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.

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!

We were there for a large group tournament and they treated us very well. They had a buffet lunch for us that had great food and service. The course was in great condition and was very challenging. The staff was very nice and accommodating.

We loved this course!!! Beautiful well run and maintained place. The rock formations are amazingly beautiful as backdrops to great fairways and greens. Restaurant tempts you with a burger picture in your cart......food "porn". Had to have it and it was as good as advertised with the best fries I have had in awhile.

Great resort location with all the desert around you coming to boulders is like visiting the moon. The giant rocks are every where giving a much needed relief from the typical desert look. Food is fantastic, service top shelf an the golf is a bucket list adventure not to be missed.

The course was in very good condition, I'd rate it a 9 of 10. Greens were a little slow compared to what we are used to in the Midwest this time of year, they putted fairly consistent but stimped a 9 at best. The staff there took very good care of us, accommodated our group of 12 very well and... More

I love the golf course at the Boulders resort in Carefree. I have played this course several times and never been less than 100% satisfied. The course was in excellent condition even though it had been very hot recently. The views are spectacular and each had its own identity. I recommend this to anyone looking for a great time playing... More
