The land where TimberStone Golf Course resides is steeped In Idaho farming history. Former owner Bruce Barlett made a living growing beats, beans, and wheat on the land. After giving up farming, he ordered golf course architect John Stiedel to design the course. Eventually, Bruce sold the land, and through several changes of ownership, the course was deserted and overtaken by weeds at only 70% completion.
In 2010, ownership changed again, and the new owners pooled their time and resources, working tirelessly to complete the project. In just a little over a year, irrigation and planting of grass on the last 8 holes was completed and more than 1,300 trees were planted.
On July 6th, 2011, TimberStone Golf Course opened to the public. Six weeks after the Grand opening, the clubhouse was finished. Read the Grand Opening Articles in the Idaho Press-Tribune
