Experience Two Legendary Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Courses
Palmer Golf Course
Par 71 | 6,243 Yards
Saddlebrook golf is renowned for its legendary greens, which offer unique challenges and rolling fairways that impress beginning players and professionals alike. Thanks to there thoughtfully-planned resort design, the first tees of both courses and the 10th tee of the Saddlebrook Course are located at the center of the resort, as are both finishing 18th holes.
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. The Tif-eagle greens are firm, fast and undulating, allowing only a crisply struck shot to hold their surface. Several holes require length, all reward finesse.
Saddlebrook Golf Course
Par 70 | 6,480 Yards
As you travel the 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 Conquistadors. 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, where gators and turtles rest on the bank. Two solid, aggressive shots will reach the green and award the player with par. Whatever the score, this Arnold Palmer golf course will provide a relaxing and satisfying experience that will keeping you coming back for more.
