Every golf course goes through a rebellious phase, sprouting water hazards, obnoxious sand traps, or an anchor tattoo on its back nine. Drive down a fickle fairway with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a round of golf, cart rental, and a large bucket of range balls at Mountain Brook Golf Club in Gold Canyon (a $37 value).
Nestled in the fertile foreground of the Superstition Mountains, Mountain Brook Golf Club courts golfers of all skill levels across its picturesque course and 12-acre practice facility. The par 71, 6,620-yard course stands as an emerald oasis peppered with pristine sand bunkers, undulating desert hills, and greens that challenge all players, even those with heat-seeking putter missiles. The included cart dutifully carries its passengers from hole to hole, saving extremities’ energy for tumbling into the course's shimmering lakes to wash off the smell of bogey. Practice your swing before or after the round with a large bucket of balls at the facility's driving range, which features a full-length hitting area and two short-game areas.
Mountain Brook Golf Club
Sculpted in the foreground of the Superstition Mountains, Mountain Brook Golf Club charms golfers with a 6,620-yard course that blankets the arid desert with immaculate fairways and greens. Water hazards, crushed-marble sand traps, and desert wilderness await balls that stray from their path due to an open clubface or the desire to snuggle a cactus.
The club's 12-acre practice facility blasts bogeys off scorecards with a full-length grass-tee driving range, a putting green, and two short-game practice areas where players can rehearse greenside chips, bunker shots, and approaches from as far as 100 yards. Brand-name golf apparel and equipment populates the pro shop, which sells merchandise emblazoned with the Mountain Brook Golf Club logo for those looking to obtain a souvenir from their round without having to adopt a rambunctious tumbleweed.
