Timberlake Golf Club in Clinton sits halfway between the Triangle and Wilmington. The classic design is reminiscent of traditional Scottish links courses, featuring a combination of water and pot bunkers as well as large grassy swales. The golf course sprawls across rolling hills, which provide plenty of contours and elevation changes. From the elevated tees, golfers will have a dramatic view of the rugged landscape. The golf course is mostly open though there are a few stands of mature trees that can be troublesome if you're not careful. The cavernous bunkers and carefully molded mounding present formidable challenges that will test even the best golfers. In addition to the golf course, Timberlake also offers a full driving range and practice green as well as tennis courts and an Olympic-sized swimming pool.

Fair but has opportunity

Good layout, through the neighborhood, but needs some TLC with the greens and cart path.

Horrible experience

First off this place should be charged with stealing for charging $55 to play at this hay field. Greens might be worst I’ve ever seen. The staff is very unfriendly and have horrible customer service. Would not recommend playing here for free.

The course layout is OK

The course is nice, but the greens are bad. The greens are punched and sanded with no aeration alert given at the time of booking. In it's current condition, the course is not worth the greens fee charged. The opinion held by our entire foursome. Restructure your fee charged based on course condition.

Timberlake

Played this course 6 months ago with my wife. Putting green was closed at that time as was driving range. Since the club we usually play at was closed for maintence this week my group took a chance on playing Timberlake. We were sorely disappointed. This time putting green was also closed and was heavily sanded with maintenance crew working on it but driving range was open. This time all of the greens were heavily sanded and tee boxes were in poor condition. Things have to improve significantly before we will return.
Golf now should have made us aware of the condition of the course. Very disappointed in Golfnow.

No

So after booking and arriving the clubhouse attendant asked if golfnow explained that we would have to play the front nine twice . At first I thought he was joking, but alas he was not. The greens were being punched on the back nine. The front was punched earlier the in the week. They had so much sand on the greens that it was playing in the traps. No break, no speed, just horrible conditions. I understand the need for maintenance but inform before people pay the asking rate.

Rough Greens & Tee Boxes

The greens and tee boxes were in bad shape. For being the only course on Lake Murray I would really expect them to keep the course in better shape.
