Superstition Mountain, Ariz. – The award-winning, 36-hole Superstition Mountain Golf & Country Club announced today that it will make one golf course each day available for “Member-for-a-Day” starting times through the addition of a new membership plan that allows for daily fee play opportunities. The second course will remain exclusive for permanent member play. Golf course use for the two membership categories will rotate daily between The Prospector and Lost Gold layouts. Until now the prestigious 11 year-old private club, located east of Phoenix at the base of the Superstition Mountains, has been exclusively available to members and their guests.
“We’re excited to introduce Superstition Mountain Golf and Country Club to both local and national golf enthusiasts that appreciate world class Arizona golf at its finest,” said Doc Belitz, Vice President of Operations for OB Sports Golf Management. “Golfers playing Superstition Mountain will experience the incredible conditions and ambiance of one of the nicest private clubs in the entire Southwest. Adding the Member-for-a-Day option gives us the ability to ensure the club’s future, and at the same time showcase our incredible golf courses and clubhouse to prospective members. And with full golf memberships starting at $15,000, there has never been a better time to play or join Superstition Mountain Country Club.”
Starting times are available and current rates will range from $120 to $180, ($90 to $110 for Arizona residents). Starting time reservations can be made by calling the golf shop at 480-983-1411. Membership opportunities are also available with initiation fees starting as low as $15,000 for a full golf membership.
In the current economic climate, the creation of more accessible forms of membership have quickly become an industry-wide trend as clubs look for additional revenue sources outside of member play.
Superstition Mountain Golf Club features two Nicklaus Design golf courses, The Prospector and Lost Gold. The Prospector Golf Course, which opened in 1998, combined the creative skills of Jack Nicklaus and his son Gary. Prospector has been the site of the 2002 Countrywide Tradition tournament and the home of the LPGA Safeway International from 2004 to 2008.
In 1999, Jack Nicklaus teamed with son Jack Jr. to design The Lost Gold course at Superstition Mountain. The links-style course offers generous fairways, slightly smaller greens (compared to The Prospector) and strategic bunker placements.
Superstition Mountain Golf Club has hosted a number of LPGA and Champion’s TOUR events over the past decade and has received numerous industry awards, including Golfweek magazine recently naming the Prospector Golf Course as one of the “Top 100 Residential Courses” in America.
