The Lost Gold Course at Superstition Mountain Club stays true to the club's name with a layout that snakes across the desert landscape of the Superstition Mountains. It is one of two golf courses at the club designed by Jack Nicklaus and his sons, the other being the harmoniously named Prospector Course. Both golf courses have the signature risk-and-reward design that is a Nicklaus trademark. The Lost Gold Course has strategic bunker placements and smaller greens of the two courses, giving it a higher shot value. The links-style design features generous fairways and water hazards that come into play on a few holes.

Outstanding Course

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.

Nice track

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.

Great views, beautifully kept course

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.
