Rating 69.4
Nestled at the base of the Superstition Mountains, Mountainbrook Golf Club offers a player-friendly course with beautiful views of mountains and desert hills. Given its location, the golf course is mostly flat, making it a nice walk. The layout combines that of a desert course and a mountain course for an interesting variety of holes and challenges. The fairways are relatively wide and some are lined with trees and the fairly large greens are sloped and fast. Sand bunkers are situated throughout the course and two lakes create water hazards that come into play on the back nine. Mountainbrook Golf Club's signature hole is the par-5 16th, which has a dogleg left fairway and a green that is well guarded by bunkers and mounding.

Great time!

We were super surprised we could get a tee time here during Waste management open weekend and glad we did. We played Mountain Brook for the first time and had an excellent time. Course was in great condition. Tee boxes were lush and green and the greens ran true. The pace of play was excellent. We played our round in 4 hours! Staff was friendly and helpful. The guy who checked us in was very friendly even though he was patriot fan.

Need course marshals

The pace of play nearly ruined what could have been a wonderful experience. My playing partner and I had to skip the last three holes because of unacceptably slow play and loss of daylight. I did not see a single marshal on the course for the 4 hours we played. We had to wait 5-7 minutes on average between nearly every shot after the first hole.

New Owners / Wonderful conditions....mostly

This semi desert gem in the East Valley is fantastic on all levels for all abilities minus one aspect......The Tee Boxes are badly chopped up and very uneven after more than two decades of play with no re leveling and re sodding. They are very much needing to bring this aspect to the standard the rest of this course now enjoys. New ownership has done a fantastic job with the entire facility minus this very important area. A most enjoyable venue winter and summer....

New Owners doing great!

Course is a must play when in the Gold Canyon area. Great views help you enjoy your day. You can see that the new owners are working to improve this once worn out golf course. Worth the drive to play a fun course for all abilities.

Beautiful course...

Our only problem was the pace of play. They had a Starter who managed very well, but failed to have a Marshall who kept people moving along. We had 2 foursomes ahead of us who were very slow, & needed to be asked to speed up. Our tee time was at 1:44, & we only completed 16 holes by dark.

Thank you for coming to play. Sunset on the date you played was 5:35pm, so you would have played 16 holes in just under four hours (so about a 4:20 pace). I am sure it seemed slower especially if you were trying to finish the entire round before dark. We are gaining more daylight everyday! Hope to see you again soon!

Much improved

Cold weather must be just what the greens needed because my first round in 2019 was a plesent experience. The greens have really filled in and now are much better. Also, the bunkers now have real fine sand that allows me to get under the ball without fear of blading it into Basha’s parking lot.

Not worth it!

The driving range is nice with new balls.

The food good.

The fairways are patchy and the greens

are slow. Overall the price is high for what you get unless you play late in the day when you have little hope of finishing.

Outside staff is outstanding, inside staff is friendly, except for the pro.

Glad you had a good experience on the range and at The Prospector. We did recently top dress the greens around the date of your round, so that might have attributed to the speed of the greens. They are running much quicker and more true now! We do change our prices so make sure you stay on the lookout for any great deals.

Great day

Good round. Started late do to frost delay. Still only took 4 hours 5 minutes. Sand traps were not a problem. Greens were not the best looking but putted pretty true with decent speed. Overall a good day. Would not pay 60+ dollars to play here but 20 with GolfNow was great
