Very fast paced golf course. Fairways were running well, except for a few rough spots that was being worked on. Fairways are wide open, with no water and few bunkers. Trees are the major hazard and can jump out at your ball if you're not straight. Very good course.

Maple lane is usually a good place to play because it is so wide open but it does get busy sometimes and that can lead to a slow round but this time it was a ghost town for me and my brother. We played 18 in 2 1/2 hours and i witnessed my brother get an eagle on the par 5 7th with a 3 wood bomb from 250 out to the middle of the green to sink a 30 footer. The week after he got an eagle on the 9th hole by driving the green. Besides those amazing holes maple lane is always a good play because it is a very straight forward course that is well kept and its easy to shoot par.

Course full of hackers lacking etiquette. No rangers keeping pace. At turn ranger starting a league and put me as the 11th twosome to tee off. Told to wait or switch the course I was playing.which we did.. Once again stuck behind hackers and waited before every shot. Quit after playing 15 holes. Took 4 hours and 15 minutes to that point.If we kept our current pace it would have taken 6 hours +. Course itself was in fair condition but nothing well.

By far the worst course I have been to. The greens were horrible, you couldnt tell the difference between the rough and fairways and just not a nice course. They had an outing Tee off after we started. The entire outing drove across our fairway as we were hitting. I wouldnt pay more than 10 bucks to play 18 here and they charged us 30 each. The inside of this place hasnt been cleaned in years and the bathrooms are set up like a squad bay in Marine Corps boot camp. Never will play here again.

Great having 54 Holes on a course, but they need to offer more variety in the beer carts. Would like to see some craft beer or cider beers especially heading into Fall.

Course conditions were actually surprisingly good.

Facilities are very old and outdated.

A few improvements here and there would make this a favorite spot.

Maybe put some hole info at the tee boxes instead of just hole number signs!

Overall would still recommend.

Went on a weekday at noon and the place was packed. There is people hitting on your fairway from other places the entire time, there are kids that roll up tin foil and throw them on the fairway so you think you see your ball. I will only golf here if I can get a half off deal from GolfNow. Not a terrible place but too many people

Ok for the price we paid. It is not worth paying more that 18.00 for 18 with a cart when you can pay that price for a much nicer course on Golfnow. But it's nice and close to us which we like for last minute golfing.

Not an exciting course at all. Very boring; no water hazards and very few bunkers. I left after the front 9 holes. Too many straight-ahead holes with very little trees on the sides. Not fun and not challenging at all. Luckily I found a GolfNow Hot Deal and it only cost me $10. If I had spent more money than that I would have been extremely displeased.

The West is the best of the 3 courses at Maple Lane insofar as you can play all 18 without interruption at the "turn" the course stretches all the way around so on this one you will not hit the club house after 9. If you are playing well, holes 17 and 18 can kill your score easily, hole 17 plays down a chute of trees to the left and right a straight driver or slightly left at least 210-220 out puts you in good shape for the green which is elevated. Hole 18 plays along 14 mile rd, and 3/4 of the "fairway" is in a valley to which a long second shot plays to the most elevated green on the course, always seems to play 10-15 yds longer than you think and is a deceptively large green.

i paid $15 for 18 with a cart, so you cant beat the price.<br/> we got teamed up with another twosome who also booked through golf now.<br/> the course is easy if you hit the ball straight, but any wayward shot you will be in the trees or on another fairway,<br/> there a 3 18 hole courses and they are very close to each other & you can have someone hitting their ball out of your fairway at any moment.<br/> we played the west course which is fairly short, but the greens were fine & we did not get held up at anytime.<br/> will do this again if i can get the same price.
