This course was built on gently rolling hills and is highlighted by the river horseshoes flowing throughout the back nine. A variety of fairways ranging from narrow and tree lined to wide open will challenge your driving skills. The greens are fast, slightly sloped and medium-sized. Lakes come into play on several holes. The signature hole is #3, a 155-yard, par 3, which tees off overlooking the green 100 feet below. There is a river on the left side of the fairway, and a creek in play behind this elevated green.

Too Much Fun!!!, Jun 29, 2004
from Rochester, MN
|Maple Valley has to be one of the most enjoyable courses to play in the S.E. Minnesota area. Mostly because it has such a mix of tough, medium, and easy holes. Not a very long course, but when played from the Back tees you certainly can have your hands full, especially if the wind comes up!! You better get your scoring done on the front nine, the back has the tendency to bring out your weaknesses if you don't hit the ball straight! Position is certainly the key to making par or better on all but one of the par 5's. The greens are usually very soft and receptive and are set up to be a comfortable putting speed. The greens are a small target though and the rough is kept thick enough to penalize you for missing. The only "complaint" that you hear at Maple Valley is the Tee Boxes. They are not very level, it is tough to find a good spot to where your feet aren't above or below the ball and the tend to get a little spotty. This course has had some flooding problems in the past with the beautiful (Ball Attracting) Root River flowing through both 9's, but they always work there tails off to get this course back on track! If you are in S.E. Minnesota and are looking for a very fun course with "Minnesota Nice" people running it, this is the one to go to! Don't forget your camera, listen for Wild Turkey's, and you never know you may have a White Tail come out and say hello. Have a great round where ever you are!|
