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.

A good 9-hole

Good choice for something economical and quick, but also a bit more interest and challenge than the average executive 9

The course was in very good shape. The staff was very accommodating in getting me out (a little ahead of my tee time). It is a nice nine hole walk.

Best deal in the valley.

I'm not a professional golfer by all means but if you want to go to a course where everyone is professional and happy go to Shalimar. They maintenance team is working hard on improving the overall appearance but with the price and the lack of pressure to be so uptight and just PLAY golf, you can't beat it.

Great Value

This is a fun little course and is super cheap. It was in really good condition for the most part. Fairways and greens were nice, but mostly dirt on either side of the fairway. The driving range needs attention, no option except to hit off dirt. Great course for the money. With cart it was $18, walking is $12. There are a lot of walkers here so I replayed, but decided to walk. $5 replay to walk, $10 with cart. Easy course to walk and where else are you going to play 18 holes for under $20 this time of year?
