    Since Timber Banks opened four years ago I've been wanting to play this Jack Nicklaus design course. Earlier this year I had met some of the Timber Banks staff at the Syracuse Golf Show. They informed me that last year (2012) a PGA qualifying event was held at the course and still the course record remains at 72. Not that I was going to break this record but I sure do like a good challenge.
    The greens were amazing, not for speed but in design. Lots of sucker pin positions can be created on every green. Some contours are very significant and knowing the greens is certainly an asset. You can easily see how this course can be made very difficult simply by cutting the greens.
    The fairways swirl around outstanding bunkering. From every tee it seemed some sort of angled ball grabbing obstacle looked you in the eye. Varying bunker sizes make it very difficult to judge distances.
    I loved hole #14; a par 5 that feels like it takes a couple of turns on the path to the hole. Protecting the green is a large pond and even closer is more well-placed bunkering. The green is no party either.
    The scorecard is large. Hole layouts are on the card but some of the greens are at the top while others are at the bottom of the overview. I think all holes should be drawn bottom (tee) to top (green). This could easily have been done.
    A large clubhouse is being worked on for parties and banquets. I didn't get to look inside but I'm told even in its present state it's quite nice.
