Timbers Review

Very good course. Challenging with narrow fairways. Being late in the season. putting greens were covered in leaves and made this more difficult to maneuver. No drink cart but enjoyed.

Up nort feel

Great course. Staff is very friendly and helpful for first time players, gave me a quick walkthrough before tee off so I knew what to look out for/where to go. Lot of great shot placement holes where u can lay it up perfect or try to rip over a corner to try and gain some strokes back. Well maintained with only a few dry spots here and there. Will definitely be back

Great Stop To/From Northern MI

Very well-maintained course. First three holes are a small loop by the clubhouse and are very open. Hole four goes into the woods and definitely tightens up a bit, but not as much as the ranger warned us about. Very different from 1-3 though. It was about 85 and sunny so made for a long day. The end of the back 9 doesn't have a ton of shade and goes back adjacent to a neighborhood so some good scenery. Greens rolled true and no areas that needed work. Pleasant change from the metro-Detroit courses getting a ton of play. I highly recommend the course and it's 15 minutes off of I-75 near Frankenmuth.

Very good course conditions

The Timbers has a very nice layout— we have only golfed here a few times over the last five years due to playing conditions. That will change now as Management and staff have updated this golf course and are taking excellent care to maintain a well conditioned golf course. The Timbers can now rival The Fortress as a good go to golf course in the area and for much less money!! Keep up the excellent work!!

Can’t beat the value

First time golfing here and I will be back. Definitely enjoyed the course tough but pretty fair. Tight in areas with a lot of dog legs. Half the price of the fortress and still in as good of shape!

This is a Positive Review

I traveled 1.5hrs to play this course based on a 4.9 Golf Advisor Rating.

I was disappointed. Not because it wasn't a good course, just it wasn't a 4.9 course. Strong course just not 5 star. Probably more in range of 4.1. Putting Greens but no range. Pro shop carries basics. Course was in great shape just not 4.9 shape. I would say everything good about The Timbers is in the actual course. Everything else was just ok.

The Other Frankenmuth Course

Found this little gem on the way home from "Up North". About 3-4 mile from the center of Frankenmth. Nice track and conditions were very good. Greens, fairways, and tees all look like bent and were in really good condition. Don;t get up here too often, but will certainly play again.
