Mountain View Golf Course is a semi-private course 15 minutes north of Tucson in the active adult community of Saddlebrooke. Opened in the winter of 1997, Mountain View Gold Course hosted the Arizona Senior Open the last three years. Its generous fairways and greens are in fine condition for spring play, offering a layout that all golfers will enjoy.

Mountain View Golf Course opens with a 373-yard par 4. The Santa Catalina mountains shade the hole until mid-morning making for a cool start. Right of the fairway on the hill lies an old cattle lake where numerous species of wildlife, such as deer, mountain lion, and javelina, go to drink. Mountain View sits at 3,300 feet, with temperatures a few degrees cooler than Tucson. Combining that with the nearby mountain terrain, it is easy to see why wildlife is a part of the Saddlebrooke golf course.

Mountain View's most difficult par 3 is #8, measuring 207 yards. It's uphill into a large green. Two bunkers protect the back left portion. A back left pin placement is just a sucker pin. The smart play is to aim for the middle of the green and two putt for par.

The back nine opens with an uphill, straightaway 355-yard par 4. An ideal drive will find the right side of the fairway for a perfect approach angle. There really are no obstacles on #10, so with two good shots and a putt, you'll start the back side off the right way with a birdie.

Mountain View closes with a slight dogleg left, 495-yard par 5. Two left fairway bunkers need to be steered away from if you have hopes of reaching this green in two. With a long drive, a fairway wood remains into a large green. Three fairway bunkers within the last hundred yards are eager to catch any bounding drives headed for eagle territory. Further, there's a small bunker right of the green.

The large putting surface can leave long eagle putts if reached in two. From that distance you'll most likely be left with a testy four-footer for birdie. Here's where you prove to your buddies that you're no Bernhard Langer by sinking it.

After your round, relax at the large, luxury clubhouse behind the #18 green or at the grill by the pro shop. Both offer tasty food for a reasonable price. Further, the clubhouse can be rented out or reserved for parties or group outings.

Mountain View Golf Club is one of Saddlebrooke's best courses for all players, ideal for either a family outing or a competitive match. Take that short drive north of Tucson and check it out.
