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.
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.
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 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.

Transition Update - July Cultural Schedule - SaddleBrooke Bunker Project - 2018 Over-seed Dates
Over the last 2 weeks the courses lost any Ryegrass that remained in the over-seeded areas from the winter. In some spots this was the predominant grass and now these spots are thin or bare and brown. This removal of Ryegrass is necessary and beneficial for Bermuda grass recovery because it eliminates the competition. The arrival of the Monsoon period and the higher levels of humidity are also going to be beneficial to Bermuda recovery. The intensive cultural program early in the summer is designed to put the Bermuda grass in the best position to take advantage of these positive weather conditions. We will push growth in these areas and use sod and sprigs as needed to facilitate a quick recovery.
July Cultural Calendar
The cultural program will continue this month. Each course will be closed for a full week to aid in the transition process. These practices are essential to maintaining healthy turf grass. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.
SaddleBrooke Bunker Project
New Bunker Sand and Liner SaddleBrooke #1 Fairway Bunker
Work continued this week installing bunker liner and new sand on the SaddleBrooke Course bunkers. This project is scheduled to take most of the summer months. Bunker liner installation will begin this week. Expect certain bunkers to be roped off and marked as Ground Under Repairfor short periods of time during this process. The new sand will be very soft at first but will compact over the first few months to a more acceptable firmness.

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.

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.
