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.

Worth a visit!

I played this course in late January. A frost delay was in effect but once we got going there was little to no delay or slowness to the round. A course marshal encouraged everyone to play ready golf and keep the pace up and it showed. The course was in great shape and was very playable for all handicap levels. The driving range, pitching, and putting areas were also in good shape and plenty of room for all to warm up. The restaurant, snack bar, and pro shop were also very nice. Accessible bathrooms and water around the course. Great experience--would definitely play again.

5 hour day

We were started behind a tournament that slowed the whole course down. Staff/golfnow need to manage better and disclose a tournament occurring before we spend $500+ on golf

Not worth the money

It’s a fine course and if I had paid $100 for it I would’ve been happy with the value. At $215 I would’ve rather sprung for Troon or Quintero.

Second only to Ambiente

Played with friends so always a good start. Didn't start until 12.50 and absolutely raced round, so really good for your focus. The views of Camelback Mountain are stunning and the course was really good considering the amount of rain that fell the weekend before.. Have played at this Club once a week for our complete stay. Love It.

Very nice course

I really enjoyed playing the Padre course at Camelback. It was in nice shape although I prefer courses that overseed the rough, but not a huge deal. It's really odd that they dont overseed the greens though, They are a semi burnt out bermuda. They were still rolling fine but the holes were falling apart because bermuda doesn't grow this time of yesr. I can't imagine that they hold up well through the Winter.

Over priced and unimpressive

Paid 200 glucks for an abysmal layout - greens are dried out and there is not a single memorable hole.

So many other courses in the area, stay away from this dog track.

Course was in great shape and the staff were great. Double seeded for fall so lots of walking. Needed to rent clubs- struggled due to draw setup on all woods. At end of game found out there was a key to adjust the heads
