My son, 11 yrs old, and I played the South Course at the Boulders and had a wonderful time. The course was in perfect condition. The staff were super nice and quite helpful.

This is a true target golf course. If you are spraying the ball, then it is going to be a long day. The summer rates are fantastic ($58 for me and $28 for my son).

In conclusion, the conditions, friendly staff, practice facility, and favorable rates made for an excellent day.

Course was in amazing shape and the greens super soft-held my 3 wood shot and left a ball mark! The course for July, without any rain for months ,was in excellent shape. Enjoyed the the round and will play here again.

The outside service folks seem to run the Place & DEFINATELY do a FINE job ! "Biman"-the lead(?)was accommodating in that My Golf Pal ran TARDY ! He assured no worries & made it feel that way to be sure and made the "smooth move" of gettin' Us out on the back side to enjoy our pace- We play expediently anyway.

The conditions were up to the reputation of this destination layout, the winding through the substantial elevation changes adds plenty of challenge to the round. DEFINATELY enjoyed the trip up there & look forward to returning for the other "postcard" course, THANKS !

You almost feel guilty getting to play such great golf courses for so little when the summer temps kick in here in the Valley, but, we do have to endure the heat; just a great way to do it. Despite the heat, the course conditions are great--fairways are lush and fully greened out, greens are first rate (they do need to aerate in the summer here, so there will be a week + of sanded greens). The course has several blind approaches so it does take some playing to get used to. If you trust your yardages, however, you can navigate the course successfully. I'll be playing this one again and again at these rates.

Course is second to none in terms of views and surrounding beauty. I'm sure course conditions are better in winter or spring but I wasn't expecting brown areas on fairways. Greens still not quite healed from being airated. Layout was good but one hole has tree in middle of fairway 20 yards from green. Quircky in my book. Worth the hour plus drive to play.

The Boulders is one of the best golf courses in Arizona and one of the best courses I've ever played. Even though the greens had been recently aerated and were still quite bumpy and sandy, the course overall was in excellent condition. The scenery is amazing, and the variety of hole layouts is extremely interesting. It is not necessarily a course for beginners, but I would suggest this course to anyone who loves golf and craves a unique golf experience.
