This long dogleg right favors a drive down the left side of the fairway. Big hitters can reach in two, but beware the creek running along the front, left, and back of the green. Laying up short of the water is the safe play here.
Hole 1 - Par 5
Blue 556 yards
Drives down the right side will have an approach blocked by a large tree in the fairway. Keep your drive down the left side of this short dogleg right. A large bunker protects the front of the green adding difficulty if the pin is to the right.
Hole 2 - Par 4
Blue 360 yards
This straightaway Par 4 is not as easy as it may appear from the tee. A solid drive is necessary to carry the creek cutting through the fairway. Trees line both sides of the green and force an accurate approach.
Hole 3 - Par 4
Blue 417 yards
Trees line the tee boxes on both sides forcing a "thread the needle" drive on this dogleg right. The uphill approach to the green requires excellent distance control. With a bunker directly in front of the green and trees directly behind, club selection is key.
Hole 4 - Par 4
Blue 389 yards
The first Par 3 on the course plays the easiest, but missed shots pay the price. Shots on the green are rewarded and feed toward the pin. Out of bounds to the right and two green side bunkers to the left can quickly make the hole much more difficult.
Hole 5 - Par 3
Blue 143 yards
The 6th hole is one of the most beautiful holes on the course. Water hugs the entire left side of the hole from tee box to green with several deep fairway and greenside bunkers. Shots landing at the back of the sloped green leave fast downhill putts to a pin in the front.
Hole 6 - Par 4
Blue 373 yards
Shots must carry all the way to the green on the toughest Par 3 on the course. The challenge is both distance control and accuracy. There is little room for error with water in front and a severe drop-off long.
Hole 7 - Par 3
Blue 164 yards
Drives on the 8th must be right or left of the large tree in the center of the fairway. Drives too far right will end up in the trees, too far left will end up in the creek. Bunkers guard both sides of the green.
Hole 8 - Par 4
Blue 364 yards
Eagle is possible on this dogleg right Par 5, but it requires a crafty shot off the tee. Go either over or around the left side of the large tree standing directly in the center of the fairway. Laying up in front of the creek guarding the green is the safe play here.
Hole 9 - Par 5
Blue 531 yards
Stay down the right side of the fairway on this short dogleg left. The approach shot must clear the creek as well as the greenside bunker. Club selection is the key on this short hole.
Hole 10 - Par 4
Blue 383 yards
The #2 Handicap hole is long and uphill all the way. A big drive is needed to reach the green in two, but be careful. There is no room to miss right with the creek running the entire length of the hole, and two greenside bunkers protecting the putting surface.
Hole 11 - Par 4
Blue 428 yards
The 12th is a long dogleg right. Drives down the left side of the fairway give the best angle to reach in two. Water hugs the right side of the green and sand guards left creating a tempting risk-reward situation. If the pin is in the middle, go for it!
Hole 12 - Par 5
Blue 533 yards
Put your distance control to the test on this Par 3. Water runs from tee box to green and wraps around the right side. The creek is in play on the left, so choose your club and trust your shot!
Hole 13 - Par 3
Blue 162 yards
Take the water out of play and aim down the left side of the fairway on this dogleg right. Put it close and take it into the red on this birdie hole. The area right of the green is managed in partnership with the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary to preserve wildlife and environmental quality.
Hole 14 - Par 4
Blue 359 yards
The 15th is an uphill Par 4. Stay to the left on your approach in order to avoid the greenside bunker on the right. Hit it long, hit it straight, make par, and move on.
Hole 15 - Par 4
Blue 424 yards
Don't be intimidated by the blind tee shot. Keep drives to the right or over the bunkers on the left side of the fairway. The second shot is considirably downhill, so remember to take that into consideration during club selection. Choose wisely and be rewarded with a birdie.
Hole 16 - Par 4
Blue 430 yards
This elevated green is guarded by bunkers on the front and left. Remember the elevation will affect club selection, and don't forget to factor in the wind. Club up and take a smooth swing.
Hole 17 - Par 3
Blue 159 yards
Saddle Creek's 18th is the perfect finishing hole. Tucked away on an elevated tee box, players get a view of the entire course. Play away from the creek cutting across the front, and be aware of the pin placement on the two-tier green. Finish strong!
Hole 18 - Par 5
Blue 533 yards
