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.

Greens were very wet, shaggy, slow and bumpy, rest of the course was pretty neat up as well.

Pace of play was terrible, we only seen the ranger once. Beverage cart attendant (Reagan) was awesome, bag drop attendants were good, no food available in clubhouse after the round.

They start you off with a lush fairway . That's the last until # 9 when you come back to the club house. Same thing on 10 and 18. The rest the course is a basic muni. Some interesting holes, water and the usual trouble. Balls roll for ever and the greens were reliable. The place gets alota play so be patient. We waited on every shot. Every shot. Every shot. 5 hrs. Tucked pins like nobodies business. Glad I played it but there others that have value.

Management here thinks they're something special, but make very little effort to cater to their clientele.

List of negatives...

-1:08 tee time had to wait for cart. They don't have enough. Embarrassing.

-Rocks in bunkers

-Grenside bunkers need more sand; "packed."

-Fairway bunkers too "fluffy."

-Bunkers on 5 are moon craters

-Greens bumpy

-Always inconsistent condition here. You can never count on them being in top shape. Floods easy.

- Pace of play = 4:45 today. Yikes!

-Well overpriced!

Positives...

-Friendly/Attentive Starter

-Bag Drop Attendants on the ball

Every time we come here we have a delay at the outset as "there are no carts"...the staff seem to be running their feet off to get things going but fact is They are always over booked!

Tee times are too close together. We waited on every hole and our round took about 5 hr.

This is not a long course so you really can't tee off til the group ahead is near the green.We felt we were on their heels and were always on the next tee before they got to tee off and it still took 5+ hr.

Course itself is in good shape. Lots of grain on the greens. Staff are friendly and apologetic .I'm sure they get tired of explaining why people don't get in 18 when they tee off at 1 pm!!

We were informed on arrival that they were out of golf carts and were waiting for some to arrive back from the course. In my thirty years of golfing I’ve never heard of a course running out of carts. Once we finally got a cart in, it was about thirty minutes after our scheduled tee time so we weren’t able to finish the round before it got dark. And the carts we did get were in poor repair. One of the carts had half the power of the other so we had trouble keeping up, and the GPS didn’t work in the other cart. The course marshal seemed stressed about the situation and was pretty snappy with several people. Once on the course the conditions were beautiful but I feel it was overbooked also which contributed to the backlog

The course isn't the problem it's the staff and orginization of how everything was conducted. We were 45 minutes early for our tee time. After hitting balls on the range which was in mediocre condition the staff informed us they were a few tee times behind and by a few I mean a 30 minute wait. Which brings me to my next point which is my biggest complaint is the waiting. Waiting literally 15 sometimes 20 minutes per shot is not a way to enjoy a round of golf. I've given this course a few tries and it's led to nothing but poor experiences. Will not be taking my money here again.

Played here a few years back and did not have a good experience. Today much improved. The course is in much better shape. Layout is good and challenging. Greens a bit rough but pallets late in the day. Pace ok Will play again as it is a good test for a low handicapper. The improvements just need to keep happening. Good value for $50. Is not worth paying $80.

Too much goose droppimgs around the course.

Bunkers need sand to be packed, way too deep but just in some spots, in consistant.

Fair value for your money.

The course is a tough challenge. The course features lots of mounding, traps, and water. However, that being said, you will feel pretty good regarding your game if you play this course well. Keep it in the short grass. The carts feature GPS which is very helpful.

I cannot say enough about how polite, professional, and friendly the staff were. The young people that worked the bag drop and carts were great. This is a fun and challenging course.

The course has a good layout with some challenging holes. But the maintenance is below average. The traps had little sand. One hole had a small dirt mound in front of the green. Some ball washers were dry and didn’t have a towel.

Booking anywhere near two o'clock means not finishing 18. And no food after the round cause they button up by 530. The course is challenging though not long. Nice practice facility and gps on the carts is a bonus that most courses do not have. Good track for mid to low mid handicapper. Higher handicappers will find it tough. One par 5 is 500 yards from the forward tees and most greens are protected by bunkers, though the sand is pluckable.
