As you travel the lush, green fairways set in a hammock of cypress and oak, the natural beauty of the par 70 Saddlebrook Course will transport you back in time to the Florida of the Conquistadores. The signature hole, the 425 yard 18th, magnifies this sensation. The drive must be sent down an emerald ribbon between stands of towering cypress, whose branches are adorned with Spanish moss, swaying gently in the breeze. Three white-faced bunkers in the landing area are framed by the lush green of the fairway. The soft afternoon sunlight glints softly off the deep pond fronting the green. Gators and turtles rest on the pond's bank. Blue herons stand in the water waiting for lunch to swim by. White egrets and wood storks nest noisily in the trees. Go for broke or lay up safely? Two solid, agressive shots will reach the green and award the player with par. Whatever the score, this course will provide a relaxing and satisfying experience that you will want to repeat.
