The Mountain Shadows Open Returns Dec. 19, 2018

Cap off 2018 by teeing off on The Short Course at Mountain Shadows in Paradise Valley, Ariz. with the return of the world-class Mountain Shadows Golf Open on Wednesday, Dec. 19.

The Mountain Shadows Golf Open is making an appearance once again as one of the Valley’s most action-packed tournaments with breathtaking views and competitive play. The tournament’s $500 entry fee includes a 9:00 a.m. morning shotgun, lunch at Rusty’s at The Short Course – boasting a stylish lounge and outdoor shaded patio overlooking Camelback Mountain – and an afternoon shotgun followed by an awards reception on Camelback Overlook.

Mountain Shadows Golf Open tickets can be booked at and guests can even make a night (or weekend!) of it by enjoying luxurious accommodations between Dec. 17-21 for a special Open rate starting at $169 plus resort fee.

Originally designed by Architect Arthur Jack Snyder in 1961, The Short Course at Mountain Shadows quickly became a favorite among Hollywood celebrities and socialites. As the new Mountain Shadows rose from the dust in 2017, renowned golf course architect Forrest Richardson (who worked with Snyder) redesigned the course by combining its storied heritage with modern features. The Short Course at Mountain Shadows is the only 18-hole, par-3 course in Arizona. With an emphasis on fun for the casual golfer, as well as the serious player, the newly configured and fully rebuilt course combines more difficult Diamond Tees, intermediate Square Tees and easier Circle Tees to be selected by the golfer to form their personal course layout. Views of iconic Camelback Mountain begin to cascade into the round of golf. At the final destination, the course spills into the resort as if it were a ski slope winding down from the mountain above. The course is playable in under three hours, leaving time for beers and bites at Rusty’s. Par-54 – 2,310 yards, 2,065 yards, 1,735 yards.
