Overview
More
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.

The Boulders Spa and Spa cafe are among the best in the Valley. Had wonderful healthy and tasty breakfast and lunch. Services included massage and pedicure. Both wonderful! Can't wait to return.

It was really hot, but that worked out to our advantage as nobody was out. The course is in great condition and the pace of play was as fast or slow as you wanted because there was virtually nobody out
