Camelback Golf Club

Address: 7847 N Mockingbird Ln, Scottsdale, AZ 85253 (SHOW MAP)

The JW Marriott Camelback Golf Club offers two 18-hole courses, the Padre and the Ambiente. Nestled in Paradise Valley, the Ambiente Course enjoys stunning mountain backdrops. The golf course changed its name when it underwent a $10 million renovation that completely transformed the design. The makeover included removing the non-native trees that were obstructing the views of Mummy and Camelback Mountains, the McDowells, and the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. In place of the trees that were removed, more than 1,400 native Acacia trees were added. The topography was completely rebuilt, shaping the formerly flat golf course with rolling hills and contours. The course is more challenging but it’s still player friendly enough to both low and high handicappers.

Ambiente Course

Designed by notable golf architect Jason Straka on behalf of Hurdzan/Fry Environmental Golf Design, Ambiente presents a distinct challenge where accuracy and a good strategy command the day, as every hole will force even the best players to focus on each and every shot. Golfers find the eye-catching elevation changes, as well as rolling fairways with significant drops throughout the course, are among its most striking features. Ambiente was completely renovated and re-opened as a new course in November 2013.

 

Padre Course

From the mind of world-renowned golf course architect Arthur Hills comes a course that promises an enjoyable and unforgettable golf adventure. The Padre Golf Course in Scottsdale features towering trees, subtle landforms and impressive bunkering to sharpen your game. This 6,903-yard, par 72 design is known for its strategic layout, challenging water holes, and had its 18th hole voted the best water hole in the state by Arizona Golf Magazine.
