A nice change of pace

Saddle Creek was a nice change of pace. I do not live close to the course so it was over an hour drive away. But worth the drive. The greens were in very good shape except for #1. Fairways were very good also. And the recent infestation of Army worms in this part of the country has not affected this course. It is a moderately challenging course but the "creeks" come in to play quite often. I think the weekday rate of $44 is a bit steep and I think it would get more play at the $30-35 range, especially when the temps are 90-95, as they were today.

Amazing Hospitality and a Good Course

Staff is so friendly and accommodating!!!

Be aware that on Thursday morning they close the range to mow so no warming up on your longer clubs. A couple of greens are being worked on so a little challenging but otherwise course in good shape an enjoyable course to play!

Maintenance on every hole

Seems like no matter what time I go off the maintenance crew is on every hole. Other than that is a cool track, rarely ever too busy.

Most players welcome seeing the maintenance staff around here because they didn't for so long. We are always trying to improve the facilities. We try to find slower times to do things improving Saddle Creek Golf Club. Thank you for playing, we hope to see you back soon!

5 STARS Great Great course

5 STARS!!!

I am posting this to owners, management, and staff of Saddle Creek Golf Club to express my appreciation for the excellent customer service which we had received from your team on our annual golf outing this past weekend. The Golf course is in amazing shape and very well maintained. The Food is 5 Star, the kitchen staff is amazing, I just cannot express enough how wonderful the food is. Most importantly, I cannot say it enough how truly amazing the staff is. It is by far the best Service I have received ever. All in my group talked about how we all felt like royalty.

Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend of golf and food. WE WILL BE BACK!!!

Course is 6.5 or 7.0 on a scale of 1 to 10. It has improved s lot from previous years. There is still a lot of room for improvement. Several back tees need to be resided. Greens are not great. My biggest complaint would be that it is overpriced for the area. Also, the Hot Deal rate offered by Golf Now provided very little savings.

Best kept secret

I’ve liked this place for years now but of late, the course has been impeccable. Can’t beat it for the money, a little bit of everything a golfer could want, challenging but not ridiculous holes with a wide variety of required shots, and pace of play is always a non issue. I usually go to murfreesboro, Franklin, or Brentwood to play but this has become my “home”/ favorite course. Food is awesome, happy hour with good beer. Friendly staff. Overall excellent. Highly recommended. Good job SCGC on getting this place to where it is today.

Getting better

The course is greening up and getting into better playing conditions. You can tell they had some flooding issues. Greens are in good shape but slower than expected. Still a great course and I’ll be back.
