One of the world’s most celebrated hideaways, The Boulders Resort & Spa Scottsdale combines challenging golf, an exceptional spa, and peaceful accommodations with splendid seclusion. Named for the surrounding centuries-old rock formations, the Boulders is situated on 1,300 acres in the lush Sonoran Desert foothills where the landscape perfectly melds with luxurious amenities. Guest Casitas and one-three bedroom Villas, are shaped into the natural terrain with wood-burning fireplaces, spacious baths, and private patios or decks overlooking the dramatic desert landscape.

An inspiring golf experience includes two Jay Morrish-designed championship courses–the Boulders North and Boulders South.  Although each course provides challenges and offers rugged beauty and breathtaking desert panoramas, the South Course winds closer to the renowned boulder formations.  The courses are significantly lush even considering the desert environment.  Although each course is playable and provides generous fairways, greens, and elevation changes, an array of hazards and the desert foliage are used to challenge the skill of golfers.  The Boulders Golf Academy also offers private one-on-one classes led by talented PGA instructors.  The recently completed $4 million golf course multi-focused renovation includes all bunkers and new TifEagle turf, an ultra-dwarf hybrid green that offers improved speed, consistency and playability as well as smooth transitions during seasonal weather changes.

The Boulders Golf Club has a warm feel that includes an extensive merchandise selection, locker rooms, a swimming pool, tennis/pickleball courts, and two restaurants.  The casual Bogey’s offers breakfast and lunch and the Grill Kitchen & Bar features an extensive outdoor terrace with panoramic views. For those that want to be a part of this prestigious golf community, golf memberships are now available to enjoy all the amenities of this world-class resort.

Spa truly raises the bar on the luxury resort spa experience with regionally-inspired treatments, a fitness center, movement studio, yoga studio and unparalleled recreational options that range from desert hikes, mountain biking and rock climbing clinics to horseback rides, hot-air ballooning and desert jeep tours.

But there is something that is even more extraordinary than the natural splendor of the landscape.   Maybe it’s the historical significance of the collection of enormous boulders or the way the stars light up the night sky. Maybe it’s the natural splendor of the dramatic landscape, the friendly wildlife and the serene atmosphere that creates a truly unique destination retreat. These coupled with the manicured golf courses and superb service, this is truly a luxurious oasis for golf, adventure, and relaxation.
