Superstition Mountain Golf & Country Club Makes Progress on Bunker Renovation

August 12, 2017

The Superstition Mountain Golf & Country Club is making headway on its $2 million bunker renovation project.


The private golf course community 30 minutes east of Phoenix is under going a complete rebuild of all its bunkers on both courses, General Manager Mark Gurnow says. Some bunkers are being removed. 


"These new bunkers will provide a world-class playing experience for even the most discerning golfer," Gurnow says. "It is the final piece in creating a really modern golf and club experience at Superstition Mountain. The drainage in the bunkers utilizes state-of-the-art Capillary Concrete and it’s amazing."


The Capillary Concrete is meant to efficiently drain the bunkers from irrigation and rain, while still maintaining proper amounts of moisture for optimal playing quality. Gurnow says none of the new bunkers held any water or washout even with more than 1 inch of rain in less than an hour.


Progress on the project is "excellent," says Gurnow. More than 4 inches of rain in July posed a challenge, but the course renovations are still on track. The first course at Superstition is complete and the second is on track for an overall completion date of Sept. 21.


If you're hoping to play 18 holes at Superstition Mountain before the project's completion date, don't worry. The course is offering golf for its members throughout construction.
