Great public course. Upgraded in the last few years. Beautiful Setting. Blue course is along the Great Sound Bay giving you a poor man's Pebble Beach feeling.

Would travel: 10-20 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again

This is a Suffolk County Municipal Golf Course. Non-residents pay more. The location of the course is simply beautiful. There are 3 nine-hole courses (Red, White and Blue) The Blue course hugs the Great South Bay and can be described as a poor man's Pebble Beach. The second par 4 on the Blue is a 165+ yard up-hill shot onto a bluff that juts out into the bay--awesome but tough. The next two holes hug the Great South Bay and are reminiscent of the 18th at Pebble--I know it's a bit of stretch but you have to see it to believe it. I played in March 2008, on a cold blustery day. So, the conditions of the course were not up to peek season form (especially the greens). However, the two guys I played with ensured me that in the spring and summer Timber Point is a gem--I have no reason not to believe them.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level
