Have you ever wanted to go golfing, literally in your own backyard? It's not unusual to see apartments or condos adjacent to a golf course, and soon, Solon's Saddleback Ridge will feature single-family dwellings, according to the Cedar Rapids Gazette.

There is an ownership change coming to Solon's Saddleback Ridge at the end of 2021

Steve Gordon is vice president of Iowa City-based AM Management. His group plans to build about 40 villa-style homes on the southwest part of the property. Construction is set to begin, pending city approval, in Spring 2022 and be completed within a year. More details on the target demographics for the villas are yet to come, but Gordon says it will be single-level and, perhaps best of all, maintenance-free.

It wasn't a coincidence that this group was chosen to take over ownership. AM Management envisions clubhouse updates and additional food and beverage options. Owner Ron Rushek, who is retiring, handpicked them because they "wanted to see it stay a golf course."

Saddleback Ridge in Solon is a fairly new course

Its website says it opened in the year 2000 and offers a "modern, full-length driving range, complete with all-natural turf hitting areas, multiple targets, and irrigated landing areas." Nice!
