Opened in 1929, Maplecrest Country Club is one of the oldest golf courses in Kenosha County. It is conveniently located a surprisingly short drive away from Chicago's northern suburbs. This challenging public course has long been a favorite amongst locals both for the playable design and the affordability. The golf course is relatively flat although there are a few subtle contours that can cause some tricky uneven lies. Watered fairways and fast greens protected by bunkers provide the bulk of the course's challenges though it is still quite forgiving if your shots are slightly errant. It is a course that beginners can approach with confidence but it still has plenty to offer for more advanced golfers. One good example is the difficult green on the sixth hole, which stands out as one of the toughest in the area.

Greens good

Course has many low points and takes on a lot of water. Bunkers in dire need of love and mowing seemed behind in fairways...that said greens were healthy and the course is an enjoyable walk !

Not going back for a while

Unfortunately they didn’t allow carts and due to the extremely slow play we called it quits after nine holes even though we paid for eighteen. First time for me to have to make that call. Also, there wasn’t a beverage cart on a very humid day.

Stay away

This course is complete garbage starting with the staff that doesn’t know how to manage reservations and then became angry because he was so frustrated. The course was in pathetic shape and running 30-40 minutes behind. This is the only review I’ve ever written because they deserve it. I wouldn’t come back to this dump if it was free.

Glacial

Walking only which would have been fine but for some reason after 6 slow holes, just when it seemed like things might open up, we got to a par 3 and there were 4 groups waiting. 3 hour 9 was too much for me.
