Rating 72.9
Type Resort/Semi-Private
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.

Nice but could be better

Course was great, in fantastic shape! The only thing that could be improved upon is the beverage cart was never around, we played the South course and never saw her, finally on the 8th hole we called to have her come to us and she did 20 mins later. We asked if we would see her again and she said Yes, We Never did!!! 102 degrees out lots of golfers on the course and no beverage cart. We were not very impressed.

Beautiful course

South course scenery was beautiful. The greens were very niice but a little tricky if you did not hit the hole with some speed. The fairways were awful but you could find good grass by moving it a few club lengths. If you are not a purist then you want to play here because the layout and scenery is worth the trip.

Where to play in August in Scottsdale

Course was in excellent condition for August. Tee time was 10:40 and we were off a few minutes early. Just a wonderful experience.

Can’t wait to play it again

I’ve been wanting to play this course for many years. We finally got around to it as an anniversary celebration. The course is challenging. The course is in great shape, enduring sizzling hot Arizona summer weather. Greens are in excellent condition and not overly undulating. I’m ready to make my next tee time!

Staff is excellent

This is a resort course. The staff here is excellent. Every staff member I spoke to was happy, friendly and helpful. They treat you right here. I played the North course. 10-18, then 1-9. The greens were in good shape. Some of the fairways are still in transition and were a little thin. I got grouped with a twosome who donated a large amount of balls to the desert areas. Very scenic views near the rocks or towards the hills.

North did not match with South

Had high expectations, and course conditions filled them. Honestly waited a bit more from course layout. Played South on our previous Phoenix trip, and liked that more.

I should have used scoresaver a bit more.

Boulders North

Have now played the North course 3 times and it has always been very enjoyable. Course is in great shape from tee to green with greens being smooth and medium fast. Staff was very accommodating as the got me and another gentleman off before a group of 12 was to tee off. Nice facilities with a great pro shop. Got a great deal on Golf Now.

Excellent experience at the Boulders

Played the South course yesterday for the first time. What a great golf course! The layout is excellent and the greens were in immaculate shape! You cannot find better greens in the summer months in the Phoenix area! Staff and practice area were great as well. Will definitely be coming back!
