Zagat Survey is one of the biggest and most reputable ranking institution in the United States. When Zagat ranks it top, there is no reason not to believe that it indeed is the top. On another note, San Diego is home to some of the best golf courses in the country. Now, imagine the best among some of the best – what Zagat ranks highest among all of San Diego county’s roster of top caliber golf courses. This is the Maderas Golf Club. Now imagine what it feels like taking a golf vacation here.
The Maderas Golf Club has consistently ranked top in Zagat Survey since 2003. It has also never left the Top Courses lists of such huge golfing publications as Golf Digest as well as San Diego Magazine. Apart from that, golfers seek out this golf vacation destination that is gently tucked amid rolling hills and forests. Proof that there is something so special about it as golfers hungry for a quality game work hard to find this precious gem. The course is characterized by well-placed bunkers, stunning water hazards of three lakes and five waterfalls, a dramatic terrain, and 40 full acres of wildflower. All these combine to make the course as difficult as it is beautiful.
Course designers, Robert Muir Graves and Johnny Miller, worked their way to bring out the best layout in one of San Diego’s best locations for a golf trip haven. On top of all its beautiful characteristics, it also has complete amenities – from its Italian-style clubhouse to the state-of the-art practice greens. The Maderas Golf Club is by far the most popular course in the San Diego county, and is undoubtedly the best among the rest, as Zagat survey and almost every golfer have proven.
