Maderas

Played the Blues (73.6/137/6670) using Forelinx. Matched up with Jeff, first out playing at a leisurely pace of 4 1/2 hours after a frost delay of 90 minutes. The weather warmed up and was very pleasant by the end of the round.

2nd time playing here, liked the layout, design and conditions even more than the first visit, when I thought things were outstanding.

Hilly course with several tees a good distance from the last green, this would be a very challenging to walk. You cannot get off the beaten path on this layout or your ball is gone and you are adding penalty strokes. However, most fairway landing areas are generous in size, not a super tight course.

The tees were lush overall, just a few par 3's needed divot attention.

The fairways were excellent and played nice.

The rough had good coverage and could be penal.

The traps were immaculate and played well.

The greens are large, undulating and many have tiers. You could easily have a 100+ foot putt on multiple greens on this course. They putted medium fast, smooth and were firm. VERY nice!

The layout, design, difficulty and especially the conditions were all well above average. Many very high end homes are high up on hills looking down on the course, the scenery and the views were both stimulating.

The customer service was excellent, especially Daniel, an Assistant Pro in the Pro Shop. Excellent practice facility that is included with the golf price. Definitely recommended, especially if you can get a deal.

Well worth the money

Course is in fantastic shape for the end of the season fairways and rough are pristine. Greens ran a little slow but are true and honestly I liked them a lot . Staff was incredible big kudos to the starter fantastic gentleman. All in all a great day on the golf course and we’ll worth the money all year round would love to play this course mid season to see how great it is. Great layout and a really good challenge for anyone like me who doesn’t like to play the same course over and over.

PS: for all you military members out there they offer a fantastic military discount, me and my buddy are both active and got a great price on a Friday (and holiday) I would recommend this course to any serious golfer in the area.

Worth The Trip

Spending a few days in the SD area and played Maderas with a friend, and was very happy we did. Very nice course with great layout and very good conditions. Nice value as most of the higher end courses in SD are expensive. Looking forward to coming back

Amazing Experience!!

This establishment is top notch !! Drove out here from AZ just to play this course. The hospitality I received from the baggage drop guys, pros shop, the starter and restaurant servers was incredible. The starter , wish I knew the gentleman’s name, but WOW! He was a total professional. I was paired up with another single, who was a member at Maderas. I couldn’t have chosen a better person to play my first round with at this course. He (Eric ) was so helpful and hospitable as well. Thank you Maderas for a memorable round!! Will be back soon!!

Maderas 10/20

One of my favorite layouts in SD, in near pristine conditions. Best staff & atmosphere in SD.
Extra fees for water & golf bag handling a bit much for an already high-end course!
Greens were unexpectedly slow, really threw us off.
Gotta love the icy towels on a warm day in Poway.

Walked

Great Day Walking Course

Course was in excellent condition. Fairways were plush and greens were in excellent condition. Pace of play was slow waiting on most tee boxes. Walking with pull cart was not easy. If walking, it's better to carry bag. Course management was very accommodating. Bring extra balls for going over water and canyons.

I booked this course on line, it met my expectations. It was a good playable course, the staff was friendly and the course was in great condition.

I will definitely play it again when I travel to the San Diego area.

Little Beauty !!

Stunning layout and surroundings. Well kept course that will test your ability to play from every kind of lie, uphill, downhill, side hill, you’ll get them all . Great fairways, tees and greens and GPS in the buggies. Ice cold towel at the end of the round was a lovely touch on hot day to. I would highly recommend playing Maderas and with about 5 different tees to choose from it can suit any level of player.

Almost perfect

My wife and I played this absolutely beautiful course and truly enjoyed the layout , staff and facilities. My one complaint would be the one maintenance staff running the pull behind blower, from the second hole to the fifth he was right there with us on every shot, and on one hole he even was nice enough to park next to the green as we proceeded to putt with the blower humming along. We are not pro,’s and no money on the line, it was just disappointing that he’d did not know better and to stay with one group for and ruined the expensive of those holes. All in all I would recommend this course ( without the blower).
