Camelback Golf Courses
The Indian Bend course is designed by Red Lawrence. Most view this links style course as the easier play; however, don’t let that fool you. The fairways on this course are lined with many tall Eucalyptus trees, which allow a smaller room for error. On the other hand, the bunkers and water holes are not as dominant as they are on the Padre course.
Unlike its sister course, Indian Bend stretches out three miles from the clubhouse before returning back on the second nine. Wall to wall greenery is seen on every hole.
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.
The Padre Course, offers a diverse design that favors strategy over strength. Working your way through towering trees, your round will feature some interesting elevation changes. Hills incorporated some impressive bunkering that is a challenge for any skill level. Water hazards also come into play on several holes, including the finishing hole.
On the surface, Camelback’s Padre Course comes across as a gentle challenge. After all, the rolling fairways are covered in lush turf and the overall length of the course isn’t difficult to manage. Overall, the course provides a nice mix of easier and more difficult holes. Play it from the tips (at nearly 6,900 yards) and you’ve got plenty of challenge. Move up a tee or two, and it is certainly the antithesis of the notion of a good walk spoiled.
