Scottsdale, Ariz. – Not long after being selected as one of San Diego’s best wedding venues by The Union-Tribune’s “Best of San Diego Readers’ Poll,” Maderas Golf Club, in Poway, Calif. received recognition in Southland Golf’s annual Hot 100 list for offering the “Best Golf Experience.”

The Johnny Miller-designed course was praised by the respected publication for offering “a country-club-like setting and a heck of a golf course.” The annual “Hot 100” list was featured in Southland Golf’s recent “Best of Southern California Golf Issue.” The list honors the best courses, clubhouses, and golf resorts that the magazine refers to as the “lifeblood of golf in the region.” The “Hot 100” focused on daily-fee golf facilities, demonstrating that great golf experiences in Southern California are not exclusive to private clubs.

“Maderas Golf Club is thrilled to be recognized for delivering the “Best Golf Experience” in Southern California,” stated Bill O’Brien, general manager, Maderas Golf Club. “The team is truly focused on creating unique and memorable golf and dining experiences through undivided attention and easy elegance. Guests have come to expect such authenticity from the club in its rich, 10-year history.”

Maderas Golf Club, designed as a collaborative effort by Johnny Miller and Robert Muir Graves, is set within a secluded valley in the rolling hills of north San Diego, just 25 minutes from downtown. Considered a classic, the meandering creeks, massive rock outcroppings and crashing waterfalls create a world-class challenge in a setting of breathtaking beauty.
