Boulder Pointe is a great facility. All 27 holes are designed very well with great variety on all levels of par. Each Nine brings its own unique characteristics that are signified by their names (Dunes/Bluffs/Peaks). Any routing is a good test of golf. Course plays very fair from any set of tees, with the back tees being a good challenge if you are a single digit handicap. Highly Recommend

My threesome played at Boulder Pointe and we played The Bluffs and The Peaks from the back tees. From the three of us I am the shortest hitter and shot an 83. The other guys shat an 75 and 84 I believe. We are fast players and finished 18 holes in about 3 hours. Being decent players we didn't spend much time looking for wayward balls as this is the reason I believe that slow the game down. Boulder Pointe has a reputation of being one of the Premier golf courses and that is exactly what we found. Pristine fairways, Beautifully cut greens, and Great scenery. We felt like we were in one of the great golf courses in the North of Michigan with many hills and valleys and some blind drives.

As we play courses in the middle of the pack of green fees this was an opportunity to play a top of the line golf course and we enjoyed it tremendously. We are definitely going back and our friends are well aware of the Boulder Pointe Gold Course.

This course was in beautiful condition. It's a great layout, with a good mix of tough and easy holes. I played from the tips, and there were a few 450+ par fours that can play tough. The par fives are very scoreable, and the threes have water to negotiate. The only negative I could say, was that the greens could be a little faster. I was first off in the morning and it had rained the day before, so that may have been a reason.

Had not played the peaks in years . Just the way they rotated that I had not. Love it. Dunes are nice and so are the Bluffs but the Peaks will keep me coming back. Also the staff does not treat "golfnow" guest like they are second class golfers. Kudos to you all.

Boulder point has been and always will be one of my favorite tracks.

The course is very forgiving with generous fairways and large greens. The course was in excellent shape for as dry as conditions have been here. The greens had nary a ball mark so cuddos to all people who fix their ball marks.The toughest part was reading the greens a lot of straight putts when you thought there was break, would highly recommend playing here if you haven't.

By far my favorite public course to play in Michigan! They have 3 different 9 hole courses, all very BEAUTIFUL. The peaks would be the best 9 to play if your a fan of the water views. Course is always in tip top shape. I usually spend at least half of my golfing days in the summer at this course.

I like Boulder Pointe. I don't always score well there but that is not the course's fault. It's a beautiful track through a subdivision. It has everything you want for a fun and challenging round. Most of the fairways offer spacious landing areas. The greens roll well with good speed. I believe anyone that plays there will have a wonderful experience.
