Come and learn the basics of Chelsea, our online tee time reservation system.

RED FLAGS ON THE GOLF COURSE UPDATE: 

Recently, we have been reviewing the use of Red Flags and have found that we now have a very large number of flags that members have requested and received. There are approximately 375 flags currently issued. This is beginning to be a challenge to maintain optimal turf conditions. As a result, we are embarking upon an on-going review of the Red Flag issuance and compliance to the policy. We will be asking our Starters/Rangers to review compliance to this policy.

We will require all holders to sign a new/revised document that encompasses the rules and procedures (some of which have changed slightly.) When the database is completed, each Red Flag holder will be designated by an RF in the Chelsea system.

If you have a Red Flag, we ask that you come into the Pro Shop and please sign a new compliance form that outlines the rules and guidelines for the use of carts that have a Red Flag.

*When you arrive in the Pro Shop to fill out your Red Flag form, please be prompt and fill out your form and place it in Box with "RED FLAG FORMS" displayed on the front. 


NICE SHOT HOLE-IN-ONE!!

Mr. Larry Campbell made a hole-in-one on February 28th, 2019.  It was his 3rd hole-in-one he has made!!  The shot happened on Catalina course hole #3, from 145 yards out using a 7 iron. The shot was witnessed by Tom Herrmann, Steve Bellacqua & Marvin Swafford.  Nice Shot Larry!

2019 HOLE-IN-ONE CLUB REGISTRATION NOW AVAILABLE

Be sure to fill out your SaddleBrooke One "Hole-in-One Club" application, pay your fee and submit it to the Pro Shop.   $40 per entry form (forms available in golf shop)

Membership gets you two shots and the end of season Hole-in- One Shootout!  Every member of the Hole-in-One Club that makes a hole-in-one gets THREE additional shots at the shootout & will be paid out before the shootout begins for making a hole-in-one during the season. 

**ALL MEMBERS WHO WERE PART OF THE HOLE-IN-ONE CLUB IN 2017-18 WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE PLACED IN THE CLUB FOR THE UPCOMING SEASON** ( If you do not want to be a member of the Hole-in-One Club please email the Pro Shop before the deadline of March 1, 2019)


REMEMBER & A REMINDER - 

SaddleBrooke Golfers:  Please 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. 

If golfers fail to check in with the Starter (at the discretion of the Starter) other tee times who are checked in and waiting will be given the priority to tee off first while you wait for other players in your party, in order to maintain proper pace of play policy. 


*CHELSEA RESERVATION AND MAKING TEE TIME REQUEST REMINDERS - 

Recently, as well as in the past, we have had members "gaming" the Chelsea reservation system by putting in "fake" names -meaning names of players they know in advance are NOT going to be a part of their golfing group, and then removing that name, a day before or on the day of play; OR TELLING THE GOLF SHOP UPON CHECK IN THAT PARTICULAR PLAYER IS A "CANCEL".

When this is done, it affects everyone, it is also done to avoid others getting a better spot to play and it is keeping potential revenue from being collected by the Club.  Please refrain from doing this.  Any questions please visit the golf shop or Head Professional Troy Jewkes for clarification.  Thank you for your support and understanding.
