Superstition Mountain, always acclaimed as the Desert Mountain of the east Valley by the locals, and located in Gold Canyon, is now healthier than ever and definitely reclaiming its once proud position among the premier golf communities in the nation.

“We’ve had excellent growth in the community with home sales, many new homes built as well as growth in new memberships,” stated Gene Blum, General Manager of Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club.

The 870-acre master planned community, 25 minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor, sits at the foot of the magnificent Superstition Mountain Range. With an exclusive membership, choice home sites and stunning mountain views, it is revered as one of “the” places to live in the Phoenix area.

Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club offers spectacular golf in a truly dramatic old world setting. The prestigious club boasts two Nicklaus designed courses (Prospector and Lost Gold) with impeccable conditions, highlighted by jaw-dropping views, a spectacular 50,000 sq ft. clubhouse and a fully appointed sports club, which together with many indoor and outdoor recreational pursuits, invites you to enjoy a fulfilling and rich resort experience.

Ranked as one of America’s 100 Premier Properties by Links Magazine and decorated with “Top 100” accolades from Golfweek and Golfworld, Superstition Mountain has been honored to host numerous major LPGA and Champions Tour Tournaments. As a host venue to the LPGA Safeway International, The Countrywide Tradition, and the Senior Slam, Superstition Mountain has hosted some of the games greatest including Jack Nicklaus, Curtis Strange, Tom Kite, Hale Irwin, Annika Sorenstam and Lorena Ochoa to name only a few.

The links-style Lost Gold course, site of a Champions Tour major in 2002, The Tradition, weaves through magnificent desert terrain once explored by conquistadors in search of the Cities of Cibola. The back nine opens out into the desert where the view of the mountains gets even more commanding. From the tips, this par 72 is 7,351 yards with a rating/slope of 70.4/140.

The Prospector Golf Course, which opened in 1998, delivered a community-based course with inspirational vistas, fairways that are wide and friendly, and green speeds that are faster than at some major tournaments. This Nicklaus course has been the site of the 2002 Countrywide Tradition tournament and the home of the LPGA Safeway International from 2004 to 2008. And recently, the Prospector Golf Course was selected by Golfweek magazine as one of the “Top 100 Residential Courses.” The par 72, plays 7,225 yards from the tips with a rating/slope of 73.4/135.

Tour pros have been profuse in their praise. “Of all of the majors around the world that I have played in, these are the finest playing surfaces I have played on,” said Tom Weiskopf. Chimed in Ben Crenshaw, “These greens are as good, if not better than any I have ever played.”

Add in a 12-acre practice facility, one-acre putting green, and conditions that are always impeccable, and you have a golf experience that measures up to the best anywhere and at anytime.

The luxurious men’s and women’s locker rooms are housed in the 50,000-square-foot clubhouse, which was designed to resemble an old Tuscan hilltop village. At the Sports Club, members also enjoy tennis, basketball and swimming, in addition to a well-equipped fitness center.
