Played on a Sunday afternoon as a walk on. Paired with a nice couple who hadn't played Silverado before. I enjoyed it, they enjoyed it. Played fast and course was in good shape. Will be back.

My father in law and I were happy with it, we played it at 6 AM earlier in the week and it was a good pace then and thought it was in a bit better shape that morning but not much better. Rumor has it that it was in the tail end of the over-seeding so some of the grass was starting to grow back in but it did not affect the shots we took. We were both more than happy to pay the price we paid for it, we would play it again and would recommend it

Silverado I think is a wide open coarse. Food is good and the people are friendly. They always get us off on time.

You could spend well over $100 to play golf in Scottsdale, but this course is pretty good for much less! First time playing, and I had family coming in from California for my graduation. Decided to take my dad here. The 18-hole layout is nice with a cart. I would not recommend walking, as there are some spots you have to go 1/2-3/4 of a mile to the next hole. Grass is green. The fairways are wide, great for a slicer like me. The greens are challenging: fast, and with steep bunkers all around to collect your missed shot. Some tee-boxes make you have to get the ball in the air to get it down the fairway. Excellent views to stop and take a group photo in places. There is also plenty of shade with the mature desert flora, something not found at many newer, "better" courses. Cart-ladies came around frequently, and the Marshall monitored pace of play frequently. There is no range, but they have a driving net and chipping/putting greens. We had a blast, and will definitely be back.

I’d played this track 14 months earlier and had nothing but good things to say about the course and pace of play. Played it again yesterday, and the day had it’s disappointments. First the turf itself was very rough, almost as if the mowers had their blades set too low. Lots of furrowed rows in the grass which should not happen. We got behind a threesome on hole 2 and stayed behind the remainder of the round , waiting on each and every tee box. This ended up being a five hour round, which should not happen on a short course (6,200 yards) and no one in our group lost a ball or was unable to keep the pace. The weather was hot, 95 F, so we all appreciated the number of water coolers about the course. I’ll come back again, and hope that the next experience matches my first, not yesterday’s marathon

Fun and well maintained course. Something for everyone. Staff and cart persons so friendly. 5 hour round though, as the foursome ahead of us were not keeping up with those ahead of them and only saw a Marshall once. Definitely would play it again but we hope faster.
