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

Love Saddle Creek

The course is in excellent condition. The greens and fairways are in better condition than several other courses we’ve played lately. The immediate rough is manicured very short and tight. Beautiful views. Friendly staff. Golf Cart is very nice with an attached ice chest and the most comfortable plush seat in NorCal bar-none!
Thanks for the great round Saddle Creek!
Wonderful early Mother’s Day treat!

A hidden gem

I have come to learn that a majority of the time when an out of the way drive is required to reach a golf course, the course is going to be worth the drive. This was the case at Saddle Creek.
The course is a real hidden gem. Layout was well thought out. No two holes play together.
The fairways are immaculate and very forgiving.
Loved the course, and will definitely play when I am in the area again

Worth the Drive

Does not matter which route to get there it was a very scenic drive...The course is fun to play with elevation changes just enough to keep you thinking. We could play this every week!

Beautiful course. Excellent layout. Well kept fairways.

Friendly staff. Excellent golf carts. Course was well maintained with great fairways. I’m sure the greens are spectacular based on their shapes and undulations but unfortunately we played after they had aerated the greens.

Great course

One of my favorite courses to play. Interesting layout and challenging yet also beginner friendly. Just added gps to their carts and already had a club head cleaner, ball cleaner and small ice chest. Nice amenities and driving range also. Would recommend to any and all, and will be back.

Amazing golf

They just switched the front 9 to the back (I believe) so there was a lot of sogginess but I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Carts are plush with Bluetooth capability and touchscreens for electronic card s if you like. Screen also displays the course, This course provided ice cold towels and ice water at nearly every other hole The martial actually came and found me in the parking lot because I couldn’t find the first hole and was lost in the parking lot. Only complaints are: the pace of play was painful and the fact that when we finished our 18 holes (after 5pm) we were STARVING! and the restaurant was closed for a private party

Nice course!

Saddle Creek is a fun course. It has a nice variety of holes. Lots of tee choices including combo tees with ratings. It was very windy which made it really challenging. We'll definitely be back!

Excellent All--around Course

A little difficult for the High handicapper, so we played from the White Tees. The Back 9 plays a lot tougher than the Front 9, as there are more uphill shots into the greens, and more forced carries. The course is in excellent condition, staff was friendly, and the lunch after was excellent. Great price as I got a reciprocal with my Country Club.

Conditions slipping

I hope its just early in their season, but the course conditions are slipping here. I've played this 5 or more times and the conditions for last two are noticeably worse.
The course layout and scenery are awesome. The staff is extremely good. Food at the clubhouse restaurant is above average (which is good because there is nothing else nearby).
The bunkers (and its well bunkered) are awful. They either have drainage issues in the bunkers or need to adjust sprinklers because even late in the afternoon there is mud and standing water in the mostly dirt bunkers. The greens played much slower than I recall them previously playing. The tee boxes were in good but not great shape.
I'm hoping they can staff up and address what are easily fixable issues because the track is awesome.

Great course.

Morning shotgun was delayed 30 mins by frost. Group behind us were 4 women who were all members. They were right on us the entire round and even called the pro shop to complain. Marshall basically followed us for 9 holes. We played in 4 hours as a foursome so don't know what else we could've done to play faster.. Other than that annoyance the course was in great shape and the layout is pretty challenging but easy to score if you are able to keep it straight. Definitely recommend playing here if you have the chance.
