What happened?!

I’ve play over 100 rounds at this course. The past 2 years the price has gone up and quality of this course has gone drastically down hill. Tee boxes were half dead, fairways were half dead and had weeds, the rough hadn’t been cut in over a week, they re did some bunkers and it went horibly wrong, the greens were in very very bad shape. I love this course and it’s design but until this is fixed I will not return. Fall rates after 4pm and still paid 40$. Very sad.

smooth but slow greens

Nice layout. Greens could use some speeding up. Pin placements were not the best. If i was a scratch golfer they would have been fine.

Timber Trace fall golf

Went out on a late fall day. Course in very good shape. One person in the club house. He was very friendly. The temperature was 40-50 degrees while we played. The course is somewhat rolling. Some holes are mostly flat while others will give you side-down-up lies for your approach shots to the green. Holes 10 and 18 have the most elevation change. Greens are a fair challenge. Good sand in the traps.

Timber Course conditions

The fairways and tee boxes were in terrible shape. They have also let all areas in and around the bunkers go, tons of rocks in bunkers and surrounded by tall weeds.
I would not recommend this course for the price they are charging. $50 on weekend
Greens were ok but rest of the course was less than average condition

Good Layout

Nice course with a bit of an up north feel. Some construction going on creating one temporary green. Definitely worth playing especially at price we paid on GolfNow.
