    The Madison Club Golf Courses Review




    The Madison Clubs golf course is designed by the famous architect Tom Fazio and it sets next door so to speak to the Bob Hope Classic and PGA West in La Quinta California. In the (modest) words of its owner, the Madison golf course is a quaint and modest retreat, following the long tradition of Californian classic old line golf resorts. However, playing the Madison is a unique experience which must be savored with all your senses. To begin with, Tom Fazio was granted a free hand with designing the golf course , i.e. he had a limitless budget and a blank slate at his disposal. Thats why the 500 acres Madison golf course was developed for a cost of over 200 million dollars, though Fazio must be credited for his restraint, i.e. he didnt exaggerated in terms of bling,as theres no towering waterfall on the course, nor a mini volcano.

    However, there are flashes of extravagance here and there, for example this high end golf course features massive refrigeration systems buried under its bentgrass greens for keeping them cool and in pristine shape. The course is more substance than flash though, having an old school feel and look, offering beautiful views, though the course lacks a desert surrounding, despite its location. The architect imported 3500 mature trees for creating a lush natural sanctuary and moved more than five million cubic yards of dirt, as the idea from the beginning was to make players forget theyre playing in the desert. Featuring 7400 yards of golf from its longest tees, the Madison will force you to make use of all the clubs in your bag, being extremely punitive, as in challenging. Everything is at superlativ here, and thats understandable, because with Palm Spring being the Mecca of American Golf, the Madison had to be made extraordinary in order to attract the kind of membership they wanted. Mission accomplished.
