Timber Creek - Region 2
Reviewed by:  Cyle Greenwell - St Bonifacius, MN - Cyle shoots in the 80s.
Review Summary:  This is your average weekend golfer course. Some great holes. Some good holes. Some poor holes. The course is nothing special, yet you can except some level of quality. Regular price is about $50 w/ cart. I feel it should be closer to $40.
Conditions: The course is in good shape. There are a couple holes that stay consistently poor all year. The sandtraps were hard, but easy to get out of.
Scenery: Nice country setting. Very few houses on, or near, the course.
Layout: Most holes are fairly open. If you hit a poor tee shot, you can usually play from the rough or the next fairway over. Last time I played there, I didn't lose a single ball. Very little water to speak of. Pretty easy course to navigate. You may just shoot your season best here.
Services: Online Tee Times. Check-in is fine. Good assortment of snacks and beverages available in the Club House. I was offered a beverage out on the course just once. Soda machines and free water available on the course.

Timber Creek - Region 2
Reviewed by:  Bob Oberaigner - Waverly MN. Bob shoots in the 70s.
Review Summary:  This course is closet to my house so I play it 5 times a year maybe. Course is not a top tier course but it is entertaining to play for the right price. Course is scenic and has a few good holes to go with a few bad ones, including the worst dogleg right I've ever played. It's worth the money they charge
Conditions: Average-to below average
Scenery: Average-to above average
Layout: Average
Services: Poor, alomost no real food available

Timber Creek - Region 2
Reviewed by:  Nicky Backspin - Watertown MN. Nicky shoots in the 70s.
Review Summary:  This is one course that I can't really say anything good about. Well, the price was pretty cheap, so I guess that will do.
Conditions: The conditions were average at best. The greens were very inconsistent. One was hard and fast, the next was soft and slow.

The tee boxes were terrible. Uneven and in tough shape. I teed up several times outside of the markers because of the conditions. The fairways on several holes were pretty bad. I had a few deadpan lies in the middle of the fairway. Yuck.

Scenery: Decent scenery. Lots of country to see, only two or so on-course homes.
Layout: This is where the course is weak. There are several holes that are just senseless. A few par four's that require short irons off the tee with tight dog-legs and blind shots. If you don't know the course you will be clueless on what club or direction to play.

The opening par five leaves a blind second shot around a dog-leg, the second hole is a longer par three , miss the green and the ball is in the muck.

A par five on the back is double dog-legged and from the tee you have no clue how far to hit the ball.

5 or 6 senseless holes that ruin the round. Groups on the tee have no idea on what club to hit so they end up walking out to get an idea and this backs everything up.

We had 2-3 groups on many of the tees scratching their heads. Ugh!
Services: No ranger to be found and the pace of play was terribly slow. a 5+ hour round because of slow play is unacceptable.

I've played this course a few times and each visit was like the last one. Slow and frustrating.
