Finally back.

It had been a long time since I had last played this course and I would say I was extremely impressed by the improvements this course has made with its' greens, general course upkeep, and golf carts with GPS and bluetooth speakers. After the winter and once this course really has a chance to properly grow in it will be beautiful. A must play with surprisingly picturesque landscapes.

Amazing Greens

The greens have continued to improve! Super fast and rolling true. Pace of play was a little slow, but I think the rain had something to do with that. I will be playing here again soon!

Beautiful golf course contoured fairways.

Great golf course fairways and green in outstanding shape. Greens hold proper shots, they also roll true and plenty of undulations. Will definitely return again this year.

Great course

Every hole had elevated tees, greens were good size and in good shape, and each hole was a unique challenge. Great course for the average golfer, not too challenging but definitely not easy!

Call Ming along nicely

Nice course but still have some “growing” to do. New greens are coming in nice for only being installed in May. Regular price of $58 is WAY TOO MUCH. Good thing I had some rewards to us and got me down to $46. Several greens are struggling with spots. Give it another year and stay on the maintenance and they will be nice. If you are looking for a “Premier/Pristine” course this isn’t it yet. Catch a Hot Deal or use rewards.

Great course!
Greens were a little slow because they were just installed in May. The potential for them to be great is there.
Nice clubhouse!

The greens were very soft and difficult to putt as they were extremely slow. Many green s were damaged, as well. Also, tee boxes were often gave an unaven stance. Sand traps were very well kept and consistent.

Too Expensive

The greens were completely redone this year, so it is understandable that they aren’t the best right now. But the price is not. $65 for 18 with greens under repair is a little much. Next year it will be worth it, but not now.

New greens.

This course has always been my favorite around the Knoxville area. The greens are brand new so they are a bit sponge feeling and slow rite now but all have been replaced and are absolutely great. If you have not played this course you should definitely go.
