The East Valley's Superstition Springs Golf Club offers one of Arizona's most testing layouts, measuring over 7,000 yards, with a slope rating of 130. Golf course architect Greg H. Nash designed the course and worked with the landscape already in place to provide the abundant mounding, wide bunkers and good-looking but tough-playing water features.

By the time he had finished with the Superstition Springs Golf Club, Nash had created a golf course that Golfweek called one of America's Best Golf Courses.

After - or before - a round of golf at the Superstition Springs Golf Club, hit up the restaurant for breakfast, lunch or drinks either inside or on the patio, which overlooks the golf course's signature hole, the ninth.

Lot of lakes have dried up, Lot of hardpan & weeds

in the fairways so good shots go punished. Been playing here for several years now and besides the greens, this is the worst I’ve seen it. Possible sprinkler issues and a dry summer will do that. I wouldn’t play here again until post-oversees.

This time of year, you don’t ask for much, but a quick pace of play and good greens. Superstition Springs has both. Good course for a good price.

First time playing the course and enjoyed it very much. Not a lot of play on this day which made it even nicer, for me at least. I rated conditions average only because we are at seasonal change over and they are in process of punching fairways and overseeding. Greens were very good.

Will play this course many more times.

Course has tremendousl potential but unfortunately maintenance seems to be lacking. I understand it’s off season but you should at least try to maintain some type of structure. Just go help yourself do whatever. Cmon man. Get some discipline. Run your business don’t let it run you. Too nice a layout to let it go to crap.. Needs better management.

My first time playing this course. I found it very challenging. Fairways needed more grass, but greens were fine. Water levels in ponds were low, thank God, or I would have donated more balls. If you are a first timer like me, play with someone who knows the course. You need to know when to lay up.

this used to be a very good golf course in fact once had P.G.A. Tour qualifying there,good news...greens ,"the"fairways in good shape,now the bad,bunkers on the front need help and raking all of the lakes on the front side are almost dry now in fact the lake on "9" is now covered in wild flowers,really takes away from the course,had a "HUGE" back up on the 15th hole,long par 3 had 5 groups waiting to play it,plus no marshall was seen at all that day,needless to say will not go back and play it again ever,unless the conditions change for the better

Sorry to hear about your experience. #9 is in the midst of a capital improvement project. The former lake was not restored due to enviromental and financial concerns. It was purely an aesthetic (non-irrigation) lake so we are turning it into a natural desert landscape. It was cleaned out, reshaped with added boulders and then hydroseeded with natural wildflowers and grasses. It is only about 20% grown in. We anticipate full growth towards the end of the year. You are correct that it is not the same but when it is complete it will still be a challenging hole with natural beauty. As for the other lakes, we are in a flood plain and those concerns are being addressed as well. Trust that we continue to work on the course (bunkers and more) and Arcis Golf is committed to improvement on every level. Pace of play is a top priority for us and we will continue to work on it. I am a golfer myself so I can understand how you feel.
