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 before 2pm - 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

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.

Greens Maintenance

greens_topdress

Light Topdressing of Greens

You may have noticed a little extra sand on the greens this week. This is part of our regular maintenance of the Mini Verde Bermudagrass putting surfaces. A light vertical cutting is done ahead of the topdressing. This is done to promote plant health as well as smooth out the putting surfaces from the recent aerification. This practice will be performed on the greens every other week until overseeding.


No Play/Penalty Area on Catalina #2

"No Play/Penalty Area" Reminder



Red Stake with a Green Top designates a "No Play/Penalty Area"  

  "No Play/Penalty Areas"  were established on several holes for safety reasons.  These areas are designated by a red stake with a green top.  Balls must not be played from these areas.  Relief must be taken no closer to the hole under Rule 17.1d or 17.2, with a one stroke penalty.  Play from one of these areas is subject to a two stroke penalty under Rule 14.7a.
