Aging course ok at best
infrastructure aging badly. Cart paths crumnling if it was not immediately tee to green was in disrepair. Greens fair very slow. Could not play down in rough just off fairway very random condition.
Played mid afternoon so very little play which was great. Really like the layout of this course, fun to play. Cart paths are a bit rough would be my only complaint
Good course. Pace of play was slow at times, but great day to be on the course, so not a big deal.
I am not crazy about Dan Maples golf courses but I played with a good friend who lives nearby.
The course had a variety of green sizes which was puzzling. Greens will be needing major attention soon. Fairways mostly weeds. I was disapointed.
Maples in good shape
We thought the layout and course itself were in great shape. However the cart paths would get a 1 out of 5. They were very bumpy, lots of holes and tore up asphalt so hold onto your fillings. I would definitely play again but would be more careful on the paths.
Meeting new friends
I booked as a single and the staff paired me with a gentleman from Scotland .
We enjoyed each other’s company which when coupled with mediocre golf play—- netted a very pleasant afternoon!
A staff attendant even met me at my car to save me returning to the cart barn.
I do not if the course is always this messy or they just did not take the time to clean up after the storm
Sore Back and slowest play!
It's the first 5 hour round of the year. I was placed with 2 others and we also followed another threesome. But we waited on every shot and I think the 15th hole took at least 25 minutes to play. I felt sorry for the twosome behind us! There wasn't a ranger, but even a maintenance worker commented to us there were two guys in the pro shop but they don't check the course for slow play.
The greens weren't as bad as reviews I've read, but they were slow. The fairways were green but mostly thin in places. And the tee boxes were all acceptable .
Some very unique holes and the course is actually fun to play because of the variety.
The cart paths are in terrible condition. I would hope they will repair them at some point within the this year, or rip them out all together. My back was bothering me and it wasn't from playing golf, it was from the bumps and jolts driving the cart paths.
I read a previous review from someone who mentioned that he wished his round was over after 7 seven holes but he had 14 more to play ??? I agree we should have easily been able to play 21, but it really is only 18 holes.
I do not like to give bad reviews to any golf course, and this course is not as bad as the previous reviews would lead you to believe, as the worst parts were the slow play and the cart paths. But I've played the other Sea Trail, courses and would recommend either of them over the Maples.
Great course for the novice and experienced. Not crowded but staff was eager to assist and help out with pace of play.
When we arrived and found that this Maples Course was closed because of damage from hurricane Dorian. However they put us on the Jones Course and we played in 3 hours.
Sorry I played
I am an 11 hdcp and have played golf for 42 years, played hundreds of different courses and played a couple thousand rounds of golf. This was by far my worst experience. We were tormented by mosquitoes for all 18 holes. The cart paths were in disrepair or non existent. None of the traps were cared for at all. One green had two halves (one fast and one slow). All greens had large bare patches and were covered with several kinds of weeds or foreign grasses. The speed on the greens varied significantly from hole to hole.
On most of my golf rounds I get rather depressed about the 15th hole because the round is almost over. Today I was depressed on the 7th hole because I had 14 holes to go.
Give it time
I have reviewed this course multiple times. I currently say stay away. The summer has been brutal on the bent grass greens, and it certainly shows here. I would not even head back and try again until early to mid October, the greens need cooler weather and time to heal. With this I would highly recommend the sister courses on Sea Trail, Byrd or Jones. Both of these courses are in great shape and have Bermuda greens.
Greens almost bare on most holes. Many sand traps unplayable due to course renovation. I know Maples is not the signature course, but it needs some investment. Course was great earlier in the season.
