The signature hole #18 is void of water now and looks terrible. If they loose their water they will head downhill quickly. Sad to see.

We had a wonderful day on this golf course. I had family visiting so my bother and myself decided to play a round of golf. Superstition Springs is a beautiful golf course. For us it was the perfect challenge - not to easy but we did not walk away defeated by the course either. The weather was a wonderful AZ "spring" day - warm with a breeze. I would recommend this course in a heart beat.

In 20 years of playing golf, I've never seen such a dysfunctional course.

Booked a 10ish tee time on a Saturday and arrived to find that they had booked a tournament...on a Saturday...and booked a full slate of reservations on top of it. As you can imagine, this proved to be a terrible idea. We went off 30-35 minutes late and played the first three holes in one hour. So, from tee time to finish we can assume that 18 holes would take 6.5 hours. On top of this, the starter, Terry, wasn't only rude, but antagonistic toward the 30 or so golfers hanging around trying to get their round started. Other golfers were bonding over discussions of how much they disliked the guy, so I guess that's the silver lining for the day. Seriously, there's nothing like having a place take your money, disrespect your time and then have their employee be openly hostile to you to instill customer loyalty.

We played three holes and realized that the whole thing was a lost cause. To the pro shop staff's credit, they gave us a full refund without any hesitation and tried to make it up to us as best as they could. I'm sure it was a tough day for them, but they handled it well. However, you can assume that the management is clearly trying to squeeze every last dime out of this place at the expense of the customers.

In terms of conditions, the three holes that I played were pretty beat up. I'm no turf scientist, but I'm guessing it might have to do with sending out twice as many groups as they should have.

Don't play here. It's Phoenix; there are plenty of courses run by people who understand the concepts of space and time and don't double book their course.

The course layout was very enjoyable. This course could be really great if it was in better shape. The greens had a lot of marks on them. The bunkers may have been the worst I have played in a long time, and the sand was soaked so it was basically mud. If they made the greens a little faster and grew the rough out a little more the course could be a lot more challenging which could make it more fun. There are a lot of water hazards on the course that make it challenging, but the whole course is mainly fairway since they cut there rough very short. I would give this course a try again to see if it was in better shape.

had a 1:59 tee time, got to the 1st tee a few minutes early only to find out that we had 4 groups ahead of us. Turns out that they were running a youth tournament, and according to the starter, they were "running about 30 minutes late". We were not informed of this at the pro shop. I went back to the pro shop to get a bucket of range balls (since I now had a 30 minute wait) and they did not seem to be aware of the situation and also didn't seem too concerned about it.

The rest of the day was hideously slow with waits of up to 20 minutes on several holes. We had to watch the youth group ahead of us taking 2-3 minutes to line up putts, standing on the green talking and recording their scores after sinking their putt, taking another 2-3 minutes to clear the green area so that we could finally play. We only got in 16 holes before dark and that took us 5 hrs!

It was 99 degrees and the beverage cart never came by once and they were out of water at several of the watering holes. Lucky I didn't have a heat stroke.

When we made the turn after 9 holes (took 3 hrs), we reported all of this to the pro shop staff, and again, they didn't seem too impressed.

The bunkers were frequently in very poor shape with essentially fine gravel to play out of.

Overall a very disappointing experience. Too bad because it is a beautiful course with very challenging lay out. I might try it again, but it might take a while.

Nice layout of rolling hills. Definitely has some character. That said, they keep it busy with groups every 5-7 minutes. Barely got to cart from range (30 yds from starter) before 2nd call to tee. We hurry a bit more to get to starter and he's nowhere to be seen. So we went to the tee. GPS on cart didn't work until #3 and it was great having the group behind us hit into us while trying to get GPS screen working. All 4 in my group were very dissatisfied with the conditions of the greens. Very rocky and worn in spots. Judging by the old cups marks, the pins on several holes have been mostly the same for weeks. I noted 8+ strokes that were definitely green issues. Spotty and bumpy is poor. For the rate and time of year I expect better. Additionally, $3 for a 12 Oz can of soda? 16 Oz is doable until the extra $$ goes into course care. I won't recommend those greens for the price. Can't imagine what they look like when it gets hot.

To much target golf. Would not recommend for anyone with more than 10-12 handicap.course not very well maintained and greens very small especially on the front nine. Back open up somewhat. Local knowledge would have been helpful as this was our first time playing course.

Interesting course in the desert. There must have been a lot of dirt moved to make the rolling slopes and hills. Seems well maintained. Greens were consistent for the most part.

I would not recommend a person walk the course as it is a long way between green & tee on some holes. I have a bad ankle so walking is out of the question for me. I am almost 81 years old.
