Excellent course. Was behind a group playing from the pro tees who should've been on the whites, but cannot quibble with the condition or views of this Donald Ross course.

It's a old traditional golf course built in 1914. A old classic Donald Ross course. The course is kind of corky feel too it. The some holes you can't bust out the driver. It's a short yardage golf course. Alot of short par 4 and 5s. The par 3s are long 200 plus yards. The greens are very tricky. You have too double check twice. Before making the putts.Jerry is in the pro shop was very warm and polite. would definitely recommend anyone to play here. They also have a play and stay package as well. Golfing is pretty much Billy goat golfing here.The Golf carts were very powerful. The only downside of this course is. No driving range and the restaurant closed for lunch on Columbus Day. Other golfers were polite and let me pass them thru. Will definitely be back here soon.

It was a perfect fall day North of the Wall. Donald Ross never fails to impress nor provide the ultimate challenge. Tree lined fairways with a bit of forgiveness and variation to keep you honest. Please be advised, THERE IS NO RANGE AT THIS COURSE! If you can shape your shots with consistency you'll do well here others beware! Its a great challenge for all skill levels. Highly recommend.

I've played and enjoy playing many New Hampshire course. Playing Maplewood for the first time was fun but frustrating. Fairly open off tees but how can you hit these greens! Starts with a nice short par 5 I was on front in 2 and made a birdie. Only birdie of the day. Incredibly tough small greens to hit and read. I'm a 5 handicap and shot 85 on a course that's only 6000 yards from blue tees. Course was in good shape all around but please fix those early 1900's cart paths. If you can hit a 52-60 degree wedge within 10 ft of pin here your playing well. Miss any green and there goes your par. Not really my type of golf but for $10 on Golfnow a great deal.

Old Ross course without many of the famous Ross features. Hard fairways with little contrast with rough. Pay attention to the fairway "goalposts" on most holes as seemingly good drives are not always rewarded by good lies. Very firm greens with lots of break not always apparent to the inexperienced eye. As noted before, back 9 much more playable.

Overall a fair price and a beautiful setting.

Staff pleasant and play light, so set your own pace.

Can't go wrong here. Staff is fantastic from manager on down. The facility is impressive, stone main building, sitting rooms dining facility and guest rooms ! Layout is definitely challenging with, side hills, water , and a par six with 2 water hazards! Great views in nearly every direction can be a distraction the first time you play here, and oh, the food is good too...

The front 9 is very difficult for the average player. Sloping and uneven fairways and greens. In addition the greens are hard as rocks. Short iron shots to the center of the green will most likely not stay. The back 9 is fine and fun to play. They have a 600 yard par 6 that can be challenging and rewarding. A good drive and second shot can reward you with an easy par. Even by not recommending the course to a friend, for the price it's worth your time to check it out. The club house is very nice, the staff are friendly and the food and beverages are fairy priced.

I was in NH on a weekend getaway and found this place on golf now. Although I personally had trouble adjusting to the speed of the greens I thought the course played really fair. If I'm back in the area I will definitely go back for another round. I also had a steak and cheese sub before I played and it was one of the most delicious sandwiches I've ever had.

Have played this course several times in past years and decided to become members. Course is well managed, staff is extremely friendly and professional. Greens are meticulously maintained and diabolical, but you would expect that from a Donald Ross course. Views are spectacular and it is a very good value whether you are a member or just walk in off the street.
