Maderas Golf Club Aces Rankings
Local Maderas Golf Club was recently named among the Top 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses according to Golf Digest. The annual list was first established in 1966 and is curated according to aesthetics, ambience, conditioning, design variety, difficulty, memorability, and shot values. The panel of experts behind the rankings play each course and score them in each category, with an emphasis on upholding the game’s traditional values. The best courses have an overall continuity to all 18 holes while still incorporating a great variety of design between individual holes.
This is the second year in a row that Maderas has been named on the list. The winding course was designed by Johnny Miller and Robert Muir Graves. Inclusion in the list of the top 100 public courses has considerably increased the nationwide interest in the course. “It’s a great indication that we’re doing the right things for the right people with great support from our owners,” said Maderas General Manager Michael Flickinger. He credited the golf course’s staff as a whole for their exemplary dedication.
“We also take great pride in supporting our community and local charities by hosting a variety of fundraising tournaments and events each year,” shared Michael. Such events have included a mini-golf tournament for the One Small Voice Foundation, the Poway Chamber of Commerce’s Mickey Cafagna Memorial Golf Classic, and dinner auction events for local schools. Up to 300 guests can enjoy sweeping views of the course from the Del Lago ballroom and garden. Michael continued, “In the past three years, these events have helped raise millions of dollars for local nonprofit organizations.”
