06-17-10 Played a nine holes after work. Very busy and the golf course is OK. Don't expect much for $22 but fair for the value. Greens were in good conditions. Boring lay-out and short course from the blue 6,112. Quality of golfers with high handicap which creates slow play. Noisy because of the highway. Club house had a fun ambiance. Watching the Lakers beaten the Celtics in Game 7. I recommend the location if you would like to play after work with average players.

Because this course is near my work, I play here often.

Compared to the other courses near by, this is the better value and a more interesting course. There are soft hills where you hit to elevevated greens, or down to fairways that are lower elevation. There are interesting par 5's that reward you if you can cut the dog leg and drive the ball long.

The cons of the course: Two of the par 5's are near maple valley HW and the noise from the traffic can be disconcerting to an other wise nice round of golf.

Because this course gets a lot of play, I would not recommend this course on a weekend or sunny afternoon, because you won't be home for dinner, or your kid's bedtime.

After reviewing this course on this site, I decided to give it a try. I have re-reviewed the previous posts (reviews), and cannot see the "value" of this course in any way, share or form.

Greens fees were reasonable @ $32.00 (walking)
The course itself is not easy to walk, with many low-grade hills, and substantial distances between greens and tees.

One reviewer said that compared to Bellevue this course was a gem. I have found Bellevue to be in fantastic shape this year - with plush fairways and greens. This was not the case at Maplewood. The overall condition of the course was deplorable. Tee boxes were just hammered, every green was aerated a week+ ago. Greens (overall) were hairy (incredibly slow) and any kind consitent play was impossible. Skirt areas around the greeens were abundant with the remains or the aeration plugs.

Conditions were, perhaps, the worst I have experienced all season. Given the amount of rain and cool weather we've hard, I would have expected even the blackest thumb could make this course look like the TPC.

I found the players to be completely ignorant of golf ettiquette and rules (my own group as well as others). Not a reflection of the course - but certainly part of the overall playing experience.

I did see a course Ranger repeatedly, although (arguably) I'm not sure what she would have done if slow play were an issue. The pace of play was good, with very few delays.

Overall Rating: D
Would go back: No
Would recommend: No

I love this course! Check it out and see for yourself. It's busy, but they keep play moving because of the marshalls and the way they book their tee times.

Lovely course, close to the city, and well priced

This is truly a gem of a course. I live near the course and feel very fortunate. It's well maintained, well priced, has an excellent restaurant and bar. Check it out!

Worth the money!

Better than most municipals; at least this course has marshalls. Other courses in the area won't invest that money (hiring marshalls); hence, sloooooooow play. Take it from me, play Maplewood vs. Bellevue's muni or Riverbend; unless you have time to stand around waiting on each tee box!
