Superstition Mountain in Mesa is a first class golf facility that has traditionally been a private country club, and is now open for limited public play with the two courses rotating play
for members and the general public. This is great news for locals and visiting players - as these two designs present some of the most memorable golf experiences in the greater
Phoenix-Scottsdale area. Conditioning from tee to green is maintained meticulously by a team of agronomists and caretakers dedicated to making a round here a memorable
experience. The property has hosted several professional tournaments, including the LPGA Safeway International from 2004-2008, the 2002 Countrywide Tradition (Champions
Tour) and the 2002 Senior Slam.
The gorgeous upscale clubhouse features a well stocked pro shop, restaurant/lounge featuring several areas with outdoor patio seating, plus locker rooms and showers for
members and guests. The practice facilities are very comprehensive beginning with a spacious, targeted grass range with beautiful mountain backdrop, short game with sand
bunker plus putting greens.
Service is also top notch both off course and on. There are rock markers on the cart paths of all par fours and fives at 100, 150 and 200 yards (250 on par fives), and sprinkler
heads on the fairways are measured to the front and center of the green. Tee boxes are also marked. Scorecards have plus or minus measurements for pin placements from the
center of each green.
PROSPECTOR COURSE - the images in this photo are of the Prospector Course.
The Prospector is a Jack Nicklaus/Gary Nicklaus design (with Lyle Anderson) that opened in 1998, and features a rolling desert style layout with spectacular mountain scenery.
The course is well bunkered from fairway to green, with reasonable carries off the tee and lush playing surfaces. Golfers will appreciate hitting from the manicured rough nearly as
much as the fairways. The green complexes are gently raised with mildly undulating putting surfaces framed by mounds and collection areas.
There are 5 sets of tees that play to distances and slopes measuring 7225 yards/135 slope, 6730 yards/130 slope, 6300 yards/124 slope for men and 139 for women, 5735
yards/130 slope for women and 5223 yards with a slope of 121 for ladies hitting from the forward tees. This course is a little shorter and a bit easier to score on than the
challenging Lost Gold layout. Average players will appreciate the combination of challenge and playability.
The Prospector Course was selected by Golf Week as on of the nation's top residential courses. Now that superstition Mountain is semi private - we highly recommend this - in
fact it is a must play for visiting golfers. Call for a tee time - it really does not matter which course is available in the rotation - they are both lush and gorgeous, with spectacular
mountain and desert vistas. For more info, visit our page for the course, with direct link to their website by clicking here.
