On my top 5 in ENC list!

Live in Jacksonville, NC... Wife, daughter and I played today! The girls shoot between a 95-110. I'm a mid-80s golfer. This course was great for the whole family! It offered an acceptable level of challenge, the greens roll fast and true! The elevation change is great fun considering how many courses in our area are flat or have man made changes (that just aren't as fun as the natural terrain). This course is right up there with Cutter Creek in Ayden, and the price is phenomenal! The interesting mix of six par 3s and five par 5s is great and really allows for scoring if you play it well off the tee! We plan to go back at least monthly!

Great find!

My son and I were passing through the area and stopped in for a round. We're both single-digit handicappers and found this to be a really enjoyable and well-designed course. A little bit of everything with a lot of variation. It was challenging from the back tees, but still very playable if we didn't hit absolutely perfect shots. I also much prefer courses like this that are spread out in a loop as opposed to just fairways that run back and forth like stripes. GREAT value for the money. If we lived in the area, we would play here often.

Fun Really fun

6 par 3s. 5 par 5s. 7 par 4s. Par 71
Course was as fun as I could have hoped for really enjoyed how the cart paths ran out into the fairways and didn't start till you got next to the green on most holes no wet spots on the course as opposed to the course I played last week will definitely play this again can't say enough about the layout the architect of this course should get more work he designed a true fun to play course. Landing areas on par fives were wide par threes are challenging. Bentgrass greens are rare around here and these rolled true. The rough was cut low easy to find balls which keeps that pace and play comfortable. No bare spots to be found in Fairway or rough I didn't need to improve My lie in the winter that's so rare. This was a must play for me for quite sometime I wish I would have done it sooner and can't wait to do it again.

Worth the Drive

I played this course midweek after seeing good reviews online. I live in Raleigh, so it was an hour plus drive, but it's worth the trip.

The course is unique with a linksy feel at times but also a couple tight tree lined holes. It's a mix of rural and neighborhood as a couple holes literally have a tee box, new home construction and a corn field all within 100 feet. Greens were in great shape and the staff was very friendly...and appreciative that I was out there.

I played 36 as a single, breezing through the first 18 in the morning. I got stuck behind the senior men's group for the second 18, but still an enjoyable time.

Worth the drive!

Great course

This is a hidden gem. It is challenging but fair. The layout is great with a mixture of long and short holes. The staff is friendly and helpful. They had just plugged and sanded the greens - the only negative - but when they come back this fall, the course will be perfect and greens fast. Great value for money. A must play if you are in the are.

Good Value

Not bad at all for the value. Tee boxes , greens , and fairways were in nice shape. A few of the low lying greens were soggy to the point of being muddy around the fringes. Too be fair it rained heavily the day before. Staff is super nice. My only legitimate gripe was lack of fairway yardage markers on some holes. But this seems to be an unfortunate trend on a lot of courses. Better bring a GPS or you’ll be lost on distance. This is my 3rd or 4th time playing here in about a decade. A very comfortable and laid back environment for golf. You’ll like it.

Golf Now Reservation Not Found

Although my Golf Now Tee Time wasn’t in their system and I had a confirmation number they made room for my group. Hard to believe the course could need water with all the rain we’ve had in the past 6-7 months but it was very dry. Even being dry it was in good shape. Greens were amazing! Multiple sprinkler heads were leaking which lead to very wet areas around several greens. Didn’t visit every bunker but the ones I was in hadn’t been raked in quite some time. Definitely recommend playing here and we will be back. Wish it was closer.

Hidden Gem

This is great course especially for those who like a shorter distanced course. Long ball hitters could take extreme advantage of several holes. One of the most fun tracks I’ve played in the area and it’s a great value for price. Greens are very fast right now which I personally enjoy. Can’t wait to play in the heat of summer to see the difference.

Great course for wintertime play.

Timberlake is a great course for wintertime play. Well worth the drive from the Triangle. Greens in really good condition considering it's late Janruary.

Pleasant Surprise

With the exception of the greens that need to be aerated, the course was in fine shape. Challenging layout for all skill levels. Somewhat unique in that there are 5 par 5s and 6 par 3s. Would definitely play here again.
