Scenic and challenging, it rolls through the foothills and features both gentle and dramatic changes in elevation. Breathtaking scenery, including dramatic views of the Sierras, Yosemite and a variety of wildlife, is just part of the experience. Natural lakes, streams and grasses frame each hole, with bleach-white bunkers to excite your every shot.
Stretching just over 6,800 yards from the back tees, the championship tees have a slope rating of 137. The mens’ tees measure 6,044 yards with a gentle slope rating of 122, and the ladies’ tees measure 4,486 yards with a slope rating of 117.

In 1997, Golf Digest named SThe Golf Club at Copper Valley the 7th Best New Upscale Golf Course in the country. Golf Digest has also rated Saddle Creek four and a half stars.
