When renowned course architects Billy Casper and Greg Nash were asked to design Timber Creek Golf Course, they envisioned a 27-hole golf destination that would stretch across 178 acres of rolling terrain. With fairways partitioned by 200-year-old heritage oak trees and 142 sand traps peppered across the course, the Timber Creek course presents an obstacle-laden 6,500-yard layout for clubbers of all abilities. Lakes and waterfalls also come into play on both the front nine of the 18-hole Timber Creek course and the nine-hole Sierra Pines course, adding scenic challenges and making the courses navigable by golf carts or golf bags that inflate into hovercrafts. A staff led by two PGA instructors presides over Timber Creek’s golf academy, where golfers can hone their tee-to-green skills in lessons and clinics. Days that start on the dew-kissed fairways can end at Timbers at the Lodge, where mahogany-hued wood paneling surrounds guests as they dine on beer-battered cod filets, veal marsala, new-york steaks, and more from an eclectic dinner menu.

The duo of 18-hole courses, Woodcreek Golf Club and Diamond Oaks Golf Course lie side by side, making it easy for guests to sneak in a double-header. The former, a par-72 track, unravels amongst mature oak trees and native wetlands, while the latter, a Ted Robinson-designed classic open since 1953, accommodates the skill spectrum with three sets of tees and straight fairways. Guests can fine-tune their games on the night-lit driving range and chipping green, or head to the pro shop to stock up on the latest golf gear, including drivers, designer shirts, and blow horns for waking up napping caddies.
A municipal golf course under the jurisdiction of the City of Roseville, Woodcreek Golf Club entreats golfers to a challenging mix of forested terrain and native wetlands. As players navigate the 18-holer tucked inside golf carts or riding their 9-iron like a bucking bronco, they must surmount the many challenges laid out by architect Robert Muir Graves, such as water on eight holes and hard dogleg turns. Aside from the traditional round, the club also offers a lighted driving range for after-dusk practice sessions as well as the sport of footgolf, a hybrid between golf and soccer.
