Timberlake Golf Course
Timberlake Golf Club in Clinton sits halfway between the Triangle and Wilmington. The classic design is reminiscent of traditional Scottish links courses, featuring a combination of water and pot bunkers as well as large grassy swales. The golf course sprawls across rolling hills, which provide plenty of contours and elevation changes. From the elevated tees, golfers will have a dramatic view of the rugged landscape. The golf course is mostly open though there are a few stands of mature trees that can be troublesome if you're not careful. The cavernous bunkers and carefully molded mounding present formidable challenges that will test even the best golfers. In addition to the golf course, Timberlake also offers a full driving range and practice green as well as tennis courts and an Olympic-sized swimming pool.

Golf Advisor: Top Courses in South Carolina
Nephew and I wanted to golf some where different, I wanted him to experience a great course ,under the condition of all the rain we had,it was cart path only but we had a blast! It was in great shape considering the temp and weather. The only thing I would add is to have better markings or layout of course in a booklet! That would be helpful. But it was great shape ! Will golf again!!!
Always in good shape
Course was in great shape even though it rained all night before our tee time.
Thay have the best new carts well taken care of. Only thing that needs attention is the cart paths.
Good course, challenges you on almost every hole. Pretty good condition considering it’s winter time.
Today we played and it was a rainy day but it was warm and we managed to play whole round. Our first time here but we hope we can get back some time to play again. Great course and in great shape! It was very wet but there is grass everywhere so no muddy areas on course. What staff we saw was friendly! Highly recommend!
Course is in good shape. Only golf course on Lake Murray. Good mix of holes . My senior group always enjoys it. Only complaint I have is that several greens are hard and do not hold very well. I am an advanced player and had 4 birdies today and some greens held well yet others ran out 30 to 40 feet. I always enjoy this course and the views of the lake are a huge plus.
We were passing through and picked this course through Golf Now. The views of the lake were stunning. The course was in good shape and we especially loved hole #4! Putting was my weakness since the greens were faster than I am used to. Go out and enjoys this course!
Good summer shape
Timberlake is in good shape. Played at 12:30 and saw no other players on the course. Fairways are in great shape. They cut their greens very short and fast. Many greens are hard and difficult to hold. We saw very few if any ball marks on greens. Played there many times and it’s in good summertime shape. Looked like the greens needed more water.
Course in Good Shape
Tees, Fairways, and Greens in very good shape. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Beautiful course with several holes having view of Lake Murray.
Greens and fairways are in good shape. One of the better courses we play in the Columbia area. Great value for the price.
Timberlake is one of my favorites & we play it several times a year.
Good layout. Course was in awful condition. Not too crowded.
Timberlake is a very good course with a varied and interesting layout. Most courses in SC including Timberlake are lagging about a month behind in fairway and green grasses due to an early warm spell followed by freezing temps. The cold snap stunted the new grass . As it warms Timberlake will greatly improved as will other SC courses. I might be more enthused than usual as I had 4 birdies and shot a 75. I am usually in the 80’s . The bumpy greens didn’t affect me.
Good challenge but fair.
Greens were fast and the fairways well kept. The course layout next to the lake made for a wonderful backdrop. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. Worth a visit.
Could be Better
Cart paths need help. With better upkeep this course would be great. Maybe mow the grass and water. Landscape features would help. How about a chipping green to replace the one sold to developers. Overall a good layout though.
I think the course is not being maintained as it should. The tee boxes are bad, the traps were horrible with very little sand and washed out., no excuse even with the amount of rain.
