The Madden Golf Course is a municipal course that is suitable for all skill levels. The course was built on hilly terrain causing some elevation changes and uneven lies. The fairways are lined with trees and the average-sized greens are medium to fast in speed. Sand bunkers are present on the course and there are also water hazards that come into play on eight holes. The course starts with a challenging par-5, which requires an approach shot over a creek to a green that is well protected by a sand bunker in front. The Madden Golf Course facility also boasts a putting green and teaching pro.

I played with a group who were of the same playing ability as me and who had also never been to the course before. We all had a really good time, I’ll definitely be coming back!!

We paid in advance for 18 and a cart. When we arrived we had to walk because it was to wet. The cart paths were not flooded, so cart path only would have been fine and no discount was given for having to walk.

Not a bad course but not a great course either. Bring a range finder with you so you know the distance to the drainage ditches.

Greens were in decent shape, tee boxes were a little rough and hard and the fairways had a lot of thin and bare patches.

Worth playing, though, as long as you don't pay too much!!!

Play the course this morning and the staff did not let me know there was a league that started the back nine. I had to wait an hour to tee off after I finished the front. I waited every hole to tee off. The staff has got to recognise this issue.

The back 9 tee boxes need cut extremely bad , the are level with the surrounding grass. Bunkers need turned more regularly, at least the got sand in them this year. Greens are extremely difficult to putt, they need slowed down. I play this course weekly for a work golf league.
