Golf courses at Boulders Resort & Spa
Despite being the newer of the two courses at Boulders Resort & Spa, many find the South Course to be more scenic as it plays right up to the giant boulder formations the area is known for. Golfers will be treated to views of the surrounding mountains and native wildlife throughout their round. The luscious fairways provide a contrast to the desert and are narrow, typical for desert-style golf, rewarding precision and accuracy over length.
The older of the two courses at Boulders Resort & Spa, the North Course offers golfers consistent views of the stunning Black Mountain as the course winds through the community. Slightly longer than the South Course at 6959 yards, golfers will experience amazing views of the local desert landscape and natural flora and fauna during their round. In true desert-golf fashion, the fairways are narrow, so precision and strategy are necessary to score well.
