recents rains have made course lush and green.

fairways are wide and speed of greens medium.

worth the extra mile to drive. played with three guys in their 70's poping coronas on the first hole to throughout the day. they drink like frat boys,kept asking me to join I felt older for not joining in on the beer fest.

First off, the round of golf went very well! The grass on most of the fairways and near the greens was extremely patchy at best. If you don't mind cleaning the mud off your golf ball and finding a green tuft of grass to place it for your next shot, it was in most cases better to be in the rough than in the fairway. The greens and traps were in nice shape. The price was also right.

Had an enjoyable round and I've booked a tee time for tomorrow!

Greens and Tees were perfect, but the fairways were terrible. Fairways are in transition to summer bermuda and were very thin and mostly dead grass and mud. Fortunately, the local rules for the day were lift, clean and place, so I could at least get a little grass under the ball for most fairway shots.

Played yesterday and the course is absolutely the worst I have ever seen it. Fairways were terrible with very little grass and they were soaking wet. Had to play lift clean and place to clean the balls and to find a piece of grass to put the ball on. they should have a warning on their website of the condition of the course.

I have played regularly at Saddlebrooke Ranch since 2007 and NEVER have seen this course in such poor shape. The fairways were almost unplayable. The greens were not In great condition but compared to the fairways it was an improvement. I complained to the staff member behind the desk and he said that he got many complaints about the condition of the course and will relay my concerns to the management. It will take months to improve the course into playable condition. Too bad because this was my favorite course to play!

Current conditions are punched fairways, otherwise greens and tee boxes excellent. Very tight lies around greens, and ground is damp. Difficult for chipping. Overall course is good for mid-June. Best value in town. Super friendly staff.

I have played this course many times. I enjoy the course. The Clubhouse staff is not very friendly and there are no services to provide food/beverages. The course did away with the beverage cart some time ago. We were lucky that there was a group between the 9th and 10th holes selling hot dogs (Excellent!), beverages and snacks. I know they are building a new clubhouse but simple services to customers in the summer seems like a no-brainer.

Front nine looked like a dog park after a poodle convention. The course should have been closed while the fairways were being plugged. It would have been better if we had played the back nine twice.

Normally, I enjoy the Ranch and think it is a good value. Not this time.

It is a nice course albeit a little flat. Wide open and forgiving for hitters who tend to miss the fairway. It can get windy but that helps keeps the course cooler than in town. I like playing it.

While the course is worth playing the pro-shop does not seem to like Golf Now players or at least I hope that is the situation and they don't treat members the same way. Indifferent is how I would characterize their attitude although others have called it rude.
