Description: The Boulders is world renowned as one of the finest golf, tennis and spa...
The Boulders is world renowned as one of the finest golf, tennis and spa resorts in the United States, a 2008 Golf Magazine Platinum Medal Award winning resort. Travel and Leisure Golf recently ranked The Boulders as the #7 Golf Resort in the USA for 2006 and #2 Golf Resort in the USA for 2005. Regionally the magazine ranked The Boulders the #1 Golf Resort in the Southwest for 2005 and 2006. The Boulders Club is nestled in the tranquil beauty of the high Sonoran desert and 12-million year old granite boulder formations that dot the landscape. From the ancient Indians to the modern day vacationers who come to bask in the peace of a spectacular natural setting, all have been drawn to the vast serenity of the terrain and the precariously balanced boulders silhouetted against the Sonoran sky.

Summer time rates made this a great place to play!

Living in Phoenix, there are outstanding golf courses to choose from all over the Valley, but being a more frugal golfer, I hadn't played The Boulders until this summer. Watching... read more

We arrived at the valet, and the young man there said: "We'll take your car, when you get out take OUT your ID and credit card and walk up to registration". He didn't even tell us where check-in was located (as the place is undergoing Lobby renovations) so we figured it out ourselves. The casita was great (as usual) ,... More

Living in Phoenix, there are outstanding golf courses to choose from all over the Valley, but being a more frugal golfer, I hadn't played The Boulders until this summer. Watching the rates drop as the temperatures rise lets you play courses you might not normally visit. The Boulders was a great way to spend a July 4th weekend morning. Beautifully... More

My wife and I had a great long weekend at The Boulders Resort. We were there June 13 - 16, 2015. We had great service from the moment we arrived. After check-in we parked our car and were taken by golf cart to our Casita. We had a very spacious, king bedroom casita w/ fireplace (which would be great in... More

Great golf courses. They have two. The south course is the most popular, but the north course is just as scenic.

Who would have thought that a golf course could be built within the hills made of boulders. Have been trying to play here for over 20 years and finally did. This is the place not to miss on a golfing vacation to the area. Clubhouse personnel go out of their way to assist you and are most courteous. The course... More

Challenging play, lots of hazards. Unforgiving should you find yourself off the fairway. The course is stunning....bring a camera, but don't take long for the shot. 18 holes expected in under 4.5 and it's a busy course. Don't be the folks holding up 5 foursomes please.
