Saddlebrook Golf Club was an anchor for the neighborhood until it closed in 2015 due to a default on a loan. The neighborhood started a capitol campaign that allowed for Green Golf Partners, a golf course management group, to purchase Saddlebrook and bring it back to its former glory. During its closure, the greens, fairways and grounds were subject to extensive damage, requiring a lot of construction. One such feature was a tunnel that passed below 56th street and connected the 2 different sections of the course.
Green Golf coordinated with the city as 56th street runs above the tunnel to make the “unusable” tunnel functional again. The entrances to the tunnel consisted of old railroad tie timber walls that were in desperate need of repair.
