Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Relaxing trip”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

The view was awesome! Quiet place. Rooms were a little dated. Beds were very comforting. Spa was super relaxing. Help was very attentive.

“Great course”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

Wonderful course worth the expense. One of the nicer courses in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. Friendly staff and good cart lady. Really enjoyed the course. Very challenging. Played North Course.

I had excellent experiences all 3 times I played here. Everything was as it should be, driving range,staff,course,food were all top notch. The price is high end but so is everything about playing here, I will return next year.

“Incredible Views, Great Course (South Course)”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

While quite pricey in season, the South course presents magnificent views and moderately challenging holes. Staff is friendly and club rentals (Nike's) were in reasonably good condition. Excellent driving range with chipping and putting areas. Worth it's ranking among Golf Digest's 100 Courses You Can Play.

We've done the Phoenician & the Royal Palms but have come to the conclusion that when vacationing in the area the Boulders is by far the best , if your looking for a low key high end relaxing experience. While a few miles off the hot spots the Boulders shines at solitude if like ourselves you appreciate a great spot for hanging out in style in your room when not taking in all the scottsdale area has to offer. Returning home from a great dinner , build a fire take in the sounds of the desert, give it up to the comfort of superb linens. Without exception the boulders staff will go the last mile to make your trip an exceptional experience. Welcoming is my best take on the boulders. Golf , whatever. The courses are a nice contrast to the native flora & fauna that makes the Boulders a one of a kind destination experience. Can't comment on the restaurants beyond breakfast on the patio, great service , varied menu. If your looking for a relaxing few days in the desert it might just become your favorite AZ vacation , get away destination. ... Can't wait to go back , can highly recommend units 347 & 348
