Sometimes you get shut out and you work to make the most of it. I have a love affair with the Maderas Golf Club and have been planning a shoot at Maderas for a few weeks now. I was positive that the marine layer would be nowhere to be seen.... El Nino had a different idea and left me socked in with little visibility when we arrived. I quickly shifted gears and embraced the mood of the landscape. I decided to shoot black and white to make the most of the tones and ended up having a blast!

Tucked in canyons of inland San Diego and the town of Poway, it's a very different side of San Diego.  One of only two golf courses in San Diego on Golf Digest's Top 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses list, golf publications and players alike continue to tip their hat in respect, making Maderas one of the top rated San Diego golf courses. Award winning conditions, services and amenities tell a true Southern California story.

Maderas delivers amazing conditions, superior service and excellent amenities - each inspired by the things that make Southern California and San Diego remarkable. A combination of golf strategy and design mastery, this Johnny Miller and Robert Muir Graves design takes the concept of upscale golf to exhilarating levels. Beauty and challenge are both here, as holes wind through the cliffs, rock outcroppings, creeks, and forests of the inland country of north San Diego. Torrey Pines, gets a lot of attention, but Maderas is by far the hotter sister of the two.
