Maplecrest Country Club
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.

My girlfriend and I are beginner golfers. This is our favorite course. Just the right amount of difficulty with the sand traps and water hazards. We aren't good enough to pay 80 bucks a round so for us this course is perfect. Everyone in the clubhouse is very nice and always asks if we need anything to eat and or drink.
Fix brown patches
The fairways are in good condition but the greens need a lot of work to many dried Brown spots in of course the sand traps are in very poor condition put a price you really can't complain
If the greens were in better shape, this course would be a 4 to 5 rating.The latest spell of rain really helped the course recover from the lack of rain earlier this summer. Fun course to play. The staff is always friendly and the bar has very reasonable prices.
Great Value! Easy going atmosphere
2nd time at Maplecrest with the boys. Recommend this course, both fun, playable, and a great value. Pretty quiet both of our visits, staff is very friendly, & all necessary precautions for Covid-19 respected.
What happened? Absolute shambles.
What happened to this course. Absolute shambles and embarrassment. Zero maintenance and the greens are atrocious. I’d rather quit golf than play here again. This is a viewpoint of 3 other golfers who played here as well.
Not in good shape
greens had lots of dead spots and had to wait for carts. never seen the beverage cart and it was 90 degrees.
Good deal, friendly staff
Played early - which helps a lot...this course books groups every 7 minutes, so beware if you are coming later...it is certain to be backed up and behind schedule. Going early fixes that.
This is a very nice older course. Very manageable for walking. The course can play quickly, but is full of challenges.
A few challenges during Covid
This was the second time I booked a tee time for a foursome in the last three weeks. Both times upon arrival to the course and checking in I was told there were no motor carts, after I had prepaid for my round through Golfnow.
The staff was courteous and after a wait they did supply the carts. With the challenges Covid presents with many carts going out with single rideres there should be some type of disclaimer that there may not be carts available upon arrival. The first time I booked I ended up walking because we never were able to get carts, and walked in 90 degree plus heat.
The course itself is in average condition and is in need of some minor maintenance throughout the course. I have played the course literally a hundred time so I can give a good assessment.
Having said all of this...you can't beat the value and you can always get on the course.
I would say, book a round here, but beware of the potential shortage of carts, you may have to wait on carts, or even walk.
Good Value on a LONG course ...
Played here for the first time(s) on a late June Saturday, then again on Monday. Reading about the age of the course, I expected tight fairways, short yardage and fast greens. I was only right about the fast greens - the course is LONG in yardage (especially when you’re walking, as we were), with mostly generous sized fairways. Course itself was in pretty good shape, but with several areas marked off as unplayable due to recent flooding , and ground under repair. Some greens had bare spots, but on the whole were in OK shape, and were faster than average. Staff was very friendly. Will play here again when visiting the area,
