Unfriendly staff

First time and probably the last time I will play this course.Staff in Pro shop are rude and treat people who are not regulars and use GolfNow for Tee Times very poorly.Not sure why this golf course is part of GolfNow if they don’t want people playing there.
Left the pro shop to find the shed with the keys for the cart only to return again to the pro shop for a scorecard as there wasn’t any on any carts.
I never knew that asking for a scorecard at a golf course was a unreasonable request but it sure seemed that way with the person working there.
The course itself was a little wet from all the rain but still very playable. The fairways and tea boxes were in good condition with some standing water but that was to be expected. Most of the greens were in good condition but some had small bare patches and a lot of ball marks
The course layout was good with varying lengths on the par threes and driver is not always the best choice on the par fours.
Golf cart paths are mainly just around the tee boxes and a lot of golfers probably regulars were walking.The pace of play was good as the course wasn’t crowded and we finished in under 3 1/2 hours.
We received more attitude when returning the golf cart and key so decided not to prolong our stay.
Overall I would say that the golf course is good but unless you are a regular or like being treated poorly I would play somewhere else.

Aeration

Always a very nice course but the greens were just aerated and they did not give any indication of this when I booked my tee time on the web site. I was surprised when I was told in the pro shop and was informed that it was posted on social media sites which didn’t help me at all. Nothing on the site where you book tee times.

Always Worth Playing

Note to self...check with golf course BEFORE booking to check aeration schedule. Got there to find front 9 was closed and back 9 was just aerated. Rest of course was in great shape, just don't like playing Planko on the greens!

Timberlin

Challenging course best to stay out of the bunkers as deep cut in the front edges. Offers a challenge keeping out of traps laying up or hitting over ponds or streams. Good challenge for you. I will be back with my friends

Great Course

First time playing Timberlin, Our group enjoyed the experience and thought the course was in excellent condition. It was challenging but fair layout.

We played in the afternoon, a large tournament was finishing; the staff had organized the starting times for afternoon golfers so that the transition from the tourney golfers to afternoon golfers teeing off was seamless. We finished our round in 4 hrs and 15 mins.

The restaurant had a nice menu and selection of beers. The food was excellent. A very welcoming staff from pro shop to restaurant staff.

Overall would suggest Timberlin to any golfer looking for a new course to put on their rotation. We will be back.
