Came here for a Saturday morning round with a friend. For quality -- this course is middle of the road.
Madison has numerous golf courses and many very good ones. On the weekends, I notice that regular golfers tend to seek out the top courses and leave the average ones behind. The benefit is that Monona Golf Course offers a special rate on Saturdays and it's not very busy! I think we paid $14 for a round of golf.
The Pros: Cost is reasonable. It's within the city.
The Cons: The course isn't that long, resulting in every hole is birdie-able. They only have nine holes. No beverage girls on the weekend. No bar at the clubhouse.
