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.

Our foursome played at 11:37 and I guess because of the heat, we were nearly alone out there. Tees, fairways and greens were in great shape. Greens not as fast as some but nothing to complain about. Richard (carts and starting) is a gem, hang onto that guy. Avoid the bunkers, the only issues on this fine day are the traps, they badly need fresh sand. There was drinking water on the course.

I had an interest in trying this course so I kept an eye out for a hot deal to justify the extra distance I'd be traveling. The course did not disappoint. The course layout was interesting enough, but the real draw is the impressive views of the Superstition Mountains in the background. You get a real sense of how massive they are as you move in their shadow from hole to hole. The one drawback was the condition of the fairway grass. I think this had more to do with the grass being in transition from winter to summer grass, but it was a bit iffy in spots. The greens were all in good shape, though running a bit slow. It took me a while to adjust from a recent round played on very fast greens. All in all, it was a nice course and plan to return.

Mountain Brook was in great shape. It is a moderate course with open fairways and minimal sand and water. The greens were also in good condition. They were a little tricky to read but may be my skill level. Overall if you are an average golfer this is a great course for your money.

A very good warm up course. Only concerns were conditions of back trees tee boxes. These need to be cut just as the other boxes are. Also the greens were rather slow. Is this the usual speed? I'll be back but wanted to mention this.

Lastly please consider including a small bucket a range balls to avoid further costs. I'd rather play$5 more and have it included.

We've played this course for many years. Have always found course to be in good condition with the exception of last year when they had issues with greens. Greens are excellent this year! Pace of play has always been good, pro shop associates are always accommodating along with the starter. Good value for a very good course.

Nice grass everywhere. Greens were slow but in excellent condition. Layout was diverse, interesting, and scenic. My only hesitation was the sandless traps. Actually there was a bit more sand than many East valley courses, but a couple of more inches would allow real shots rather than picking, which often yields slower play.

We really enjoy playing this track and often take friends there when they visit us in the valley. Staff is very friendly and they have the best greens of anywhere we've played this year.

My only criticism I would have is the young man who cleans your clubs after the round. He seemed insulted when I only tipped him $5 to give my wife and my clubs a qwick wipe. Found him to be a bit rude but everything else was Great!

We were met by a very pleasant greeting from the front counter. We started on time and the pace of play was quite reasonable (4 hrs 10 mins). The course is in pretty good shape except we found the greens to be quite slow. Otherwise they were in great shape.

Overall a very pleasant experience and will be back.
