Maderas Golf Club
Absolutely beautiful course int the hills of SoCal. Nice elevations. Course was in great condition. Unfortunately it was a constant misting rain which is very unusual for this area. We donned our rain gear and slogged it out anyway, and it was still worth it. The views are normally amazing.

Very nice day on the course
Friendly staff welcomed us and showed us around. Pratice facilities in great conditions with coffee at driving range. Few putts (should have done more) on putting greenm got instructions at first hole and went on for a great round of golf with friends. Only downside, playing threesomes behind a foursome has an impact of playing and waiting times. First nine was OK in 2:15 but went on longer thereafter. Great to play a round of golf in November anyway for someone who is looking at snow at this time of the year. Great experience overall, great staff and great course conditions. Definitely a must play.

A Must Play in San Diego
Excellent in every way.
From the gentleman who greets you and bag drop to the car girl, staff was first class.
Golf course was perfect but very challenging.
Can't wait to play it again

Outstanding Mountain Golf
Played 3 rounds 3 days in a row in SD and this course was in the most outstanding condition of all 3 and the other courses were top notch selections as well. The views are incredible on almost every hole. The golf course is a gem!
SD is indeed a top 50 golf city destination and if coming to play definitely put this course on your list.

Challenging Course with great views
The staff is always friendly and very attentive. If you are looking for good food along with golf, then this is also your place. The course conditions were very good to excellent and the greens played the same throughout the course. The views are always incredible as well. The only knock is the price, it can be pretty expensive, depending on when you play, so bring your wallet. However, if you love the course, they do have a great membership program that can help cut the costs a little. At the very least, it's worth going to play there if you've never been. You won't regret it.
It is a challenging course, so if you have a high handicap or are spraying the ball around, play the forward tees and maybe put the driver away. There aren't a lot of places to miss. That being said, the course generally plays fair. The only hole that gets a bit hokey is the 8th. It could do without the giant tree at the end of the water. The hole is hard enough already.
Bunkers generally play really soft, almost a beach sand. They also have some steep ones, so be sure to feel good about your bunker game. Greens typically play fast, but depending on the hole placement, are usually fair.
Carts are great and the beverage cart is top notch! Cart paths are well marked and well maintained as well.
Fairways are currently green and well maintained. Greens are always impeccable. The rough can get a little brutal at times, making it hard to find your ball, but hopefully you hit enough fairways so it isn't a problem.
The course is a precision course, so be sure to check the layout of holes and try to use the geography to help you. Pay attention to what is behind greens and don't be afraid to lay up. If you do this, you'll have a great day! Also be sure to hit the 19th hole for food and drinks. Drinks are bit pricey, but they don't cheap out on the pours and the food is top notch! Worth every penny! Overall, you can have a really great day of gold at Maderas.
