Terrible greens, incredibly unfriendly staff

Nothing worse than paying $70 for the worst greens in Houston. Upon finishing up a horrible round, we were actually screamed at by a staff member (from home 1) who believed we were parked close to the green on hole 18. Extremely unprofessional. Will not be back.

Overall not bad. Two greens, 3 and 7 on creekside are lost. Dirt patches all over. Unputtable.

Great place to play and have a beer after the round.

We played The Pines and Timber Trails. The course was in great shape. We had a great time in the restaurant following our round. The food and drink were refreshing, and Sierra provided great service. We look forward to returning to Timber Creek in the near future.

No better way to spend a Friday

Took a few clients out to Timber Creek for a round of golf. When I booked the tee time, the staff informed me that the greens hadn't quite transitioned for the summer. They provided half price greens fee. When I showed up, the staff was very friendly and reminded me of the current conditions. After playing a few holes, I could tell the current condition of the greens were abnormal. The entire course was well maintained and provided a challenging, but fun layout.

Considering all the rain recently, course was not in bad shape overall

Greater Houston area has had a tremendous amount of rainfall so far this year. Yesterday, the area by Timbercreek got a tremendous amount of rain. I played in Little John Golf League tournament at Timber Creek today. We played Pines and Timber Trail 9s. Not real fond of what Timbercreek uses in their bunkers. It is more like crushed gravel than sand. Very heavy. The bunkers had not been worked. So, they were packed and had lots of standing water but were still playable.
It was Cart Path Only, as expected. The tee boxes were pretty good. Not much standing water on the tee boxes. The fairways were also in pretty good shape. We played Lift Clean and Replace which helped so you did not have to hit mud balls.
At a glance, the greens did not look all that bad but there definitely was lots of areas where the grass was pretty thin or there were very small bare spots. I am guessing this was due to all the rain we have had but cannot say for sure. For the most part, the greens putted fairly well. Only had a few putts that bounced around due to the bare spots.
The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. The food in the grill is very good too.
Always enjoy playing Timbercreek. Hopefully their greens improve as the weather gets better.

Challenging

I've been playing golf in the Houston area for nearly 25 years now but had never been to Timber Creek until today. Very friendly staff and well managed from starter to cart girl to pro shop. We played The Pines/Timber Trails and I actually enjoyed the The Pines better even though Timber Trails is their "signature" nine. Timber Trails was much tighter with some forced carries.

Nice Surprise

I've been playing golf in the Houston area for nearly 25 years now but had never been to Timber Creek until today. Very friendly staff and well managed from starter to cart girl to pro shop. We played The Pines/Timber Trails and I actually enjoyed the The Pines better even though Timber Trails is their "signature" nine. Very nice layout, wide fairways, very well maintained. Can run it up to green if you choose to do so and not many forced carries.

No homes, just trees, creeks and excellent Riviere golf

This is one of Houston's best daily fee courses for several reasons, not the least of which is that it's 27 holes of quality golf on a beautiful piece of property with no homes. It's also a terrific minimalist design by the late Houston-area architect Jay Riviere, who said he drew some of his inspiration from Winged Foot, where he once worked as an assistant pro. Though it's not quite Winged Foot, Timber Creek is solid throughout, with many memorable holes, plenty of doglegs, a few hazards to cross and generally pretty good condtions. Add a nice golf shop, practice facilities, good eats and a friendly staff, and you've got a great place to hang out every day of the week.

My daughter and I played this course and it was very enjoyable. My daughter loves it and wishes it could be her high school home course.
