More to Love at Links at Madison Green

The Links at Madison GreenThe leading public-access golf club in Palm Beach County is about to get even better. Already ranked as one of the top 20 courses in the state of Florida, The Links at Madison Green will debut a host of new features and facilities that will optimize player experience, give members more and significantly expand banquet and event operations. Multi-million dollar enhancements will open as the South Florida golf season begins.

“In this economy, we’re an alternative to spending money at a private country club,” said Links at Madison Green owner Todd Schoenwetter. “We’re going to have high-end private country club amenities at value prices.”

Changes will be apparent on and off the golf course, starting with state-of-theart GPS systems mounted inside The Links at Madison Green’s brand new fleet of golf carts.

The Links is already the first facility in Palm Beach County to use the revolutionary Visage GPS system in its golf carts. Designed by Club Car, Visage offers unbelievable 3D graphics, trusted yardage figures, hole flyovers, real time tournament tracking and food and beverage call buttons. With the course at the customer’s fingertips, pace of play should improve. Golfers can also keep score digitally and email scores to themselves, or friends when their round has concluded.

Plans also call for an on-site golf academy led by a highly-regarded swing professor who’s tutored a number of major championship winners. A very inexpensive year-round learning program costing just $250 will be offered at the new academy. Palm Beach County’s only aqua range nicely complements the facility, and gives golfers all of the time in the world to work on their game since clean-up and repair isn’t necessary.

One-day, two and three-day schools will also be available. Information on the instructor will be available shortly. Previously home to a pro shop/golfers pub combination, the clubhouse has been transformed into a handsome banquet facility with multiple rooms capable of seating 200 guests for weddings, golf outings and any kind of special occasion.

The Links at Madison GreenTo replace the old clubhouse, a new multi-use building will be ready for the season at The Links at Madison Green. This 7,000-square-foot structure is the signature element of the comprehensive renovation to the golf club. It will house the pro shop, Men’s and Women’s locker rooms/steam rooms, full-service locker room attendant with shoe cleaning, a sports bar, grille room and a member’s lounge/banquet room. A patio area overlooking the lake will also be available for everyone’s enjoyment.

The subtleties involved in the renovation speak to the quality of improvements throughout the property.

Hand car washes will be offered to members and guests so their vehicles will have a new shine by the time they’ve played 18, even if their golf game doesn’t. The new sports bar will feature flat screen televisions and utilize a remote keg system that will hold 12 different varieties of  draft beer. And for business-savvy visitors, the buildings at The Links at Madison Green have Wi-Fi access that can be used for brief lunch meetings or larger conferences.

The Links at Madison Green has never been in better condition and the club has recently purchased new John Deere mowing equipment to maintain the wellgroomed golf course.

“We’ve done everything we can to improve the experience here, and our facilities are now state-of-the-art.” Schoenwetter said.

All told, the new facilities at The Links at Madison Green position the club as a prime choice for fullfield golf events, charity functions, banquets, business meetings, weddings, receptions and special events. Wedding and event packages are completely customizable, and arrangements to rent space or book an outing at The Links at Madison Green can be made by contacting Rich LeConche or Jen Hernandez.

The Links at Madison Green

A Proven Winner

The renovations didn’t extend to the award-winning golf course at The Links at Madison Green. Quite frankly, they weren’t necessary, but the budget for the course has gone up as the course is in immaculate condition.

“The golf course stayed the same,” said General Manager Rich LeConche. “We’re top 20 in the state, so there wasn’t much to improve on really.”

The Links at Madison Green has been consistently stellar since the day it opened. In fact, Florida Golf Magazine hailed The Links as the “Best
New Public Course” in Palm Beach County in 2001, citing excellent course conditions and service. Independent raters and readers have the course listed among the top 20 in Florida on Golflink.com, and Golf Magazine gives it 4.8 out of 5 Stars. Golf Digest has named The Links at Madison Green among its “Best Places to Play” the past three years.

The Links at Madison Green is also popular with a lot of the upscale Palm Beach hotels, and the golf club can inform visiting players on the steps necessary to book a “Stay and Play” package in the area.

Aesthetically, The Links at Madison Green is a close cousin to the courses you’d find nestled into well-wooded areas of North Carolina. There are 12 acres of Pine Barrens incorporated into the layout in addition to 250 oaks, 500 palm trees and 1,500 – 2,000 native plants that surround fairways. It’s fair to call this a tree-lined track.

The Links at Madison GreenA large amount of dirt was moved at The Links at Madison Green to create elevation changes and undulating surfaces. Unlike a lot of Florida layouts, holes don’t run parallel here, which can be seen as a good or bad thing depending on your accuracy. You’ll also have plenty of water to deal with. The Links has 42 acres of H20.

With five sets of tees, including a setup for juniors, The Links at Madison Green is best described as challenging but fair. The Links at Madison Green is conveniently located off of Okeechobee Blvd., which is the main thoroughfare that runs straight into Palm Beach. The course is proximal to city’s convention center and the West Palm airport.
