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.

Neighborhood Cource

It's always a pleasure to play a neighborhood course. The people seem to be more friendly. This course has a practice rance, putting green, an adequate pro-shop and restaurant with a covered patio. I enjoyed playing here and will definitely be back.

Older course, still great

Shalimar has been around for a long time. It's very casual with a lot of ASU students coming in to golf, locals, etc. The course has a few challenges, but is good for beginners. I've been playing there since high school, and while it is showing it's age, it's still a good day of golf.

Has improved over the years

When visiting family we play this course often. Although not in great condition, the greens and fairways have improved considerably in the past three years.

On thing I like about this course is that is is good for people just learning to golf since they can take the time to enjoy the game.

Overpriced for a 9 hole

Charging 18 prices for 9 hole. Playing 18 at other places cart included is cheaper than walking a 9 here. Course shape is mediocre.

Course too dry and ground hard.

The course was very dry and hard. Greens weren’t in good shape, it had some rough spots that made the ball bounce when hit to the hole.

Never will play again

I have played this course at least a doz time and now longer will play. Too many people goofing around on the course, either on carts or just have no urgency. Wasn’t able to play 9 holes due to no consideration of others. I Blu was able to play 6 holes in 2 1/2 hrs. Where is the marshal to get the games going.? No where to be found. I guess the lower prices you get the rift rats. Do not suggest playing here
