Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club

Jack Nicklaus & Lyle Anderson Golf at the Base of Arizona’s Legendary Superstition Mountain Range...

After playing his first round on Prospector,  Jack stated, “This is the finest conditioned course I’ve ever played.”

In all the Southwest, the Superstition Mountains have no rival. Their imposing height and rugged visage form a backdrop that causes you to pause and marvel at nature’s extravagance. When exploring this land, you will walk in the footsteps of ancient Native Americans whose petroglyphs are vivid reminders of the mysterious history that abounds in this beautiful place. Spanish conquistador Coronado passed through this area during the 16th century, searching for the Seven Cities of Cibola. Legends suggest that in the 1880s, Jacob Waltz, the famous “Dutchman,” found Coronado’s elusive gold, but took its location to his death. The Lost Dutchman Mine remains undiscovered.


The real treasures of these mountains today are the magnificent vistas visible from the Superstition Mountain Clubhouse and its two championship golf courses.


Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club is a private, gated community spread over 890 desert landscaped acres in the Sonoran Desert foothills of the Superstition Mountains in Super­­stition Moun­tain, Arizona. The community features 36 holes of private Nicklaus– designed golf, a Clubhouse situated in the heart of the community, a planned Sports Club and variety of inter­esting home options including luxurious villas, custom homes and home sites. When this met­ic­ulously designed distinctive community is completed, more than half of its 890 acres will remain open space.


Since 1982, The Lyle Anderson Company, Inc. of Scottsdale, Arizona has been developing premier golf communities that continue to exceed expectations. Desert Highlands and Desert Mountain in Scottsdale; Las Campanas in Santa Fe, New Mexico; Hokuli‘a on the Kona Coast of Hawaii’s Big Island, and now Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club in Phoenix’s East Valley are a testament to the company’s long-term commitment to sensitive planning, unsurpassed amenities and outstanding golf. Attention to detail and creative development concepts have made The Lyle Anderson Companies one of the world’s leading land developers. In all of the company’s projects, including the Loch Lomand Golf Club in Scotland, development experience, superior maintenance and hands-on management have lead to unparalled facilities that provide premier golf experiences for members, friends and family.


A twenty-plus year relationship between Lyle Anderson and Jack Nicklaus has resulted in the superb courses found at the company developments in the United States and an architect / developer interface capable of flawless execution from design through construction.


The two 18 hole Jack Nicklaus designed championship golf courses, Prospector and Lost Gold, are nestled along the base of the legendary Superstition Mountains. Prospector is the more forgiving of the two courses, with wide fairways and a variety of tees, while the Lost Gold course is playable by all skill levels but features smaller greens and deeper bunkers. The Prospector course, at 7,193 yards, was designed by Jack Nicklaus and his son Gary. The course was the host of the nationally televised 2002 SENIOR PGA’s Major Championship– The Countrywide Tradition. The Club also has made a commitment to organize and operate the finest Junior Golf Program available at any private club. The Juniors play on the Cubby Course, an alternative set of tees, created on the Prospector course with a yardage of 2,839 and a par of 72.


Lost Gold, which plays at 7,351 yards, was designed by Jack Nicklaus and his son Jack Nicklaus II. A desert wash flows through nine of the holes and adds a natural desert experience. The thoughtfully designed greens are Champion Bermuda grass which has proven to be a superior turf.


Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club offers either golf or social memberships for those who are approved by the membership committee. Both memberships include access to the Clubhouse, certainly one of the most beautifully appointed and constructed in the country, and the planned Sports Club. The Clubhouse features food and beverage service in the Restaurant, a private dining room and outdoor dining terraces, men’s and ladies locker rooms, a library with a meeting room and full service golf shop with the latest in equipment and apparel.
