Perfect for a Day With Your Buddies

I've played Saddleback numerous times since moving to Eastern Iowa, but other than scrambles, it had been a few years since I played it.

With the late spring we're having here in Iowa, I was a little worried about the course conditions, but I shouldn't have been. Saddleback is in immaculate condition, as always. The greens were maybe a touch slow, but rolled very true. As the lady in the clubhouse told me, a little fertilizer and a little water works wonders.

Saddleback is unique in that there are 6 par 5s, 6 par 4s and 6 par 3s. The course meanders it's way up and down and across the ridge that runs through the middle of the course. The layout is very linksy, though it doesn't roll/bounce like a links course. The green complexes are huge and challenging. If you get on the wrong side of the greens, you'll have a difficult 2 putt.

The best thing about Saddleback is it's playable for all skill levels. In our 4 some we had 2 single digits and 2 bogey+ golfers. We all picked the right set of tees for our games and we all had some highlights and none of us left feeling bad about our round.

Off course, they have a nice range and a putting/chipping green. The bar inside has typical drinks and hot dogs/brats, but no real dinner service. And there is no on-site pro shop, though they do sell a few different types of golf balls and of course tees.

I highly recommend Saddleback Ridge if you're looking for a fun round of golf with friends.
