Top 10 courses in Tennessee according to Golf Advisor reviews in 2015

The smoke has cleared, and Golf Advisor has revealed the top 10 courses in Tennessee as rated by golfers throughout 2015. While the state isn't as well known nationally for its golf destinations, locally and regionally, golfers are finding strong courses around Nashville, Memphis and the Great Smoky Mountains. Great value can be found too, as each course scored at least a 4.2/5 in the value subcategory. The average staff friendliness rating, meanwhile, was a remarkable 4.62/5. Perhaps Tennessee has some of the friendliest courses in the East.

You can click on each course to view detailed ratings and reviews left by golfers throughout the year.

The people who put this list together sure aren't playing the same courses in Tennessee that I'm playing. The list is a bad joke on anyone who really wants to play the best courses here. No since knocking the courses on this list. Lets just say most of the best courses in Tennessee are not on this list. If you come to Tennessee, ask around, you'll find the best courses
