Arthur Hills designed the Padre Course at Camelback Golf Club to deliver a fun round that's tough to forget. Trees tower, landforms show subtly, and bunkers improve your golf skills. The par-72 golf course measures 6,903 yards, and has gained its renown by offering a design that requires strategy.

A round of golf on the Padre Course at the Camelback Golf Club kicks off on the par-4 first hole, which measures 446 yards from the black tees. Things get long on the fifth hole, a par 5 that comes in at 553 yards from the black tees, one of four 500-plus-yard holes. The 18th hole is one of these: It's 547 yards from the black tee to the post-round celebration.

After your round on the Padre Course at Camelback Golf Club, head to the Golf Grill, serving U.S. cuisine and a fancy Sunday brunch in the style of Southwestern country clubs. There's also a luxury lounge where you can spend winters on the patio by the fireplace.

Mediocre

Felt more like playing a mid-priced daily fee course in Florida. Quite forgettable and loving off the glory of its sister course on property. Not going to be an issue for most but currently the course is coming off overseeding - fairways are extremely soft (think plugged balls in fairway) and quite shaggy. I’d stay away for the next couple of weeks.

Starter needs to get a clue

Not normally one to review but I do enjoy playing here but when you show up to the first tee and the starter gives your time away it kind of ruins your day….and that’s what happened. Stater gave my time away and then treated me like he did nothing…guys in the shop were friendly and confused even offering to pay for my next round. Unfortunately I won’t be back. Hire better people!!
