The Boulders

The Boulders is a master planned community located in Carefree, Arizona, just north of Scottsdale. The spectacular scenery of this area is unmatched anywhere else in the Sonoran Desert, thanks to 12 million year old granite boulder formations that tower over the landscape. 12 distinct communities contain elegant homes and villas that are unobtrusively placed to blend into the background, rather than distract from it.  Most home sites have views of either mountains or greens. The 2 championship golf courses were designed by Jay Morrish, and are both rated among top 25 courses in Arizona.

Membership in the Boulders Country Club comes with a long list of luxurious amenities.  Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the golf courses, pro shop, driving range, putting greens, and chipping and bunker areas to practice in.  Tennis lovers will want to spend time in The Tennis Garden.  It offers 8 different courts, weekly clinics, personal instructions, tennis social events, and its own pro shop.  When it’s time to relax, homeowners will want to visit the Golden Door Spa.  It is a 33,000 square foot retreat featuring waterfalls, gardens, native plants, and babbling brooks.  The Spa features treatment rooms, a Pilates studio, tea room, salon, steam room, sauna, Japanese bath, and a swimming pool.  Finally, all members can take advantage of the Club’s excellent fitness center, guided outdoor activities, lap pool, and whirlpool.
