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.

Course of Play

Hole 1

A gentle dog leg left, the first hole has a deceptively large green. Make sure to factor in the slight uphill into your club selection.


Hole 2

The signature hole on the SaddleBrooke Course, hole #2 plays 110 to 140 yards depending on pin position. Carry the water, but be certain to avoid the two bunker guarding the back portion of the green.


Hole 3

The first par 5 on the course, hole #3 is a straight forward tee shot. The fairway does slope from left to right. Try to avoid the bunkers on the left.


Hole 4

A medium length par 4, this hole requires a 200 yard carry over a ridge in the middle of the fairway. Carry the ridge and you will be rewarded with a short iron into a sloping green from left to right.


Hole 5

A downhill par 4, either a driver, fairway wood or hybrid off the tee will leave players with a short iron into an elevated green. When the pin is in the front of the green pay close attention to the false front.

Hole 6

Club selection is critical on this medium length, uphill par 3. The green is over 40 yards in depth with a mound on the right side that causes shots to move hard left. Try to stay short of the pin on this hole.


Hole 7

The longest par 4 on this course, number 7 plays uphill all the way to a green guarded by a false front and a severely sloping green. Par is an excellent score on this hole.


Hole 8

A downhill par 4, the landing area is hidden by a mound at the start of the fairway. While requiring only a fairway wood or hybrid off the tee, there is out of bounds left and the fairway slopes dramatically from left to right leaving players with short iron into a green which slopes from left to right and front to back. This can be a good birdie opportunity.


Hole 9

A downhill par 5 closes out the SaddleBrooke Course. Long hitters will rejoice in an easy birdie opportunity. Take note of pin location as this relatively flat green is over 40 yards in depth.
