Great course with great rates

My experience with Timber Pointe has always been great. The course is always well kept, and the staff has always been great. The rates are fantastic, especially for 18 and under golfers playing 18 holes.

Great October conditions....except

Almost perfect conditions for October. Friendly staff. The only real problem we had here is that they allow spectators which always makes for a long round especially when you're following it. A foursome with 3 carts just seemed to make them play slower. Plus, I think they they thought they were good? It was quite frustrating. All in all a good course, just a bit of a purist when it comes to etiquette and when a course promotes poor etiquette it leaves a bad taste. Maybe you'll have a different experience.

Slow play, bumpy ride

Course was ok, cart paths virtually non existent. A few holes were awkward to see and the routing was difficult for first timers. Bar was nice, barkeepers were busy with the phone too often to provide excellent service.

Wow! My new favorite course in Illinois

Staff went absolutely above and beyond for my friend and I. I picked a bad day and it rained heavily for 2 hours. Staff ensured I could have full refund but also let me delay my tee time until it cleared. When it did they sent us out with large towels to ensure we could keep everthing dry.
The course was amazing, play your level and pick the tee that suits of the 5 running. I played second longest. Normally expect boring old length being the main challange but a very strategic course. Some shorter some long but plenty of risk reward shots on offer. Forget about just pulling driver you have to think your way around this one. A great mix of well placed bunkers with very well maintained waste areas, some trees, long grass, proper rough cuts and plenty of fairways winding through it all. Top marks on all fronts! How did I play here for $20 with cart! Forget the $100 country clubs with there ridiculously manicured greenery and not enough thought to the game itself (believe me I've played many of them). Get out there and play this place, I will definitely be back!!!!

Crabgrass approaches?

Disappointing visit due to course condition. Layout is poor with some long distances between holes. Cart path golf with approaches riddled with crabgrass, hard and pretty dry. Greens were ok with spongy tee boxes. Airport very close with planes landing approach over the course and pretty frequent when we were there. I will avoid this track the next time I am in the area for a stay.

Great golf course

Stop and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings.

This day was busy for weekday afternoon and was slower than usual, but it was a beautiful day to be on the golf course, and Timber Pointe one of the area's more picturesque.

So enjoy the course the pace could be a bit slow

Solid Course

I booked the course with a great deal through golfnow otherwise I wouldn't play the course at the normal rate. For the Saturday of Labor Day weekend was pleasantly surprised by the pace of play, actually teed off about 10 min early. Course was in fine shape, only complaints are about the bunkers and greens. Bunkers were inconsistent and the greens were the slowest I've played on all year. Absolutely had to crush any putt going uphill.

Friendly Decent Open Course Layout, Easy to Play.

I have played the Point before several years ago, and I got a great GN deal to play this course close to home. So I wanted to play golf , and I was paired up with 3 really great golfers, and I held my own with them, But this course even from the Blue's is a simple course. I holed out with 40-39=79. Very forgivable course. Great for beginners, and couples to enjoy. Great for friends to get together and play. The greens were in ok shape, I had to fix a lot of ball Divots on each green to putt in line with my ball. But I did like the roll on the greens ,semi quick. For the dog days of August the fairways were in decent shape as well. Had to fluff my ball to get decent lie for my shots, other wise I enjoyed my round with the guys I played with. Add the yardage and play from the Gold tees if you want any kind of a challenge here at the Point. other wise this course is average to short even from the blue tees. Traps needed work all the way around the course, if in them they were hard and crusty.

Timber Point - 1st time

this is a good course to play, well laid out and gives you lots of options, between driver & other clubs off the tee. greens have lots of slope and were hard, but not too fast. couldn't hardly stop a ball on the greens even with a wedge, so play to the front. got a great HOT DEAL thru Golf Now & will go back for that price

Worth it

Its a great course,,, tough greens . Today was very windy though.. Great staff, nice bar and patio area.. Greens are deceptively fast even when it needs a mowing. I do wish the golfers would take better care of the greens, lots of ball marks on some holes.

Great experience all around

Loved the course, 2nd time I played. Unfortunately the both times that I have played, the weather did not cooperate. 1st time rainy and in the 30's and second time 40 mile hour winds and very chilly. So really could not get a fair assessment of the course. Course without weather is very challenging, which is very deceiving from the initial look from the clubhouse. The greens were tough because it looked like they were just airrated. Fairways were beautiful and if you like sand, this is the place to be. Staff was just amazing both time I played. They were very informative and extremely hospitable. I will definitely be back and bring friends out to experience this great challenge. Other course representatives should take customer service lessons from the staff at Timber Point. Thanks for a great experience.
