Course Information

Don't be misled by the 6,641 yardage on this par 71 Arnold Palmer golf course. While many of the holes provide generous driving areas, level ground is rare and the firm green fairways are contoured to resemble a rolling New England course. Facing the green from the slanting fairways, the small elevated emerald islands are framed by white-faced bunkers, azure ponds and gently swaying palm trees. Hilly lies and sweeping Florida breezes make it challenging to attain the accuracy needed to find these targets. The Tif-eagle greens are firm, fast and undulating, allowing only a crisply struck shot to hold their surface. Surrounding the greens, the thick, gnarly Bermuda rough tangles around the club and complicates the soft touch needed to play short pitch shots. Miss the green, and you face a difficult par. Several holes require length, all reward finesse.

The Approximate yardages for the Premier Series at Saddlebrook are as follows: Boys 10U: 4,876 : Girls 13U:5,138 ; Boys 11-13/Girls 14-18: 5,680; Boys 14-15/Boys 16-18: 6,613.
