Thin fairways and entire 9 holes closed without notice at time of booking

Course is in a very stressed condition with fairways with limited turf.

Good Track, Needs Work

Saddlebrooke Ranch has been a solid course for many years. Biut has become a course in need of maintenance. Fairways had bare spots, green collars were dirt and greens spotty.

Good track, overall worth it

Worth it for $25. Layout overall is open with a couple tighter fairways here and there but even the desert miss can be found since it’s short brush in many areas. Both front/back are open, however, #10 (Par 5) is under serious repair and is only playable from about 120yards in (temporary tees are set up and it plays as a par 3). Other than that, fairways are a bit drier than most courses but playable. Greens are in decent shape and roll pretty well. Played in 3h:40m with a couple groups in front of us (slowed down on the last few holes).

Affordable Course in Great Shape

They only have the front nine open so you play it twice but we’ll worth the money. They keep the course soft and it is pretty forgiving for high amateurs.

Windy but FUN!

The aerated greens have come back and were rolling nicely. In another week they'll be back to near perfect condition. Course is starting to dry out in places which is to be expected in the Arizona desert! Really windy day as the course is quite exposed but makes for some challenges. Pace of play was right at 4 hours.

Very poor fairway conditions

For a proclaimed professional Golf course, this course needs a lot of work. Greens and tees are in good shape . Two or three years of good care needed to bring it up to where it should be.

NEED FAIRWAYS WORK

This has been one of my favorite courses for a long time. But I am presently bothered by the shape the course is in. However, there are a number of fairways that are in very rough shape with thin grass in many areas. The 9th and 10th in particular. Also the 4th. The fairway grass also is cut too short. Greens are in fairly good shape.

There is one place to get water on the front.nine without disposable cups
This place does nothing for the CUSTOMER above what is absolutely necessary

Covid play

Course in good shape for this time of year. Each player had to have own cart. You kind of lose that feeling of playing as a group of friends. Not sure we need to go to these lengths. Too much in my opinion.

All in all, being on the golf course overcame the covid restrictions. Had fun and played well

Enjoyable round

Despite Covid19 restrictions we had a good time. The one negative was that there was no water or any other liquid available. It was a cool day, so not too much of a problem. However, when it's 100 + that could be an issue. That fact should be prominently displayed on both Golfnow and the course website.

Everything But Water

Overall course is good; moderately difficult; however, in Arizona hot/dry conditions require hydration....at the clubhouse was a water source but no cups; on the course there was no provision for water. by the end of the round, felt weak and dehydrated. The Ranch MUST address this ASAP.....the COVID issue is no excuse for not having an accommodation for water.

Excellent condition

From tee to green, course is green, moist and a pleasure to play on. One of the better courses around Oro Valley while others go through problems with greens or rebuilds of same.
