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.

I played this course often in the past & found the course to be in good condition; however, this recent experience in playing Kokopelli was a great DISAPPOINTMENT! The fairways, for the most part, were in terrible shape with many bare spots, plugs from aeration, & huge areas in the middle of some fairways that were bare & i guess being worked on. I now understand why the rate was so low and i would not recommend any of my friends to play this course!

I enjoy this course. Its a good bang for your buck at this time of the year. The sand traps here are usually not fluffy and in peak season pace of play can be frustrating but other than that no complaints. Would recommend and WILL play agin

They should have never sold me a tee time after the start of a tournament. Pace was terrible, course was not in good shape. Sand traps were so hard , that was difficult to even rake them. I did not even finish the round. It took 3hours & 45 mins. to finish 12 Holes !!! Never go back again !!!

I've played this course a lot over the last few years. It was always a decent course for the price but, that's all changed. A few weeks ago I played here and there was no cart service. When we asked, they said she called in sick. So, there's no back up? When I played this weekend, there was a cart girl but, everything else was terrible. The pace was crazy slow. The group in front of us had 5 players and no sense of urgency. That could have been fixed if there was a ranger but, didn't see one all day. The course looked terrible. There's more dirt than grass and puddles of water and mud are everywhere. The sand traps are hard packed and might as well be dirt. Very dissatisfied and won't be playing here anymore.

Course is not in as good a shape as usual. Sand traps were absolutely terrible, more like hard mud traps. No coolers on the carts even though the temp. is 80+? Our cart could barely make it to the next tee, should have changed it. I know about a month ago they said they were getting new carts, obviously that hasn't happened. Kind of disappointing.

Good layout. Could be a super course if they’d plant some grass and put sand in the bunkers. Looks neglected to me.
