Tee Time Changes/Chelsea Reminders

*For any changes in players for your group play or changes in tee times -  PLEASE EMAIL THE PRO SHOP  rather than calling in or making changes in person in the pro shop and creating a back up at the Counter. 

**If you do not have a Chelsea number or need help understanding the Chelsea System; please visit the pro shop in the afternoon around 3:30pm - as the pro shop gets very busy during the morning & daytime hours this time of year, with membership renewals, checking in golfers & answering phone calls.  

Email the Pro Shop at -     proshop@saddlebrooke.org



CHELSEA POINTS / TEE TIMES REMINDERS


- If you play 9 holes or 18 holes Chelsea does not place you on the tee sheet according to how many holes you request to play. Chelsea works on average points for the group you are playing with ; it does not matter if you are a threesome or foursome - average number of points determines placement.  

- And just like Golf: the lower the points the better the tee times

Please CLICK HERE to see the Chelsea point system Document

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.

#3 Fairway on the Tucson Course 

What to expect when Tucson Re-opens next week:

- Cart Path Only to allow the new Ryegrass adequate time to establish prior to regular cart traffic

-You will notice that Tucson has more thin Ryegrass spots than the other two courses when they re-opened. This is due to the cooler night time temperatures while growing in Tucson. 

- Soft conditions due to the frequent irrigation required for Ryegrass establishment.

- Higher than normal mowing heights as the Ryegrass continues it's establishment process.  Mowing heights will be adjusted as the new Ryegrass matures.

- Slower than normal green speeds due to a higher height of cut in preparation for cooler temperatures.  Green speeds will increase with cooler weather and slower Bermuda growth.  


Tucson Bunker Project 

When Tucson re-opens from overseeding, the Tucson Bunker project will be complete. All of the bunkers on Tucson will be in play...sorry no more Ground Under Repair bunkers. All of the bunkers on all 3 golf courses have had new liner and sand installed the last 3 summers. The golf maintenance team appreciates everybody's patience while we completed this project. We hope you all enjoy the new sand in the bunkers. 


Cart Traffic Update

At this point in time the golf courses will remain cart path only. It is our goal to get carts back out on the turf, as soon as the newly established ryegrass can handle some cart traffic. We encountered warmer than normal conditions while overseeding this year. This has caused the following:

-Wetter areas due to increased irrigation

-Slower germination on slopes and areas difficult to keep wet

-Increased Bermudagrass competition with the new Ryegrass

As we see some cooler temperatures in the near future, we are expecting these issues to improve, which will allow for cart traffic. Look for an email and video update next week regarding when carts will be allowed back on the courses. Thank you for your patience during this time.

Cart Path Only

  • All holes will remain Cart Path Only
  • No traffic is allowed on the turf at this time 
  • All cart restriction decisions are based on course playability and turf conditions
  • Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience
