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.

Classic Unambiguous Midwest Golf

Pot bunkers! Yep! I'm no pro, most would call me a hacker, but I love the sport and this course. It's fairly easy, except for some of the bunkers, so you shouldn't lose to many balls. It has a nice backdrop situated amidst southern Wisconsin farmland and the staff is warm and friendly. It's got a great bar and overall just a nice vibe. I'll be back!

I drove from Illinois to play this course for the second time, that is how much I enjoy playing the course. If it wasn’t so far away I would play much more often.

Great Price, but we wish we had been warned about the 40m person outing booked for 11am!

We booked on-line and chose noon as our T Time. Unfortunately, the 11 am to noon hour was shown as vacant, when in reality, there was a 40 person outing taking that spot. Needless to say, play was excruciatingly SLOW! The Pro Shop blamed Golf Now for the error! We ended up playing the front nine twice as the outing decided to take a lunch break for 45 minutes! UNACCEPTABLE!

Cow paddock

Course looks like it hasn’t had any water in months, extremely dry, greens dry, fairways like concrete.

Would have been better playing in a cow paddock.

Could be awesome!

Course needs some TLC. Great layout, cool retro feel but needs some serious maintenance. This place could be a 5 star course with some work and money.
