You can know what to expect

Unless it's airification time, you can pretty well get in Tansi being consistently predictable. Always I. Good shape, whether middle of summer or middle of winter.

Outstanding Course

Lake Tansi was in great shape..The fairways were well maintained, the greens were smooth and fairly quick. Overall I was very impressed with the overall condition of this course, I honestly did not expect it to be this nice. I highly recommend anyone desiring to play golf in this area to consider Lake Tansi.

Great Course For The Money

Being winter golf, you have to curb your expectations a tad bit. However, Tansi never lets you down. The pace of play is always a tad slow due to the demographic of the golfers who go here, but the course is in FANTASTIC shape. I was very impressed at how well maintained the tee boxes and greens were for mid November in Tennessee. Even the fairways were still a bit firm and receptive. I have played this course numerous times and I can say if this course is in this condition right now, I CANNOT wait to come back and play in the spring. Staff is always a bit hasty at Tansi so i've come to expect that, but the starter was friendly and made sure to pair me and my partner up with people he felt would be similar in skill level and keep pace of play in check. Clubhouse is always clean and the carts are up to par. Hopefully they will invest in some GPS carts at some point because if you haven't ever played there before course management can become an issue, especially on some of the shorter par 4's like number 4 and number 7 and even some par 5's with water in landing zones. Overall, a great experience that i have actually come to expect when playing Tansi.

We enjoyed this little Tennessee gem!

We both really enjoyed this course. It was fast & easy to check in and get your cart. Signs were everywhere so you knew exactly where to go. There was a practice area at the start and we started on time. It wasn't overly crowded at all. Their friendly staff were available to answer questions. A staffer on the course even directed us to exactly where a ball landed so we didn't have to spend time searching for it. Being a female, I was especially happy that there were bathrooms available every 4-5 holes. Unfortunately, that is not the case for many golf courses.

Well maintained

I have played this course many times and it is always in great shape. They take much pride in maintaining the course. If you have time the 19th hole has excellent food.

Nice Course

We enjoyed this pleasant course. It was a bit slow because we followed the last group of a senior league tournament - but we knew this before we started. Thought the layout was good. Quickly learned we needed to keep it below the hole especially with tournament flag placements.

Tee times

Been taking a group of 12-16 to tansi twice a year for over 25 yrs. I am a property owner. Have never had a problem with getting tee times until this year. Now you can’t get tee time until 30 days before your trip. So I called sept 6 to make tee times for Oct 6 which was 30 days before. I called 30 mins after they open and was told that the earlies time I could get for that Friday was 2:54 and they had no tee times for sat. Morning. I just need to know is if you can’t make tee times before 30 days how can they all be gone 30 mins after you open. This is the only time I’ve ever had this problem in 25 years. But that’s ok we will be back in the spring again.
