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.

Good value, friendly people

This was my first time playing Shalimar. I was impressed with the quality of the fairways and greens, the friendliness of the staff, and the laid back attitude of the other golfers on the course. The pace of play was pretty slow, but everyone stayed calm and just enjoyed the beautiful day. This is a great course for a beginning golfer, but it has challenges for those of all abilities. I'll be back.

Fun Course and Awesome Lighted Driving Range!

I just played this course for the 1st time with some buddies this past weekend. We had a few drinks after the round and wanted to play more, so we were so pumped when the driving range lights came on! We had no idea this place was even here, they said the range is open late every night. This place is the best kept secret in Tempe!

1st Hole and Driving Range Problems

The biggest problem was the first hole. You tee off then can’t find your ball mixed into the 3 dozen other balls because it’s is right next to the range. The range has very low fencing. They need to make the fencing taller so that range balls aren’t all over the first hole.
