Good course for the value

Good course with value for the recreational golfer. A nice combination of challenging holes and holes to score well on regardless of your level. Fairways and greens are in fair condition but totally playable.

Great course, poor conditions for full cost

Course layout is great with some challenges. The white tees are short so blues is a lot more challenging. I was very disappointed having cart path only for all holes after 2 days of of no rain. After paying $70 and receiving a hot dog meal voucher to go with round I soon found out why cart path and hot dog treat was given. I do understand some courses don’t drain well and sometimes a few holes may be cart path only after rain even a few days later. However after a few holes I realized the reason cart path only is because most of the fairways are in very bad shape. I complain to maybe PT pro who was working and was told he doesn’t make much and can’t do anything about it. For the money payed it’s not worth the money as well as pace of play because cart path only. Not sure what happened but I would not recommend this course at all because of this. I have played a lot of rounds recently on a lot of different courses and have had green issues because of weather but no fairways torn up that you can’t even ride a cart down it. Hard to go on reviews and I’ve never done one on a course but had to because management knows it’s a problem and isn’t compensating enough for it. A hot dog meal isn’t good enough. Also after second complaint there was small compensation given which was acceptable. So check for cart path only before hand and you know why the offers are for walking.

Nice course, fairways have issues and greens are slow

Ive played here in the past, but has been a while. Layout is good and I enjoyed the tee shot set ups, however the fairways have issues and are about 40% dirt, so you have to roll your ball over to find some grass. The greens are in nice shape, except all of the ball marks others are too lazy and must feel entitled not to fix. The greens are also pretty slow, maybe they didn't cut them due to wetness that morning? Overall a pretty nice track to play even with the cart path only rule.

Not in very good shape

The course is currently not in very good condition. I haven't played it in years, and for the steep greens fees, was expecting more. It was cart path only because they are trying to bring back the fairways. Greens and sand traps need attention too. It's a nice track, but needs work!

No GPS

I like this course, but the absence of GPS on the golf carts makes the course harder to play. Yardage is not clearly marked on the course, and if you don't already know the layout of a hole, it isn't clear how the hole plays and there isn't much info on the scorecard.

Great Course, But Another Bad Experience

Timbers at Troy is only 15 minutes from my house so is very convenient. And, the course layout is a nice mix of easy and tough holes. The condition of the course can be sporadic, but today the course was in mostly good condition, except for the usual wet section just in front of the penalty area on #10 and the many many unfixed divots in the fairways (which are the golfers' fault because there is sand on the carts). The bunkers are extremely nice...their bunker renovation of several years ago is holding, because these bunkers had nice sand and a nice depth of sand. The greens were exceptional today as well...rolled fast and true. From tee to green, overall was in good condition. My issue is the same one I've had every time I play here--this course doesn't particularly like women! We were told 2 hours per nine (when the card publishes 2 hrs 15 minutes per nine), and to keep up with the group in front. That's okay, all four of us women have single or low-teen handicaps and play a lot of tournament golf, so we know how pace of play works. However, we waited on the group in front of us every hole, every shot. We, as well as the groups behind us, got behind as a result. We finally played through them and finished the front nine in 2 hours 3 mins! Because of that group, we never saw anyone in front of us and, of course, no one behind us...however, the marshal comes up to us on #12 and tells us we have to catch up with the group in front of us (which we've never seen to this point) and we're on pace to finish in under their 4.5 hr published time. On #13, I finally asked the guy if he went to the groups behind us and asked them to catch up to us, to which he said, "no, I never saw anyone behind you." So...I come away from that interaction that we were spoken to because we were women and he didn't speak to anyone else. If he was trying to monitor pace of play, he should have continued to travel behind us after speaking to us and speak with every group that followed about catching up, but he camped out on #13 and watched us play. And, we finished in 4 hours and 15 minutes...under the published pace. This happens all the time when I play Timbers, except when I'm with men. Frankly, I'm going to patronize courses with better customer care and less discriminatory practices.
