The Timbers at Troy

A decent little course - the fairways and traps could be in better shape though. There were quite a few larger stones in the traps - which could ding up a sand wedge pretty badly. The fairways were a bit burnt up - but considering the summer we've had, you can't really blame the groundskeepers.

This is a good local course. They have a nice practice facility and the course is always in good shape. The only complaint I have is the bunkers. Some of them are hard and full of 1/2" to 1" stones.

My boyfriend treated me to a round of golf as part of my birthday celebration this past weekend (yesterday, as a matter of fact).  My boyfriend is an AVID golfer...he plays an average of 6 days a week, and literally 'studies' golf during every waking hour.  He is part of 3 different groups who travel to Myrtle Beach to play in tournaments during the Spring, Summer, and Fall.  I, too, absolutely love to play golf, but not to that extent.  I say all of this to give the reader an idea of our level of exposure to the game and different courses.  

We were extremely pleased with the quality and condition of this course, and the professionalism of the staff at the course.  The course is 'tight' (narrow) and very challenging, which is why it is a wonderful practice course if you're preparing to play in Myrtle Beach.  Although the tee boxes were not in perfect condition, and a few of the bunkers need cleaning up, the fairway was beautiful and well manicured.  As for the aesthetics, it's really a gorgeous course; very scenic.  Maybe because the weather was so pleasant yesterday, we were not overtaken by bugs, flies, or any other insects, which can ruin your fun while playing golf.

As for the staff....TOP NOTCH!!  We're nominating one of the starters (Greg) as the "Starter of the Year" because he was outrageously funny, kind, charming, laid-back, and an all-around great guy TO EVERYONE.  You could tell that Greg really enjoys his job and being around people on the golf course.  He made me feel relaxed by reminding me to "have fun" rather then feel the pressure of making a good shot.  And it was "how he said it" rather then the words that he used.   But all of the staff that we encountered were very professional.

I could go on and on, but...well, I have to get back to my own job.  (smile)  Oh, BTW, we enjoyed our first round of golf so much that we played a second round immediately afterwards.

(Oh, I forgot to also mention another Starter named Jeff, who was also really nice and accommodating when we decided to play an extra round of golf.)

I was in the area so I played after a meeting. Was surprised that it costs $24 to walk 9 holes when you tee off at 6pm. I suggest playing the blue tees to add some length to the front 9, otherwise it is way too short. Like others, I was disappointing in the quality of the fairways and greens. Too many fairway divots were not replaced or sanded and the greens were really banged up. The course should give each player a divot tool and remind them to replace their divots when they pay for their greens fees. I play the muni courses in Baltimore and they are cheaper and in better shape. All in all, not worth $24 to walk 9 at 6pm on Monday.
