JW Marriott Camelback Golf Club is the original property in the Marriott Golf portfolio featuring 36-Holes of Championship Golf, highlighted by the widely acclaimed Ambiente Golf Course, which debuted 3 years ago. The new course served as the culmination of a renewal project at JW Marriott Camelback Inn, designed to blend reverence for the past with relevance for the future, as the historic property, set on its Sonoran Desert surroundings in Paradise Valley, strikes the perfect balance between showcasing the best of the resort’s storied past, while setting a visionary course for the future. Ambiente, Spanish for the word “environment,” was designed with a detailed eco-friendly focus and serves as a complement to the popular Padre golf course, making JW Marriott Camelback Golf Club a one-of-a-kind 36-hole Southwest golf destination for both leisure and group golfers.
Marriott Golf manages 50 golf courses at 37 locations in 11 countries, offering nearly 1,000 holes of championship golf for seven Marriott International lodging brands. Marriott has been managing golf operations since 1970 and is one of the world’s premier golf operators. Marriott provides golf management and consulting services to a variety of operational environments including resort, private club, daily fee, golf school and franchises.
