Maplegate Country Club sprawls across 150 acres of gently rolling hills that are blanketed with forests of stately maple, oak, beech, and white pine trees. The golf course is situated just off of I-495 along the border between Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Although the location is seemingly isolated, it’s conveniently only 45 minutes from Boston. The course plays harder than it looks with a diverse layout that will test you with a variety of different shots. Maplegate Country Club's front nine features more target-style golf but you'll get to pull out your driver on the back nine. There are some tough holes, but it's not overly punishing for the high handicapper. The variety that the golf course offers made it the natural choice to host U.S. Open Qualifiers in both in 1998 and 2001.

Course was in great shape. Several challenging holes, with forced carries. The course lacked the standard 150 yard markers. It was difficult judging distances to the center of the green.

This place was a gem when I was younger, but they let the course conditions get so bad that it was barely playable. Over the past year or so, they hired a new superintendent and the course conditions have gotten much better. The greens were fast and rolling well. Still some work that needs to be done but it’s getting there!

A round of golf should NEVER be FIVE PLUS HOURS! You missed the point with your excuse that it was busy. You have a starter telling people that it will be slow and that it is OKAY. Well, it is NOT okay. You did not enforce prompt play. Instead you condone slow play.

Hello. Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day as we start our season, we worked hard to allow all our guests the chance to play their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve. We appreciate your feedback and thank you for playing Maplegate. We hope to see you again soon.

The starter tells us on the first tee that it will be slow! SO they set an expectation to players that slow is okay. What the starter should do is tell people that they need to move along and tell them how they can keep the pace of play acceptable. our round was FIVE PLUS HOURS. I won't go back for a long time.

The course is in fairly good condition given how much rain there has been recently and I’ve had a few good rounds of 18 over the past few weeks. It can get a little slow on the weekends but not so bad that it ruins the round. The clubhouse isn’t huge but they’ve got great sandwiches and hotdogs and a pretty well stocked bar for after the round

The course benefitted due to another course closing; and Maplegate employed the closed greenskeeper. One of our foursome, chatted up another golfer who stated the course was in great condition. Clearly, after playing today, dont trust what you hear. The tee boxes were a mess, the fairways patchy/burned out, staff all over cutting grass(where they found any would be the question), Our foursome has played this course over the years and found it to be a value when discounted rates via GOLFNOW were available. This year, the rate to play was noticeably higher(again to take advantage of golfers moving from closed course), and we were optimistic the new greenskeeper would have a positive impact. We will need to let the course owners put a lot more monies into it...for now, the extra cash flow is not showing up...and for the price we paid, it is, currently OVER PRICED...may try it again in a year or two...such potential...lots of make up to do to get it to where the pricing is at least reasonable...we play public courses and know what a good course looks like and pricing is also a value proposition...be patient with them for another 1-2 years...there is still a ton of work to be done, i.e., aerating the fairways...and tee boxes, but no fill...lots of pure dirt spots on virtually every fairway...patience is urged, but, do adjust expectations for this course...vs what you pay for it

we booked 2 4somes back to back during the week. Now we know why the tee times were available. What used to be a very nice course has lost all of its luster. Tee boxes were a mess, fairways had many many bald spots and greens were dog slow. It's too bad because the actual course lay-out is plenty challenging for the avg to plus golfers but you wont be stealing my money again anytime soon.
