Nice Course - Recommended

Timberlin is a municipal course in Berlin, CT. Hadn't played there for more than 5 years. Course was in very good conditions - fairways, rough, greens, tees all very good. Only nit was bunkers needed to be raked. Pace of play was good @ 3:50 for 18. Staff friendliness could be better, we were hassled by the ranger on our 12th tee for no reason. He complained that we hadn't caught the group in front who had tee'd off 20 mins before us, really?

Golf with co-workers

The weather was really nice and the golf course staff was really friendly. The tee box, fairways and all the green was in really good condition. Playing here is a bonus for the price we paid for. The pace of play was under four hours, considering we were playing behind a golf tournament. We really enjoy yourself, no rushing we took our time and we all played really really good and everi went home happy thanks again Golfnow!

Best Course in Area

Greens were tricky but fair. Fairways were 4 Star. Rough was extremely well kept and challenging but fair. Starter was very friendly and accommodating.

Overall, this was a really nice course and experience. Very busy, yet well coordinated and priced lower than the course's beauty and layout should mandate.

Good

Friendly staff and the starter. Green is good condition. The pace is a little bit slow but endurable. Fairway is good and the rough should be a little bit trimmed.

Surprise Charges at Course

I was charged an additional $5.75 to ride in the cart as a single even though NOTHING was posted on Teeoff's site for this tee time and NOTHING was posted in the Pro Shop. The person behind the counter (where I had to wait 4-5 minutes for him to get off the phone with a friend) simply slid a piece of paper at me stating that the charge was due to a shortage of carts. Now there was only 3 of us in our tee time and the other two players elected to ride together, so I was stuck with the extra charge...totally unfair.

I tried calling the Pro Shop. I was told that the $5.75 was charged in error but got nothing as to why the charge was not disclosed on Tee Off nor why nothing is formally posed in the Pro Shop in full view.
