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.

Greens were the slowest I have played on this year. Being a stat holiday (Presidents Day) maybe the staff did not cut them?? Otherwise they looked quite nice. Fairways are in decent condition but lots of clover. The kitchen staff on both of our last 2 visits seem really confused about what is available and how to serve it. were told there were a couple things we ordered from the menu that were not available. They also changed the front and back nines order so all the GPS units have to run on the wrong numbers to be on the hole you are actually playing. Quite confusing but again manageable. The 2some ahead of us had a crash at the concrete underpass when they came around the corner and 2 carts were coming the other direction in both lanes one of them in the wrong direction. The one guy had a massive contusion on his forehead and had to quit his round. They did say the club gave them a free replay and a free bag of ice. Crazy bad luck.

Loved the course. Nice young man greeted us at our car with a cart and loaded us up right away. Pro shop staff were great. Course was in great shape. Very picturesque with the mountains in view on every hole. A sign is required for directions to the first hole. You have to drive thru a tunnel but there is not a sign telling you so.

Great course for the money paid. Will definitely play here again. Hopefully soon.

Course conditions have improved greatly over last year when there was a problem with the greens. Course is in great shape. Pace of play was very poor, be prepared for a 5.5 to 6 hr. round. No Marshall’s on the course. At times had 4 groups on the same hole. Need to be much better organized at getting groups started with the first hole tee out of site of the club house with no starter there.

Course needed better maintenence. Ball washes needed on every hole, Some ball washes had no water in unit.

Some areas of golf course had too much water from over watering.

Greens were well maintained.

Sand traps had good sand at only 1 inch thickness and very hard underneath.

Joined to unlimited practice. After two days, me and my two tour playing friends were refunded our money. We were hitting balls and discussing the swing, and were thrown out for coaching, by Maria, the head instructor. Very lame experience. Older folks obviously not comfortable with anyone younger or better, I guess. Very negative experience. Worst ever for me in a lifetime of playing golf.

Mountain Brook is a nice course, in good shape, but way overpriced. The pace of play was brutal with no ranger in sight. I believe they had one last year but must have eliminated that position to save money. The snack bar closes way too early. Very nice people working outside.

Greeted in making lot by cart attendant. He takes your bags. Nice start.

Course in decent shape. Not overpriced today. And I forgot my GPS at home. Drats! 150 markers only on half the holes. No 100 OR 200 yd markers AT ALL! Minimal sprinkler head markers. Now, I know the majority of players have their own GPS, but what's the difficulty w/having the minimum yard markers of 100-150-200?

Need a Marshall to keep up pace of play. The elderly lady on the beverage cart was very very nice. Starter was not too friendly did not explain the course or even where the first hole was located. We started at 12:10 pm we got off at 4:40 pm the Pro shop was closed. We had one drink on the patio and the bar was trying to close. This was a Friday afternoon / evening.

The course was in nice shape but the greens are slow compared to most courses.
