Two captivating 18-hole championship courses designed by Jay Morrish are sculpted into the desert so golfers can tee off from the top of a boulder, look out over fairways framed by ancient saguaros, and catch an occasional glimpse of desert wildlife darting into the rough. (That’s given way to one of the more colorful rules for playing The Boulders: if a coyote picks up your ball and carries it off, you can drop a ball and play it from there.)
Golfers also appreciate the extensive practice facility at The Boulders Club to sharpen their game before or after a round of golf. In addition, the resort offers special vacation packages and golf programs like the innovative Women To The Fore.
The North course is the older of the two courses at The Boulders and features bent grass with spectacular views of Black Mountain as the course meanders through the Boulders community. Both courses are built right into the desert foothills and offer breathtaking panoramas - including stunning boulder formations, striking Sonoran Desert sunsets and natural desert terrain. Keep your eyes open because desert wildlife is often visible during play. Every day, golfers are surprised to see a bobcat, rabbits, coyotes or a javelina while hunting for a wayward shot. In short your experience should be a scenic and natural wonder.
