Slopey and challenging

Played with 3 buddies who had played the course several times--even with their help, stepped into a few snares built into the course. Assuming Johnny Miller responsible for the snares. Most of the tee shots are semi-uncomfortable to me--blind shots, small targets, sloped fairways. Sometimes all three! I was striking ball OK on this day--but still ended up in 7 hazards (!). Bring extra balls. All that said, the course is beautiful and well-maintained. Greens are very slopey, but running slow on the day I played. Still tough. I'd really like a second try at this one--learned a lot from round 1. $120 is upper end of what I like to spend, a splurge for sure.

A day/course to remember!

We played the course in Februari , on a coldish and windy day. Admired the design, undulating through the valley in a natural way, very well maintained fairways with beautiful (sometimes too) fast greens. Very friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere: in short a perfect day which we will remember for a long time!

One of the best in SD county.

Great course top to bottom.

Conditions are always good regardless of time of year which is nice.

Ya it’s a bit pricey for public courses in the area buts it’s a troon course and much cheaper than most troon courses. Also, you know what you’re getting which is a great conditioned course with lightning fast greens and great customer service.

Must play if you’re in the area!

sunny Maderas

fast large challenging greens, great terrain changes, yardages for all handicaps were available. the grass on the fairways was thin and in great condition for the season. numerous fairway and greenside bunkers were all in great condition. Beautiful clubhouse and 19th hole after the round too.

Pleasure to play

Played the course twice. Great layout and lots of elevation. Greens are big and really fast with lots of undelations. Played Steel Canyon and their greens were 11.5. The greens at Maderas were faster. A must play golf course.

Great layout but challenging

Based on player reviews we chose Maderas for a weekend round. We were not disappointed. The conditions, even in winter, were excellent. The greens were very fast, but true and in great shape. The layout was very interesting, with many elevation changes, and a strong variety of shorter and longer holes. The only drawback was the GPS on the cart was not working, but we did switch it out at the turn.There was a very slow group in front of us, but the marshals did a fine job in keeping them moving.

Made the right choice

I was debating between four courses for my one round of golf in the San Diego area and I certainly made the right choice. I was lucky enough to get paired with a member who was a really great guy, which made the experience even better. The course was in very good condition, greens were quick and rolled consistently. The difficulties at this course is getting off the tee as optically the shot look more difficult than they are and the area around the greens is tightly mown. I was a little surprised at the lack of pushing people along by the rangers and that the course allowed t-shorts on the course but other than that it was a great experience. If you only have time for one round in the SD area I would certainly recommend this course.

Hit them straight

Hit them straight, Because some of the driving holes are unbelievably tight. Plus a couple greens fall right off into the Cliffs. Greens are in great shape staff was friendly and overall the course was fun
