Where2Golf says: 

The Boulders Resort (South course): The South course at Boulders Resort offers a fabulous golfing and scenic experience. The thrill of desert golf is wonderfully reflected here in the layout's 18 top-quality holes. While Boulder's North is the resort's original offering, many people believe the South to be the most captivating, with holes that go right up into the higher boulder formations.

The layout's pleasant undulations are home to several elevated teeing areas, as well as fast and true greens. From these elevated platforms you will enjoy wonderfully scenic desert and mountain vistas. During your round you will encounter the signature "Boulder Pile" and also "Rosie's Rock", two of the resort's most recognisable rock formations.

From a golfing standpoint the gently dog-legging par-4 1st sets the scene for a round that will include several lengthy carries onto tightish fairways. Precise approach work is then needed to steer your ball past the ever-tightening rock and desert terrain, and clear the greenside bunker-defences. If you enjoy being challenged and can only play one course on a visit to Scottsdale, then this is arguably the one to play.

Did you know?

All around you at Boulders is the natural open terrain of the Sonoran Desert. While hunting in the desert brush for a wayward shot, golfers may catch a glimpse of a bobcat, rabbits, coyotes, desert quail, lizards or a javelina ("skunk pig"). Some of the boulder formations you'll see during your round at The Boulders pre-date the golf course by a mere 12 million years.
