Madrona Links Golf Course
Madrona Links Golf Course first opened in 1978, and has since become one of the most active clubs in the Puget Sound area. Located in Gig Harbor, the course is conveniently located on the peninsula with easy access to Tacoma Narrows and Highway 16. The layout has a classic links design that is player friendly enough for players of all skill levels. Small, deep bunkers frame both the greens and fairways. Madrona Links requires accuracy, but it's not overly punishing if you're slightly errant. With only gently rolling hills, the golf course is an easy walk. At just over 5,600 yards from the back tees, it's relatively short but you will still face some challenging shots. This popular course is one of the best values in the area.

Fun little joint
Like many courses in WA state, Madrona Links is a smaller course with a group of par 4s on the short side. Madrona makes up for this with fast greens that break consistently. 150 yard range and putting green are right next to hole 1, no need for a cart. Overall, it was a fun little round that tests your putting on each green. Plus, Gig Harbor is a cool retreat.
Concrete Greens! Meh Clubhouse staff
Yesterday was an odd experience! My foursome for reasons had to bail. the course was of course angry we didn't let him no sooner! The short range is annoying. I was using balls from the 90's. The guy in the clubhouse could have been nicer. I couldn't use anything over a 7 iron...And they start you on a par five. The course was pretty greens were rock hard...made the day less enjoyable! would be in the middle of a fairway and have a shot with the ball up around my belly button. I golf a lot of Municipal courses and was very disappointed start to finish. Probably wont be back!
Easy course and good pace
This course was maintained better than average. The staff and facilities were about average. The course layout was a little boring. There is a part with sloping fairways that go toward out of bounds. I find this annoying. Too many of the holes were straight short par 4s. A few interesting bunkers, but nothing surprising and not much elevation change.
The players leave balls laying everywhere because of the number of money games on this course. Pace of play was good! Very good rates!
Great Condition for this time of year.
Perfect day for golf, course in very nice condition even after all the snow, pace of play was under 4 hours.
Shorter than most from the white tees, but this course has adequate challenges.
Well kept, short course
Greens were in great condition for time of year, course is a little short. Went early and finished under 3 hours.
We had a great time
Greens were perfect and we finished in 3 hours with 3 people. Only drawback is it was a little soft in a few places but other than that it was a great round.
Even on a wet or foggy day
The course shines even in fog or saturated with rain. Fun, challenging and the effort the crew puts into the grounds shows through even in sub par weather conditions.
Played course recently still a little sandy great value for the money
well it was a fun course but to slow of play if you are a long ball hitter
Lots of Trees
A lot of tree-lined fairways, especially on the front. Need to hit the ball straight or it could be a tough round of golf. The course is not long, but keeping the ball in the fairway is huge and the greens were in great shape with a lot of slopes, but they putted true.
