Start your round on the Blue Nine from elevated, large and level tee boxes. The rolling fairway sits below and runs slightly downhill with medium length rough. Bunkers have real sand and are equipped with multiple rakes while the fringe is maintained quite well. This green is medium size and speed with a elevated, rolling, and receptive feel.

Red: 268 yds

Things get tighter on this par 4. From level, medium size tees it is imperative to find the rolling fairway with your tee shot. The fairway doglegs left and runs downhill. It is tree-lined with medium rough. Real sand bunkers that have a few small rocks in them and a maintained fringe are at the small green. The green surface is receptive and runs at a medium pace.

Saskatoon Golf Club, Blue Course Hole 8

Hole 8 – Par 3 – Rating 7.20

Red: 126 yds
Gold: 136 yds
White: 151 yds
Blue: 168 yds

We consider hole 8 the blue courses signature hole. It is unique. From large and level tee boxes, you can see the problem. Accuracy is a must. Right is a hill that is shaggy and refuses to kick your ball out in a preferred direction, and left, well, that’s no man’s land. Expect no bunkers but there is water well left. The green is large with a maintained fringe. It is also a tougher putting green with a crowned surface that is receptive and rolling. It putts at a medium speed.

Saskatoon Golf Club, Blue Course Hole 9

Hole 9 – Par 4 – Rating 7.14

Red: 362 yds
Gold: 372 yds

The final hole has elevated, large, level tee blocks. The rolling fairway doglegs right and runs uphill. The rough is medium length and the bunkers are real sand with the fairway bunkers in great shape. A maintained fringe skirts the medium size green with a receptive feel and a medium putting pace.

Overall Course Rating: 7.44
