The Short Course at Mountain Shadows, nestled in the foothills of Camelback Mountain, offers a scenic layout and a challenging round of golf for players at all skill levels. The course offers 18 holes of par-3 golf, a large practice putting green, a bonus wager hole, and top service levels. After a round, visit Rusty’s for grille fare and brews inside and on the patio. Desert and mountain views throughout the resort set the tone for a stay that’s relaxing yet invigorating.

It is more than just a simple par 3 course with a couple of par 4's thrown in for good measure. It is narrow and quite challenging. Each hole is unique and the view of Camelback Mountain is spectacular.
