Poorly managed and terribly slow

We have played this course on multiple occasions, and we are always behind slow groups. They never have rangers to push and you can easily play a 5-6 hour round behind non-golfers.

Good golf course.
There are no bunkers on this course. However, there are some really thick ruffs and the course has some slopes. The greens look flat, but many are sloped ever so slightly. Overall good fun.

Fair price / Fair Conditions

Always enjoy supporting golf in Knoxville. It's been a hot Summer, and I am anxious for the Fall, especially to see course conditions turn around.

We are blessed with inexpensive golf and a variety of courses in the Knoxville Area. This course needs some turf improvements, but I enjoy the layout. Candidly, while this is a municipal course and our tax money helps support it, I would like to see it improved. It's a lot to expect all courses to be "perfect" when we aren't paying a lot at the counter. Always enjoy coming out, staff is nice - and its golf! Not sure how many non-municipal courses are surviving when the prices are low to play. Maybe if we pay a little more we can expect a little more....

This course and staff are great ! I am teaching my wife to play and she loves this particular course due to the fact there are no sand bunkers. The staff is always friendly and personal .

Different Course

I was really concerned about playing this course due to past experiences. A friend and I found a good deal on Golfnow. We were both pleased with the condition of the entire course. The staff was really friendly! We will start playing this course more often!

Enjoyable

Good course overall! I’m not the biggest fan of the back nine, but I really like the front so, sometimes it is what it is.

Green’s seems to be in good shape.

Fairways were extremely hard and dry. Good for roll. Not good for a “pick it clean” player like me...when I found the fairway that is.

I shot a “94” to give you my skill level.

I enjoyed it. Will probably stick to only 9 here though.

Greens need some work, Great staff and layout

I enjoyed my Memorial Day round. Staff is awesome. The greens had been recently punched and sanded...that was a mild disappointment. Keep working hard on making the course great.

Terrible Workers!

Long story short, I called the day before to make sure 5 could play. They said it was okay, drove 1.5 hours to play and once we arrived, their extremely rude pro shop guy refused to let us play. Would not go if my round was free!

Not bad

This was the first time playing here. The course was in pretty good shape. Clubhouse was nice and grabbed a quick bite at the turn. This is a good course for a high handicapper. I played the white but should have played the blues. Its relatively short. The greens rolled true. This is a great scoring course. There arent many challenging shots. The 18th is a par 5 that plays as a par 4. I would say that all the par 5's are short. I would play again for sure.its a good course for the money.
