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.

Got a round in for the first time on this course on a Saturday November 2021. Grass was green, well maintained for the round. Desert landscape around (might lose a ball or two lol). Course map is fun! Long shots, short shots, it has it all. I would definitely come back and try to better my score. Have fun! (Not golf related: restaurants were under construction). Cart lady was legit

Foot Golf

It’s a good course great value for the money. My only negative point is they allow foot golf and that really messes up the pace of regular golfers

Horrible course

Course had range balls on first hole from the out of bounds marker into fairway. Lost my own ball in the mix. Also course is poorly laid out. It had foot golf markers up and was difficult seeing the flag for the hole you were playing.

Give it time

over seed was nor even close to welcome golfers. Putting greens were like putting in your back yard that you didnt mow. I am sure this is a good course, but I should have had coffee with the guys watching me finish the last hole.
