About

Holes 18
Type Resort/Semi-Private
Style Desert
Par 71
Length 6917 yards
Slope 142
Rating 72.9

The Boulders Golf Club & Resort complex features two outstanding 18-hole courses. Both courses are very well maintained, and the scenery is incredible. Boulder's South Course is exactly the type of desert course people come to the Phoenix-Scottsdale resort corridor to play. A round of golf on the South kicks off on the par-4 first hole, which measures 421 yards from the blue tees, which is quickly followed by a short par 3, measuring 150 yards from the blue tees. Things get long on the fifth hole, a 545-yard par 5, which is just a warm-up for the 11th hole, a par 5 that measures 601 yards from the blue tees. It doesn't get much easier to finish: The 18th is a par 5 that measures 513 yards from the blue tees.

Bouldered over!

"Somewhat challenging" hardly describes the courses played 07/03! Due to normal course maintenance scheduling, we played Back 9 North/Front 9 South, blue/white tee combo. My first time on the South. I can hardly wait to play the South 1-18 in August! D*** that South front 9 was difficult! Some blind tee shots; blind 2nd's; quick greens (9-10 stemp); LONG 3-par holes; holy smokes! The North is always fun to play, but that South! Yup! I'll be back!! I'll bring my brother to punish him! And next time, I'm playing the WHITE tees on the South!

Not a Resort Experience

first start time 6:30 in AZ in June is to late.
Practice range was being mowed so could not warm up.
Putting green was being fertilized so could not put.
Sent Member off 10 with guests off 1. created a log jamb at the turn slowed play as it got hotter.
We were two lower handicap got first off tee time to be paired with higher handicap players as a 4 but because of the member off 10 deal it made my possible 2.5 hour round 4.5 bummer for me i guess. Not sure i'll play there again. I pass 3 golf courses to go to theirs.

Loved this course

My wife and played here while visiting Scottsdale. The course was immaculate, very playable, and reasonably priced via Golf Now. Will definitely play again when we return.

Beautiful course, groomed perfectly

Great resort course-immaculate grounds-keeping and views worth every dollar. Played as a twosome with my wife o the North Course,, and seldom waited to tee off or play the next shot even with a mixed foursome in front of us. Course personnel were friendly and helpful. Would definitely play again when in the Scottsdale AZ area.

Tough Challenge, Amazing track

I played the front of North and South Courses. It was really a challenge as I was playing alone and there are lots of blind shots and LOTS of trouble. I’d recommend playing with someone who knows the course. Greens were aerated, but I can’t complain. Paid $70 for a $250 round. Golfnow gold!!!

The greens were all punched with holes and sanded. They should notify the golfers that the greens are punched I had no idea, I would not of played there had I known the greens were punched.

Second Rate

If you are not a member or a corporate guest you get treated like a second rate citizen. It appears they use the public to fill the tee sheet and don't care if your round is good or bad. They stuck a corporate foursome in between tee times in front of us and it made a 5 hour round. I would not play this course again during peak season.

Expensive but nice desert course

Very nice, expensive course. Sand traps were less than great but course was in top condition. Starter could’ve been more friendly. Not rushed and not slow pace of play. Price charged with more than indicated by golf now ap.

Great Course if Money isn’t an Issue

First and foremost I would like to say the course is a fantastic track. However I do not believe it is worth $300 a round. The condition takes a back seat to no other public course in the area. It is a high-end golfing community and you will have to pay top dollar to play here. My only complaints with the golf course it’s self is They badly need to update their GPS system. I have played $50 rounds of golf where they have a Touch screen GPS in the cart that with show exact layups and pin locations. The ones they currently use are not touch screen and only shows you distances to front, Middle, and back. What they have is “OK” but not for a $300 a round. And on another note your better be hitting the ball straight when you play here. YOU WILL BE PUNISHED IF YOU MISS THE FAIRWAYS BY MUCH! All and all great course and I will look for a deal here in the future m, but hopefully it’s around 125-175$

Not good enough for the price

The boulders at the Boulders course are spectacular unusual scenery. But you are there to play golf. The range was in poor condition, with almost no grass to hit from. I might expect this on a course costing $48, but not one costing $248. The concrete cart paths were in disrepair, again unacceptable for a course at this price. The course was interesting, but not overwhelmingly interesting. The greens were good, but not great.The par 3's were too long from the white tees. 190 yard par 3's are not fair for a white tee golfer playing a course at 6200 yards.

Overpriced and overrated

Played the North course. No boulders, no vistas, nothing interesting whatsoever. Conditions and staff were excellent, but $250 for a course that would be boring in Florida is a complete ripoff.

Beautiful vistas, great course

We played the Boulders north course in just over 4 hours, being paired with someone who plays it regularly. Nice to have a tour guide. Every hole was beautiful, course conditions were great, and we would highly recommend. Expensive, but we felt well worth it

The Boulders South

Really disappointing. Scenery was very nice. Golf was less than stellar. Pace of play was horrible. Marshall was absent. Loudspeakers blaring about some scavenger hunt. Groups of people walking around the course, in front of the boxes when groups were teeing off. Save yourself $275 and play Wickenburg.....
