About Us

Vitense Golfland was founded in 1955 by George Vitense, a longstanding PGA professional, past president of the Wisconsin PGA and an inductee of the Madison Sports Hall of Fame. Although George Vitense died in 1988, his grandson, Joel Weitz, President & PGA Professional of Vitense Golfland and also a past president of the Wisconsin PGA, continues the operation of the business today.

In 1955, George Vitense had a vision of developing a multifaceted, affordable, day & night family golf environment, in Madison. In its first few years of operation, George Vitense Golfland already featured a large double deck golf range, two 18 hole miniature golf courses, and a 9 hole par 3 golf course.

Today, we have continued our family vision of high quality, affordable, family golf & sports related entertainment. The facility includes a Top 50 Rated Golf Range in America open all year, the first and only lighted golf course in the State of Wisconsin, the #1 rated miniature golf courses in Dane County, the "putting edge" INDOOR Madison Landmark 18 hole miniature golf course, 8 state of the art baseball and softball batting cages, a 24 ² five station climbing wall, Jump Shot - the trampoline game, Water Wars - water balloon slingshot fun, "The Rock" - 24 ² climbing wall and concessions. All activities are available at night. In September, 2006 we opened our 20,000 square foot building which allows us to offer fun activities year round. In addition to the new 18 hole indoor Madison Landmark miniature golf course, we also offer a full arcade with tickets for prize redemption. You may also drive remote control boats on our "Lake Mendota" and "Lake Monona". We also offer in-house catering, off premise catering and full food & beverage service for breakfast, lunch and dinner from Vitense Catering & Grill. We have a beautiful dining area with 3 sided fireplace, 60 ³ flatscreen TV and beautiful view of our facility.
