*CHELSEA SYSTEM UPDATE - TEE TIMES:

 June 3rd 2019 - Updated change in Tee Times selections - Threesomes & Foursomes will be given priority & selected by the Chelsea system based on the lowest number of averaged points of all the players in the group.  There is NO PRIORITY given to foursomes over threesomes or vice-versa.  It is solely based on average number of points; just like Golf the lower the points the better - this update has been applied to the Chelsea system and will be on-going as of June 3rd 2019. This update also puts us back with 95% of the clubs across the country that use the Chelsea system and the average points model; as it is (was designed for) the most effective manner in using a lottery tee time system.

This update will not affect Twosomes and Singles; as Chelsea monitors Twosomes and Singles and places them with other Twosomes and open spots within the request window - just like before, no change in Twosomes and Singles. 

The SaddleBrooke One Golf Staff also monitors the placement of Twosomes and singles and pairs players up to maximize tee times - please keep this in mind when you have a twosome and want to only play as a twosome - during the busiest months Twosomes are paired up to maximize tee times and space for other players.  The less busy months (Summer) will be a better opportunity for players to play as a Twosome. 


*RANGERS ON THE GOLF COURSE - In the near future the golf course will once again feature Rangers (and/or Marshall's) on the golf course - monitoring, enforcing, recording & providing direction on some New & some NOT new rules on the golf course in regards to the proper driving of golf carts while on the golf course: (more to come on Rules etc..)

A few years back the previous Golf Operations team and golf Committee did away with this practice / so we wanted to give everyone notice going forward that you will once again see Rangers on the golf course - we ask that you treat them with respect - Please listen and adhere to there instructions; which are to provide safety and compliance to the rules on the golf course.  



*GOLF CARTS SAFETY REMINDERS:

*Do not drive your golf carts behind greens - This is a HOA 1 policy; please be sure to inform your groups that no golf carts can be left or right (adjacent  to) or behind any green on the golf course - regardless of having a medical flag assignment or not.  Please plan ahead and do not park drive the golf carts anywhere they should not be. 

*Do not drive your golf carts behind tee boxes - or Park your golf carts on the grass adjacent to any tee boxes.

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.

June 21, 2019  

 - Establishment of "No Cart Zones" - Catalina Course Closed Next Week - No Play/Penalty Area Reminders


No Cart Zones

Example of "No Cart Zone" on Catalina #1

"No Cart Zones" will be installed on the courses beginning on July 1st. All cart traffic is restricted in these areas.  These areas will provide a visual yellow line that should not be crossed by any golf cart, including "Red Flag Carts".  It has become apparent that there is a lack of understanding regarding where it is permitted to drive a golf cart on the courses and where it is not.  These "No Cart Zones" will provide a visual reference for all golf cart drivers.  The golf staff will be actively enforcing the the use of carts in these zones.  

Quick facts and benefits:

* Safety on the course will be improved

* Improved turf conditions in green surround areas

* A yellow line will designate the "NO CART ZONE" on each hole

* All cart traffic is prohibited in these zones

* Fairway cart signs should still be used as the proper location to exit the fairway and return to the cart path

Thank you for your cooperation as we work to improve golf course safety and enhance course conditioning.

Greens Aeration completed this week on the Catalina Course

-Aerification of all turf areas

-Transition sodding as needed

"No Play/Penalty Area" Reminder



Red Stake with a Green Top designates a "No Play/Penalty Area"  

Changes to the Rules of Golf at the beginning of the year allowed for the remarking of the courses in several areas.  "No Play/Penalty Areas"  were established on several holes for safety reasons.  These areas are designated by a red stake with a green top.  Balls must not be played from these areas.  Relief must be taken no closer to the hole under Rule 17.1d or 17.2, with a one stroke penalty.  Play from one of these areas is subject to a two stroke penalty under Rule 14.7a.

PLEASE BE SAFE ON THE COURSES



Cart Traffic Update - Gate System Suspended for the Summer

  • Regular cart traffic is allowed on all courses 
  • Some holes may remain closed to all traffic
  • Please follow all posted signs
  • Please return to the cart paths as soon as possible
