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.

100% poo poo

Arguably the worst course I’ve ever played. Dirt fairways slow greens only paid $8.00 with discount. That’s about all this course is worth. I would be embarrassed to work at this stupid place.

Don’t bothet

Save your money. This course is not in good shape. The fairways have a lot of dead spots. The bunkers are atrocious, hardpan hitting off dirt. I think this course needs to be sold to someone who will take care of it and invest a little money in it. This course has not been good for several years.

Full price golf for bad conditions is not a good combo

The course is basically unkept throughout besides the holes by the roads. Some tee boxes are good some not. Greens were really good for this time of year especially compared to the rest of the course. Play in the weekday afternoons for cheap if you do play here. Not worth the price or the wait for weekend golf.

Poor condition

Although potential exists, course was in poor condition overall. A lot of maintenance needs to happen before I'd consider paying this course again. Best wishes!

Repeat players

Scorecard needs a course map. Hard to know where next hole is. Could use hazard location info. 109 degree day and no water to drink on course and no beverage cart.

Poorly taken care of. Do not waste your money

Worst course I’ve played at. Lack luster customer service, course was in horrible condition. Bunkers rock hard with sitting water in them. Mold and creatures in them. Condition was so bad it looked like parts of the course were going through renovation, but it is not. Money would be best spent elsewhere. Looked like they just gave up on the course.

Course Needs TLC

Really bad conditions. Bare spots all over the course that with the latest rains are mud holes. It’s gone way downhill from a couple of years ago. I won’t be back until it gets a facelift.

Poor Condition

The course used to be great. I hadn’t played it for about 10 years. I always liked the course, but it has gone drastically downhill. There’s no drinking water anywhere on the course even though it’s summer. There was not enough grass either. Way too many bald areas. Pro shop staff sucked to say the least

Stay away!

If I could give it zero stars, I would. I'm an Arcis Prime member and I've never seen a course this bad. The fairway alleys were filled with water and there was standing water and mud literally all over the course. We live on the course, but if I could stay far away from here, I would.

Needs Grass

This course has been in better shape but it needs more grass. Greens are fine but what the heck happened to the fairways?? They are patchy, muddy, and just not good. I won't be back until they fix the fairways.
