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.

Difficult and 'tricked-up'

Very nice facilities, well-stocked pro shop, good course conditions (January 2021). For an average golfer (handicap of 14-22), this is a very difficult course. There are MANY large bunkers exactly the distance you hit your drive. So to avoid them, you have to hit a dead-on perfect shot to avoid them, or you tee off with a shorter club. Elevated greens are designed to force you to hit middle of green. You hit long or to the side, and you're off the green into a bunker, or water. Very pretty, however if you're an average golfer, it's an expensive frustrating day.

Slow play but nice course and friendly staff

Arrived and rented clubs which were nice. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We were behind a foursome that was out of position and really slow. We saw the course marshal a couple of times but he didn’t do much to help.
