Boulders Golf Club
Play one of the most prestigious courses that Arizona has to offer! Boulders Golf Club is voted one of the top courses in the state of Arizona as well as the entire country. Situated in the midst of the Sonoran Desert, Boulders Golf Club is famous for its boulder rock formations that may be seen from either of the courses. The Boulders feature a total of 36 holes of golf on site named North and South.
The North course at Boulders is the original course boasting amazing views of Black Mountain. The course lines the desert foothills and winds through the Boulders community. A target experience, fairways begin wide; however, narrow as you play through. There are many forced carries over widespread desert terrain. Be on the lookout for wild desert animals such as rabbits, coyotes and bobcats that roam the grounds.
The South course at Boulders is most popular because it offers more scenic views than that of the North course. Some of the holes on the South course will take you directly up in front of the famous boulder formations. Boulder Pile and Rosie’s Rock are two of the famous rock formations you will be able to view from this course. High elevation changes and well maintained fairways make this course a scenic and challenging experience.
Scenic Fact: Signature Hole # 5 on the South course illustrates a dim green outlined by a dramatic rock outcropping with mismatched views of the rugged desert.
