The greens were fast and true but fairly flat. Bunders were well maintained but a bit compacted due to watering. As with most courses at this time of year, there were some muddy spots and a few fairways were blocked preventing golf cart access.

I played at this course after a long time and they have made some changes I liked. Course was in excellent condition but the pace was little slow. The only thing I don't like is lack of full driving range. If you happened to select this course to play then go practice at McCormick Ranch (5 -7 mins drive). Overall, i was happy with the course and also cafe in the club house with nice patio and view.

there was one group who slowed everyone down in the afternoon-- we notified the ranger on hole 7 and he did nothing-- we then called the clubhouse twice on the 10th tee and again on 13 and they said the ranger had gone home for the day AFTER they said he would be out to speed up play- not a good first impression- I guess Silverado isn't about getting golfers back a 2nd time!!!!

Booked an early afternoon twosome for Silverado, a course I've played many times. The staff here is usually very attentive. Unfortunately, we were paired with two not so proficient golfers who spent much of their time scouring the hinterlands for errant golf balls. They did not speed up until the sun was going down. Not the Club's fault, but please, if you are fairly new to the game quit keeping score. Quit the desperate, pointless practice swings and please, just drop another ball. You'll Improve (read speed up) everyone's game.

The course looked great after its recent over seed. The greens rolled well enough, but the fairways were damp and often muddy with no rollout. The rye grass was overgrown (5" plus) in some areas. Can't this be mowed? I actually lost a ball plugged in high grass in front of the 7th green.

4 hours and 40 minutes into our round, darkness forced us to quit. The final insult was tipping the bag boy wiping down my clubs, only to find them still dirty the next day.

I've always enjoyed Silverado. If they want to compete with the high end courses in Scottsdale, service and conditions need to improve.

This was our first time playing this track. Somewhat short, but interesting layout. the course conditions were very nice, and the staff was amazing. The pace of play was the only concern we had. However, not bad for holiday weekend. Like forward to play it again.

Had finished some overseeding and watered. Balls picked up quite a bit of mud; we ended up playing lift, clean and place.

This is a very popular course in the middle of Scottsdale that is always busy. With that said, they are able to keep the course in great shape, keep the pace of play respectable, and give outstanding service. I would highly recommend sitting on the patio after your round. They have a great eastern view of the McDowell Mountains and Four Peaks, and the beer is always cold.

Fair course, not to hard but not a cake walk either , challenging holes even for short yardage’s. Fairways could be a bit thicker of overseed. Fast and true greens. Even on off shots still have opportunities to save par. 3 birdies but 5

Doubles....ended up 10over.
