Slope 142
Rating 72.9

The Boulders Golf Club & Resort complex features two outstanding 18-hole courses. Both courses are very well maintained, and the scenery is incredible. Boulder's South Course is exactly the type of desert course people come to the Phoenix-Scottsdale resort corridor to play. A round of golf on the South kicks off on the par-4 first hole, which measures 421 yards from the blue tees, which is quickly followed by a short par 3, measuring 150 yards from the blue tees. Things get long on the fifth hole, a 545-yard par 5, which is just a warm-up for the 11th hole, a par 5 that measures 601 yards from the blue tees. It doesn't get much easier to finish: The 18th is a par 5 that measures 513 yards from the blue tees.

One of the most beautiful and fun course in the PHX area

A bit of a drive to get here but well worth it. Just a fantastic layout, not super hard but very pretty place and if you play at twilight, it really glows out here and the shadows and colors are great. Warmup area is nice, staff was friendly, 18 holes in 3 hours twilight, even saw a bobcat running about the putting green looking for rabbits. Make the trip and try it out

Disappointed with holes closed

I have played here around 6 times this summer, this the only disappointment. They are letting the course and green conditions go before overseed, and they closed holes 16 and 18, so we only played 16 holes. Golfnow sign up did not warn about closed holes or I may not have registered to play. Pro shop claimed GolfNow should have shown the closed hole situation - but didn’t.

I like the course although they were going through renovations, it was still a pleasure to play, but $14.00 for a 16 oz. Coors Light????, without the tip.

Nice course but not for the price

I played Boulders in January at a price of $360. I walked away having a great experience but thinking "I'd never pay that again for this course." Then this month I played again for $79.

Two of the holes were closed which they didn't tell you until after you booked and it was below in the fine print. People generally don't read the full confirmation emails but I guess that could be my fault. There were also 3 or 4 holes where there was no sand in the bunker - just concrete. It was obvious they were redoing the bunkers.

Arguably my biggest issues were the greens. They were BEAT UP. I mean 3 of them they had new sod laid and it was the pace of the fairway. Just really unimpressed overall.

I'm in love with the big boulder scenery in Carefree but probably won't play there again.

Boulders AZ Golf Course

Excellent course. Every hole is photo for a post card. Tee boxes excellent condition as well fairways and green.
Cart person with drinks made it around several times especially during warmer weather.
I’d recommend anyone traveling to AZ Phoenix area to put this course on their agenda.

Boulders golf course experience.

In my eyes probably one of the best courses to play in the valley.
Absolutely photo taking course in each hole. Tee boxes in excellent condition as well the fairways. The. Inkers we very playable and with the GPS in carts it made the round easier to manage.
I travel to valley regularly and always try and get a round in.

Great discovery

We come play in Arizona around every 3 years since 2009. First time playing this course. What an experience. From the drop bag to the end of the round, all was great.
We will be back.

Good Golf

The course was a challenge but obtainable. We played with another couple who were very helpful. They played the course many times and showed us the way. The fairways were in pretty good condition, considering how hot it was. The greens were a little slow but I understand as it take water to green them up. Overall we really enjoyed the course and will return.

2nd time playing at the Boulders, and we were very lucky to have weather in the 90’s instead of in the 110’s. Course was amazing except holes 10 and 11 were closed for Bunker maintenance, so we’re unable to get a full round in. Other than that, the facilities were amazing and the course in great shape. Highly recommend a stay and play at the Boulders.

Played the course on 9/8/2022. There were two holes under repair, we were told there would be only one. The greens were in poor condition, as there was crabgrass on several of the putting surfaces.

Not bad for the money

I only have 4 of 5 stars due to the greens needing a little extra care. Quite a bumpy for my liking. I was not expecting perfect but I thought they would be a little Better. But other than that this course was well worth the price I paid. It was Monday (Labor Day) so pace of play was a little slow. I booked as a single got paired with another single and the 2-some that was supposed to be with us only wanted to play by themselves. We finished all 18 in 4hrs and 5 mins.
