Very nice and fair course

Played a foursome this morning and the course ran a 8:00 am shotgun start, that made pace of play very quick. We finished in just under four hours. Course played very well. Very fair course, rewards for good shots and penalties for bad ones. The fairways were a bit over saturated but other than that course was a pleasure. Staff was very friendly and nice.

Saddle or Copper?

Overall the course was fine, the layout is fantastic, very interesting and challenging (I played the blue tees). The greens rolled smooth, though they were slower than I remember when it was Saddle Creek. Fairways were fine, but do have some dead spots in areas, either not getting water in those places or burned them earlier, not a big deal however. Overall, the course is still very playable and a lot of fun!

Always delivers an experience

I play the Club at Copper valley every summer, some people can't handle the heat so it makes for a 3.5 hour afternoon round.

There is a slight fungus or growth in most of the greens but not enough to cause bumpiness. They also put. lot of water on the course overnight so you get a few soggy places in the fairway with an occasional plugged drive. Apart from that perfect as always..

Great place to play

What an awesome course. We went out and were paired with two members(Dave and Mike). They were outstanding playing partners and ambassadors of the club. The course was outstanding and except for a couple spots it was over watered was in great condition. Greens were firm and interesting resulting in challenging play. Pace was outstanding and Copper Valley is now on my list of best places in the Valley.

Good course, bad service

Course was beautiful and in excellent condition. Would say it was a steal at $100 but the amenities were horrible. Tried to order food at the turn and they said they don’t do to-go orders. So then we tried to order at the restaurant and they said they were reservations only and completely booked. Crazy that they won’t sell food to golfers (and this was at like 1pm). And they wouldn’t even sell us a beer! Then we finished our round around 3pm and wanted to play another nine, but the pro shop was already closed. Was just weird

Worth trying Copper Valley as known as Saddle Creek

Tried this course out when it was phasing our from Saddle Creek to Copper Valley. Course is a bit harder than It’s neighboring Greenhorn. Condition was okay. Staff were friendly but didn’t get much drinks from the beverage cart or lack of. Value is there but would prefer somewhere else
