"Tyler has quickly become a key member of the Saddle Creek family and someone who is well-liked and respected by everyone who has the pleasure of meeting him," says Bob Higgins, General Manager.

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 sits in the heart of the Copper Valley in Copperopolis. Owned and operated by nationally-renowned developer Castle & Cooke, the premier Northern California golf community is site of the company's newest Oak Collection homes. Custom construction, eco-friendly "Green-Wise" features and dramatic vistas of the Sierra Nevada make them ideal for vacationers, families and retirees.

Golfers will discover an ethereal collection of shimmering lakes, native trees, indigenous grasses and 100 bunkers punctuating a challenging, thought-provoking course from tee to green. To create an atmosphere of tranquility and isolation, 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.
