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.

Don't believe the reviews or pics

Not sure if it was the season, but this place is a dump!!!! We haven't had rain for at least a month and there are mud pits everywhere. They boast a hole 9 that is supposed to be an island, yet there's no water around any of it. The pace is over crowded, constantly waiting and having the following group wait as well. The only bright spot was the cart girl, who was cool to talk to and she needs a new cart. The cart backfired on her all day lol.

Not what it used to be.

It has been many years since playing here and things have really gone down hill. The driving range was practically unusable, but the putting green was decent. The course was pretty rough and muddy. There has been no rain, so definitely an irritation problem. The winter Ryegrass was rough at best as well. I was really sorry to see this course in this poor shape. Winter rounds should be at least good if not great in the Phoenix area. Unfortunately, this course leaves a lot to be desired.

The course was in good condition and the price was very reasonable. The fivesome ahead of us (with three holes free ahead of them) made the round long. Thank goodness it was a beautiful day!
