What makes a golf course enjoyable to you? The answer to that question might be as varied as the swings you saw on your last visit to the driving range. For most golfers, though, the adjectives “challenging”, “fair”, “fun”, “scenic”, and “well-conditioned” are likely to be near the top of the list.
TimberCreek Golf Course, located in Daphne, AL, is all of the above – and much more!
TimberCreek has been one of the most popular golf facilities on the Gulf Coast since opening in 1993. The 27-hole facility has played host to numerous prestigious events including four Alabama Opens and two NGA Tour events.
Conveniently located just minutes from Interstate 10 in Daphne, AL, TimberCreek is an easily reachable destination for golfers all along the Gulf Coast. The true reward, however, is in the spectacular golf that awaits.
Because of the unique 27-hole format, three different course rotations are available. Generous, rolling fairways carved from a forest of Dogwoods, Magnolias, and Pines – the names of the three nine hole layouts – and immaculate putting surfaces are sure to please! Significant elevation changes, especially on the Magnolia and Dogwood nines, are a unique aspect for a course just minutes from the Gulf of Mexico.
Course designer Earl Stone was given a great piece of property to work with, and he did not disappoint.TimberCreek offers golfers of every skill level an excellent mix of challenge, playability, and scenic beauty. Five tee box options are available, so make sure to pick the right one and you’ll be sure to enjoy a fun and challenging round!

The clubhouse features a full-service restaurant and pro shop stocked with all the best from the major manufacturers. TimberCreek is a residential golf community with over 675 home sites and growing.
