About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 6716
Slope 135
Rating 72.1
Type Public
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.

Seems like the course was over watered trying to get the rye grass up to speed.

Course is in pretty good shape, from tee to greens. Bunkers had minimal sand though and the greens were rather hard. Pace of play was average 4:45 considering the Snowbird affect. Saw the Marshall driving around 4 different times, which is good or it could have been slower. Good course at decent price and if your game is off you shall be punished.

Needs work

Play was really slow, and no Marshall to keep things moving. traps were like parking lots. Greens and fairways were in pretty good condition though.

Ridiculous Cart path only rule

In the pro shop it said that carts could be used at 90 degrees. Half way through the round, the Marshall said that it's by cart path only which was ridiculous as it slowed play down considerably. The course was in good condition so why 'cart path only' rule. We will never play a course that abides by that's rule. Might as well walk the course.

Coming along

Overseeding just completed and appears to have taken well. Greens are healthy and are ready to be cut down. Sand traps are very poor. Definitely need a range finder. Dont expect pristine conditions but the price reflects this.

No warning regarding cart path only

Was very careful when booking on golfnow to choose a course that was not on cart path only.. I booked the day before play and learned ony after arriving to the course that cart path only was in effect. My playing partner had to ait out several holes because if it. Disappointed.

Brutal

Upon arriving were told tee times were 15-20 minutes behind, then went to 30, then 45, finally teed off about 55 minutes behind scheduled time. Reason according to office was they didn't know that cart path only rules would affect the pace of play. What!

Ball cleaners had gunk in them which made your ball all full of black crap when you retrieved it. Just awful and it was that way with the majority of cleaners. Told the office after 9 but didn't seem to care.

On the 8th whole we called into the restaurant ordering 3 hot dogs. When we got there after 9 holes they weren't ready and had to cook them from scratch, which took too long as we had to stay in line. Not good because the sign at the 8th hole says to call in and get your stuff ready. Right...

Greens were just horrible, I don't think the course should be open for another 2-3 weeks after over seeding. Greens were almost unplayable.

Not a good experience and we will not go back.

Interesting Layout-Picturesque, Competetive

It rained about 2 inches the day before we played. As a result, the sand traps were ponds. I lost about 1/2 dozen balls between sand trap ponds and hitting overflowing water hazards. Otherwize, the course is very picturesque. Greens are in great shape. Fairways also in great shape. The black tees are especially long. Lots of rolling hills. Best to play with someone who knows the course. The layout is a bit tricky. Distance between some holes is very long - GET A CART!

Refreshment cart came by 3x in the first 6 holes, but then disappeared. Could have used a refill on about hole 13! Bartender was very friendly.
