Do not play this course until the greens fill in. The

holes were large especially on the back nine. Some were not filled with sand but even then the putts would wobble in every direction. The should knock $20 off the price when the greens are this bad. Not worth the money. We paid $48 (weekly, senior, mid-day,non-resident)

Overall, the course was in pretty good shape, but the recently aerated greens needed a lot more sand on them. They weren't even close to smooth. Some holes appeared to have no sand in them at all.

The new bunkers make the course look so much better! Some of the parts of the course struggled a bit with the excess water we’ve had lately but other than that, the course is in pretty good shape. The greens were in good shape even though they were a bit slow because they obviously couldn’t cut them because of all the rain. So happy the course is in much better shape because I live very close and it’ll be nice to play here more often!

Thank you for your excellent observations. Nice job recognizing the green speed being due to less mowing because of the recent rain. Great to have you out!

We're sorry you had a bad experience. We do monitor pace of play and foursomes are expected to finish in 4 to 4.5 hours. Groups of less than four will usually play faster, though it will feel slow if they are behind foursomes.

Carts can run out of power sometimes even when they appear charged. We're not sure why it would have taken that much time to get a replacement cart to you, unless the new cart attendant needed to stop for several groups on the way out (to avoid disturbing them) and just wasn't sure how to proceed. You are welcome to contact us directly to discuss your concerns.

Again we apologize and thank you for playing Timbers.

Thank you for coming out. We're very happy you enjoyed your round. The tee boxes on a few par 3s will have divots in spots this time of year and we're working on that. The rest of the course is in good shape as you said, and that includes full recovery from aerification. Thank you again and we hope to see you back at Timbers very soon.

Poor aeration process made the greens way too bumpy Pricing should have been even less due to that. Normal pricing is too high based on competition. Comparison to the Woodlands, Rattlewood, and even Waverly Woods (still too expensive).

Thank you for your feedback. Aerification is a necessary process and fortunately it's temporary. Our greens are healing nicely though we understand that some holes may have had some top dressing washed out from the large amounts of rain we experienced.

We hope you'll compare our Players Club pricing to the courses in the area and discover that our members enjoy prices and benefits comparable or superior to our competition,, even after massive improvements to the course and clubhouse. Thanks again for your patronage.

Timbers of Troy is a great course but in order to preserve it, why open it in weather conditions whereby the course is unplayable. Because I used Golf Now to book my round on Saturday (Hot Deal) I could not cancel. Hey, I'm fine with that but what ticked me off was having to play in constant rain with standing water on the course. I understand that closing courses due to weather is undesirable and it's a financial hit but beating up the course (which it was clearly taking) cost money as well to repair. I'll revisit Timbers in the future but they should take note as to what Montgomery county did that same day .... They closed most if not all of their courses.

Thank you for your comment and for coming out even in bad weather. If you booked a "hot deal" through Golfnow you should've been able to ask Golfnow for a credit or raincheck. Several inches of heavy rain fell that night so some wash out was likely. Thanks.
