California's Saddle Creek Resort earns high ranking by Golfweek

COPPEROPOLIS, Calif. -- Saddle Creek Resort - the Castle & Cooke golf community in the Sierra Nevada foothills of Calaveras County - has been named one of California's 10 "Best Courses You Can Play" by Golfweek.

The accolade is featured in the magazine's March 8 issue. Saddle Creek jumped six spots in the 2013 rankings and now sits in the top 10 with iconic layouts like Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill, Pasatiempo and Torrey Pines' South Course.

"We are ecstatic about the recognition from Golfweek," says Bob Higgins, General Manager. "It's a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team. Come see why Saddle Creek is a special golf course and resort nestled in a beautiful, bucolic setting."

Located two hours from the Bay Area and 1.5 hours from Sacramento, Saddle Creek is currently offering "March Madness" specials. Through March 31, enjoy 18 holes of golf with cart and range balls for only $75 per person (Monday through Sunday).

For those seeking overnight accommodations, stay in Saddle Creek's luxurious course-side bungalows for $129 per person, per night and receive a $25 resort credit to be used anywhere on the property.

Options include a full two-bedroom, two-bath bungalow, or a one-bedroom suite with full kitchen and dining area, and a living room with cozy fireplace. Guests also receive access to the resort's Sports Club, which houses a junior Olympic-size lap pool, workout equipment, tennis and bocce ball courts and a horse shoe pit. Saddle Creek's miles of hiking and biking trails are easily accessible as well.

Both of these offers are good for groups of eight or fewer. Please note the greens will be aerated March 18-24.

About Saddle Creek Resort
Situated in the rolling foothills of the Central Sierra region just two hours from the Bay Area and 1.5 hours from Sacramento, Saddle Creek Resort is located in the heart of the Copper Valley in Copperopolis. Golfers will discover stunning vistas of the towering Sierra Nevada Mountains to the east, while an ethereal collection of shimmering lakes, native trees, indigenous grasses and 100 bunkers provides a challenging, thought-provoking experience from tee to green. To create an atmosphere of tranquility and isolation, golf course architect Carter Morrish devised a routing in which no two holes run parallel to each other.

In proximity to Saddle Creek Resort is Copperopolis Town Square, a traditionally-designed, Gold Rush era-themed "country town" that is the retail and event hub of the Copper Valley in the Central Sierra region. Featuring charming boutiques, eateries and specialty shops, the pedestrian-friendly Town Square is the perfect place to spend some time after a round of golf.
