The Boulders is one of those courses you have to play in Phoenix. The desert terrain, plants, houses not on the course and great conditions. We played the challenging south course that rates 135 from the white tees. Bring your A game.

Beautiful setting, magnificent condition...The Boulders is everything one would expect of a desert course. Some target golf, but it's not unreasonable. Each hole sets up as an appropriate challenge.
