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.

Things have changed

I always enjoy this course, but I hadn’t played Kokopelli in over 10 years. The course conditions were not great; there are lots of dry spots/ dead grass and some standing water from leaky sprinklers. Considering the time of year and the weather no reason for this great course to be in less than optimum condition. That said it is still a fun and challenging course and I recommend it.

Great Course

This is a challenging course but fun to play. Only complaint is the sand traps. Full them or maintain them. They are a distraction now.

Not worth $70.00

Fairways ok , Greens interesting very challenging but the bunkers were the worst in have ever seen. On sand just hard cracked clay with weeds and grass taking over all but 2 of the bunks at 9 and 18.
Not worth $70.00 fee will never golf there again.

Can you say poo poo?

A joke of a course. Mud everywhere off the fairways, if not mud there’s dirt. Rough is much too high. Grass clippings around the greens and finally no sand in bunkers. Wouldn’t recommend this place even to my worst enemy!

Buyer beware

Honestly?? Great layout. This course has the potential to be a very good course. But without ownership willing to spend some serious $$ to clean up all the weeds and mud and the so-called sand taps (did not find ANY sand at all anywhere there, except for desert sand), this is not a course worth spending your $$ on. Pay a few $$ more and play a course that will let you enjoy your round, no matter your ability level. Needless to say, we won’t be going back.

We haven’t played here in a while, it was nice to see the course so green. Looks like they have been taken steps to improve.

Nice course

First time player. Course was nice, staff excellent. My disappointment was with the amount of water on the course and the amount of mud just off the fairways. Biggest disappointment was with the sand bunkers. They’re overgrown with weeds, tons of water or mud. To bad as those bunkers if well maintained would make many holes a lot more enjoyable and challenging. Overall, great day and will definitely play there again.

Great staff, sand traps need MAJOR help

I will say the course was backed up however it is that time of year, the sand traps need a lot of help, otherwise for the price general play was good. Will play again.

Disappointed!!!

The grounds were poor, and the pace of play disastrous. Beer cart was nice but NO marshals to keep things moving. Don't people have any respect?
The many sand traps were mostly filled with water or weeds. There seems to be no drainage so the fairways were soggy at best. Not worth the money at any price!
