Madison Golf Club opened for play in January 2000.  I established the routing plan and residential parcels during a weeklong site visit.  Subsequently, I worked with Perry Burr, of Resort Design Associates, a multi-disciplinary architecture and planning firm from San Francisco. 

The site was mostly low and wet.  Fortunately, there are large, sandy hills that rise abruptly out of the low lands that were ideal for residential homes.  In the low areas, where the golf holes can be easily viewed from the higher home sites, we designed ponds and wetlands to improve the site’s conditions.  In one low area, I surrounded a residential parcel in water, and then in golf.  This parcel can be found amongst holes #8, #9, #17, and #18.

The golf course community is a part of a larger plan that includes a small, boutique style hotel that is managed by Four Seasons Resort, the world's leading operator of luxury hotels and resorts.  This hotel is located across the road from the course, and sits on the banks of the Rio de Plate, which separates Argentina from Uruguay.  Additionally, there are plans for a polo field and soccer field near the practice range.
