short course

I do like to play here because of the beautiful scenery and sometimes a short course is nice. However, often the prices are too high for a par 3 course. Golfed here today b/c of a "hot deal" on golf now. Not usually a lot of golfers here, so pace of play has been good. But haven't golfed here during prime AZ season, so not sure how busy it gets.

Excellent little par 3 course in the Arizona desser

We would definitely recommend this little par 3 gem which has the most spectacular mountain backdrop.

I would recommend that you have a look at your website design as the amount of pop up adverts is putting me off leaving reviews. If these adverts continue to make the experience un likeable I won’t be leaving any more in the future. I have been literally tearing my hair out to submit this review.

Great Time to Work on Short Game

Course was in wonderful condition, throughout. Wished some tee boxes for the day had been set back more. Sand traps were in good shape too. Apart from a little slow up on two holes (ladies moved more quickly when they noticed us behind them), pace was excellent. If you can secure a round for under $40, it is a great short-game opportunity, while having fun with your buddies.

Jewel in the desert!

Mountain Shadows is so much fun and the greens are so tough! Friendly staff always make you feel like they are actually happy you are visiting. The food at Rusty’s is above average. Nice 2 hr and 15 minute round.

Fun course

First timer.They don't overseed the greens. They were fast. Very challenging greens, so a 3 is just a guideline.Some border on over the top for pin placement. Good layout, good views. Great for a group and some wagers. Rack rate in season is a bit high. Would go back to correct some missed opportunities.

FUN! CHALLENGING!!

Don't let the 3-par's fool you! As ladies, we played the furthest tees and thought we'd be fine. Nope! The approaches and the greens are tricky and it was nothing to 3-putt this course! Super fun! Beautiful setting! Very friendly staff.
