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.

Had the pleasure of getting in a round of golf while visiting for business. Course was in great shape, although had to keep carts on path due to seeding. Great views, fun, challenging course. I will play again if the opportunity presents itself.

Wonderful staff both in Pro Shop and Starters. Course in great shape but had cart path only due to over seeding. The views were unbelievable and lay out of course great. Our group used 3 different tees and each felt tees matched the golfers. Saw several roadrunner and rabbits. Hope to come back.

Hard to imagine that this place has been rated at one of the top 100 Golf Clubs in America! The course was in terrible condition and by that I mean the greens were un-puttable (more pot marks on than on the surface of the moon), the bunkers were not raked, the ball washers had no water in them, the trash...

Played on 26th September the course was great but my four ball ordered 4 sandwiches on the back nine without asking the cost and when they arrived a few holes later, we were charged $13 each by the buggy woman which was a complete rip off every other course we played charged between $6 & $7 + a bag of...

Amazing landscape, great service, lots of wildlife and very demanding as well. The best golf course we've ever played. This is one of a kind and an unique experience. Keep it up !!

We thoroughly enjoyed golfing at the Boulders. We played 9 holes on the back north course and 9 holes on the front south course and both were in great shape. The course is really pretty with awesome views of the mountains and boulders along with some nice houses. We so enjoyed the course and found it very forgiving when playing... More

To me, this is one of the most aesthetically pleasing golf courses I've ever visited. Every course has 18 holes. Not many paint a picture this memorable. I couldn't tell you what I shot but the scenery is indelibly etched in my head

Booked a casita and loved it! To begin with, the place is simply amazing! The grounds are manicured so perfectly, the staff is just as great and our casita was very comfortable! While the weather was hot, this resort is very cool!
