Starfire Golf Club undergoes course, menu, chef changes

Starfire Golf Club, 11500 N. Hayden Road in Scottsdale, is not only debuting a new golf course and driving range as part of its $750,000 renovation, but is also offering guests a new menu at the Starfire Grille along with a new chef.

Chef Robin Murphy

Chef Robin Murphy joins the Starfire Grille after spending time with the Arizona Cardinals, and celebrities like Madonna, Rascal Flatts and Aerosmith, according to a press release.

“We are so excited to introduce these new menu items, and our new wood fired pizzas,” Mr. Murphy said in a prepared statement.

“At the Starfire Grille we are proud to support local farmers, producers and artisans and everything we serve is made fresh on site with the best ingredients available.”

New additions to the Starfire Grille include wood fired pizzas cooked in Starfire’s new Wood Fired Pizza Oven.

Other additions to the menu include The Batman which features bacon, arugula, tomato, mozzarella and avocado aioli on Naan bread, and the Italian meatball sandwich.

Clams and mussels are on the new Happy Hour menu. There are also Sunday brunch options from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Sunday with a rotating menu.

In addition to the new menu items, Starfire’s golf course has been transformed into a King 18-hole (par 70) course and a Mulligan nine-hole (par 28) course. There is also a newly expanded driving range.

As part of the changes, the Mulligan nine-hole course now features a new innovative type of layout that will allow novice golfers, juniors, families and skilled low-handicapped players to play a round of golf all at the same time.

There are several features on the Mulligan nine-hole course, including two sizes of holes to choose from — a standard size hole and a larger eight-inch hole for an easier target — as well as five different tee boxes making each hole distance longer or shorter depending on the experience of the golfer.

The King 18-hole course, in the traditional format, has been enhanced with new landscape design.

The new 300-plus yard long driving range is an addition that golfers will love to utilize as a way to simply come out to practice their golf game or as a good way to warm up before heading out to take on the King 18-hole or the Mulligan nine-hole.
