Great and Challenging Course

First time playing here. From the minute we arrived, it was positive. Armen was awesome getting us started and chatting about the course. Course was in great shape, and quite challenging. Food in the restaurant was good. We will be back!

Great course

Our group plays Timberlin at least once a month. We will probably increase our play frequency. Excellent conditions and food. The best part of Timberlin are the people, from Mark, the Pro shop staff, all support staff and of course Armin, the starter. Very polite and friendly. We'll be back.

Timberlin 5 Stars

Armen the starter makes you feel like you’re a VIP. He is polite, courteous and extremely professional. The rest of the course speaks for itself. Please play the course and say hi to Armen he’s an ex Vietnam Nam Marine Veteran!!!

Great course, outstanding deal

Aside from the slow and inexperienced threesome in front of me and my dad, it was a smooth and easy afternoon. Loved the course and the price even more. Will return

The day we played it was “green keepers revenge”, unbeknownst when scheduling the tee time. This made the approach shots and putts very challenging which took away from the experience.

Great Value and personel.

Our group (24) plays Timberlin whenever we get a chance. It is one of our favorites. The course is well kept and laid out comfortably. The restaurant has some really good choices on the menu, haven't picked a bad one yet. The best part of Timberlin is the course personnel and that means everyone. Friendly, courteous and accommodating. Easily a 5 star course. It has become one of our regulars.

COURSE NEEDS RANGERS!!!!

I’ve played this course about a dozen times. I’ve played 18 in around 3.5 hours and also played 18 in over 5.5 hours! The course needs RANGERS! The pace of play is way too slow. There are no rangers driving around telling people to speed it up. There was 12 people on 1 tee box waiting to tee off! Don’t play here if you plan on playing in under 5 hours. If you have time to play slow, this course is for you.

Please pay a ranger $$$ to drive around keeping the pace of play up to par.

2nd attempt

Been here twice now. Pace of play is always pretty bad. Holes get backed up on occasion. Course conditions are nice but there’s no hole that has me dying to come back. If price was lower and I had nothing to do all day I’d consider coming back but stinks how crowded it can be.
