My favorite

Everyone has their favorite local course and Maple Lane is mine. You get to the middle of that course and it’s like you’re not in the heart of metro Detroit anymore. Its flat and wide open mostly, not very challenging. Its where you wanna go to relax or bury a 12 pack.

People can be nuts!

Maple Lane doesn’t pretend to be Oakland Hills. They are a local course where you can hits shots, make some putts, bring some friends and have a great time. The course itself is harder than you think. The trees are all grown up and make it a place where accuracy counts the most. Those people who expect the world for $35.00 will be disappointed but if you go in knowing you are there to have fun and enjoy golf with friends then Maple Lane is the place to go. Take it for what it is worth a place that wants fun to be had by all levels of golfer they are not expecting a tour event anytime soon.

Don’t play here!!!!!

Worst condition course I have seen in a long time…. There was no starters making it a free for all at the tee boxes. There were 2 groups of 6 playing together slowing everyone down but no rangers on the course to correct it. Lawn crew was in the way on most holes and didn’t stop mowing and picked up 2 of my balls that were in the fairway…

Worst course I’ve ever played at

Pace of play was terrible and it seemed as if there was a concert there. I will never go back to this place!! Trust me it isn’t worth it.

Worst Course I’ve Ever Played

This course is terrible. There are no fairways. It’s just a bunch of hard dirt, weeds, and sticks. There is no cart path. Everyone is hitting Into one another. On top of that, they charge $25 per person for 9 holes? Insane. You can play 9 at the Shenandoah CC for $30. It should not cost more than $10 to play here. Terrible course all around. I will not be coming back.

Poor course conditions even for the beginning of the year. No public restroom available and no portable restroom options as an alternative.
