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.

We've had a lot of rain in the last couple of months causing the grass to really be green and growing. The course looks good.

Terrible , terrible, terrible

Other than the greens which were in
decent shape, entire course was in horrific condition ! Looks like landscape and course maintenance / upkeep is on a zero budget ! Nothing has been overseeded properly , all rough is completely uncut or cared for , bunkers have had zero upkeep have zero sand , all weeds & grass clippings , poor management & waste of any money to play ! Disappointing how this course has gone downhill from what was once a fun short track !

Nice little course

I play Shalimar a lot. It's great for a high handicapper to work on iron play on the short par 4s and hole 5's island green is always a challenge. The neighborhood is nice, the staff are friendly, and there are few if any DBs cursing about not being as good as the tour pros again. I'm rating it realistically as it ain't TPC (everything has five stars nowadays), but it's my home course and I love it. In fact, never mind. The course is garbage. Stay away so it'll be wide open for me! (-;

Hidden gem

A laid back vibe with friendly staff and decent amenities. Shalimar is what it is. A cheap, fast, 9 hole perfect for hacks like me. The course needs work and it’s obvious from the get go. However, if you know what you’re getting into, it’s a fun course. If you’re a serious golfer looking for a challenging track, Shalimar is not for you.

Nice course for the money

The course was nice. Pace of play was too slow. We had to stop on the 7th hole because we were almost 2.5 hours into the round and had to leave.

Needs a major investment

I played this course 20 years ago and had nice memories from then. It’s clear that they haven’t done anything to it since then. The liner on the lake is floating, everything is overgrown. The grass is 40% dirt around the fairway. The greens are okay and it was nice around the hole. The rest of the community just needs a budget and some effort.
