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.

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!

Just OK

Greens are good fairways were average nothing memorable about any of the holes except for large boulders. Played the back nine of the north and the front of the south the south seemed better. Not really anything special to draw me back.
