Good track

Play there regularly. Due to repairs #1 & 10 shortened from par 5's to 100yd par 3's. Course in good shape, greens role nice. Wide fairways. Unfortunately, pro shop staff need an attitude adjustment and there is no on course refreshment cart.

Saddlebrook 16 and 2 halfs

Course was in good shape.... except for number 1 and 10. Did not allow for proper play. Both par 5 holes turned into par 3 for work on them. Would have been nice to know.

Coming back!

Course is in pretty good shape, greens are excellent fairways mostly good. Playing 1 and 10 as 100 yard par threes until the overseed so it plays to a par 68. Bunker work is done. Lot of fun to play.

Defer playing Saddlebrooke Ranch for awhile

Fairways are in rough shape. Lots of restored turf around the greens, that's not fully established. Greens are fine. 2 par 5s converted to par 3s while they restore fairways. Wait for a few months to play here, by then course should be in good shape. They're working on it, plenty of groundskeepers in evidence.

Could be better

Didn't get off to a good start first with the staffer when checking in then the first hole under repair wasn't good either. However I was paired with three other players which were great and made the day enjoyable despite the early disappointment. Once the maintenance work is completed the course will very good and will look forward to playing here again, I hold no hope for the staffer.

Course was undergoing bunker sodding and bunker drainage work and fairway Burmuda fairway promotion practices. Pro shop should have advised 2 holes were closed. Now not a good value. Generally layout is good. Marshall was courteous, pace of play good and beautiful clubhouse but course not in good condition! Wait till the fall to play!

17 holes

Course is in poor condition, fairways are dead.
They are doing bunker renovations so during the week they close one hole ,plus #1 is playing as 100 yard par 3.
Almost makes it a 16 hole golf course.
On a positive note the greens are in fine shape.
Because of the other issues I would play elsewhere until they get a handle on their fairways and have 18 holes.

Saddle Brooke Ranch

Course was in terrible shape just done aerating and scalped the fairways and wet because trying to get the grass back. Half the sand traps under repair!! Was told that one hole was unplayable and then #1 was reduced from a par5 to a 100 yard. Par3!!!! Nobody at Golf Now said anything about how bad it was!!! Will not go back!

The course needs rain... and much better management.

The fairways have all beeen scalped {excessivelyt} in anticipation of the arrival of the Monsoon. The frst fairway {apar 5} is being redone so now plays as a par 3 giving the course a rating of 70 vs 72.

We teed off at 7, the first tee time of the day, but sadly the proshop sent a bunch of folks off on the back nine instead of the front and we ran into a wall of bozo's starting on 11. We managed to play throough several groups and after waiting quite a while broke through the nonsense and managed to finish our round but the delays were ridiculous and totally unnecessary.... Arrrg!

They will start redoing 23 of the sandtraps later this week and this will dramatically impact the playability of this course for at least a couple of weeks.

Hopefully in a couple of weeks the course will get back to playable but for now {sadly} it is not worth the effort. This time of year course conditions are absurd but once the Monsoon kicks in and repairs are finally made it may get back to playable... well, maybe... sigh.

Good experience.

Just enough challenges to make it interesting and enjoyable. The grill/bar/ restaurant is very nice and the food was outstanding. Great view in all directions.

Great pace of play

4th time I have played this course this year. Great value and course is set up to allow under 4 hour pace of play.. Summer is here and the course is browning out and fairways are tight. Greens are very large so practice your lag putts before teeing off.
No cart girl but an outstanding grill and brews clubhouse across the street.
Can't wait to go back.

Cooler at the Ranch

When golf is too HOT in Tucson, we always play the SB Ranch as it is cooler.

Used to be a lot better...

Despite being well into June we continue to see prime time spring rates. The fairways have all been excessively scalped and absent the start of the Monsoon they are overwatering to try and revcover the growth they mowed into oblivion. Soggy, muddy fairways do not play well.

The greens have recently been aerated and are horribly slow and bumpy - no warning of these conditions on the Golf Now site like they used to post {What's up with that GN?}

Pace of play was awesome being the first Tee time {0700} of the day. No services are available on the course. No Marshalls are to be found, no drinks or snacks are available and if you have a problem {we did not} you are on your own.

Hopefully this course will get it together and recover the level of a quality golf experience they used to have but for now, not so much... sigh.
