Superstition Mountain Club
Where are we?
No course map, no gps in carts, not well marked to go from hole to hole-- our mistake, we did not buy a guide book in the pro shop before we headed out -- so we had difficulty guessing distances to avoid hazards. Each fairway had desert strips across them making it a guessing game as to hitting over or layup. The course and facility were beautiful - great views and a very relaxing round of golf – definitely a course I would like to play again!

Thought the course was in meticulous shape. Played Lost Gold and really enjoyed the course and scenery. The facilities were excellent, great range and first class staff. The playing time was 4 3/4 which was a little slow but doable. The course is difficult but has plenty of room off the tee. Thought the added touches like free bottled water around the course was a nice touch. All in all I would recommend Superstition Mountain for a completely enjoyable experience.

We got a killer deal at this course in December. Chatted with the golf pro for a few minutes before tee-ing off. I mentioned that I had a "funny stance" while tee-ing off. He actually showed up at the 8th hole and gave me some excellent pointers. Great guy, great course, awesome time!

Outstanding service, excellent course.
Service was outstanding: free valet service, locker, bottled water & ice. Course was in excellent shape and challenging. Greens were not in pristine shape, but were fast and rolled true. Will definately play again on my next trip to Phoenix.

Prospector Course not memorable but is in a beautiful if somewhat isolated setting. I believe Lost Gold has more character.
It wasn't a great start as the security man at the gate didn't have us on his list; the pro had never heard of us but said it was ok he could squeeze us in; and then nobody bothered to notify the starter of our existence! It was a beautiful day and the whole complex at Superstition is immaculately maintained. The round took 4.5hrs which is too long for our liking and difficult to maintain concentration. The layout was not memorable (Prospector Course only) and there were huge distances between greens and tees. The clubhouse was unbelievably confusing in its layout, people kept going round in circles and asking where the exit was! And all the light bulbs were low energy 2watt stuff which meant you couldn't actually see anything inside - forget about looking at the wine list or menu! Overall, it was a very nice day, Superstition is in a magnificent setting, the views were fabulous and low handicappers will enjoy the experience. We got a reduction of approx 40% on the green fees so were happy with the deal. It is not a course we would rush back to. I think the green fees at Greyhawk are similar to Superstition and that was a course we would revisit.

played Lost gold tee to greens was in excellent shape. The greens however were average at best.

Excellent from all aspects.
From top to bottom a fantastic course to play. Much like the private clubs I belong to.

Course was terrific. We made good decision to play from appropriate tees!
Course was in great condition. Greens were very quick and took a couple holes to get used to them, but were very true and fun to putt. Nicklaus always tries to mess with your perception of a shot, like more room on a drive than he let's you see, or harder shot to green than it appears! We played appropriate tees and that was a real good decision. We played Prospector course and highly recommend. Great experience in every way, especially if your handicap is 10 or less!

Deserving of its rating . Top shelf golf and facilities
Fairways and rough are perfect. Greens were generally the same with some exceptions , probably due to the cold January.
Tees offer quality experience for higher handicaps, do not be afraid to move up ! Staff was organized but very busy. Look for HOT deals on Golfnow , I played for $95.

Great Course, Need Better Rangers
It is a great course. however the play was slow. No rangers. we needed to skip the last 3 holes to finish by dark. the two groups ahead each had a hole open, however no rangers to move them along.
I thought we were playing behind Sergio the group was so slow.

We have had a great experience every time we've played it.
We were disappointed that we didn't get to play Prospector like we had scheduled. There was a mix up on days and we played Lost Gold - again. Lost Gold is a nice course too but we have not played Prospector. Maybe next time :)
February 15, 2013
I was not disappointed. Much better than my expectations.
I played Feb.8, '13. 60 degrees. Sunny. The course was in great shape for this time of year greens fast and true. Staff was friendly, the range was in good shape. The members we met were very friendly and love to talk about their club. Shows me that they care and are treated well by the employee's. I played "The Prospector" course. Look forward to getting back there to play "The Lost Gold" course. Hopefully before they go private.

