Timber Ridge Golf Course was carefully carved from a mature tree nursery that was planted in the 1940s. As a result, the course enjoys more than 60 varieties of trees throughout. The designer, Jerry Matthews, wanted to not only preserve the trees but also work with the existing hills and wetlands so that the course blended seamlessly into the natural environment. The golf course sits atop one of Clinton County's highest elevations, providing a variety of undulations that range from subtle to dramatic. The contours of the landscape determined the placement of the holes and routing of the course. Towering pines and hardwoods frame the holes, giving each one a secluded feel without feeling tight. Timber Ridge Golf Course finishes with a classic and challenging hole that features an undulating, two-tiered green that is fronted by a daunting water hazard.

    Loved the course, very nice layout. Could use a facelift. But a lot of potential.

    Don't believe the hype. This is one of the worst conditioned courses in this price range I have ever seen. You can do a lot better. The greens are horrible. The rough is spotty and half dead. They arent spending any money keeping this place up. Ant there is this god awful GPS screen right in your field of vision in the middle of the cart.

    I'm from n.w. Ohio & this course had the look & feel of northern Michigan golf! Great layout, well kept greens. Would definitely recommend.
