PACE of PLAY CONTINUED...

On Par 3's you are out of position unless you are on the tee, and ready to tee off, before the group in front of you is finished putting out.  On par 4's, you are out of position if you are not off the tee before the group in front of you is finished putting out.  On Par 5's you are out of position if you are not off the tee before the group in front of you reaches the green.

-Preferred lies are now in effect; for all play including all league play.  

Golfers will have the choice to play Preferred lies until August 15th, or until further notice




*GOLF CARTS & COMPLIANCE OF CART PATH ONLY HOLES* - 

PLEASE DO NOT DRIVE GOLF CARTS ON GREENS, BUNKERS OR TEE BOXES

Recently we have had several reports of golfers driving on the Fairway's of certain golf holes that are marked and identified as CART PATH ONLY holes; currently Tucson hole #6 has been marked as Cart Path Only for ALL golfers - and yet we have had reports of golfers driving on this particular hole, more often during the slower afternoon times.  

Please do not drive on the holes Marked as Cart Path Only holes - these holes are marked that way for a variety of important reasons.  The grass is going through transition and the native Bermuda grass needs warm weather along with humidity & moisture to grow and sustain itself during this time of year.  Golf Carts that drive on top of Bermuda grass that is trying to grow & thrive can have long lasting negative effects on the grass.  

Summer time brings less golfing traffic; more often in the afternoon time - this is the time of day when we see most violations of the carts off the paths. Going forward violators will be given a warning, followed by citations, which could lead to loss of golf privileges.  Thank you for your help and cooperation. 





*LIGHTNING ON THE GOLF COURSE/ SAFETY FIRST*

The Golf Shop will notify ALL players of any lightning strikes within 15 miles of the pro shop; Staff will also recommend to all players to get off the golf course until the storm has passed. 

Golfers are Advised to seek shelter upon hearing any loud warning from the pro shop (Air horn) or any verbal announcement.  It is NOT the responsibility of the Golf Staff to remove players during a lightning storm - Golfers may play or not play during a storm; but are encouraged to seek safety first. 




SaddleBrooke Golfers:  - Please Check in With your Starter.  

Golfers remember to have all members of your group arrive for your tee time at least 20 MINUTES before your scheduled tee time and then check in with your Starter.  All players must check in with the Starter, regardless of membership type.



News & Notes -

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

**Email the Pro Shop at -   proshop@saddlebrooke.org and we will help you with any questions you may have. 

Thank you for your support!!

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.

 - 2019 Overseed Schedule - 

- All Courses Open Next Week -

- Course Marking Changes - 

- "No Cart Zones" Reminder -

SaddleBrooke #5 this week

2019 Overseed Schedule

 Course Closes Re-opens
 Main PG's and Tucson Course Sept. 23rd Oct. 14th 
 Practice Facility and SaddleBrooke Course Sept. 30th  Oct. 21st
 Catalina PG and Catalina Course Oct. 7th  Oct. 28th 


Additional Course Marking Changes Have Been Completed

The USGA and the R&A have introduced the most comprehensive revision to the rules of golf since 1984.  The SaddleBrooke One Golf Committee and Management have approved several more changes to the golf course markings based on the new rules of golf.  These changes have been made to improve pace of play and ensure golfer safety. 

  Additional Penalty Areas - Will be marked with a red stake like other Penalty Areas.  Penalty areas will be added to improve pace of play and remove some steep slopes from play.

Locations:

  • SaddleBrooke #4 - The right side of the hole from tee to green at the desert edge

Questions regarding these changes can be directed to Head Golf Professional, Troy Jewkes or members of the SaddleBrooke One Golf Committee.  Additional course marking changes may be made as the Committee gets more familiar with the new Rules and the USGA's new guidelines on course marking, including their effect on course rating.

No Cart Zones

Example of "No Cart Zone" on Catalina #1

"No Cart Zones" are in effect on all 3 courses 

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

*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.


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
