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 .
