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.

FANTASTIC

This course was in amazing shape, and the pace of play was unbelievable. As a single, walking, I was about to play in 3 1/2 hours on the north course. This is a must play, and an enjoyable walk if you’re feeling up to it!

Good course. Rude staff

With all of the great courses in the Scottsdale area and the steep price they charge $179 afternoon rate even to resort guests you would think the staff would be nicer. Compare that
to Quintero (Less than $100) a course we played the next day and besides being a great course the staff was fantastic and couldn’t be nicer.
Save your money...play somewhere else.

Great views and layout

We played the south course. Front 9 was camera worthy on every hole. Fantastic views. Must hit fairways. challenging from the blues. Got to see a bit of wildlife too. Great condition for early February. Loved it! Can’t wait to go back.

North course not as nice as South course

We had previously played the South course and absolutely loved it; this time we tried the North, on what was probably the coldest day ever in Arizona.

The overall layout is good and the holes are varied; however, we found the North course lacked the spectacular views of the South; it had less boulders, less elevated tees, less mountain views.

The course conditions were great considering the recent downpours, so Boulders is undoubtedly a top notch facility. We also saw more wildlife than the entire rest of the trip, with several deer, a lynx and a wild boar all showing up during our round.

Is Boulders a good choice of a course to play? Yes. But if you must choose, definitely go with the South course.

Very scenic front nine and great condition

The Boulders South course is a tale of two nines when it comes the scenic value. The front nine is pretty stunning and lives up to its name with boulders all over the course. One of the most impressive views the the first green where you will see an amphitheater of boulders behind the green. The back nine is a little more pedestrian but still somewhat scenic. The course was in incredible condition but sadly it was carry path only. The practice facility was excellent as was the pro shop and restaurant. Playing this course from the correct tees will lead to a fun round as it is fairly forgiving. Hit it where the course tells you to and you’ll have a great time.

Beautiful course views

Had great time playing with 3 Australians who were super guys, I didn’t play great but kept up pace of play and we had a wonderful day, only bad thing was the guy in the pro shop didn’t honor my golf now price, said I owed $5 or $6 more bucks not to be petty but a deals a deal , the day rate was $199 (which was overpriced) and my golf now rate was $140, when I told him I had a coupon he said $140 is the lowest we’ll go which I said that’s fine that is my golf now price, but with tax and fees golf now was 155 and change and he said no we are 160 and change . Again don’t want to sign petty but a big resort like that shouldn’t cry over $5. I spent $16 on coffee and a muffin with tip so I’m not cheap.

Beautiful course

Staff expertly worked the tee sheet to accommodate an additional player and promote perfect pace of play. Front nine greens need more TLC following overseed. Several were in just fair condition.

Great Day

Great course layout with beautiful surroundings. Greens were a little slower than normal and fairways soft from overseed. But good condition overall and fun day of golf. Always enjoy this course.
