Like most courses in the last week, lot's of water lushed up everything! The greens were in great shape! The fairways were nice and lush/cut a little tight (good thing!) The areas around the greens were a little deeper than usual (sometimes walked right past or over the ball!) And the rough was tournament deep!

The course played very fair!

I enjoy playing this course as it's challenging and for the money there are few better bargains. The pace of play is always poor as they overbook the course and the marshals don't do much to improve it. Best book your tee time expecting a 5 hour round.

This was my first time to play this course. I was very disappointed when I arrived to find out that only the back nine holes where open. This has happened to me at other courses and I have always received a call before my tee time giving me the option to cancel and book some other time.

The front was off limits due to a monsoon the night before, nothing could be done about that, however they had plugged the greens a few days before and putting was a disaster, again that's golf, but give us some heads up when we arrive,

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.
