Nestled among 12-million-year-old boulders in the scenic desert foothills near Scottsdale, Arizona, Boulders Golf Club & Resort is one of the country's most prestigious resort destinations. The North golf course at Boulders plays big brother to the South Course, and offers bentgrass and marvelous views of the Black Mountain, as the course winds through the community of Boulders. Both golf courses spring from the desert foothills and feature take-your-breath-away panoramic vistas -- among those of spectacular formations of boulders, stunning Sonora sunsets and indigenous terrain.

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.

Wonderful round of golf in a beautiful setting!

The outside staff delivered best customer service ever! They took great care in accommodating us with a perfect pairing as some last minute changes were required. We were very pleased with the day. Mikie in Bar and Grill provided friendly and efficient service. She wanted our order to be perfect. Food was delicious.
