Beautiful Day

Course is in good shape for the most part. The course is quirkier than I remember. There are several holes with trees blocking sight lines to the fairway. A few of the holes are unfair. Also, the green fees are way too much. They need to be lowered 20 percent. State Park golf courses should be more affordable.

If you're going to put multiple greenside bunkers on every hole...

...at least take the time to maintain them. It was like hitting out of clay.

That combined with the >5 hour round did not make our experience particularly enjoyable.

Fun Course-Hidden Jewel

Played this course 2 days on a row. Fun course to play with many holes having strategic shots to have a good approach to the green. Pace of play was fantastic. Greens in very good shape, bunkers overall in hood shape but course needs more rakes, most bunkers only had 1 rake! Electric carts well maintained.

Underrated

This course is outstanding. Good fairway to green transitions. Lots of sand in traps. Pace of play fantastic. Wide enough fairways. Much better than many other courses to choose from that are relatively nearby.

Traps

Course is in good shape with the exception of the traps. I think they are reworking them. They were like concrete.

Great golf

I've been playing this course for 49 years and always enjoyed it. The superintendent always wants to improve the conditions but is hamstrung by the state expendures. The greens are great and true and could be a little faster. The fairways need to be rid of secondary grasses but it still plays well. The bunkers need to be rebuilt are really not playable. Holes 5, 9, and 15 have trees that gave overgrown into the fairways limiting the shot off the tee. The layout is always fun with several tee locations. I love this course but like a lot of them it's as only good as the states willing to spend. Worth the time and effort to play, see wildlife, and have a great time.

Hidden gem

Challenging but fair layout, the only thing is too many bunkers.

Bad shape, but working to improve

The course was in bad shape. The greens were under repair with some kind of blue liquid painted on them (fertilizer?). They do have lower fees. We've played here previously with excellent conditions. We'll try again but this trip was disappointing.

Fantastic course, too bad about greens

Played the famous Fall Creek Falls state park and loved it. Will be back to its old self in the late fall or spring. Lost greens due to what appeared to be a fungus. Everything thing else is just in perfect shape.

Disappointed

Unfortunately, I have to give very poor review for FCF. I have played this course well over 100 times in my 25+ years of playing golf. I have never seen the greens in this bad of shape at FCF. Number 10 green is totally gone and they are quickly losing the rest. I dont know if the State of TN has cut funding or the greens have a biotic or abiotic issue but its terrible to see as this course can be one of the best in Tennessee. In addition, anyone playing this course in this condition should receive a discount and in this case, they charged us full price. On a good note, the fairways are in excellent condition. Hopefully, they will get some resolution or nobody will be playing this course in the future. I have to mark no in recommend a friend comment area and hate to do so.

Another Good Day at FCF

Some greens are starting to show just a little damage around the edges. However and overall, the course is in really good shape.