Great condition. One of the best courses we ever played.
February 8, 2013
It was top notch track! If anyone can play this course it's a must.
February 2, 2013
Scenery is great
Course is very fair with wide fairways but is well bunkered and has fast undulating greens.

A must play if you are in the Phoenix
This course was in excellent shape. The fairways were fabulous and the greens were challenging. The mountains and scenery are beautiful. Staff were all friendly and helpful. It is a bit pricey to play there but the conditions and complimentary range balls, coffee, water and ice made it worth-while. Will definitely play there again if we visit the Phoenix area.

Everything was excellent, very challenging greens.
From the moment we drove thru the gate the professionalism of the staff was reflected by the way we were treated. Above all this golf course was the most important. The golf course was challenging but yet fair. One was required to use all the shots in the bag. Thanks again, will be back.
January 20, 2013
Everything was ideal.
The course was in wonderful shape. The setting was beautiful. The people were friendly and pace of play was fast. One of my top favorite courses in the Phoenix area.

Top 5 MUST PLAY in Phoenix
Enjoy all the makings of a Private Club, but at Open to the Public rates without ever being made to feel like you don't really belong. The entire place, from 1st impressions upon entering the gates, to the awesome clubhouse, the inside staff, outside services staff, practice facilities and both 18 hole courses; it is A+ all the way!!
January 10, 2013
we got a great del on golf now, but would pay up to 100 to play here. 1st class service and golf course. driving is generous, but then the funs begin, greens are well guarded by bunkers, and greeens are super fast and have suddle breaks extremly difficult to lag putt no room for error. one of my top 3 courses in the valley.

great condition, fast greens.
Other than being cold, and hailing for the first three holes, it was a great day.

Luxury Golf Experience
The good stuff:
-Amazing value: paid only $89 and it was our favorite course of the trip (even more than TPC).
-Greens were fast, true, and very well maintained.
-Scenery was always beautiful with the mountains in the background. There were also some very expensive homes to look at that surrounded the golf course.
-The clubhouse is a castle and the merchandise in the pro-shop was all high-class stuff (a little pricey though).
-The staff were very friendly and helpful. The starter gave us the best intro we could hope for.
-Big concrete coolers filled with chilled bottle water are found many times at the tee boxes.
-The layout was challenging but fun.
-Pace of play was great - we only caught up to the group in front of us on #17 and never saw a group behind us.
The bad stuff:
-Not very much elevation change. This hardly belongs in the "bad stuff" section because the layout makes up for the lack of hills.

Wonderful Private Club Experience
One of the Greater Phoenix most prestigious courses in immaculate condition. Greens rate 13 on Stimpmeter but are very manageable. Available to the public and affordable through GolfNow. Highly recommended.
December 25, 2012
what a fantastic course, every thing went well We were treated just like members from the bag drop area to the pro shop and the starter.
December 23, 2012
played lost gold course-been playing golf for 50 years-this is the best course ever
even the rough was immaculate-like we were the only ones out there-some phantom breaks on the greens-but they were great-this course is better than tpc stadium-you felt like a millionaire out there.

Stunning views from every hole
This course is set in a beautiful Sonoran desert with great views. The staff was very helpful and easy to deal with. The course was in excellent shape even though it had rained the past 2 days. The started suggested playing one tee box back if I wanted to stay out of the bunkers. Good advice. The fairways narrowed down at the landing areas. The greens were the fastest I have ever played on and rolled true. It is a private course open to the public on a limited basis.... It does not get heavy play, therefore a quicker round on fairways that are not filled with divots. I felt like a member in the way I was treated. Beautiful practice area, clubhouse, and facilities.... The LPGA played here for 5 years and loved it, and I can see why.
December 17, 2012
Nothing to stay but one of the best courses I haved played. Greens top notch shape and fairways pirstine. I did the twilgiht rate and was able to get in 18.
Again highly recommend if you can play it.

Excellent golf course!
I had played here 11 months ago and was so impressed that I brought a friend to share the experience. We both concluded it was among the top courses we have played on in Phoenix. For average golfers it doesn't beat you up.Very good service, top notch range (really like the pyramid ball stacks), great facilities and course is in excellent shape. We'll be back!
