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.

Needs Work

The pace of play was quite annoying. There was a group ahead of us with 5 people and a head of them were 2 people walking. Pile up on the 8th and 9th, so we left early. The course was not in the best shape and the greens needed some TLC. Would have been better if the the group in front did not take so long.

Course needs work

Weeds in the bunkers, trash on the course. Fairways and greens were well watered. Some areas on the fairways were too well watered causing standing water which smelled. Steps leading up to the 9th hole in desperate need of repair as they are a trip hazard. Good course for a beginner. Staff in the restaurant were fantastic. Beer was cold, food was ok, menu was standard fried fare.
