17750 Old Coach Rd
Poway, CA 92064-6621, United States

This highly-rated course (#1 in San Diego County by Zagat, 2003-05) winds through the inland hill country of north San Diego. Architect Robert Muir Graves (1930-2003) and consultant Johnny Miller designed the course with three lakes, five waterfalls, and over forty acres of native wildflowers.

The course is owned and operated by Troon Golf. Residential rates are lower than those shown below.

Maderas Golf Club is a hilly course tucked in a canyon housing community. The course has gotten a ton of accolades, but after playing it, I was not overly impressed. There are a lot of blind shots and you get poor framing from many of the tee boxes. There are certainly some pretty and interesting holes (5, 14, 18) but not nearly enough of them to command the green fee nor the praise. It's a test of golf, and luckily I was on my game so I shot my handicap, but I imagine a lot of people double or triple their handicap here and lose a lot of balls (In preparation for this, the pro shop gives you a sleeve of ProV1's with your green fee). As Troon courses go, you get friendly attentive service and everyone knows your name, but that isn't enough to make the golf course better. The course is not walkable. I don't mind target style golf courses in canyons, because they are usually secluded and peaceful, but this canyon style course had houses around the course (huge ones). Decent course, but really poor value.

One of my favorite courses in San Diego. A little expensive... well, very expensive, but it's great course and well worth the money. I wish they had GPS on carts for that amount of money through! Greens were in good shape, everybody is very polite, upscale crowd of golfers, great driving range, not too crowded on the course, so it was a great round of golf at moderate pace. Really enjoyed it, will come again!
