Max A. Mandel Municipal Golf Course Offers Free Golf Shuttle Service

Golfers find easy solution to getting to the first tee

(Laredo, Texas) — The Max A. Mandel Municipal Golf Course, designed by
world-renowned golf course architect Robert Trent Jones II, is enhancing the customer experience by adding a complimentary, roundtrip shuttle bus service to the golf course from all Laredo area locations including hotels, the airport and local businesses. Conference groups hosting an event at The MAX are also eligible for free shuttle service.  The shuttle, which seats 10 people comfortably with plenty of room for golf bags, is wrapped completely in a vibrant MAX vinyl print.  All rides must be booked in advance by calling (956) 726-2000.

“We are excited to be able to offer another level of service to our out of town customers who are coming into our community to enjoy the competitive play that The MAX offers,” said Peter Palacios, South Texas Regional Manager for Foresight Golf.  “We want to make sure everyone leaves feeling as if they have just had the best golfing experience ever.”

AvidGolfer magazine recently rated us one of the best values in public golf in the state, so this free shuttle service availability should up the ante on that value calculation making The MAX golfing experience one of the best in the nation,” stated Mayor Raul G. Salinas.  “And what golf enthusiast would pass up an opportunity to visit Laredo, catch a free ride to and from The MAX and  play the latest sensation in Robert Trent Jones, II design?”

The Max A. Mandel Golf Course occupies a 270-acre dream site along the Rio Grande and Jones’ team transformed a landscape that features two deep arroyos, a rich variety of mesquite trees and river vega flora into a spectacular 18-hole layout that has already captivated and attracted golfers from not only Texas and Mexico, but also outside the region.  The challenging par-72 course caters to golfers of all ability levels, with five sets of tees available, including a dedicated “juniors” teeing area on each hole to increase enjoyment for family play.

“We look forward to showcasing ‘The MAX’ and crossing the barrier of transportation,” said Clema Owen, general manager at The Max A. Mandel Golf Course.
