Maple Heights Golf & Country Club was a dream that became a reality for the Gansen brothers, Ken and Bob. In the fall of 1989, after harvesting 62 acres, the brothers, along with the help of family and friends began the process of turning a corn field into a 9-hole golf course.

The undulated greens, built to USGA specifications, are layered soil, sand and peat, covered with bent grass.

The electronically controlled irrigated fairways, of a rye and bluegrass mixture, are spacious and designed with safety in mind

A variety of landscaping techniques are employed throughout the course for aesthetics and function. There are over 300 trees lining the fairways. Four water hazards, including a 2.5-acre lake, add to the course. Some of the members of Maple Heights “adopt” a tee box and plant flower gardens for others to enjoy.

A friendly, small town atmosphere can be experienced in the clubhouse, which is a renovated farmhouse.

Meals are served during the day and evenings. The club house is open to the public.

Maple Heights Golf & Country Club offers safe, scenic, challenging golf enjoyable for all ages and skill levels.
