On several occasions now, I paid the bargain rate on different courses for the 1:30 pm tee time. I do not know if it is intentional, but every time I've make the turn I was cut in front of by league play, several weeks back, and the slowest foursome yesterday. I called the club house, the person I spoke with stated he would notify the starter, but I saw no action.

The course was swamped with golfers and the starter sent me on a different course than what I paid to play which helped out tremendously! He was extremely helpful and guided me to the best areas to avoid what I heard to be upwards of a 20 minute wait at times.

This used to be a go to course when you just felt like swingin em for cheap. All of a sudden, they changed management and decided to double/triple their prices while disallowing any wiggle room in the now strict pricing. I used to golf Maple Lanes very often when it was cheap, but now, I can golf courses 10 times better for what they charge.

I have played here for the past 6 years and since the management changes 5 years ago, the prices haven't gone up. If anything they have gone down. Used to be $38 to play sunday morning, now it's only $30. Not to mention everything in the pro shop is cheaper than golfsmith and carl's.

This course is a dump the fairways are full of clover and weeds. There are ball washers on some holes but not all. My golf league plays here and i have been trying to get them to move but due to location they keep coming here.As said in an other review staff is rude.The topper is in my league they charge us 27 buck to ride 9 holes. Not worth it. Went by the other day and the front east holes 1and 2 are closed because the bridges over the creek are not usable. This would be a great place for a wal mart.

The first two holes on the east are open again, and the plan to build a $250k cart bridge has been approved. As a regular of maple lane, I have heard that If your league prepays, or if you get one of the prepaid golf cards in March, you can save a minimun of $5 a round. $160 for ten rounds, or $300 for 20. Good deal!

While it's a shorter course at 5700 yards, it has lots of character and many fun holes. I love playing here, there's a lot of risk reward like on number 9, 10, 14, and 18.

The greens were incredibly pure and hold the ball well, great condition.

Tees and fairwarys were average but still nice.

Don't go in the rough, it is think and there are lots of trees.

Got a deal on golf now $14 on a holiday afternoon, so what can you expect for the price.<br/> The layout is crazy, the fairways are tight & need attention, there is no water & few bunkers, the distances markers are wrong, but the greens are great & the people are nice.

Course was what I expected decent conditions, pace was a little slow but overall not too bad. All 3 courses are relatively short and beginner friendly. My problem came from the staff in the clubhouse. I've never encountered a staff at a golf course that was so rude, it was bad enough that I'd never go back. I golf for the full experience and they really know how to ruin it there. Sad part is I didn't have high expectations to begin with. Although I have to admit the rangers and starter were very helpful and polite.

It seems as if they tried to cram in so many holes onto a given plot of land. There are four eighteen hole courses at Maple Lane. All the fairways are parallel and next to each other with a row of trees appdividing them. Very few bunkers, no rough, no water. No imagination. Also, it appeared golfers were playing holes willy-nilly. On the 15th hole, a twosome majically appeared in front of us. Not recommended.

Maple Lane is a nice course. It may not be top of the line, but with 54 holes a lot of golf can be played for a good value. The north course is very fun to play on, there is no water and few sand traps that make it a great course for players of all skill levels. The staff was friendly and helpful to guiding you in the right direction. There are three courses, so if you are new to the club it can be confusing finding your starting hole. A downside to this course is that there is a number of trees, some right in the middle of the fairway, and lead to leaves all over the greens that can be difficult to putt through, and too many leaves to simply brush out of your way.
