Nestled in the foothills of Camelback Mountain in Scottsdale, the course at Marriott's Mountain Shadows Resort and Golf Club has one of the most scenic locations of any course in the state. Towering pines, palms, and oleanders scattered throughout add to the golf course's natural beauty. The sloped greens are protected by both sand and grass bunkers for some challenge. There are also rocky outcroppings throughout and natural vegetation lining the fairways at Marriott's Mountain Shadows Resort and Golf Club. With its scenery and challenging layout, it is no surprise that the golf course is consistently ranked as one of the top executive courses in the state.
