With over 200 courses in Palm Beach County, architect John Sandford knew he would have to create something special to get attention. At Madison Green Country Club he did just that, creating a unique course that combines many of the best features from local courses, with a few surprises all its own.

Over a thousand palm trees line the course as do over 100 bunkers and 42 acres of shimmering lakes.

One very interesting aspect of the design is that not only does the course get longer as you move back in tees, but the shot angles also get increasingly challenging. This means that the good player not only has further to hit but must also place the ball more accurately on the fairway in order to set himself up for his next shot.

A young teen, his father, his mother and even his grandfather playing together from four different sets of tees will all experience a fair challenge for their respective games that still remains enjoyable!

Great course.

The fairways were a little wet due to rain yesterday but the layout was outstanding. It really made you think about each shot. You can just use the driver on all par4s and 5s.

If you didn’t quadruple book the 9:00 time and double book the 9:07 it would have been much more enjoyable. Even with the punched greens the greens rolled good, which is expected in the summer!

Course is very nice, in great condition, both fairways and greens. It has 5 sets of tees to moke it playable for all handicaps, and is fairly challenging on some of the holes, but fair - no "tricked up" holes. Carts have GPS which is a big help especially if you've never played the course. Overall a very enjoyable course and great value for the money. Definitely recommended !

This course is in great condition compared to many public courses in the county with beautiful fairways and greens. The layout is really tough and is a shot makers course with water left and right. Although it’s a good course for me it’s not fun to play. It’s slow pace usually taking 4-5 hours to play and unless you’re a scratch golfer you’ll no doubt put a ball or two, or three, or four in the water. I personally need something fast and that gives me a chance if I don’t hit the ball like a tour player. But if you’re up for the challenge it’s a great course.

The course is well maintained and the staff is very friendly. I did not carry for the course over all. The fairways are very tight and a lot of them are very hilly. A lot of the tee boxes are in front of some kind of hazard and it is hard to tell where to hit your ball to. Does not make for an enjoyable round when you have to keep looking at the map or GPS to figure out which direction to hit to.

Course is in great condition! Great value through golfnow.com. You could easily pay 3x more for a comparable course. I travel 50 minutes from ft lauderdale and it’s well worth it. Book a ttime...you won’t regret it. Course definitely has teeth...so play the correct tee box.
