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.

The Monsoon Rains Have Returned
We are off to a great start to the monsoon season here at SaddleBrooke.  We are now over 4" of rain around the SaddleBrooke One golf courses. The golf courses benefit in many ways from receiving rain fall. One of the main benefits this time of year is the humidity that comes with the monsoon rains. The Bermuda grass is tropical, so with the heat and humidity the Bermuda grass is in its natural growing environment and thrives.

Yellow Spots In The Fairways

Fairway with Yellow Spots

You will notice over the next couple of weeks yellow spots start to form in the fairways. This is from a post treatment of some grassy weeds that have broken through our pre-emergent application. The Bermuda grass will turn yellowish in color, but will bounce back to normal after a couple of weeks.
