Golf Marriott Shadow Ridge has golf school and world class professional fitter (Charles). I played every chance I could and enjoyed early tee time so could spend some time with my wife during the day. Course was in great shape and speed of play was fast with early tee time. Practice range was very nice with practice range, chipping and... More

We play this golf course whenever we can get a good deal, and this week that meant early! Which was fine considering the temperatures were going to be 100. The fairways and greens were some of the best we have played in the area. It is a challenging, but fun course, with just the right amount of water holes. The... More

Stopped by for a drink in the lobby bar and sampled the sushi. It was very good and the place was fun and lively.

This course is way over priced for the shape it is in. The fairways and greens were in fair shape. I expected exception condition for the price they charge. Even the views of the surrounding mountains were somewhat obscured by overgrown and sometimes dead trees. If you are a part time player looking for a fun resort course to play,... More

We just finished a five hour round with our group of four waiting on most holes. The putting greens are very hard with breaks that are impossible to read. Course is in good condition but if they want to charge high rates they need to get the pace of play under control.

This is my second time using their practice range. It is one of the best ranges around. Well kept, great staff, and the rates are good. For $25 you can use the rangevall day long. Besides having a range they have a chipping area, sand traps and a good restaurant to relax at. I

This course was in great shape. The fairways, bunkers and greens were top notch. Clubhouse staff and on course staff were very good. Look for discounts on the green fees. It has a range and putting area. Rental clubs were Taylormade M2's. Nice clubs. I would return to this course.

It may have been a combination of the wind and cold weather, but this was our least favorite golf course in the area. The wind was high that day and the cart had no windshield. Pretty miserable on the front 9. The greens looked to have a fungus or were in poor repair, not as nice as other courses. Also... More

The Shadow Ridge course was designed by Nick Faldo and I would encourage Mr. Faldo to stick with golf announcing. This course is tricked up to the point of not being a fair (or fun) test. The greens are filled with humps and slopes making putts a bizarre adventure. Around almost all greens are deep bunkers with severe faces. It... More
