Detailed description

Maple Leaf Golf Club is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Kernersville, North Carolina.

The course first opened in 1970 as a nine-hole course designed by Ellis Maples. Bill Lankford Sr. and the owner at the time, Don Charles, added another nine holes in 1989.

Maple Leaf Golf Course has a tight front nine and a fairly open back nine. The signature hole is #5, a 350-yard, par 4, which requires an approach shot over a lake. There are sand bunkers on half of the holes. Water comes into play a couple times on the front nine, and on the back nine, there is a meandering creek that comes into play on two holes.
