Golf Course Review Dragonfly Golf Club Madera California
Reviewed by: Alex326, Monterey, Ca
For the most part the course is the same as my last review a couple of months back. the main exception are the greens. They are starting to slip a bit and are in need of a dusting. I think Dragonfly only aerates their greens once a year. With this years closing of Fig Garden, the course is getting more play and it might (definitely) be time to starting sanding their greens twice a year. Other than the numerous pitch marks all was well.
Fairways, tee boxes and sand traps were good to go and in the same condition as my last review. $35 for a twilight round in the Valley (especially with the current conditions) is a bit steep. For the $39 prime time mid week specials it get bumped up to highly recommended.
Also: In the late afternoon there are a number of high school teams using this course for practice. We were stuck behind three groups who were brutally slow. Not sure why the coaches with them didn’t let us through.
I’m all about getting the kids out on the course. And that includes the newbies as well as the scratch High Schoolers about to embark on the PGA/LPGA (a la Noh). I think the course should just close down for a couple of hours like they do with mini tournaments and let the kids have it to themselves. Or start the rest of us on the back nine to mix in with the earlier finishers and let the HS have the front nine to themselves for a while. Just my thoughts is all.
