Troon, the leader in golf course management, development, and marketing, has been selected to manage Saddle Creek Golf Resort, a semi-private golf club in Copperopolis. Troon Golf, the resort and daily-fee club operations division of Troon, will manage the golf, restaurant, bungalow rentals, and club operations at Saddle Creek.

Located just east of Stockton in the rolling foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Saddle Creek Golf Resort features an 18-hole, Carter Morrish-designed golf course and expansive Lodge. The course opened in 1996 and has since appeared on numerous must-play lists of top courses in California. Stretching more than 6,800 yards, the course winds its way through natural lakes and streams while delivering incredible views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and nearby Yosemite National Park.

“We look forward to working together with Troon to realize the exciting changes to the golf and hospitality operations at Saddle Creek,” said Mike Fletcher of CV Development Partners, LLC, new developers of Saddle Creek.

Seventeen on-site bungalows allow for golfers to enjoy a variety of multi-round stay and play packages. Each bungalow offers a master suite with its own private bath, a second bedroom and bath, a kitchen and a great room with a fireplace. The Copper Grille Restaurant, located in the Resort’s Lodge, is open daily for breakfast and lunch, and for dinner Thursday through Saturday.

“Saddle Creek is a beautiful club and community located on the doorstep of Yosemite National Park,” said Darrell Morgan, vice president, operations, Troon.“The golf course and amenities here are outstanding. Troon is looking forward to working with ownership and the onsite team to further elevate operations, food and beverage, agronomy and the overall experience.”

Golf and Sports Club memberships are available at Saddle Creek and are optional for residents of the surrounding Saddle Creek community. For more information on Saddle Creek Golf Resort, visit or call 209-753-0574.
