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.

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.

Overall was a good course to play, challenging, slow, a foursome did not let a twosome play through and should not have been playing off the tees they were playing. Time ran out and did not finish the 18th hole due to darkness, and slow play. Needed a Ranger to move things along. Would come back and play again.

My 3 golf pals and I are all locals, all between 45-65 yrs old, all between 4-7 handicap. We have played here 5 times total and today was the final time.

We play the green tees and have never played here in less than 4.75 hours. Today was 5 hours. The course is very pretty with some interesting holes. Notoriously small greens , which slows play because a missed greens is often an absurd chip. The greenskeeper places pins in the most ridiculous places this slowing play even further. Greens are ok speed/condition wise but when you have people playing that can't break 100 at Western Skies and you stick pins 2-3 paces off every corner you have a 5+ hour round.

The staff has always been very pleasant but waiting on every single shot as groups like up on tee boxes and then having 5-6 pins in a row that require a your pros best shot it sucks the fun out of the day.

As I said we are locals and when the summer hits and revenue is needed we will not return here. Sorry folks, your greens keeper and his pin cutting decisions have single handedly taken future revenue out of your pockets from us.

They decided to put out a 40 person scramble tournament in front of us. 2:40 to play the front, 1hr to play 10-12 and we quit after that. Decided to try and get a drink and bite to eat after our 12 holes (paid for 18 of course) and at 5:30 all the restaurants were closed. Really!!!!!!

The layout is great, no 2 holes are alike except mayby 2 & 16. Each hole has it's own character. The course could be top notch except for the ponds and traps could use some TLC. Pace of play is always a question due to the amount of traffic the course gets on a daily basis.

Superstition Springs is a great course. It's unfortunate that the day I played there was a tournament that made the pace of play 5 hours. I was paired with a gentleman who plays the course regularly. It was great having a "caddie" the first time I played the course. The greens were thick and green, a little bumpy. Some fairways were dry, but enjoyed the roll. The drink cart girl was very friendly and the pro shop staff was very helpful. I will play this course again.
