Rating 73.0

The East Valley's Superstition Springs Golf Club offers one of Arizona's most testing layouts, measuring over 7,000 yards, with a slope rating of 130. Golf course architect Greg H. Nash designed the course and worked with the landscape already in place to provide the abundant mounding, wide bunkers and good-looking but tough-playing water features.

By the time he had finished with the Superstition Springs Golf Club, Nash had created a golf course that Golfweek called one of America's Best Golf Courses.

After - or before - a round of golf at the Superstition Springs Golf Club, hit up the restaurant for breakfast, lunch or drinks either inside or on the patio, which overlooks the golf course's signature hole, the ninth.

poor conditions

bunkers in bad shape, rough not cut, terrible smell from stagnent water on about 6 holes. we were told not to drive on fairways until we got on the 1st hole,if we had known that we would not have played as it took a lot longer for the round.

No cart driving on course

Horrible

When I booked the tee times they didn’t say they just scalped the course and are oveseeding the following week. Still was $59. I will try again after the overseeing is done and give another review. Just would’ve been nice to be told and not charged the going rate when you don’t even have real greens. Oh well.

Bad Timing

The course had been scalped in preparation for over seeding and I didn’t know that until arriving. The condition of the course was terrible but the layout is very interesting and challenging. You can’t just hit driver on every hole like most courses.

Need to cut the grass

Pace of play was horrible! Grass to be cut and seems like no maintenance needs to be done on the course!

This course sucks due to lack of maintenance of any kind.

I have played this course years ago when it was a shining star. My buddies and I voted unanimously to quit after 9 holes. The traps were just packed mud. We constantly lost balls that we all saw land due to the grossly overgrown grass everywhere. If by chance some grass was mown then the clippings were just left on the ground. The green on # 8 had a pile of sand approximately 1/2 wheel barrow's load just dumped in a heap. This was my most disappointing attempt at a round of golf all year and I play appx 150 rounds per year.
Save your money. Go somewhere else.

Solid

Played here this past weekend. The greens were excellent! The bunkers on the other hand may have been some of the worst I have ever played in. If this course did a bunker renovation and took care of the other area on and around the course this could be a great spot.

You can do better

I used to like this course quite a bit. Haven’t played here in 5+ years due to a move. My revisit today was so so. The greens and fairways are in fine shape. But the rough along the fairways and greens is horrendous. So long and thick you can’t find a decently hit ball. If your ball isn’t on the fairway or green - there’s a 75% chance you wont find it. Not good for the average player of 15 handicap or above. Brutal, not very fun.

Greens are nice but rough is too thick

Greens and fairways ran nice, but rough is 5 “ thick. Lost 5 balls that should have been playable two yards off the fairway

Condition has deteriorated

Used to like coming here but the course is unkempt if you’re even a little off the fairway. Grass clippings all over every hole, garbage around all of the ponds. Lost several balls in plain sight bc of the condition of the course.

Half kept

I was a bit saddened and frustrated with the course conditions. Many of the tee boxes weren’t level, so the ball was either above or below your feet when teeing off. The fairways were pretty decent, but the bunkers were awful. They were either mud or overgrown with grass and weeds. Also, the cart girl called in, so if you didn’t pack/buy enough water before the start, you were SOL. PS 80oz was not enough. The greens weren’t bad, except I think I’m the only person who repaired ball marks that day. Though the staff was friendly, I think the course isn’t worth the price.
