The desert metropolises of Arizona have experienced an influx of people abandoning resorts in California in favor of a landscape that is less prone to wildfires and earthquakes. Scottsdale, a northeastern suburb of Phoenix, has undergone an enormous boom that has seen the construction of new luxury residential developments and, naturally, golf courses. These courses are best in the winter, when the weather is pleasant and rain is almost unheard of; the weather in the summer, on the other hand, is simply too hot for most golfers. Both courses at Boulders Resort & Spa just north of Scottsdale were designed by Jay Morrish, a frequent colleague of Tom Weiskopf, with whom he designed the well received Loch Lomond in Scotland. The North and its sister course offer desert golf the way it was meant to be, where the emerald turf is set amid the gold and tan brush and ground.

One of the original modern desert layouts. The North is the stronger of two course with the South having more memorable holes. South Holes 1-5 are the best stretch of holes. North course holes 4 & 5 have best views of Black Mountain. Playing corridors are a little tighter than the newer North Scottsdale Courses.
