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.

Madrona is a short, but somewhat challenging course for amateur players like my friends and I. The prices are always competitive with other local courses, and the clubhouse drinks and food are affordable. Had maybe one negative interaction with a clubhouse attendant in a dozen or so trips, but other than that, very friendly staff. Driving range leaves something to be desired (150 yards).

This is a great course in the summer. The greens are still in great shape for December. Only issue during winter is the muddy conditions. I know it’s winter golf in the PNW so can’t complain too much but this and others like it (Allenmore, Meadow Park to name a few) just get so muddy during winter. The fairways and rough thin out and expose the lack of sand these courses were not built with. But a good pair of rain pants and rain jacket/shirt will keep the muck off you. Great GolfNow got deal to play too.

We got a “hot deal” which was a great deal. Got paired with another couple who matched us in skill so we had a very enjoyable day. It took us nearly 5 hours to complete our round. On the back 9 we had. 5th from the group behind join us as he got left by his partner. But we were playing at a steady pace until we got to the last few holes that were backed up. Was surprised they didn’t have a marshal checking out the pace. But we weren’t in a rush so had an enjoyable day.

This is a fun course, my wife is pretty new to the game and this course is very forgiving. My only complaint is that some of the holes are short (drive-able par fours) and we were hit into twice during the round with one missing my wife by inches and hitting our cart. They need something to let people on the tee box know when your clear.

Rained off and on and it was windy so tough conditions but course in great shape even with lots of water! The greens having been aerated recently are in great condition. Using a cart in these conditions you have to be respectful of the course.Not often can you finish in 2 and a half hours!
