Course Overview

The Timbers at Troy Golf Course offers the best of the Maryland countryside.

Rolling hills, mature trees, and meandering streams provide the backdrop to a truly enjoyable and challenging golf course, highlighted by spectacular bunkering and bentgrass from tee to green. The layout is a reminder of the beauty of the Greater Baltimore region’s majestic setting. During the winter of 2016-2017, the Timbers underwent a historic renovation that included new, state-of-the-art Billy Bunker sand traps, new irrigation, new cart paths, and clubhouse improvements. The Timbers at Troy is truly Howard County’s premiere public golf experience.

The Timbers’ 206 acres are rich in history. Originally granted to the Dorsey family by Lord Baltimore in 1664, the property later became known as Troy Hill. Members of this prominent family held various official posts in 17th century America and led the Elkridge Militia during the Revolutionary War.

Hole # 1

The first hole is a challenging par 4 ranking second hardest on the front nine. The tee shot requires accuracy as there are bunkers right of the fairway that should be avoided at all costs. However, the woods bordering the left side of the fairway is even more penalizing. A good tee shot will leave the average player between 150 and 200 yards to the well-bunkered, deep green. Longer hitters will have a tricky down-hill wedge into this undulating green with multiple plateaus.
