The Golf Maintenance Team is in the process of installing several dozen birdhouses in various locations on the courses. These houses are designed to attract several native bird species that have shown decline in recent years. Funding for this project was provided by individual members of the SaddleBrooke Women’s Golf Association. The houses were constructed by resident volunteers, Dave Leary and Jim Cloer. Special thanks to them for their hard work and enthusiasm for this project.
Here are some facts regarding this project:
Thank you to Sheila Clarkin, Jim Cloer, Dave Leary, and the SBWGA for their help with this project.

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.
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.
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 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.

When a player’s ball lies on the putting green, there is no penalty if the ball or ball-marker is accidentally moved by the player, his partner, his opponent, or any of their caddies or equipment.
The moved ball or ball-marker must be replaced as provided in Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1.
This Local Rule applies only when the player’s ball or ball-marker lies on the putting green and any movement is accidental.
Note: If it is determined that a player’s ball on the putting green was moved as a result of wind, water or some other natural cause such as the effects of gravity, the ball must be played as it lies from its new location. A ball-marker moved in such circumstances is replaced.
