Nestled at the base of the Santa Catalina Mountains, SaddleBrooke is a lovely age-restricted development built by Robson Communities. Unlike most active adult communities which are reserved for residents aged 55 or better, SaddleBrooke welcomes homebuyers as young as 40 years old.
While the SaddleBrooke community has amenities and activities to meet nearly any interest, its spectacular golf courses are certainly a focal point of the development. There are two semi-private 18-hole courses — MountainView Golf Club and The Preserve Golf Club at SaddleBrook — as well as a private 27-hole course which is open to residents only.
SaddleBrooke’s MountainView Golf Club was designed by renowned golf course architect Gary Panks to take advantage of the community’s breathtaking views of the Santa Catalina Mountains. To accommodate golfers of varying skill levels, the course has four sets of tees which range from 5,020 to 6,728 yards. The Preserve Golf Club at SaddleBrooke, designed by Dick Bailey, also offers four sets of tees for a challenging course which stretches across an impressive desert terrain.
For those who do not play golf, the community still offers plenty of recreations. Two spacious clubhouses — The MountainView Country Club and The Preserve Country Club — each offer many resort-style amenities. Residents can enjoy luxurious swimming pools and whirlpools, hobby and game rooms, arts and crafts studios, and state-of-the-art fitness centers. Outdoor sports courts support hobbies like tennis, pickleball, bocce ball, and basketball.
The DesertView Sports Club & Performing Arts Theater offers additional recreations with its own fitness center, tennis courts, swimming pool and softball field. It is also the site of SaddleBrook’s 478-seat theatre and a dog park with separate areas for large and small pets. When residents want a break from cooking in their own beautifully-designed home kitchens, they can enjoy a meal at one of SaddleBrooke’s casually elegant restaurants.
The Mesquite Grill and Palo Verde Bistro feature a Southwestern atmosphere, while The Preserve Restaurant is designed to showcase spectacular mountain views. While there are plenty of amenities and activities to support an active adult lifestyle, residents will also have no trouble finding a suitable social club as SaddleBrook features over 100 charter clubs, interest groups and leagues.
Whether looking for others who enjoy a long-held hobby or exploring a relatively new one, the wide range of groups makes it easy to meet new friends who share the same interests. With 4,589 luxurious homes, several spacious clubhouses, multiple golf courses and numerous social clubs, SaddleBrook truly offers resort-style living. It is an ideal location for outdoor enthusiasts, golfers and anyone who wants to retire in the shelter of Tucson’s beautiful Santa Catalina Mountains.
