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.

Recently renovated course looking great. Greens in great condition all around as well as fairways. Challenging layout will test your skills for a fun round.

Terrible

Tee’d off Friday at 2:09. Played first 9 holes in 1 hour 40 min. Currently Back nine we were 1 hour 20 min and sitting on 12. A Marshall came through and said a dog fight went off at 1230 and mr Koosa plays real slow and will not let anyone play through.

Guess this is why koosa golf has such a bad rep.

Terrible Greens

This course have severely went down. This use to be one of the best course around. Now it's one of the worst. They have not taken care of the greens. It basically like putting on a baseball infield. More dirt than grass. Don't try to read the greens for putting it's useless, because it mainly just dirt. Fairway is excellent after that nothing to brag about. This was a wasted 38.00

Horrible!

I’ve played this course quite a few times over the years. Used to have out of town friends and business colleagues experience the beauty and fun of this course. It seems to be getting worse every year from how nice it once was. The greens (dirt beds) are horrible! What was once a nice beautiful course with some fun challenges has now lost its beauty from so many trees being cleared out. It has and is continuing to become a cow pasture type course the way it’s being cleared. Sad. I will never play it again nor will I ever recommend it.

Horrible- should be shut down for rebuilding.

Don’t waste your hard earned money!
Every green is bad, no grass on greens, tees are not even groomed..
It is really sad how bad it really has gotten.

Greens were probably some of the worst I have ever seen. This place needs a lot of work.

Show me the Greens!

The greens were really bad as well as tee boxes. It is a good track, hoping the course comes around in a couple of months before I return. They smdid not have my Golf Now reservation on the books.

Needs some improvement

Greens need a ton of help. For price and location this course should be in better shape. You can see some improvements being made on ponds but the tees, fairways and greens are very bare.

Golf now tee time

Booked a tee time on golf now drove 45 minutes to find out they closed course early. Some rain earlier in day but absolutely gorgeous for the second half of day. If you book I'd recommend calling in advance.

Greens are BAD right now.

Greens are half sand/half just dormant or dead grass. You get to watch your putted ball hop, skip, knock and then die on sand. Not sure why because no other course around is like this. They were heading this direction before winter 2021 and have just gotten worse.
