Aerial course videos available online

For the first time, you can fly over all 27 holes above our three courses. Check out the videos below for a bird's-eye view of SaddleBrooke.

The Tucson Nine

Recently renovated in 2011, the Tucson Nine is regarded as the most challenging of the three courses in SaddleBrooke. The course offers stunning views of the Catalina Mountain range from every hole. This nine is highlighted by hole #4, a strong par 4 requiring a tee shot over a pond to a sloping fairway with gorgeous mountain views in the background. The course challenge lies in the deep bunkers which await an errant shot and the length of the course.

The SaddleBrooke Nine

Recently renovated in 2010, the SaddleBrooke Nine offers westward views of spectacular sunsets. This course is characterized not by length but rather by placing a premium on accuracy as is evidence by the signature hole #2 – only 125 yards in length requiring all carry over a pond. The SaddleBrooke Nine is the most requested nine for its fair yet challenging layout.

The Catalina Nine

The newest of all three nines, the Catalina course was recently renovated in 2012. The course features three par 3 holes and plays to a par of 35. The course wanders through natural arroyos and brings the golfer close up views of the Catalina Mountain range. The signature hole #5 is a risk-reward par 5 featuring a second shot which must carry 250 yards to clear the ditch in the fairway. The Catalina Nine offers a wide variety of golf shots and is regarded among residents as the best layout of the three courses.

Rain
The golf courses continued to receive consistent rain throughout this past week. Depending on where you are at around the courses we have received between 4.5" - 5.5" of rain over the past two weeks. With the rain and increased humidity the Bermuda grass is really taking off. The golf maintenance staff will be working hard over the next week to keep up with the mowing. You may encounter piles of grass clippings throughout next week. The maintenance staff will be going through and cleaning them up. Thank you for your patience during this time.

Spots Around the Courses
You may have noticed some bleached looking spots out on the golf courses this week. This is from a post emergent herbicide application for goose and crab grass. The bermuda grass will lose color for a couple of weeks, but will recover. You will notice more spots in the coming weeks as the maintenance team is able to spot treat the infested areas.
