Saddle Hills DGC -- Now 18 holes!

Not only the site of the January BT challenge but now the course is a full 18. Rich Tharp, parks director for White settlement, has been instrumental in seeing this course reach it full potential. After the success of the nine original holes he contacted Funkytown board member, Brandon Melton of IOM design to walk the recently acquired land and evaluate its potential for another nine holes. Although, as with most available land, some areas presented real challenges for rainy seasons and potential flooding but it was agreed it could be done. As with most courses, upgrades and improvements are needed but we have another course in the ground and with a local presence looking to raise awareness it is hoped a course fund can be established to be put toward concrete pads and more.
