The Squire nine-hole golf course at Scottsdale’s Starfire Golf Club is now available for play. The Hawk and King courses will continue to be available as Starfire’s 18-hole experience.
Upon reopening, the rate to play Squire will be starting at $20 to walk and $26 with a golf cart. Two special promotions will be available: a “9 and Dine” promotion offering nine holes and choice of breakfast or lunch; and a “9 and Wine” promotion offering nine holes of golf and a drink ticket.
“The new routing gives us much more flexibility to accommodate a variety of golfers ranging from accomplished players pressed for time to junior golfers just getting into the game,” said Jason Brill, head golf professional for Starfire Golf Club. “The latter really goes to the heart of ‘growing the game,’ which is a huge priority for anyone involved with golf. And we highly encourage golfers to walk the course to maximize the exercise benefits.”
The Squire course plays to 2,782 yards from the back tees at par 34 with two par 5s, three par 4s and four par 3s. The King/Hawk course plays to a par 70 at 6,106 yards from the back tees with four par 5s, eight par 4s and six par 3s.
“Given the fact that most people are short on time as well as watching their budgets, the 9-hole course addresses those issues while also making room to enjoy the things that surround the game,” said Matt Lupton, general manager of Starfire Golf Club. “Walking the course is great exercise; it’s perfect for spending time with family and friends; and it allows more time to hang out on the patio to enjoy happy hour. League play also is much easier to accommodate. In the coming months, we will be rolling out a number of appealing time and money-saving golf opportunities for our guests.”
Located in the heart of Scottsdale, Starfire Golf Club offers 27 holes of golf designed by Arnold Palmer. The 2,782-yard, par-34, 9-hole Squire and the 6,106-yard, par-70, 18-hole King/Hawk offer parkland-style golf experiences with fairways flanked by mature trees and shimmering water hazards.
The Starfire Grille serves up breakfast, lunch and happy hour daily in a comfortable Arizona indoor-outdoor setting. Starfire also hosts a variety of gatherings such as group golf tournaments, weddings and receptions, corporate events and meetings, holiday parties and other special events at the newly renovated Palmer Ballroom, which opens to a spacious covered patio and manicured event lawn.
