Timber Creek Golf Course
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.<p>
