Aerial 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.

Cold and Wet Start to 2023

Mother nature has decided to start 2023 off on the wet and cold side. It has been since 2013 since we have seen a cold stretch like this. For the last two weeks of January the lows on the golf course have ranged from 14°F to 20°F. There was plenty of moisture to go with the cold temperatures as well in the form of rain and snow. For the month of January the golf courses received between 3" - 3.5" of moisture.

No_cart_zone_example

Example of "No Cart Zone" on Catalina #1

"No Cart Zones" are in effect on all courses open to cart traffic  

As cart traffic returns to the courses after overseeding the "No Cart Zones" will also be returning.  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   "Medical Flag Carts" .   This system will improve on course safety and course conditioning.

Reminders:

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

* The gates must still be used by all carts

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

*Sad #2, Cat #5, Cat #6, and Cat #8 will not have lines due to limited space and/or steep slopes.  All carts should remain on the path when around these specific green complexes or holes if it is a par 3

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