Saddlebrook - Saddlebrook Course

5700 Saddlebrook Way Wesley Chapel, FL 33543-4499 URL:   Course Website

View Tee Times

The Saddlebrook course just opened with new greens in December, 2006 and is much tighter and flatter, with narrow tree-lined fairways and water on most holes. The 18-hole, par 70 Saddlebrook Course is conveniently designed so that the first tees of both courses and the 10th tee of the Saddlebrook course are located at the center of the resort, adjacent to meeting and guest rooms, restaurants and shops. The layout was designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer, incorporating wilderness areas full of cypress, pines, palms and wildlife with rolling fairways and well maintained greens.

A Florida standby, but staff excellence for me This is a fine resort course in good shape, but what made the day for me was the 2 guys in the pro shop. I bought a Hot Deal for the wrong day by mistake, and these guys really bent over backwards to make it work for me, even though it was entirely my fault. (I'm sorry I forgot your names.) It was the last day of my Florida golf trip and it could have been a debacle, but they honored the deal anyway. I've played Saddlebrook before; it was and is a first-class resort all-around.

Overrated I understand that during November, Bermuda will get all brown and nasty, but this course was in worse shape than most other Bermuda courses I've played. I regularly have better experiences at military courses of all places, such as NAS Pensacola (well their course is actually pretty fantastic, but if on a low budget that course can be that good, then...). Every green had overgrown grass and rolled very slowly. Readable, but slow as molasses. The tee boxes also required mowing. The fairway grass was not clipped as tight and was not as dense as it should be. I understand it's Bermuda in November, but again, this was bad even compared to other Bermuda courses this time of year. Saddlebrook has an insane amount of staff, you will always see 2-4 people where you only need 1-2 (pro shop, valet, starter, bag drop...It was overkill for the amount of business they had). If they're gonna maintain that much staff, they should repurpose a lot of them to greens keepers and what not, the course desperately needs the TLC. Then just a weird thing about the place: it's a time machine. You could swear you'd been transported back to the 80s or something...I felt trapped in a Roger Moore era Bond movie, but without the villains. The facilities were in good shape and all, but it seemed as if there was an effort to maintain everything exactly as how it had been when the place opened. It felt....just weird. November 14, 2014
Big disappointment Very confusing resort. Not friendly. Over priced food. Course only average. Expected much more November 12, 2014
Traditional "northern style" course in the heart of FL. Saddlebrook is always a fun round. Played by myself on the Saddlebrook course on a Sunday morning in 3 1/2 hours and was not rushing. The greens were in excellent shape, and rolling fast and true. The bunkers were a little inconsistent, but that is pretty normal for Florida. The staff was very friendly as usual, and went out of their way to thank me for playing their course. Be advised, if you have not played here before, you will have to valet your car. Get your ticket validated in the pro shop. November 3, 2014
saddlebrook golf course. Great day golfing only problem was waiting for group infront werehitting two balls and slow ruin my game. October 29, 2014
Saddlebrook Went out as a single on a Sunday morning. Sat behind a twosome for 9 holes, but after they quit two foursomes let me through on 10 and no-one else on the course. Greens were so-so. Some were perfect, others had some dead grass, but still not bad. Overall 7/10. Fairways were 8/10, teeboxes 6/10 and traps 7/10. It is a bit hard to find your "normal" tees, as it is 6,500 from the back, but only a par 70. 6,000 from the whites par 70 would have been too short, so I was stuck in the middle and decided to play the back. Still, it's playable from there (I'm an 8). Very much a local knowledge course, so if you are playing without a skycaddie, etc., or someone who knows it, you will be in trouble as this course is about the driving. If you can keep it in the fairway or just off, you'll do fine because 2nd shots will generally be short. Several drives from the back tees however have to be essentially straight for 100 yards+ until you clear the chutes of trees. Staff was overall pleasant. Range is bad - hitting area was so-so, balls were bad and wet and muddy and it hasn't rained in 2 weeks. Plus, balls are $5??? Really? OK for me because I had a deal time, but if I was paying over $100 I'd be less than thrilled. Also, they need more signs directing you around to the range, first tee, 10th tee, etc. I got lost twice. Overall, got it for $48 on GN so was a good deal. No way I'd pay regular price to play here. Also, you have to valet your car, etc., so plan on an additional $20 in tips for the numerous people you'll have to take care of coming in and going out. October 28, 2014
Saddlebrook Course Went as a single. I was paired up with 2 other singles which was great. I do not like playing alone. Course was in good shape. Still recovering from extensive rain. The 90 degree rule was in effect for all but 2 holes which is not a big deal. Greens were fast but not too fast and in great shape. I would definitely recommend to others. October 24, 2014
Saddlebrook I truly enjoyed playing a round at Saddlebrook. The course was in terrific shape but also very challenging. There is water or some type of hazards around every hole but the fairway's are fairly wide so you have good chances for good ball placement for second and third shots. Overall a great place for a beginner such as myself or more experienced golfers looking for a challenge. October 20, 2014
