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!

The greens are the most important aspect of any course. These were slow and too soft, but the layout is what makes this course, it is a thinking mans course, plenty of trouble for errant shots, plenty of water, and speaking of water the ice machine is broke and out of commission, so you have to go to the snack bar for ice and water, and they have an Igloo plastic container and a scoop for ice, the water was downright disgusting, like the plastic is leaching into the water, it was really gross, I had the bartender tell me they clean it everyday, blah blah....bottom line? FIX THE MACHINE, this is Florida I expect free, clean drinking water wherever I go to play.

Very enjoyable layout with several doglegs and many holes with water. Greens were in good condition but slow. Several fairways had bare spots. GPS in the carts was definitely a plus.

Madison Green is a fun course. There are some tricky holes that will make you do some thinking and require you full attention. The greens are good. If they were a litt woulrr be really good. Great value for Sola during the high season. I’m 7 handicap and would say it’s one of the better public courses around .

Course is above average condition for most southeast Florida courses. But the course has water which comes into play on nearly every hole. This requires the correct club selection and accuracy. Actually found limited use of driver on this course. If you do play bring extra balls

Locker room is decent but bar /food area is limited. Small pro shop.

The course appears to be in need of better grooming. Weeds and some worn spots abound. The greens are pocked with brown spots from balls striking them. There are a fair number of water hazards on the course, that, shouldn't be a huge issue except that they sit very low and the fairway and rough drops sharply to the water. Any ball hit a bit off course will find itself rolling rapidly into the water, thus narrowing the effective width of the fairways.

The electric powered carts have very useful GPS systems, the staff was great, and the club house was very pleasant for post play relaxation.

On balance it was a good experience, but some TLC needed.

It's a very nice course bordering on great. It is a bit difficult though for a bogey golfer. Really worth the money.

You can tell once upon a time Madison Green was a private club. Nice challenging layout although be ready for a full round of hitting to spots. Greens were a bit fury and slow but other than that the course was in nice shape. My big issue with this course is pace of play. They always book the tee times way too close. Don’t expect a round in under 5 hours. I’d actually prefer is they raised prices a bit and spread things out like most nicer clubs.

For the cost, this was a good value even though the course was a little stressed in places. The layout is challenging in that water comes into play on many of the holes so it helps to be straight and accurate.

Staff was very friendly and fun bar afterwards.
