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.

  March 20, 2020

In an continuing effort to adjust to the current situation regarding the COVID-19 Virus, a few temporary adjustments have been made to golf procedures.  These are in place to maintain community safety while continuing to offer the ability to utilize the golf courses here at SaddleBrooke One. 

  • An adjustment has been made to the cups on the greens. We have added a piece of pvc pipe to the bottom of the cup. The pvc pipe will keep golf balls toward the top of the cup. This will allow golfers to retrieve their ball without having to touch the flag stick, as well as reaching their whole hand inside the cup. With this in place we encourage golfers to leave the pin in at all times to ensure everyone's safety.

  •  The practice green flagsticks have been removed. 
  •  Ball washers will be removed from the courses. Please carry an extra towel with you if you normally utilize the ball washers on the course.
  •  Bunker rakes have been removed from the course. Maintenance staff will groom the bunkers in the morning and periodically throughout the day.
Temporary Local Rule - Free Relief from disturbed or un-raked areas of bunkers
