Maderas is definitely a must play
Great course with a lot of different looks. Conditions weren’t peak but still always really good. Tough for high handicappers but very challenging and fair for mid to low handicappers. Greens when not punched are fantastic. Always enjoy playing Maderas. Great practice facilities to work on game before and after. San Diego gem. One of my favorites as a San Diego resident.
San Diego County Gem
This was my first time playing Maderas and it was a great day. The course was in good shape (the greens were still in recovery from having been punched and sanded) and they didn’t roll as true as they might, but overall it’s a wonderful and challenging test of shotmaking skills. Not a bomber’s paradise by any stretch. The facility is terrific, the staff was like private country club staff, and the grill has excellent food. I had the burger, and it was superb.
Can’t wait to go back
Well worth it
I don’t normally write post round reviews but felt inclined to make an exception this time. I was traveling from AZ to San Diego and wanted to play a good course. Maderas didn’t disappoint. Not only that, I would put it as one of my favorites now in this area.
The course requires precise shots. Johnny Miller is a master at layout. The views are great and you really get a feel for the hillsides of San Diego. The holes are all very unique and fun to play. The greens were fantastic and are faster than they look. The fairways were clean and smooth. Everything was great about this place. The staff were friendly and I had no issue teeing off early and finishing in 3 hrs as a single.
Will definitely play again some time.
This course is 5-star across the board. The layout is incredibly well done and although it was definitely a hike I would highly encourage folks to walk this course. This course features some incredibly dramatic elevation changes and by walking this course you are able to truly appreciate how intricate yet overpowering the landscape the architects had to be.
A lot of dirt had to be moved simply to clear out enough space for this course but there course does a tremendous job of bending into the natural terrain. This is easily the best desert course I have played (which includes TPC Scottsdale and all the top PGA West Courses).
Super friendly and attentive staff, top-notch conditions and an all-around great experience. No hole even came close to resembling another and there isn't a single hole out here that wasn't architecturally interesting. If I lived in SoCal I would become a member here and never play another course.
Very easy to see why this course was once rated in GDs Top 100 and I think you'd be hard-pressed to find 100 other public courses across the country that can compete with Maderas.
Would recommend this course to everyone. Challenging, and demanding at times, but a fair test.
Excellent conditions, greens were consistent in speed and fairway was great where it needed to be.
Wonderful golf course
This is the nicest course I have played in North County. Nice courses are more expensive but Maderas GC is definitely worth it!
Monday at Maderas
Fabulous golf course
Fairways recently cross cut, so discounted round - a great value for the money
I drive 70 miles from Orange County to play this course - and will continue to do so; fabulous track !!!!!
A scorcher, but great track and friendly staff
First, it was the hottest day this Summer in Poway. Temp read 115 when I parked. Staff are always super friendly and rate on GolfNow was 60% discounted on a Friday. It was a great value, played in under 4hrs, and everyone from starter, to beer cart lady, to green keepers, to bar staff super nice and friendly. Only bummer was twosome on 18 took crazy long to finish, but what can you do. Wouldn’t have mattered much if it wasn’t 115 in the shade. It’s a great track, the keep it watered well, and greens are always fast and difficult. I love playing here with you can get a reasonable deal, it’s expensive for what it is retail.
DISABLED GOLFERS BEWARE!!!
Expect lots of walking, as many greens are inaccessible by cart. Wild, hilly landscape.
Saw a golf now deal for $55. Didn’t see hardly anyone on the course and played in 3.5 hours. Played blue tees (5 handicap). Thought the course was tough but fair. Greens were slower than I anticipated. Not worth $140-160 in my opinion but with a deal a great value
Great Bang for your buck.
Yeah the prices might be a little high to play Maderas, but you get what you pay for. Played 18 challenging holes. With lots of undulations on the greens, there were hardly any give me puts out there. Staff was great! Felt like I was a member for a day. Greens and fairways were emaculate. There’s virtually no rough either which was nice. You’re penalized for bad shots and rewarded for good ones. Would definitely go back and play again.
Loved this setup. I don't know, I have the feeling that Golf Courses in San Diego have totally forgot the service side of the Golf Experience. Arriving to this facility remembers me how cool golf is and my days at Puerto Rico. Staff is very friendly, course practice facilities is one of the best I have ever seen in San Diego area. Course is challenging, but you are surrounded by beautiful views through out the whole course. Green conditions and superb. Overall a great experience. Keep it up guys!
Excellent course condition
Great golf course design and it is in excellent condition. The practice facilities are VERY good and the staff is very friendly and helpful.
a very nice day
Good weather, friendly staff, challenging but playable course with interesting greens.
I have read about the course, and was excited to play it. Very nice course, layout and location! I use to live about 5 miles from the course, but it was not built then. Sorry I don't live close by now! It has a nice advantage for the ladies tees. I played about normal for me, so it helped with the tee placements. Great views.... the course was in very good condition. We were slowed down the last few holes waiting on a ladies tournament.. Great course for inland beauty!
