Kokopelli Golf Course
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.

No carts Delayed tee times = unfinished round
Our foursome arrived well in advance of our tee time
Carts were not available so the tee time was delayed over one half hour
Ranger was not cognizant or refused to enforce basic pace of play rules
Two twosomes were sent out back to back in front of us instead of making it a foursome
We only were able to finish 15 holes yet we paid for 18
Will not recommend this course to friends
The greens and fairways were in very good condition. However, the rest of the course needs a lot of work. The sand traps had grass growing in them and they either had no sand in them or were all mud. If you got off the fairway you either in hard pan bare dirt or in mud.
This course is a very nice layout but needs a lot of work to have me come back and play it
The course is in soso condition. The bunkers are full of standing water and no sand. There was standing water in various locations on the fairways. The rough is just that.
The pace of play was slow and waiting at every hole.
Play somewhere else.
Don’t waste your time with this one. Played here a couple years ago and remember it being good value and in good shape. Had it been the way it is now I would not have come back. Course conditions are terrible ! I never care about any of the staff because we all have our bad days but everyone here was friendly enough and attentive to their jobs. The best part of our day however was the blonde that was working in the restaurant.
1st time snowbird
Very nice layout. Played 18 in 3.5 hours. Greens in nice shape except spots of very sandy areas. Sand traps were lacking sand and vary hard. Rough was mostly compacted dirt. Would like to replay when in better shape.
Course was ok the sand traps were hard and vertically unplayable. Otherwise all good. Greens were fine
The course had some target holes with water as the intimidator. There were lots of bare spots. The price was right, staff was courteous, club house was well appointed and four tees offered a wide variety of choices for play.
Fairways and greens are excellent. Traps are terrible, hard as concrete, muddy with no recent rain. Pace of play was terrible, waited on every tee box, 4 hours and 45 minutes. No beverage girl and no marshal.
Sand traps are a disgrace. Fill them in with grass or fix them. Water drainage is poor at best. Losing balls just off the fairway due to the standing water. Shame as the layout of the course is good. Matt
Read the reviews before purchase, this course is in serious trouble.
It hasn't rained here in 14 days yet the traps many of them still have standing water along with collection areas. The other traps are in desperate need of repair, ie drainage and sand and grooming.
the 18 th hole we were dodging balls from the range and practise are where some were taking long shots at the 18 th green instead of the practise green. Bottom line SAVE YOUR MONEY
Poor fairway conditions
This course has narrow fairways that are hilly and undulating. Even a straight drive that lands on the fairway has trouble remaining there as the ball almost always rolls off into a grasslesss rough! Recent rains have left many water filled gullies that although it seems an attempt was made to pump them dry still are present with anew obstacle still in place.....a large deflated hose! The bunkers are either filled with water or are muddy or are hard like a brick. To even suggest they are sand traps would be a joke as they contain very little sand. Tee boxes are uneven in many places and some need repair. There is a bag drop ,but it is a long way from where the cart return is found so be prepared to carry your clubs to your car a far distance when you are finished your round. Did not see a drink cart or any workers on the course trying to improve conditions. Holes one and 18 are beside the driving range and driving range balls litter each hole...some white some yellow.....so you would be wise to use a different coloured ball on each of these holes. This is not a course I could recommend to anyone at its current condition!
Needs lots of work
Had not played this course for awhile like years because of poor conditions. Guess I will not return again for a few years. Although fees were very reasonable after the first two holes we discovered a mud/dirt rough. No sand but mud or dried dirt in traps. Lots of standing water although it has not rained for two weeks. This could be a nice course if owners would put some $$ in it for improvement. Right now I cannot recommend it.
Rake and fluff the sand traps
We have played this course several times over many years and the hills, moguls and water are always a challenge along with very narrow fairways in many spots and lots of hard pack sand to ricochet your ball around, not always forward.
Today the sand traps were so hard from December’s rains that they we unplayable. Rake and fluff up the traps please! Today the handicap was left far behind, a distant memory. Staff was great but I am not going to hurry back to the course.
not in good shape
the bunkers and several fairways were not good. hard packed and weeds
TERRIBLE PLAYING CONDITIONS
5 1/2 HOUR ROUND. BUNKERS HARD AS A ROCK. STANDING WATER IN BUNKERS AND IN ALL LOW AREAS ON THE COURSE. IRRIGATION HOESES LAYING AROUND COURSE. COURSE WAS OVERBOOKED VERY SLOW.
