I'm new to golf having started only 4 months ago. I came out here with a few friends on a friday morning. The staff was very friendly from the moment I entered the pro shop to check-in. I was a bit early so I went to the driving range while waiting for my friends to arrive. The driving range is... More

So we were told not to play Torrey Pines because it was torn up and in bad condition, and a local pro suggested trying Maderas golf Club because it was in the best shape out of all the local courses. WHAT AN UNDERSTATEMENT! This is one of best courses We've played in years, taking into consideration we played Paiute in... More

Greens in great shape. They have done a nice job of letting the areas out of play go brown. $85 for a 2:30 time for two and got around in under 4 hours midweek. This course is tight and interesting

I go frequently for lunch with friends or Wednesday Hamburger Night. Good food and service for moderate price. I love the view from the patio and look forward to the music/entertainment Wednesday nights.

This golf course needs simply one word that is "Amazing". The course management and service are excellent and very friendly. Club House offers many great foods. All the people who played with me were so happy to golf in Maderas. I will visit this course again when I visit San Diego.

Troon managed course - so you know it's well run. Johnny Miller design cut out of the rolling canyons that will definitely test your skills. Greens and fairways were in excellent shape, and all the staff was friendly and helpful. Definitely a place I'd play again and deserving of it's top rating by Golfweek magazine.

This is a Johnny miller design, I don't know who he thought was going to play this course but the greens were like putt putt golf, I found it impossible to putt them and I am a low handicapper, what are they thinking when they design a course like this," let me make the player feel stupid" and the pin...

This course for starters is very scenic and beautiful. If you truly are a golfer who likes challenges then this is your course, you will need to know each and everyone of your clubs and be able to decide which will be best for your shot. For beginners this course may make you change your mind on playing but also... More

Mother's Day Brunch was great, service, food, and view. The golf course background made it extremely pleasant and the staff was very attentive.
