When Timberlane Golf & Recreation opened in 1959 as Timerlane Country Club, it was the first private golf club on the west bank of the Mississippi. The oaks planted at that time have beautifully matured, adding to both the scenery and difficulty of the golf course. Robert Trent Jones, Sr. designed the course, crafting a challenging test that has been ranked as one of the most difficult golf courses in the country. You'll have to contend with 80 strategically placed sand bunkers and 17 different water hazards. While the course is not overly punishing, you'll have to be prepared to have every aspect of your game tested. Before tackling Timberlane''s golf course you may find it helpful to warm up using the club's all-grass driving range and you can use the large putting green to practice with putting, chipping, and sand play.

Nice Course

The course is in very good condition, for New Orleans this time of year. We’ve played 2 other similarly priced courses and agreed this is the one we’ll come back to.

Friday golf

I was very surprised at the number of people playing on a Friday. With that said, the staff was friendly and accommodating, the pro shop was clean and neat. They had several demo clubs that could be used and a few sets of rental clubs. The course layout is very nice and challenging. Fairways are narrow and lined with houses. The greens were a bit slower than what I am used to in Florida. From the white tees the course measures 6200 yards. One of the par 3’s measured 200, a little long for me. Overall, I enjoyed the course and will play it again.

Great greens right now

Fairways need some more work
Pace of play was horrible, after 2.5 hours we made it to the 10 tee
I quit and left

I think they overbooked, every tee we were waiting on 2 separate groups to tee off!

Great Surprise!

Best condition course in area! Played English Turn & TPC - great names, but not great condition. Wasted money on other courses. Timberlane had good grass tees through greens. Course presented a challenge with layout - especially in a breeze. Staff were great. Great value! Good amenities will only get better since Arnold Palmer Golf Management took over. Planning new carts, renovations on cart paths & course. Greens were true - Bermuda quick down grain & slow into grain. A definite play if in area - you won’t be disappointed.

Greens and traps

Overall good experience. Found staff to be accommodating and friendly.
Greens had been sanded recently ans a few had surface blemishes. Basic winter conditions. Traps did not seem consistent from hole to hole.

Not Enough Time

Greens were a little sandy. Course was in good shape. Had a foursome in front that wouldn’t let me play through so couldn’t finish all 18. Great course though for the money.
