First time, but certainly not last

This was my wife and myself's first visit to Timberlin. It will not be our last. Great course and well maintained. Cart paths could use some maintenance but besides that very nice course that will be added to our twice weekly golfing.

Heat Wave!

Today was really hot, but we had a great day. Everything was in good condition. The fairways, greens and all the tee box was really in good shape. I don't mind playing here everyday. All my friends really enjoyed the golf course. They like it so much , they want me to book it again for next weekend.Thanks Golfnow for this great Hot Deal.

Timberlin

I grew up playing this course and I’m in the men’s club this year. Greens are almost fully recovered from aeration. Course is always in good condition. Played 18, the back 9 as a 5 some and still waited every shot. Beautiful day always equals a long round here! So be prepared.

Poor pace of play

There was a super slow 5 some that was allowed to play ahead of us and even at the turn there was nothing done about it . Poor stater that allows this to happen . Took 5 hours to play 18 holes , ridiculous

Totally underrated CT course

Had an absolute blast playing 18 here yesterday with my dad and my brother. Tee boxes and fairways and greens are in great shape. Carts are great. Just an awesome track that I haven’t played before yet most of my life has been in CT. Will play here again immediately

Great public course

The layout and staff are great and normally the course is in nice condition. I was disappointed that the greens were recently airrated (I know that this needs to be done) but there was no mention of this prior to booking our round. I really think that we should have been given a heads up.

Disappointed

Second time down to Timberlin this year. Was extremely disappointed to find out the greens had been punched and no notice was posted on golf now. Which i know they do.

Timberlin May 16th

Got caught in a thunderstorm but people were patient and waited to clear. Golfers in front were a tad slow but things worked out just fine since the weather cooperated later in the afternoon. Greens were fast and in great condition. Nice time overall.
