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.

It's been about a year since I last played there. I had a great time then and another great time this time around. I enjoy playing this course even though challenging for me. I always find it in great shape and always will take friends to play here when they come to visit.
I have played Timberlake many times and today’s round was my best ever. They are working to soften some greens which today were better after they punched and sanded greens for the second time this summer. Only complaints today were greens were still bumpy which will improve soon and the sand traps had not been raked today . It’s a good course with some great views of Lake Murray. Very good course for the price.
Good course, but pro and managers are horrible
Played today, course semi crowded. A 5-some was holding up our group of three, another 3-some, and a twosome. We asked a course worker if they could go ask them if could play through, the fivesome said no its a holiday they can wait. At the turn we asked the pro and the managing partner if they could go talk to them. They refused and said it was a non issue. Each golfcart has a sign reminding groups to let faster groups play through so the course must know some golf etiquette, to bad they wont enforce it. Wont be back here.
I don't know if it was the same group, but I was held up by a fivesome as well where they were trying to teach and young boy and a female, neither of whom appeared to be able to hit the ball 100 yards with any club. The lack of courtesy should be an embarrassment because everyone I encountered was friendly and welcoming, including staff and the member I played my first nine holes with. Course was in really good shape, although the greens could have been faster (not that they were bad, but I'm used to Bermuda having more pace than these). Unfortunately, this is the kind of attitude you sometimes find with a club that has members who look down on the fact the course has to have some public play to survive.
I'm looking forward to playing here again, but I fully understand your feelings.
Timberlake has a new head of golf operations who is improving the course. Fairways and greens are very good now. There are some greens that do not hold well but they are committed to improve that. Only course on lake Murray with some Great Lake views and interesting holes.
Great course - slow play
Course in outstanding condition. However play is very slow. No one lets faster players play through.
From tee to greens, conditions are some of the best in SC. The layout is never boring and fair if you hit good golf shots. Will continue to play this course a couple of times a month. Worth the drive from the Upstate.
Course is in great condition. Greens are firm and fast. Be prepared for putts to run out more than you think. I'll certainly play again.
Played masters week, this was the best course we played searching with golfadvisor for a decent course at an affordable price
We were impressed by the entire experience. Clubhouse, dining, pro shop were all top notch. High end homes surround the course but don’t make it tight at all. If I could have rescheduled my other tee times I would have only played here. The pro shop expected the course to improve in the coming months with new staff and the weather.
The course was in very good condition. What impressed me the most was the layout of each hole.
I enjoyed the course and the staff was great working me in after the rain delay
A good course.
Course was in good condition for this time of year. Greens were fast and putted true. Would be nice to see a few earlier Hot Deals. Overall a fun round of golf and I would recommend playing the course.
Fun course to play. Very friendly staff. Fairways had dormant grass but the greens were fairly quick. Would certainly play again when in the area.
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.
