The Preserve at Saddlebrooke
So much potential, but...
Second and last time playing this course, for the same reason. Pace of play is horrible, round took 5+ hours and the course Marshal did nothing to speed things up. I understand that it may take a bit longer for our Seniors to play a round, but then the course shouldn't cram so many golfers into the schedule. Was also quite surprised that no beverage car (both times this has been the case) and the last time the snack bar / restaurant closed !

Preserve is a must.
Course and facilty was in great shape. Making the turn at apprx 12:50 no personnel at the club snackbar/restaurant....
Made the turn hungry & thirsty.
Although signs say no outside food/beverage, we should have brought something.

Wow! Spectacular holes.
Good design with a lot of elevated tees with great views. Greens were very slow due to recent overseeding. Cart paths only slowed down the pace of play. I understand it was the last day this fall.
Wide fairways and large greens make it a very friendly course. Good choices of tee boxes with suggestions on back of scorecard based on length of drive. Good idea.
I will play there again during my vacation.

Great golfing experince
Beautiful views of the Catalina Mountains on a
very challenging course. Course was in excellent
shape. Most of the fairways are banked either right or left. Course knowledge extremely important in
scoring well on this cource.

Good layout for a desert course. The par threes were spectacular.
only critical comment is traps were in bad shape and only one rack per large trap.

Love this course!
The course was in excellent shape, except for the connection between hole 15 and 16. Construction made it almost impossible to cross over.
Because of reseeding, it was cart path only. Tough, hilly course to "walk" from cart to ball and back.
Can't wait to play in "normal" conditions. Can't beat the views !!!!!!!!

Great scenic desert golf course
If you like target golf in the desert you will love this one. Several well designed tricky holes that require course knowledge. Two holes are borderline between great design and tricked up. It will challenge you to keep coming back if you like to think your way around. Very scenic against the foothills of the Catalina Mountains. When it's hot in Tucson play at this higher altitude where it is 4 to 5 degrees cooler. This is a hidden jewel that is a great value. The only downside is the gray haired snow birds tend to be snobby like they own the course and do not let faster players play through. Owe well, they pretty much do own it and have paid their dues.
