The damage could be from a generalist beetle such as Japanese beetle or a caterpillar. Did you happen to notice any insects on the leaves?

At this point in the season, it's not worth spraying anything as the leaves will fall off in a few weeks anyway. The foliage should return as normal in the Spring.
