Course Review - Superstition Springs GC

Named in honor of the legendary mountain range a few miles east, Superstition Springs offers an escape from the harsh environment of both city and desert in a setting reminiscent of golf in the tropics. Favored by locals as a player’s course, this Greg Nash design, built in 1986 offers a challenging and traditionally styled change of pace. The feel is decidedly non-desert. Palm and willow trees, lakes, creeks and a maze of sand bunkers are eager to penalize errant shots. Low scores are usually the result of finesse more than force. Superstition Springs favors a strategic approach to each hole that calls on inventive shot-making rather than brute force. Along with water coming into play on 12 of the holes, there are rolling fairways which do not yield too many flat lies. Superstition Springs is the regional qualifying site for the PGA tour.

The signature hole the 9 th hole. This 425 yard, Par 4, can play some serious mind games with the golfer. The fairway is a dog leg left, but there is 350 yards of water on the left. This hole offers a true test of risk/reward because the golfer must decide from the tee how much water to try to carry. It is a fantastic finishing hole to the front nine.
