When Timberlane County Club opened in 1959, it was the first private golf club on the west bank of the Mississippi. The oaks planted at that time have beautifully matured, adding to both the scenery and difficulty of the golf course. Robert Trent Jones, Sr. designed the course, crafting a challenging test that has been ranked as one of the most difficult golf courses in the country. You'll have to contend with 80 strategically placed sand bunkers and 17 different water hazards. While the course is not overly punishing, you'll have to be prepared to have every aspect of your game tested. Before tackling Timberlane C.C. golf course you may find it helpful to warm up using the club's all-grass driving range and you can use the large putting green to practice with putting, chipping, and sand play.

Played hooky from work and decided to sneak a round in. Booked a tee time for 9:10 at $20. Couldn’t pass up the deal! I don’t like if your not a member you have to park outside the gate and walk in. Checked in and got my cart. Then drove out the gate to my car to load my clubs up. Got to the tee box and found another guy there waiting for the group ahead to play. Found out he head the same tee time as me and decided to play together. For a Tuesday at 9:10 in the morning it was pretty crowded. Had a foursome in front of us and a foursome behind us. Wondered the whole time if any of our bosses knew we weren’t actually sick and just wanted to play golf.... Course was in great condition. Had a pretty epic rainy day a few days ago and the course was dry minus one spot. Greens were in good shape as were the fairways. Like the layout hate the sand traps..... Will most definitely be going back. I

The people were nice, we got a low price, and we finished in 3 hours, but the condition of the course was rough. I'd play there again only for a similarly I low price.

Strange how the bar/restaurant was closed when we finished at 4pm on a Sat. So the only thing you get to drink was water after a hot day. And to top it off with no cart person the entire round, it was a little upsetting. I've never seen a club house lock the doors and turn out the lights at 4pm on Sat.

Course is in pretty good shape. We ended up playing the front nine twice. No starter or course official add in a smaller tournament and a single!! back nine was a nightmare. Fortunately after waiting 15 minutes on 10th tee box we made the jump and had a great nine. greens fast. I like this course

Played Timberlane for first time in 35 years. Forgot how much I enjoyed that golf course. Great layout, not just one straight hole after the next as so often in this part of the world. Course only in fair shape, but after all, it's February.

Great practice tee and putting green.

Staff friendly and accommodating.

Highly recommended.

Beautiful day on the course with the exception of pace of play and greens in need of attention. The course is not very difficult but the round took longer to play than it should have because of the slow play ahead of me. The course was also very crowded the day I played.

Overall good course when booked with a discount via GolfNow. Exception is the clerk/cashier handling the check in at the clubhouse. She needs to learn some serious people skills and curb the attitude. I am not the only player/customer that feels this way. This not a 1st time experience with this particular individual. Other staff have been friendly and accommodating.

Played this course a year ago. Seams as though most golf courses here are going down hill. What a difference in a year. Very good shape. Greens a little slow, but true. Excellent value using Golf Now.

Great course layout/routing. Tee boxes in good shape. Fairways and rough so so but very playable.

Greens much better than they used to be. Bunkers much better than they used to be. Nice chipping and putting green with good greenside bunker for practicing. Nice range with grass or artificial mats - your choice. Staff is fine with me walking front nine and taking cart for back nine. Excellent club sandwiches in restaurant. Great value when they post their $15.00 hot deal and still good for the $25 or $30 rates. Occasionally crowded but I played 18 holes in 3 hours yesterday walking the front and riding the back.
