Shalimar Golf Club is a nine-hole golf course in Tempe. The course is best for beginners but it has enough challenges in store to make it a great option for more advanced players who want a quick round. The layout is comprised of three par 3s and six par 4s. It weaves through a smattering of mature trees and across gently rolling hills. The small greens can be quite tricky, especially since there are strategically placed bunkers lurking along some. Water hazards come into play on a few holes, including the 155-yard fifth, which is one of the golf course's toughest. You'll have to pull off a carry over the area's biggest lake to a heavily bunkered, narrow green. Shalimar Golf Club's ninth hole is the most well known though, mainly for the island green. In addition to the water, there are also four bunkers surrounding the green.

Foot golf

A lot of waiting to take your next shot. Foot golfers do not pay attention to where they are at in relation to other golfers. Should not take 3.5 hrs to play 9 holes of golf.

Good little Executive course

Was here years ago. Hasn't changed much. It was close and good value so that is why we went. That and my kids are still learning and that is a great course for that function.

Shalimar

I know it rained heavily the night before, but the issue outside of some standing water was dirt, like the course has been neglected for some time. $40 for 9 holes (even with a cart) is WAY TOO high for this course.

Decent short course.

This course reminded me of a course where I got my start in golf 40 years ago. The layout was good and the fairways and greens were in good shape. I went a morning after a rainy night so there were the expected puddles on the course.
This course is great for beginners or to practice your short game.

I enjoyed playing. The normal price is way too high so I'm unlikely to play again soon. But the deal times are good for the money. I loved the short clean course so long as the pace stays on course.greens needed a lot of work but that can be overlooked based on the price.

Low budget course

From out of town, didn’t know what to expect, booked last minute and it was available, should have known why. Poorly kept fairways and greens. Starter was not friendly at all. Seemed mad he was working so early in the morning. Initially told us that there was a frost delay, but when multiple groups showed up after us, he just said to get out there and start playing.
