Maple Valley Golf and Country Club

Maple Valley Golf Course has been heralded by many as the most beautiful public golf course in Southeastern Minnesota. Surrounded on three sides by limestone bluffs and the Root River, it gives the course a natural difficulty and beauty. Whether it is teeing off of the 50 foot drop on hole 3 to the green below, or being surrounded by water hazards on all sides of hole 15, Mother Nature has done well, making your job both difficult and gorgeous.

Making your final turn down into Maple Valley Golf & Country Club, most are awestruck at the sudden terrain change of the scenic Root River Bluff Country cradling Maple Valley. White limestone bluffs rising to 100 feet above, and the Root River winding around, you truly believe you have just entered a hidden valley.

The natural rolling terrain, mature tree-lined fairways, and natural water hazards help to make Maple Valley one of Minnesota’s most sought-after and photographed courses.

This was the vision, 31-year old Wayne Idso had in 1961, when he read an article in a farm periodical suggesting farm acreages be taken out of production and re-vitalized as recreational possibilities.

In 2005, one of their children, Eric and his wife Karen Idso purchased Maple Valley Golf and Country Club. Eric has worked full time at Maple Valley since 1982. Karen, employed by the Mayo Clinic full-time, works at the course as much as possible. Their son Tyler now works at the course full-time as the superintendent and enjoys it as much as his father and grandfather have.

So, please join us for a round of golf at Maple Valley Golf & Country Club where we have taken great pride in our course for generations.
