Everything was excellent, as usual, but the greens had been aerated. Most greens were fine but a number of them had way too little sand applied and were extremely bumpy.

This is a beautiful course, well maintained. It is not a course for a bomber to go out and turn in a low round. Shot shaping is necessary for a low score. 3 of the 4 par fives are not reachable in 2, no matter how long you are, without very precise, shaped shots. Greens are well protected. Im not a huge fan of this course because the course design trys to make up for the short length with tough, heavily undulating greens. Unfortunately there are many pin positions that end up being simply unfair. Bottom line is that if you hit all the greens in regulation, you are still going to be over par if you arent below the hole every time. A beautiful course, without a hot deal from GolfNow though, its a bit expensive to be punished with super tough greens all day...

The course was in great shape. The greens were very fast and ran true. The layout is typical of a Northwoods golf course, that being tight tree lined fairways. My problem with the layout is the BIG pine trees that guard at least 4 of the greens. I'm not a fan of being in perfect position in the fairway and having no shot to the green.

Been playing this course for years. Best condition I've ever seen it in. 'Kudos ' to Jerry and course superintendent. Yes, I agree some of the trees are not fair but I guess that's the personality of the course and intent of original designer. Only negative I have are the traps. Very, very rocky. Needs new sand or sifted.

I make a point to play here every summer and am never disappointed. The greens are FAST! Course conditions are always on point. Bunkers have a lot of small pebbles in them but that's due to the type of sand used up here I think. Pace of play is really my only complaint here and its one they've always had. Much of it may not be controllable by the course as some players simply don't understand the concept of letting groups play through, however a ranger actively keeping things moving would be nice...Ps Stay below the cup on the greens or you'll be 3-putting a ton!

Many area courses can be a bit tight but Timber Ridge plays like a full size course with ample fairways and rough. You'd really have to spray one to lose it in the woods. Good length and very good course conditions. Halfway house (you pass it twice) for snacks or drinks. One of the better area courses in my opinion.
