Very poor club house staff.

We were early for our 1:30 tee time, as usual at all courses.
No one waiting to tee off or getting ready to tee off.
After waiting. 20 mins. I asked the man at the front desk if we could go ahead and tee off.
His response was " if you want to tee off before your tee time we should have paid the extra 50.00 for our tee time.

So, in conclusion they do not want anyone getting a discount to play their course..
They do not have to worry about us again.

Very poor and disrespectful service from staff.

Played this course several times but the treatment received from the staff leaves a lot to be desired. If you are not a member the staff acts as if they are doing you a favor by letting you play. Public is not treated like customers. Not worth the money just to endure mistreatment and feel like a second class citizen. Many other golf courses in the area will provide more value for your money.

MapleDale review

The course personnel are always pleasant and helpful. The entire staff provides such outstanding customer service which I wish all our local courses would model after. All other golfer's that I have met while playing this course have always been quite friendly and helpful. The course and greens are well maintained and stay in very good condition though out the year. The course is one of the most challenging in the area and should play very fair to all skill levels. Maple Dale is the best course for the money around and the food is excellent. Thanks again for a most enjoyable round of golf. Hope to be back soon :) .

Beautiful Course!

The course was in great shape, fairways soft & plush & the greens & tee boxes were excellent. Some of the traps could use a little more sand but that is the same at most courses. Kitchen is closed on Mondays so no food available except for snacks. I would play this course all the time if it was closer to me 1 hr drive. Challenging enough with the trees & water on many holes & long enough so you are not just hitting driver & 9 or wedge to green but driver & 6 or 5 to greens on many par 4s.

Well worth the 1 hour drive to dover

I like to get around to different courses for variety and golfnow hot deals makes this possible and affordable. Maple dale has a beautiful clubhouse and very nice golf course. no particular wow factor and only minor elevation changes but from tee box to green conditions were excellent. A few tight tee shots and a couple forced carries . greens rolled fast and true . Had some local knowledge on a few shots which helped. Will return again for sure.

Maple Dale x 2

This is my second visit to Maple Dale and as with the first visit there was no cart person, the restaurant was closed and there was no access to food or beverages. Additionally, the grounds keeper yelled several obscenities at us as we warmed up on the tee box. He was cutting a drop zone 30 yards to our right and took offense to us not waiting for him. This is a private course, but you would never know accept for the snotty members and terrible staff. The course was in decent shape and the price was right so i guess you get what you pay for.

Very true review. The customer service is the absolute worse. Not worth dropping your money there. Many other courses in the area will offer a friendlier more pleasant experience.

Very true review. Not a bad golf course but the staff makes it for a belittling and humiliating experience. Not the type of place where you would be happy dropping your cash.

Fine course

Played this course for the first time. We found it to be a great Great course. Got there a few minutes post our tee time, but we we accommodated without any problems. Narrow Fairway that demands that you hit you balls straight. The greens were in excellent condition.The pro shop staff were awesome. Will play it again

Uninteresting but Straightforward

Flat and very straightforward. That can be a good thing when combined with its pristine conditions and superb, true greens.

Excellent course, Fairways are pretty narrow due to trees, make it somewhat difficult off the tee box. You will enjoy the course.

Great course a must play if you are in Dover.

Headed to Ocean City to play golf but traffic was bad so I decided to look on golfnow for a local place to get out of traffic. Founde Dale but Golfnow had the course in Bethany Beach? It is in Dover and a gem. Great staff did not eat there but there was a nice crowd on patio to witness my 15 footer for birdie On 18!! There was no applause.which was disappointing. But that was the only thing I was disappointed in. Flat holes lots of doglegs played from the tips which left me several long second shots but a good overall distance.

A Great Value

Course was fairly wet and day after a some rain.
A local High School had a match and that slowed our pace on the back nine.
