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.

The second and final round of course closures to complete required cultural activities will begin on June 15th, with the closure of the SaddleBrooke Course.  Each course will be closed for 2 weeks over the next month and a half. The following activities will be completed during this time period:

- Aerification of all turf areas

-Transition sodding as needed

-Sand topdressing of Fairways

-Drainage Work


Transition Update
17_transition
Tucson #8 Green Surround


With the warm temperatures here to stay, the courses have entered into the transition period.  This is the annual summer process that occurs as the courses transition from the overeseeded perennial Ryegrass back to the warm season Bermuda grass.  In some places you will not even know that transition has occurred and in others it will be much more noticeable.  By losing the Ryegrass, we are promoting Bermuda grass activity by eliminating the competition.  We have and will continue taking the following steps to manage this process:

  •  Increased watering and spot watering to ensure the Bermuda has the necessary moisture it needs
  • Spot fertility applications to fuel the Bermuda recovery
  •  Traffic management to relieve stress and promote Bermuda activity
  • Chemical applications to weaken the Ryegrass
  •  Aerification and Topdressing to improve the growing environment for the underlying Bermuda


This is always a difficult time period for the courses and this process will impact playing conditions to some degree.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding as the courses complete this necessary process.


Tucson Bunker Project Update 
18_bunkers
New Sand and Liner Installed on Tucson #9
Tucson #8 and #9 Bunkers Now Open for Play

Work on the Tucson bunkers continues to progress.  Work includes removing the old sand, refreshing the drainage, new bunker liner, and new sand. The golf maintenance team has removed the sand on hole #3 and working on #4. As the old sand is removed the bunkers will be marked as ground under repair. You may notice that the bunker liner is a different color this year. The liner being installed on Tucson is made from extruded PVC, where as on the SaddleBrooke and Catalina courses the liner was made from recycled rubber. The new liner works the same way the liner does on the SaddleBrooke and Catalina bunkers, it is porous and allows water to move through. Work will continue through most of the summer.  Thank you for your cooperation with this work.
