Overpriced

Played several years ago before the back 9 was completed. Was not impressed with the back 9 layout. The 17th hole is a guess where to hit your 2nd shot. Landing area about the size of a popsicle stick
Hole 16 has power lines and guy wires to contend with off the tee. Greens were quite slow. Decent sand in the bunkers. We got to the 10th tee and there were 4 groups. The first group was a six some. Course was sending groups off the back because of an afternoon shotgun event. Course is way over priced for daily play. Will not be back

Beautiful Setting and a Crazy Back Nine

4 stars for green conditions. Starting to grow in for the spring, just were cut, albeit a little high and slow, but has been a rainy week before. Undulations and most slope off in every direction.
Above average to average for fairways. They weren't cut close but smooth.
Tee boxes were just mowed also but left a little to be desired.
Back 9 addition is crazy layout but tough and very cool. Makes it worth driving around finding the teeboxes.
Clubhouse and extras are light, but effective hot dogs and standard beers at the turn.

Nice course in western South Dakota

A Long hitter will have many birdie opportunities. It's a very scenic course at the entrance to the Black Hills. Well maintained fairways and forgiving greens. One of my favorite courses in Western South Dakota.

Nice course but pay attention to the layout

Nice challenging course, pretty views and well maintained. The transitions between a couple of the holes is a bit confusing, first time golfers will wish there were a few more signs pointing the correct directions. On hole 3 you can see the “green” but it’s actually a practice putting green, and the actual green is hidden. Just pay attention to the map on the card and everything will be ok.

Slow play

5 groups of 6-8 people each. 4 hours for 12 holes. Ridiculous!! Good staff but they need to work on groups of 4 every 10 minutes like other courses in the area.

This is the 2nd time we have played this course. It was a terrible experience last year with the staff and how rude they are. So we thought we would try it again this year with hopes it would be better. However they treated us the same. This time they were actually worse. My family and I will never go back there.

Just say no to the back 9!

I have played the front 9 before, but this was my first time on the new back 9. Oh wow, did they make an awful back 9! I can't express this enough. That is the worst 9 holes I've seen in my life. I will bet my house that their pro can't hit par on that back 9! If you want to lose a bunch of golf balls and have no landing areas, then this back 9 is for you. It also looks completely messy and unfinished, like they rushed to get it open. No thanks. I"m never paying to play boulder canyon again.

Uneasy

Three golfers behind us got a little bit in a hurry. One golf ball came within 5 feet from where I was standing. I was not a happy Golfer. Other then that It was a great day and we had a lot of fun.

Back Nine Needs Maturing

The front nine is the original course, and it is in good shape. #7 requires a long enough drive to see the green; otherwise, the second shot is blind due to the fairway taking a 90 degree turn. The back nine is challenging. At this point, the greens are hard and grainy and landing areas require some accuracy. #17 requires a carry of about 220 to reach the fairway from the blue tees, further for the black. You have to be precise to the landing areas. Cart paths at this point are mostly gravel on the back nine, and a bit rough.
