Question for the group here:

When you played Maderas for the first time, did you opt for a caddy?

Could you share some of your experience about your first time- positive or.. anything?

Thanks in advance.

One of my favorite courses. Love the up/down rolling hiils and the large, challenging greens.

I have played there on both Forelinx and used Underpar prepaid vouchers. Never used a caddy. If they are even available on a daily basis, it was not made apparent when I made the tee time or checked in.

The goal has always been long and straight! But since I can no longer hit them long, hopefully straighter could be achieved more than occasionally?

I have played there many times and I have never seen a caddy there. The carts have GPS and the yardage book offers everything else you can think of. I would say no need for a caddy.

You can get a forecaddie or a caddie with 24 hour notice. I found the yardage book got me through just fine. I really enjoyed the course.

No caddy for me. It is not a course with hidden shots, and the greens are not full of hidden breaks. No real reason for a caddy unless you just want to splurge.

Terrific course, have fun!

I wouldn't advise getting a caddie, but I strongly (respectfully) disagree with sparky14's assessment of the greens. Maderas has the trickiest-to-read greens of just about anywhere I've played.

I also seem to remember a blind tee shot with water in play but I could be mistaken.

they are definitely large, undulating, and have many multiple tiers. not sure about tricky to read but three putts are easily had by all.
