A hidden gem
I've driven by this place hundreds of times, catching glimpses of fairways but not knowing the name of the course or how to get there.
That's the definition of a hidden gem. Boulder Ridge is as beautiful and as good as some of the bigger "name" private clubs I've played in NoCal. It sits on a unique site, built entirely on a ridge overlooking Almaden Valley and Blossom Valley (where I live).
The whole key is playing the slope of the land. Every hole has a high and low side. Miss it on the low side and your ball will bounce into big-time trouble.
The terrain is rugged, lined with huge boulders. Nice swings in elevation add even more drama and scenery. If you get an invite, don't pass it up.
Boulder Ridge view of San Jose
Course is special with a great view of Silicon Valley. It always plays well and the staff is exceptional! You definitely need to hit it straight and long on several holes. Elevations and sloped lies are the biggest challenge. Really a must play in the Bay Area. Gets crowded on the peak weekend times.
