 Golf Tournament at Mountain Shadows

The Co-Owner‚s Annual Golf Tournament is one of the recreational highlights of the weekend. As you may be aware, the golf course formerly called Indian Bend has been completely reconstructed and will soon reopen. The new name of the course is Ambiente. The course will complement the Padre course but with a completely different look and feel.

The final stages of construction have required the closing of both golf courses for October. There is no need to worry. We have made arrangements for this year‚s tournament to be held at the Mountain Shadows Golf Club. Although the Mountain Shadows Resort has been closed for several years, the golf course has remained open and continues to be a local favorite. The course offers breathtaking scenery of the surrounding mountains and the executive layout provides for a faster round of play.

Our format is a best ball scramble. The $50.00 entry fee covers greens fees, cart for 18 holes and prizes for the winning teams. Lunch is available at the Mountain Shadows Golf Grille. The Bell Stand can store your clubs and provide transportation. Rental Clubs are available at Mountain Shadows.

 Special Friday Night Event

Your Board of Directors has planned a special dinner event for Friday, October 18 at the Camelback Golf Club‚s Lakeview Pavilion. Transportation will be available from the circle and if you arrive early, you will have the opportunity for a tour and first look at the new Ambiente Golf Course which is scheduled to open in November.

The evening will begin with cocktails served on the outdoor terrace offering great views of the new golf course at sunset. A spectacular buffet dinner has been carefully planned by the Resort‚s event management team and will feature a selection of entries, salads, side dishes and desserts prepared by the Resort‚s award winning culinary staff.

This will be a special evening you won‚t want to miss. The $75.00 charge for dinner will be billed to your room. If you are not staying at the resort and wish to attend, please make payment arrangements with Wanda when you send in your event registration.

 Submit your questions in advance

At the Annual Meeting on Saturday morning Co-Owners will hear reports from the officers of the Board of Directors as well as the Resort‚s General Manager and the Partnership‚s General Partner. Their remarks are followed by a question and answer session.

This year, in addition to questions from the floor, we are providing the opportunity for Co-Owners to submit questions in advance. Please feel free to submit your questions even if you cannot attend the meeting. We will report back the answers in a future email.

 Making your reservations

You can request your room reservations at Camelback Inn directly on your computer from the Co-Owners website which is www.camelbackowners.com.
