In their young history, the two Jack Nicklaus-designed courses at Superstition Mountain have rapidly emerged to stand with the icons of Arizona private golf courses. Immaculate fairways and world-renowned greens at the Prospector and Lost Gold Golf Courses win rave reviews from the many professional golfers who play here. The two courses combine for what are truly 36 holes of private golf unlike any in North America.
A links-style AZ golf course, the Lost Gold Course maintains the Superstition Mountain reputation for playability and meticulous conditions. Jack Nicklaus teamed with son Jack Jr. to design this AZ golf course, which opened in 1999. The links-style course offers generous fairways, and it possesses greater shot value than the Prospector Course, due to slightly smaller greens and strategic bunker placements.
The Lost Gold Course was the site of the 2002 Senior Slam, when Fuzzy Zoeller edged Don Pooley by one stroke to win the $300,000 top prize.
