Great Course

Played with my brother early August - both decent golfers (indexes 6-10) and have played many courses. Course was in excellent condition from tee to green. It's a Troon course and they generally have high standards. Lots of hills both up and down with fair but tight fairways and as a friend described to us wavy "Potato Chip" greens. Really liked the course, would be tough to walk - be warned. Only hole we didn't like is #8 which is a par 5 with a hidden tree literally in the middle of the fairway affecting your second shot. We weren't aware of the tree until after hitting what we thought were perfect drives we had no 2nd shot. Not sure how you would play the hole honestly. Beyond that the course is fun and a good challenge with some incredible views. Would like to play again if ever back. Maybe we can figure out #8 by then or they cut down the tree!

Beautiful layout, friendly people

In town for business and had a free day. Picked this course based on other reviews. I was actually late for my tee time, but the staff was very helpful in finding another opening for me. I really enjoyed the layout - lots of visuals and plenty of challenge. A little pricey maybe, but I’d certainly play there again if I get the chance.

Love Playing Maderas!

Course is in great condition and greens were rolling well! Struggled to keep the ball in play off the tee. Highlight of the day was hitting a three wood stiff on #15 from 240 out into the wind, and paid it off making the birdie putt from about six feet!!
