Superstition Mountain Country Club

By • Jul 8th, 2009

Superstition Mountain GolfOne of the fastest growing golf communities in the west, Superstition Mountain Country Club is highly acclaimed as one of the top rated golf communities in the United States.  What makes it so distinctive and desired you ask?  Well the property has many unique features to it with 17 villages styled out with European courtyards and its 50,000 square foot clubhouse that leaves you with the feeling of being in Tucsany.  The community is designed with residential interaction which sets it apart from other golf communities.

The Country Club features two distinct 18 hole championship golf courses, the Prospector course and the Lost Gold Course.  Both being designed by Jack Nicklaus, the Prospector which opened in 1998, was also the creation of his son Gary.  The course features wide fairways and very fast greens.  Prospector was also named by Golf Week Magazine as one of the “Top 100 Residential Courses.”  Both courses are noted for their immaculate fairways and world renowned greens.

The Lost Gold Course is more of a links style track that demands the golfer’s attention.  Fairways are generous but the greens or more target style and bunker placement on this course is very strategic. This Arizona golf course maintains the name of the mysterious Lost Dutchman’s Gold Mine that is hidden in the mountain backdrop and today is still a mystery.
