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.

May marks the beginning of the summer cultural program on the courses.

How is your golf course etiquette?

Leaving the course as you would like to find it is one of golf’s guiding principles.  Filling divots, repairing ball marks, smoothing bunkers, and following all cart restrictions are some of the activities required for good golf etiquette.

SaddleBrooke One residents have a strong history of demonstrating a willingness to help make sure the course is as good as it could be.  The Adopt-a-Hole program was a strong helping hand in years past when the courses really needed some extra attention. 

The busy nature of the SaddleBrooke One courses will always present opportunities for additional contributions from SaddleBrooke One golfers and their guests.  Golfers are encouraged to participate at the level of their choosing.  Whether it’s practicing proper golf etiquette during your round or spending some time filling divots and repairing ball marks after hours on your favorite hole; it all makes a difference. 

Your fellow SaddleBrooke One golfers and the golf course maintenance team appreciate your continued efforts in making the SaddleBrooke One golf experience the best it can be.

New Local Rule for 2018

Modification of Score Card Penalty

The Exception to Rule 6-6d is modified as follows:

Exception: If a competitor returns a score for any hole lower than actually taken due to failure to include one or more penalty strokes that, before returning his score card, he did not know he had incurred, he is not disqualified. In such circumstances, the competitor incurs the penalty prescribed by the applicable Rule, but there is no additional penalty for a breach of Rule 6-6d. This Exception does not apply when the applicable penalty is disqualification from the competition.

New Local Rule for 2017

ACCIDENTAL MOVEMENT OF A BALL ON THE PUTTING GREEN

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.
