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.

We played the North Course, which is supposed to be a little easier than the South. Many tee shots require a carry over desert scrub to reach the fairway, though the distances required are generally 150-yards or less. A lot of strategy is needed to provide good sight lines to the greens and avoid difficult shots over bunkers. Keep it... More

Played this for the first time today. I played with my 11 year old son and the pro shop was nice and give me about a $50 discount from What I was quoted. Still pretty expensive. I thought the fairways, rough , tee boxes were all in excellent shape. The greens rolled well but did have a lot of divots.... More

The course has challenging holes and is very well manicured. The first few holes in particular are especially beautiful with giant boulder formations. If you are an avid golfer, this is one of those courses that you should play at least once in your life.

Fantastic. He gave me only a couple of things to think about for long and short game. Actionable! I was immediately able to use the techniques to hit the ball and chip the ball better. There were two other people in my group and I noticed that, rather than change their swings, he gave them a couple of ideas. The... More

Played the North Course - really enjoyed the course conditions and incredible views. We had such a good time that we booked a tee time to play the South Course. It's expensive, but the conditions of the course are worth it. Lots of wildlife, including mule deer and a bobcat!

Yes, I am sad to say that I have to agree with the last couple of reviewers. The Green's on the North Course were Fuzzy, bumpy and full of unrepaired ball-marks. The fairways were slow, but the "rough" was firm and fast. On two holes, the greens-keepers were repairing divots in the middle of the fairway and not paying attention... More

Traveled out here from Boston with 5 others to golf in AZ. Heard a lot about the course from reviews and thought it would be a good choice. BOY WERE WE WRONG. Overpriced at $210 for a weekday (Thu) round. Arrived to find the Locker room was closed so we had to get changed in a stall. Course we played... More
