Timber Trace Golf Club
Great track: Tough but fair!
My first time on this course. Beautiful layout! You will not want to walk as there is a loop on the back 9 that takes you out around a lake - Lake Wallaby. It's 5-6 minutes each way out/in but it's beautiful!
There are many sand trap surrounded greens so you need to hit high shots on - no roll-ups for the most part! Shot an 81 which is just 2 shots above my average as i was able to avoid most bunkers. Staff and food were great!

Enjoyed the round despite playing behind a couple of slow foursomes. The course layout and condition were very nice and most importantly had no hidden hazards or forced carries. I will surely go back and hopefully the players ahead aren't deliberate in their pace!

This is a very player friendly course. The fairways are wide and forgiving. It is hard to judge the greens, as it was pouring at times. They did drain quickly though.
The course is surrounded by neighborhoods and snakes you in and out of the different sections, so hole to hole travel can seem long. Being out in the country a bit, there is not a tone of traffic.

Worth the drive
As a relative newcomer to the area, I gave this course a shot based on some reviews of a few local players on an online golf forum (golfwrx). Timber Trace was a fun, interesting, and challenging course. I don't know that i'll make the one hour drive on a regular basis, but it will definitely be a course I consider when I have friends and relatives in town and I want to show them a good course at a reasonable price.
The course and surrounding area are beautiful, the course was in pretty good shape (greens were a little chewed up but still rolled nice), and it presented a good challenge without being too brutal on a player like me that typically shoots in the 85-95 range depending on the course.
Everyone in the metro-Detroit area should make a point to play here at least once.

Mid week golf
I've played here several times before. It's my favorite course in the area. There are a couple challenging holes that get me every time. Overall a great course and will continue to play here.

Played course on a hot deal and certainly couldn't beat this value! Course was in great shape. Only downside is the 10 min round trip on the back nine.

Bring LOTS of Balls!
Great course. Always in great condition and always seems to have very good pace of play.
Greens are spectacular. Very challenging but great layout.
