This course was very different from the other 6 we played. The scenery is really cool and makes you feel like your a flinstone. It was the shortest course we played (7000) but was still challenging enough off the tee and around the greens. Course was in GREAT shape and would recommend any skill level to play this one as it has like 7 tee boxes for all skill levels

View of the boulders were spectacular. Fairways were in good consition but the rough was dried out which made the course a ball eater. A bit pricey for the conditions as a result. We learned that the course did not overseed in the fall which probably affected the rough and other parts of the course. Nonetheless an enjoyable round.

We got a $65 rate, a steal for this course. We had an excellent lunch before the round. Pace was right at 4 hours. Course was in great shape except the greens were bumpy and a little shaggy as it was the end of the day. I’d love to play this course again.

Playing the Boulders is like stepping back to Bedrock with the Flintstones! Incredible beauty that has been thousands of years in the making. The staff was over the top nice. My wife road along and they treated her as a player and welcomed her and thanked her for coming along. I'd recommend it for everyone's bucket list.

Nice tract, beautiful views, greens were quick but held approach shots well. Shot placement is key and greens can be tough to read. Even saw some wild pigs. Only downside was cart paths only.

Incredible views, great layout, awesome greens. Played blue tees, course is tight and tough to decide on shot to hit at times due to lack of GPS on carts. Otherwise first rate track wanted to go right back out and play it again now that I have an idea what shot is called for knowing the course a little better. If I hit lotto this is the club I would join. Top two of golf courses I have played in valley in 23 years playing here.

This is a very picturesque course. Play was around 4.5 hours, it backed up the last 5 or 6 holes. The greens were fair and ran true. The greens are very well bunkered , some very deep. Entering can be costly. A tough course for a high handicapper, not for the distance , but due to all the bunkering. However the landscape and scenery is worth a visit.

Great course. Found it to be fairly challenging. Beautiful course. Well maintained. Grass was solid.

Pace of play was good. Cart path only at the time we played maybe slowed things down a bit. Would recommend to anyone who could afford it.

I've heard a lot about this course, up there with the best in the valley. It was beautiful as far as landscape, which is to be expected in the north valley area. The course was in terrible shape, however. We started off the 10th and the fairways and greens were brown. The rough was no better. We only paid $94 a piece which would have been a good deal if the course was in decent shape.

It was only myself and a friend. We are in our high 20s early 30s. The group ahead of us was only two people, yet for some reason we were paired with another group. It was an early afternoon tee time, so we assumed any extremely serious golfers would have been off in the morning. It was a couple well into their 70s. I wouldn't normally care, but the fact that the group ahead of us was a twosome made us wonder why we were paired at all. Aside from golf, we had nothing in common with this couple that we were paired with and it was a shame. I can't say that the course should ask for ages beforehand, but there's no way the starter thought that it was a good pairing, especially considering how slow the course was at this point.

All in all, a disappointing day that did not allow for us to enjoy ourselves on a golf course because of an avoidable situation.
