Superstition Mountain Golf and Country ClubSuperstition Mountain Golf and Country 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. Recently, the Prospector was honored as one of the Top 100 Residential Courses in the Country by Golfweek for 2009. 

In 1999, Jack Nicklaus teamed with son Jack Jr. to design The Lost Gold course at Superstition Mountain.

This year, the Lost Gold Course was ranked as one of the “Top 10 Private courses in Arizona” by Desert Golf.
