Best course for the price in the valley. Greens are a little slow but very nice and run true. Very well kept around the fairways, sand traps are like concrete, no sand just dirt with rocks. Very easy course to play and work on your game

If you can get out here for under $30 it's great, unless it's been raining recently. Whoever designed this course did not plan for rain/drainage, so parts of the course end up unplayable at times. Bunkers are always lacking sand. Staff is friendly and helpful, aside from the woman in the clubhouse.

The pace of play was slowed when the 2some and 4some combined for a several holes in front of us. They did break it up but pace had slowed considerably and ended taking longer than necessary. I believe if they had a Marshall this probably would not have happened! Otherwise everything else was good.

After playing at this course for over a year now, it has improved. First off the tee boxes are always in good condition. The fairways are 95% green with some yellow spots. Greenside bunkers have drainage systems so water doesn’t collect. They do have a thin layer of sand although more sand would be ideal. Greens are in excellent condition besides some golfers not fixing their divots. Friendly staff paired with good food in the club house. Pace of play is steadily moving, Sunday’s is when pace slows downs a bit. Overall great course. Will continue to play here every chance I get.

Not sure what tee boxes you were looking at, but the #1 tee especially is an uneven mess.

We are senior golfers and play from the senior tees.

The course is set up perfectly for us. The staff at the course have always been great and friendly. We look forward to playing at Madera and will keep this course in our weekly rotation.

In my short 4 months in the Central Valley this course has been my go to place. Proximity to me plus the value are always a plus but quite frankly it's a relatively nice course with a challenging course. Never ever super crowded so the pace is perfect. The greens were punched already so we are good to go. A little slow yesterday. Try it, you will be surprised.
