I have played this course several times over the past few years - it is always a treat. The course, as usual, is in perfect shape. The rangers did a great job of maintaining pace, never had to wait and never felt pressured.

This is a nice course that is very well maintained. Layout is not spectacular but worth playing if the price is under$100. Reminds me of a flatter version of Gold Canyon Dinosaur. Alot of courses in the area that are of the same design style.

We played after three days of rain. The course was in great shape, it has great drainage, so no pools of water on the fairways at all! Lots of sand traps, so brush up on your sand wedge. Staff was very helpful and attentive.

Situated at base of superstition mountains with fabulous views on every hole. Inaccurate shots will trap you in the bunkers but accuracy will reward you with a good score.

The not so good:<br/> -cart path only and we walked more than I do when I walk a course<br/> -driving range was closed<br/> Some holes, there seemed to be 2 possible greens to shoot for<br/> -and of course, it's a bit of a drive<br/> Otherwise, great time!

We played the Lost Gold course and it was transitioning from summer to winter conditions and was still in great shape. Superstition Mountain is going back to a Private Club beginning next year. If you haven't played here it is a MUST play while you still can. Best greens in PHX!

My only criticism was that the range was closed. I arrived early to warm up and was informed at that time the range was closed. An indication that this was the case would have been appreciated ahead of time.

Had a great time playing this course. Unfortunately the putting green and driving range was closed to the public. The members were all set and we sat there watching them warm up.

Once playing, things were awesome and the course was in good shape.

Great course, lots of variety of holes, wide fairways with emphasis on shots into greens. Early Sept conditions with slow but smooth greens. It is a private course so be prepared for some starchy rules.
