Saddlebrook Resort Tampa, Florida

Welcome sign
It’s midnight, we arrived at Saddlebrook Resort about an hour ago after a great day of saying goodbye to friends in church. We are just like family. This is our last night in Florida before heading to the airport in the morning. Saying goodbye is never easy even if you starting an around the world adventure.

Our first stop (the first night as "nomads") was at a close friend's home and here is little doggy giving us a warm welcome. Imagine a friend giving up the best room in the house for us to stay for the night. That was heart warming and incredibly humbling.
The next few hours are going to be spent resting our head in this Florida resort. It’s a resort with a combination of luxury golf, tennis, spa, relaxing activities and a variety of food on site.

Saddlebrook Resort is home to two of Florida’s most picturesque golf courses, BannLynch Golf at the Saddlebrook Golf Academy and Saddlebrook Prepartory School. It is an ideal location for corporate group getaways, golf clinics for players of any age and skill and perfect for families and friends for a reunion.

The resort is well known as a tennis academy with budding young tennis players staying long-term or short-term with the preparatory school at the resort. You will find 45 tennis courts with all four Grand Slam surfaces and tennis programs and clinics for players of all age groups and levels.

Saddlebrook’s wooded property provides guests a serene placefor morning walks or evening runs. Most guests who are casual golfers or tennis players can choose to spend time and sample free tennis or golf clinics. Your fun does not end at the golf or tennis courts. There are adequate places for indulgence, like a relaxing spa, swimming in the beautifully designed pool or enjoying great meals at a variety of restaurants.
