Nestled between Mummy Mountain and Camelback Mountain—two iconic Arizona landmarks—lies one of the gems that have helped make Scottsdale such a popular golfing destination. Camelback Golf Club is one of the finest and most-awarded courses in Arizona, featuring two courses and thirty-six holes of championship golf in a setting that promises every golfer a dynamic and satisfying tee time. The public can book Camelback Golf Club tee times for both courses on the property and so too can residents of Scottsdale and visitors from around the world.
Camelback Golf Club's Padre Course was redesigned in 1999 by Arthur Hills, a world-renowned golf course architect whose more than 180 course projects include the LPGA International Legends Course and Chaska Town Course. Camelback Golf Club tee time bookers at the Padre Course will be amazed at this course’s ability to take full advantage of the surrounding Scottsdale geography as this course is well-known to utilize the lush and unique landscape found within the foothills of Camelback Mountain. This helps to create a fun and unique course experience that provides a challenge without being too overwhelming for new players or younger golfers.
Unlike other courses in the area, the Padre is not a desert golf course but instead a parkland course, making it unique to the Scottsdale area. Camelback Golf Club tee time bookers who end up playing at this course should anticipate and expect abundant tee times and to see green fairways, rolling hills and water features unmatched by other courses in the Scottsdale, AZ region.
Padre's 6,868-yard, par 72 layout is known for its towering and impressive trees, carefully sculpted elevation changes and landscaping, as well as the incorporation of hills to frame and emphasize the 50 unique bunkers that have made this layout well known. Fairways feature Bermuda grass, while the greens tend to favor Tifeagle grass for the perfect blend of durability and playability. Additionally, there are several water hazards that come into play on many of the holes, including the famed and memorable finishing hole, which has been voted the best water hole in the state of Arizona by Arizona Golf Magazine and recognized as one of the best in the country by industry professionals. This acknowledgement has helped boost Camelback Golf Club’s tee time bookings at this course, making it one of the more popular options in the area.
The Padre course guarantees to offer a challenge for any skill level, and thanks to the sunny, warm and dry weather in the area, those who book Camelback Golf Club tee times at this course will be able to do so all year-round. Camelback Golf Club tee times are also open to the public.
