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.
Wayne researched the design of golf course architecture. Contacting the National Golf Foundation, a representative visited the site and sanctioned the plan. The property was hilly and heavily wooded. With the help of his wife Suzanne and their children, Wayne took their second-generation family farm and started construction of the Maple Valley Golf and Country Club in May 1963. Since then,Wayne has helped with the development and construction of two other courses; Cedar Valley in Winona, MN and Riverview Greens in Stewartville, MN. Wayne and Suzanne still work fulltime at both courses. Most days, you will find Suzanne behind the counter or working on flowerbeds at Maple Valley. Wayne, still the farmer at heart, can be found quite often on a tractor at St. Charles Golf Club.
