Great Value and personel.

Our group tries to play Timberlin at least every three weeks. It is by far one of our favorite courses. The reason is not only the course layout and conditions but primarily because of the personnel from the restaurant staff to the starter and Marc, the pro. Can't wait to play it again.

Great except for..

Our foursome had a great time playing Timberlin today until we got to the 18th tee. A guy with a cart w/clubs was putting down seed in the divots. I guess he gets free golf compensation. This freakin guy was right in our landing area for our drives for a good 5 minutes. Never waved us up. I just went ahead and hit and almost Hit him.
Two other players had this idiot directly in their line of sight with his cart blocking them for their approach shots.

We complained to him once we got closer. He was totally clueless.

Saw him inside talking to the counter guy complaining about “us”. ?!

Someone needs to to train this guy to properly work WITH the golfers on the golf course.

The course was awesome , even with the downed trees on 10th hole!!!!

Consistently Excellent Play

I just discovered Timberlin last year, and it immediately went into my regular rotation as one of my favorites. Conditions are always good tee to green. The greens run true. There are multiple unique holes, and you never get the same look two holes in a row. You always go off on time, and rounds on weekends take 4:15 so the pace is always good. The staff is always very friendly, and try to ensure your experience there is a great one. I strongly recommend it!!

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.

Love the staff and course

I love Timberlin because it is a wonderful course where I feel very comfortable playing even though my skill level needs much work. We are so lucky to have it here in Berlin.

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
