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.

Bad shape

Greens are really bad right now, and fairways need cutting. No Marshall’s on course on a weekend. Pace was horrible.

Good course

The course is in surprisingly decent shape in spite of all the rains. The greens were pretty good.They had some bad spots, but overall not bad. Fairways were cut as much as possible, but there were still many wet spots. Forget about any roll. Overall we had a great day. They have done a great job considering the weather.

We did NOT play. Golf now booked a tee time at a golf course that was closed. Timberlane Golf Club was closed for the July 4th holiday and we were unable to play. Golf Now would not acknowledge the golf course was closed even though the Timberlane website stated it was closed for the holiday and no one answered the phone at the golf course.
This is not the first time GolfNow has accepted tee times at a location that was closed or was not aware that Golf Now was booking tee times.

Ignore the course rating.......the survey forces youo to enter this information to submit the survey.

Awesome Pricing for this course

I have played multiple courses in Nola, and this course might possibly be the best bang for your buck in that area. Was very impressed by the condition of the course for what I paid. The greens weren’t great,, and they were repairing two of them, but overall, very pleased. I would say something about the pace of play being slow, but I was by myself and I’m sure it’s not the same guys out there everyday.

Trash . Go play Lakewood

The girl at the front counter needs to improve her attitude. The greens are garbage , the fairways are long and they let s group of 5 seniors out who don't let people play though. This place is a joke.

Bad time to raise the green fee.

I’ve played this course multiple times for the price $23-$35. The greens were really nice. In fact we stop playing a course not too far from here because the greens were terrible We had to pay today at $45 the greens were atrocious.

Good Value

Played on Memorial Day, no starter so tee time was out the window. Fivesomes going off in front of us. Went out as a single when the rest of my group joined with another group to make another fivesome. Played in a little less than four hours after several groups let me play through.

The layout of the course is old school. The condition is middle of the road. Greens need help. Bunkers are shabby.

Beautiful course with all the old oak trees. Plenty of hazards. Greens a little rough due to recent aeration.

Fairways need some works. It’s only spring and the fairways is already hard. I can’t imagine when summer comes how much harder it gets
