Length of Course - Not too Long not too short
Hole Difficulty - Holes aren't too long so you don't have to have a ton of distance to be competitive.
Poorly Marked - Not every hole is marked on the tee box. If you don't know the course you will NEVER find the 12th tee box!
Water - Be prepared to get wet. Around half of the holes are right next to a creek. Some of the basket placements are very unforgiving.
Other Thoughts: Overall I wasn't impressed with the course. It felt as though the course had began to deteriorate. There are several holes that are blind from the tee box and yet there are no signs at most of the tee boxes indicating the hole layout. There also isn't an overview map available to help with locating the next tee box. Had I not watched this course being played on YouTube I never would have found the tee box for #12. I like the terrain but I'm not crazy about the basket placement. Some baskets are on a steep hill and some are a mere few feet from the creek. This makes for some very unforgiving putts.

Nice city course
Pros: -Course is in good condition (e.g. baskets, paths, growth, cement tees, etc)
-Fun course that is accessible for beginners and intermediate players looking for a nice under par round
-Good amount of scenery for a "city" course, some holes feel fairly secluded
Cons: -Feels a bit too easy for the intermediate/advanced player, one tee one pin makes for a simple round across the board
-"Filler" holes, or holes that just make up the numbers is far too common here
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a solid course, and rated objectively earns a 2.5 from me. I don't consider 2.5 to be bad, Timmons is far from a poor course, however, it is a decent/typical course. That being said, it was highly enjoyable and a morale booster (birdies galore).
#5: Sweeping right hand hole with a sizable fairway and a creek hugging on the right. Decent length lets you put plenty of power to get to the pin. My favorite here at Timmons.
#10: Another longer hole with plenty of room for arm, but the pin lies on a hillside with the creek on the right hand side of fairway that will catch errant throws and rolls.
#17: I enjoy throwing downhill so this hole fits the bill perfectly. Don't throw too hard though, its short and the elevation will carry your disc.
#18: Long'ish' hole, straight forward. Enjoyable finishing hole.
Three Poorest Holes:
#9: Luck shot, feels forced with no fairway.
New#12: again, feels forced and since its new I'll give it the benefit of the doubt because it needs some breaking in. Birdie here (what I got) was pure luck.
#16: Nothing terribly wrong with the hole, but I didn't like it because it was unimaginative. The elevation by the pin is the only thing keeping this playable.
Timmons is well worth a stop off of I-85. It won't tire you completely and is enjoyable. Overall, expect to find a well thought out course on a nice piece of land that will serve up the birdies to the willing and you'll be just fine.
