The executive golf course at Mountain Shadows Golf Club in addition to being an excellent course has the added benefit of having a picturesque location nestled in the foothills of Camelback Mountain, and it also offers views of the equally majestic Mummy Mountains. The oleanders and palm trees sprinkled throughout the course enhance the pleasant atmosphere. The golf course's 18th hole boasts beautiful views of the sunset during the twilight hours but the signature hole is the par-3 12th hole. It plays uphill toward Camelback Mountain and over a pond and brook to a double-tiered green that is well protected by bunkers.

Great short par 3 course

Have been playing here for several years and always enjoy this short par 3 course that can be played in about 2 and 1/2 hours.

Beautiful Executive Course

Loved this course, I went with a girlfriend who is a beginning golfer and this all par three layout was just great for her. The holes were actually pretty challenging and gave me a chance to really work on my short game. For an executive course the greens were unbelievable. Many with multiple tiers and challenging undulations. Great place to work on your short game with absolutely stunning views of Camelback Mountain. The restaurant which is part of the hotel was fantastic and I had a great burger.
I highly recommend the course.

Ok par 3

There was good and bad ! First is when I booked the round I just assumed we were getting a full length at least par 70-72 course and of course it wasn’t ! That’s not Golf Nows fault that’s ours the par is labeled on the booking so duh! But the course was still overpriced for a Par 3 but welcome to Phoenix folks!! Staff was nice greens were nice! More courses should have a couple putting greens around the course like this one did , nice touch!
