About

Holes 18
Type Public
Style Desert/Links
Par 72
Length 7582 yards
Slope 136
Rating 75.4

There are 27 holes of championship golf at Boulder Creek Golf Club. The holes are divided into three nines that are played in different 18-hole combinations. The Desert Hawk/Eldorado Valley golf course combines the longest and shortest nines. The Desert Hawk nine offers plenty of room with generous greens and wide fairways. Though Eldorado Valley is the shortest, but you would never be able to tell. The nine rewards long drives and there are unobstructed shots from the lush fairways. Water hazards come into play, mostly on the front nine, while the back nine's challenges come from the deep, natural sand bunkers that are strategically positioned along the greens. Throughout the course, golfers will enjoy a scenic and diverse landscape that shifts from desert to verdant meadows accented with colorful wildflowers.

Nice

Nice course, the greens have been plugged a few weeks ago but still rolled nice. Fairways decent. The sand is not good at all. For the money it was a good experience

Pleasant surprise

This was the first time I've played Boulder Creek this year and I was very happy with the conditions. The course is currently in excellent condition. The staff is friendly and helpful and our group thouroughly enjoyed our round.

Good Value.

Nice course and layout. Super windy today so hard to be fair I guess. Good condition and very fast greens with lots of undulations. Carts were a little worn but worked fine. Very nice staff when arriving and leaving. Pace of play seemed a bit slow due to one foursome two groups ahead. No one monitored pace.

Great bunkers and greens, great views!

Visitor from Edmonton, Alberta. Excellent course and service. Weather turned awful and we waited at the turn to see if it would improve. When it didn’t, the Pro shop gave us a 9 hole rain check, good for a year. Thank you !

We will be back to finish the round

Pretty good golf course

Boulder creek is a nice golf course if your on the east side looking for target golf if the drive is the same id suggest Paiute as a better target golf layout for the same price. Practice area does feature a fairway bunker which is something rarely seen.

Nice course

This course is a great course and beautiful to play. The only down is they hold you to the GolfNow tee time booked even when slow and can go a little earlier. Great range and chipping area. This is my favorite place to play. I take family and friends to play here always

Tough course

Nice layout. Need to be a straight driver. Lot of waste areas and a nasty drainage channel running through the course. No rough, so balls would run out to waste areas or fairway bunkers. Greens were bumpy as poa- anna hadn't grown in fully. Need to play a few times to know where the trouble is.

A Fun Day Of Golf

Great hole layouts on both nines played. Spots on some of the greens are still showing the effects of winter. For this time of the year the conditions are more than acceptable. If I do end up in the area again, I’ll definitely return to play at the course.

Cold! But fun!

My wife, son and I went out in the morning about 8:00 am. Cold sucker went off on Coyote Run and coming off hole number one the sun was in our eyes so bad we had three balls in the fairway and couldn’t see them until we were right on them. Greens were very fast and very firm. Couldn’t get anything to hold without a bunch of spin! Fairways were pretty solid as well. Sand traps are definitely the hole guards. I think I managed to find about 75% of them. The sand was better than I’ve seen in most of the courses around Clark county. All in all great course and everythiing on the course will be in good shape in another month. The staff and Pro shop were great. Think I will make this on of my regular courses.

A little wind makes for a chilly round and some lost balls.

My wife, son and I went out at 8:00 am. The first nine was was kinda brutal off the first tee of Coyote run that early we had 3 balls hit and couldn’t find one until we were right on top of it, because of the sun. Course is in pretty good shape and I’m sure will be great in about 1 more month. Greens are running fast. They were hard and we couldn’t get hardly anything to hold unless it was thrown in the air. All in all great round! Just wish the wind would have cooperated!!!!!! Staff and Pro shop were great.
Will play again soon!

Challenging layout

Wide fairways, large undulating greens. Plays over 7000 yards from the tips. Lots of desert right off the fairway. Don't miss the short grass. Windy day played having with keeping it in play. Pace of play was good. Our foursome played in 4 hours using two sets of tees. Greens were a little spotty making them a bit bumpy, but they were green and running true for the most part. Nice well stocked proshop.

Treats hot deal players poorly.

Used hot deal to play today. Treated me as a second class citizen. Kept saying some people paid full price. Not sure why that matters. Not the first time. Same attitude last year as well. Course is great but slow play.

Great course but troubling greens

Of a 3 course golf trip, this was our groups favourite. The most challenging, unique and truest test of golf. Love everything about the course except the greens are in rough shape. Poa is taking over the bent and the mix was like playing plinko. Very bumpy and inconsistent. I understand this is difficult to manage until the poa fully takes over, so this is a warning to those expecting puttable greens. Everything else was fantastic. Loved the variety of holes. Playing his a few times is a requirement to knowing shot placement and strategy.
