The Lost Gold course is one of two Jack Nicklaus designs at Superstition Mountain, a private club located just east of Phoenix (Nicklaus designed Lost Gold alongside his son, Jackie). Though the fairways are generous, the Lost Gold is a tougher test than the Prospector course, with smaller greens and strategically placed bunkers. The front nine has many parallel fairways separated by bunkers, while the back nine opens up more into the desert, with fantastic views of Superstition Mountain.

Gold Canyon Golf Resort & Spa: Dinosaur Mountain
Just over a half hour east of Scottsdale, the Dinosaur Mountain course at Gold Canyon is a quality public track with some dramatic elevation changes. Numerous tee shots play significantly downhill and provide beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. Interestingly, there are six par 3s on the par-70 layout. Occasionally overlooked due to its distance from Scottsdale, Dinosaur Mountain has all the intriguing qualities of desert golf, making it worth the drive.

Ocotillo Golf Club: White/Gold/Blue
Just south of Scottsdale in Chandler, Ocotillo is a 27-hole public facility that more closely resembles a Florida course than one in the Arizona desert. Water is in play on most of the holes on each nine, as the course plays around lakes and trees in a residential community. The many water hazards weave across many of the fairways, creating plenty of risk-reward decisions. The greens offer ample challenge as well, as some have significant undulation and multiple tiers.

San Marcos Golf Resort
Chandler, AZ
The golf course at San Marcos Golf Resort opened in 1913 and unlike many desert-style courses in Arizona, San Marcos is a tree-lined parkland design. The course, which hosted the 1973 U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur, underwent a multi-million-dollar renovation in 2014 that improved the irrigation system, added new tee boxes and expanded many greens.
