Located a short distance from Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix and Arizona State University, Kokopelli Golf Course is a championship length course that offers many interesting challenges. The rolling terrain creates sloping greens and undulating fairways. A majority of the teeboxes and greens are elevated as well. The course also has large multiple island tees and water hazards in the form of meandering lakes that come into play on several holes. The signature hole of Kokopelli Golf Course is the par-5 18th hole. The dramatic finishing hole calls for a shot off an elevated too followed by an approach shot past water to an elevated green.

Great bones, Awful conditions

First time playing, took some clients and was very disappointed in the golf course. Conditions have to be the worst in the valley, hard pan dirt everywhere and no sand in bunkers however there are plenty of weeds. At some point I'm sure this was a great golf course but funding must be non existent as there are some basic things that could make this course much better. Greens are challenging but fair and in good shape.

Challenging course

Fantastic course that seems to have fallen on hard times in recent years with regards to course upkeep.
I love the course but a lot of the bunkers are in shocking disrepair.
I also feel for the greenskeeper and his crew. They are either rubbish or what I feel is closer to the truth, totally overwhelmed.
This course needs a massive influx of funds to improve the drainage and the dirt areas.
Greens and fairways are still good though.
And please send someone out every day to PICKUP THE RANGE BALLS THAT FLY OVER THE FENCE.
Good course - fix the bunkers and get rid of the dirt and mud. Planting grass might be a start!!!!!!!!!!

OMG

This course is in the worst condition of any course I've played....ever!!! The pace of play was equally as brutal. It took us over 5.5 hours to play. I would not recommend playing here...ever!!!! It's too bad because the last time I played here was around 5 years ago and it was in much better shape. The cart girl even said she'd come around again after asking us on the second hole if we needed anything and we didn't see her again.

Own decision

Reading the reviews this course did not sound great. However we choose to play there anyway to make our own decision. Love the course. Yes needs some work but my understanding is they are slowly working on that. Will be such a nice course when the work is done.

Started 2:50 ish and ended up 11 hole.
As usual, no sand in the sand traps except some holes. Delayed several groups almost every hole except first and second hole....

Didn’t finish playing 18

Played in Jan
First time playing here
Loved the rolling hills
Lots of weeds and sand traps were unplayable
Staff was great
It took 2 1/2 hours to play 9 so we did not get all 18 holes played
Being here from Iowa to play golf and not finish our round was disappointing
Needed a Ranger to keep play moving

Course has potential but very poor maintaince

I’ve never seen a golf course that just did not care about the curse conditions. Sand traps are just a hazard for a free drop. No sand. Please put some money in this course! It can be good!!

Poor playing Conditions

Overgrown and turned into unplayable Santraps
Aesthetics not well groomed
Tee markers are a guess for the position
No directional arrows
Perimeter play is impossible
Fairways are very narrow as a result no maintenance in the rough (under statement)

The course was not overall was a mess.
Bunkers were not playable.No sand,not groomed and growing weeds in 95%of them.
If your tee shot was off the fairway,you were hitting off of hard clay.Tree areas were not trimmed of broad leafed weeds.
If the course was more manicured it would be a nice course to suggest.There are better courses to choose from despite what I paid.Mike

rough around the edges

this course could be a real gem if labor was put into some upkeep. Bunkers were totally unplayable, dead spots on fairways greens were great. And put a sign up how to get to the 1st tee box!
