RED FLAGS ON THE GOLF COURSE UPDATE: 

Recently, we have been reviewing the use of Red Flags and have found that we now have a very large number of flags that members have requested and received. There are approximately 375 flags currently issued. This is beginning to be a challenge to maintain optimal turf conditions. As a result, we are embarking upon an on-going review of the Red Flag issuance and compliance to the policy. We will be asking our Starters/Rangers to review compliance to this policy.

We will require all holders to sign a new/revised document that encompasses the rules and procedures (some of which have changed slightly.) When the database is completed, each Red Flag holder will be designated by an RF in the Chelsea system.

If you have a Red Flag, we ask that you come into the Pro Shop and please sign a new compliance form that outlines the rules and guidelines for the use of carts that have a Red Flag.

*When you arrive in the Pro Shop to fill out your Red Flag form, please be prompt and fill out your form and place it in Box with "RED FLAG FORMS" displayed on the front. 


NICE SHOT HOLE-IN-ONE!!

Mr. Larry Campbell made a hole-in-one on February 28th, 2019.  It was his 3rd hole-in-one he has made!!  The shot happened on Catalina course hole #3, from 145 yards out using a 7 iron. The shot was witnessed by Tom Herrmann, Steve Bellacqua & Marvin Swafford.  Nice Shot Larry!

2019 HOLE-IN-ONE CLUB REGISTRATION NOW AVAILABLE

Be sure to fill out your SaddleBrooke One "Hole-in-One Club" application, pay your fee and submit it to the Pro Shop.   $40 per entry form (forms available in golf shop)

Membership gets you two shots and the end of season Hole-in- One Shootout!  Every member of the Hole-in-One Club that makes a hole-in-one gets THREE additional shots at the shootout & will be paid out before the shootout begins for making a hole-in-one during the season. 

**ALL MEMBERS WHO WERE PART OF THE HOLE-IN-ONE CLUB IN 2017-18 WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE PLACED IN THE CLUB FOR THE UPCOMING SEASON** ( If you do not want to be a member of the Hole-in-One Club please email the Pro Shop before the deadline of March 1, 2019)


REMEMBER & A REMINDER - 

SaddleBrooke Golfers:  Please remember to have all members of your group arrive for your tee time at least 20 MINUTES before your scheduled tee time and then check in with your Starter.  All players must check in with the Starter, regardless of membership type. 

If golfers fail to check in with the Starter (at the discretion of the Starter) other tee times who are checked in and waiting will be given the priority to tee off first while you wait for other players in your party, in order to maintain proper pace of play policy. 


*CHELSEA RESERVATION AND MAKING TEE TIME REQUEST REMINDERS - 

Recently, as well as in the past, we have had members "gaming" the Chelsea reservation system by putting in "fake" names -meaning names of players they know in advance are NOT going to be a part of their golfing group, and then removing that name, a day before or on the day of play; OR TELLING THE GOLF SHOP UPON CHECK IN THAT PARTICULAR PLAYER IS A "CANCEL".

When this is done, it affects everyone, it is also done to avoid others getting a better spot to play and it is keeping potential revenue from being collected by the Club.  Please refrain from doing this.  Any questions please visit the golf shop or Head Professional Troy Jewkes for clarification.  Thank you for your support and understanding.

Arial 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.

Additional Course Marking Changes Have Been Made to Catalina Course

The USGA and the R&A have introduced the most comprehensive revision to the rules of golf since 1984.  The SaddleBrooke One Golf Committee and Management have approved additional changes to the golf course markings based on the new rules of golf.  These changes have been made to improve pace of play and ensure golfer safety. 

The following change has been made: 


Additional Penalty Areas - Will be marked with a red stakes like other Penalty Areas.  Penalty areas will be added to improve pace of play and remove some steep slopes and difficult desert areas from play.

Locations:

  • Catalina 3/4/9:  Beginning on the right of Catalina #3 Green, the perimeter of the desert area extending along the right side of Catalina #9 fairway and concluding to the right of Catalina #4 tee

Questions regarding these changes can be directed to Head Golf Professional, Troy Jewkes or members of the SaddleBrooke One Golf Committee.  Additional course marking changes may be made as the Committee gets more familiar with the new Rules and the USGA's new guidelines on course marking, including their effect on course rating.
