Fast Greens

Played on 5/12. Course is in great shape. Greens are really quick and mostly roll fairly true. Pace pretty good. Went out as a 2. One group let us play thru and the pace was awesome. Had to wait on the last 3 holes which was a bummer but overall great day.

Bring your A game

This is probably the hardest course I have ever played. However, It's so fast and dry that you might actually be rewarded for a bad shot that bounces out of the rough and onto the.fairway. Four stars only because of recent aerifiication. Arrive early so you can take advantage of the phenomenal practice facility. It's the best I've ever seen including the one at Sawgrass.

Great course, great day

Got a great deal due the greens being punched. That did little to spoil this great course. This course is just AWESOME! I’d play here everyday if I could. The best it gets in SD County.

Five Stars Across the Board!!! Fantastic Course!!!

Maderas is one of the nicest courses in Southern California. I drove about 80 miles to get there and easily would’ve driven twice that far for the all around quality at Maderas. Everything about our round was great. Everyone from the bag drop guy, pro shop guy to the starter and cart girl were very friendly and helpful. Pace of play was great. We never had to wait over a shot, nor did we have anyone pushing us from behind throughout our entire round. Course was in immaculate condition and very well marked. Some GPS systems on carts seem to be more accurate than others. The GPS at Maderas is very accurate and helpful from tee thru green. I have zero complaints about this course and I would highly recommend Maderas.

always good

Got a good rate due to recent aerification. Otherwise the course was in it's usual excellent condition. This course can be difficult for mid and
high handicappers. if you aren't hitting it straight bring extra balls.

Great value even with aerated greens

My group showed up knowing that the greens had recently been aerated. The greens still rolled great and this course is a great value at the discounted rate when they aerate the greens. I would play this course again in a heartbeat

Beautiful AND difficult

Course was in fabulous condition, personnel were great, TONS of undulation on fairways and greens....a couple of holes were borderline absurd! (Be sure to bring extra balls!) Still greatly enjoyed the round and would play it again.

A challenging course

This course is top notch in service and conditions. Playability-wise, it is for players who think their way through a round and play strategically. You must.
The back is tougher than the front. Be aware of the sloping fairways.

Very challenging

We played for half off which was really nice and definitely made it worth it. I live in north Phoenix and it would be better than average out there but for San Diego it is top notch. Definitely challenging and will test your layup skills. The greens are very hard but fun when I say hard I mean difficult

This is a truly amazing course. I hadn't ever played it due to the higher price but had always wanted to(.i used promo for 50%off) From the minute you arrive, you are treated like royalty! A cart was brought out to my car to load up my clubs and welcome me to the course. The starter was very helpful and gave me advice on what tees to play..The course conditions were great even after much rain over the last 2 weeks. Greens really rolled nicely. The layout was a great mix and I never got bored. I will come back as often as I can. They also offered free range balls so get there early.They have great GPS on the cart that measured to the pin for the day.4 hour and 20 minute round.

Best we have played in Southwest California

Played early afternoon and conditions were excellent for golf. The course is magnificent in the layout and design. Many opportunities for lost balls if you try to cut corners. Picking the correct set of tees important (17 handicapper off the white tees and ladies 28 off the red ) in making the course playable.
All staff were extremely hospitable and added to the enjoyment of the 4 hour round.

Love the layout

I am from MA, but visit my sister in San Diego a few times a year. Maderas is one of my favorite courses to play. The conditions are always great, and the course is very challenging, but I love the layout anyway. It can be a bit pricey, but the hot deal made it a relative bargain.

Showed up and was told we had been "double booked" and that we would have to tee off later. Were sent off on the back nine which was fine but when we turned onto the front, it was backed up. Group in front of us was extremely slow with no Marshall the entire day to keep pace up. Saw beer cart once all day. Staff was ok, not great.
Not worth full price to play here.
