Great fairways and greens

Great fairways, tee boxes, and greens rolled true even if they were a little slow. Unfortunately this Course's biggest problem is keeping up fairway bunkers. I am afraid like many courses in the area, the underestimated what it took to properly keep up so many bunkers especially on a course with this much elevation change from tee to green. Staff was great and other than being behind a slow twosome who obviously didn’t know the concept of letting faster players go through, it was a great day on a good course.

Great Course

Once again, Dale Hollow Golf Course did not disappoint. Even with a 15 minute downpour at the beginning of round, still enjoyed this course. Greens were in great shape (a little slow after the rain) fairways were great. Only negative are the bunkers, but a lot of courses have bunkers that need work after going through pandemic. This course is a little over 2 hours from my home, but well worth the drive. I will always keep going back.

BEAUTIFUL COURSE!

Dale Hollow is one of the prettiest courses I've played. It's a great layout with some fairly easy holes to some very difficult holes. The tees, fairways, and greens are in perfect shape. Unfortunately, many of the bunkers are washed out and takes away from the rest of the course. Because of the hilly terrain, I know it is difficult to keep sand in the bunkers and I know it takes time and money. I always recommend Dale Hollow to my friends.

Great Value

Awesome rate for this course. Winter conditions still around, but far better than most public courses. Pace of play was great due to being a weekday. Staff was friendly. Worth the drive for sure.
