The Camelback Golf Club Ambiente course has been a popular tee time with local and traveling golfers alike ever since it replaced the club's old Indian Bend Course in 2013. With the Ambiente Course and the Camelback Golf Club Padre Course, its contrasting parkland-style sister layout, Camelback Golf Club offers two rousing eighteens that make the club and its affiliated resort, the classic JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort & Spa, a true golf destination in Scottsdale. A lot of money and consideration went into the creation of the enjoyable Camelback Golf Club Ambiente eighteen from golf course architect Jason Stracka on behalf of Hurdzan/Fry Environmental Golf Design. This eco-friendly layout is an example of how golf courses can conserve water and wildlife habitats. As soon as it opened in 2013 the Camelback Golf Club Ambiente began racking up awards, including admittance to the American Society of Golf Course Architects s Design Excellence Recognition Program. With its 85 acres of irrigated turf and some 100 acres of native desert and grass areas, the playing field sports a Northern desert look with its mix of acacias, jojobas and sagebrush and blooming wildflowers. During your round you ll be treated to stunning views of Mummy Mountain, Camelback Mountain, the McDowells and the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. The distinctive design of Camelback Golf Club Ambiente features rolling fairways with significant elevation changes. Five sets of tees stretch the playing field from 7,225 yards to 5,538 yards. The options are well-spaced out, and, as a treat for those who find other courses too long and challenging, the forward tees do not have any forced carries. Accuracy and strategic shotmaking are essential elements of the game here. One of the impressive features of Camelback Golf Club Ambiente course is its large, intriguingly shaped undulating greens. Two-putts are not easy, especially if you aren't on the proper portion of the putting surface. Camelback Golf Club s practice facilities include a driving range and chipping and putting greens. The club's two golf courses, located about a 10-minute drive from the wonderful, upscale, service-oriented JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort & Spa, share a beautiful clubhouse that features a pro shop and a restaurant with an adobe-style look and a patio that is a perfect match for the desert surroundings. A day at the Camelback Golf Club Ambiente Course promises to be a unique and memorable experience at one of Scottsdale's original and most atmospheric golf clubs.
