About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 72
Length 7041 yards
Slope 133
Rating 72.7

Colorado-born designer Andy Johnson created the 18-hole, public course at the Saddleback Golf Club. It is located in Firestone, just north of Denver. The championship course features 7,019 yards of golf from its longest tees and plays to a par of 72. The terrain resembles a classic prairie with views of mountains from both the north and the south. The links-style golf course features large, undulating greens and open, rolling fairways. There are also man-made lakes scattered throughout the course that create water hazards on some of the holes. Saddleback Golf Club has many challenging holes, two to note are the fourth, which has an island green, and the seventh, which features a split fairway.

A Great Course with Great Views

Played here on a Thursday afternoon, and thought it was a very nice course. Quite busy, but a steady pace of play was not affected. Fantastic clubhouse and off-course amenities. Course was pretty open, but with water hazards on a handful of holes. Trees are no issue at all. Greens were fast and true. My son and I really enjoyed Saddleback and the beautiful views of the front range and Long Peak. We only had one complaint: the current top dressing on the course is way too gravely and scratched up the soles on a couple of my clubs pretty badly. I hope they use a finer top dressing sand in the future. Again, generally a very nice, and very playable course.

Fun course, excellent personality

This is a neat course that is going to be terrific in a few years as it matures. The holes are laid out nicely, with some challenges and some relief. The rough is thick, so you'll be penalized by missing the fairway, but not so thick that you can't find your errant shots. Some of the greens have terrific undulations, giving you some eventful putts if your approach isn't stellar.

The personality of this course is what makes it a lot of fun - the course guide is truly humorous, and the staff are very helpful and true to the fun atmosphere starting with a visit to their website.

The island greens make for some fun approaches. My only complaint was that the greens were very sandy - but we may have played shortly after some treatment had been applied, so I'm willing to let that go. The rental clubs used in my group were in good condition. The pace of play was good - just over 4 hours for 18 holes.

I enjoyed this course, as did my parents and brother--in-law (30+ handicaps).

The Best Course in the Area

This is the best course in the area. While Ute Creek is a really nice course, it is way too hard. Saddleback is easier than Ute Creek but still challenging. It is well maintained and just an overall nice course.
