The Boulders South course is one of two 18 hole championship courses at the spectacular 5 star Boulders Resort & Spa so expect top class facilities and service on your arrival.
A feature of the South Course in particular is the backdrop of magnificent pre-historic boulder formations that give the resort it’s name.
The Boulders Club is a semi-private country club for members, resort guests, and daily fee players. Only one of the two 18 hole layouts is available for outside play on any given day so we cannot always guarantee which course you will play until you book.
The South course, featured in this review, is a 6,726 yard, par 71 layout. For the record, the North is 6,811 yards long, par 72. Both courses were designed by Jay Morrish.
