Silverado Course Review

Silverado Golf Course Scottsdale Arizona

Course Review - Silverado Golf Course

Silverado Golf Club was built in 2000 and is nestled in the heart of Scottsdale. Each hole takes has its own personality and will require you to play each differently. Some holes reward aggressive play, while other holes require patience and a delicate touch. If you can handle all of these personalities, your round should be a lot of fun. Silverado provides golfers with a skillful test of accuracy with its narrow fairways, strategically placed bunkers, water hazards, and deceptively sloped greens. Then, throw in undulating terrain, elevated tee boxes and breathtaking views of Camelback and Mummy Mountains and its obvious why Silverado has rapidly earned praise from both high and low handicappers and from men and women. Hitting from elevated tees, players can see much of the layout of each hole, including numerous white sand bunkers, lakes, natural hazards and mountain views. The back nine features contours, elevated greens, and is home to the more dramatic holes.

The epitome of the back nine is the finishing hole which is the signature hole of the course. The picturesque par 3, 18th hole is sure to end your round in spectacular fashion. To hit the robust green you must carry the water. However, just reaching the green is certainly not enough. The green is as well guarded as Fort Knox. First, you have to worry about an errant shot which will surely wind up wet and in the lake that surrounds three sides of the green. And, if the shot is slightly off it will probably find one of the four enormous sand traps that sweep around the green. Many golfers have taken more than 1 rip out of the sand as balls can fly from one trap to another. Once on the green, the undulating and deceptive slopes can play mind games with your putting stroke. Simply put, this hole will make or break your round. What a great way to finish
