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.
The Prospector Golf Course, which opened in 1998, combined the creative skills of Jack Nicklaus and his son Gary. The designers have delivered a community-based course with inspirational vistas, fairways that are wide and friendlly, 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.”
