Greens need work
Always enjoy saddlebrook on either course. The course in in good shape for late summer, but the greens were not up to par. There wee very rough and did not roll well. Some had patches and still showed aeration holes with sandy spots.
Greens are not up to normal levels
I have played here 5-6 times. Today was bad. Pace of play was 5 hours.....in Florida thats terrible.
The greens were fuzzy, not mowed tight, sand filled and patchwork everywhere. They have really gotten bad since I played there 2 months back. Don't roll true and the ball bounces all over the place. Burnt spots on every green....
The course is beautifully maintained.It is not a long course. The green had be top dressed and, as such, not mowed and pretty slow. But, once we have some rain and the dressing settles in greens should be quite good.Fun course to play.
Staff not friendly, had to valet park and then someone carted you to Pro shop TIP, TIPS, all they seem interested in.. The bag guy didn't even put our bags on cart, just said pick a cart and go. 1st green terrible condition and a few more on the course. They closed the Palmer Course for awhile so why wasn't this course in better shape. Not a RESORT course like I know. Won't go back.
Very nice course layout, greens were a little rough.
Tees and fairways in excellent shape. Course layout was good resort course. Playable for all skill levels. Very nice overall. Greens were not in the best shape but putted fine.
beautiful course, in great shape overall for this time of year, staff very good, treated great.
Rough is supposed to be mean bunkers
I have played Saddlebrook several times and have always considered them some of the top courses in the area. Beautiful course with speedy smooth greens is why I chose to drive an hour just to play here. The greens are horrible, rumble strips on the highway would be easier to putt. Wait a few weeks then they should have it back in the fantastic shape we expect from them.
Nice layout, rough greens.
If you have not played Saddlebrook before, be advised you will have to valet your vehicle. The pro shop will validate your valet ticket. The tees and fairways were in fair condition, and most of the bunkers were in good shape. The greens, however, are in pretty rough shape. Very bumpy and inconsistent. Everyone on staff from the valet, cart wranglers, pro shop, starter and beverage cart were very nice and welcoming. This is a difficult time of the year for greens in Florida, so lower your expectations in that area if you plan a round here.
Pace of play was reasonable for a Sunday morning (4 hours).
What a maze
Such a maze to get around. Didn't like the here and there to get to the driving range and than back to pro shop and than to the golf course. Won't go back, u need a GPS to get around. Plus we had to wait at every hole to tee off took 4 1/2 hours to play. Some greens need repair badly. Plus we had to park a mile away from everything and ride a bus with are clubs.
Well maintained course with courteous and friendly staff. Great experience.
Great for money spent.
They are currently doing some work on greens and is wet due to all the rain but for the money it is fantastic.
First time playing this course but really enjoyed the course layout. The greens had been punched recently and a lot of the greens had bad spots. Hard to figure out how to park and get to the pro shop.
Palmer Course July
I was pleasantly surprised on the course. The staff has recently airated the greens and I was not upset at all due to the fact that it was such a nice course. Will be playing there again. Thank you.
Great condition course, not the longest but the small tiered greens require an accurate approach shot.
All Staff were really friendly, and made our party feel really welcome.
Good course - better Amenities
The greens were so-so. They had been aerated recently and still had holes. If you could predict the hops, you could get close from a distance, otherwise, good luck.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The driving range was a long way from everything.
Great course but greens poked
I have played the Palmer course many times when the greens weren't poked and a real fun and challenging course always in great condition. I knew the greens were aerated but decided to play anyways thinking with all the rain that they'd be healed a bit, but was wrong. Between sand and big holes were quite bumpy and basically in the automatic 2-putt range. The day was great weather-wise and pace of play was terrific as we started at 10am and finished at 12:15, and that was us being a twosome. Highly recommend this course when greens heal up.
They have just done a punch, which made putting *
Had a great time working on my irons and driver!
As always. It a pleasure to spend the day at Saddlebrook Resort. Great Course and Staff.......
Looking forward to going back.
