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.

Poor Conditions

Usually a fun 9 hole to play. It was in brutal conditions. Greens were sandy and the grass was long. Pace of play was almost 3 hours for 9 holes. Definitely my worst experience here. Wish there was a disclaimer as it is worth no where near what they are charging at this time.

Worth the money for 9 holes

Really enjoy the layout of this course. Love being able to go out and play 9 holes with more par 4s than par 3s. Lots of holes you can drive the green or lay up and play it smart. The bunkers on hole 1 need some work / maintenance. Same as hole 9 but everything in between was great! Definitely coming back to play for a quick and satisfying 9 holes!

Be Glad it’s cheap or you would be Furious

Golf carts are not even kept out available & cleaned :/ Much of fairways are bare dirt poorly maintained in every way , greens are a mess , they don’t bother to keep range balls off the course and people that live in neighborhood are walking wherever oblivious to golf etiquette or potential safety risk . Zero money spent to maintain or improve course in anyway fir a long time , it’s too bad if someone cared could be a fun short course gem if invested in

Good place to bring beginners

Brought my friends son too play here multiple times. It’s a throw back nine hole course in the middle of a neighborhood. Got a few places with some trouble so they get a deal for sand and water. Pretty flat and forgiving for the beginner player. But the one thing that helps a more advanced player is the tiny greens….so you are able to get a good short game workout in.

Break glass in case of desperation

Luckily the weather was perfect because there isn’t much to look fondly on about this course. I will give the cart person credit that we saw them twice in nine holes. Could recommend if it was $20 for nine, but the greens we’re as much dirt as grass.

Decent 9 hole city course

Greens good, fairways with bald patches in places cart paths in rough shape, flat course, 3 parr 3’s, 6 par 4’s. Price should be no more than $40.. Good electric carts …but walkable. Good pace of play. Good restaurant & bar.. Could be a very good little course. Just needs some TLC and soon!
