Why the Frustration!!??

Sometimes technology can screw something up... Like golf! I'm sure I would have had a much better score if I were not preoccupied with the frustration of dealing with these stupid carts that this course had!!! Definitely is a beautiful course though!

Centennial GC Oak Ridge TN

Played course many times. Overall enjoyable. Fairways and greens really in good shape. A few bogus golf holes, particularly 18 which is a shame as it leaves that bad taste. Holes 10-15 are some of the best in the area.

Beautiful Scenery

This course is cut out of the woods and hills near Oak Ridge. As such there are very few level lies. There are several holes that require lay ups off the tee Greens are undulating and can have some very difficult pin placements. The downside affect of the aforementioned issues is slow play. We teed off early and our threesome played in 4 1/2 hours as we waited for the groups ahead to clear a hole. Too slow for my liking.

It was a nice course years ago.

Not all the problems with the course are due to course maintenance. The majority of the greens were peppered with unfixed divots. I counted 15 or more around my ball on most holes. Tee boxes on a lot of the holes had no grass.

Not great, Bob

Staff was indifferent to almost rude. The layout is not great. Course is in mediocre to poor condition.

Was hoping for a better experience. Won’t be playing here again.

Challenging and enjoyable

Centennial is a great course. Not recommended for a walking player. The terrain is a real challenge for the game, but a very enjoyable course to play with a cart.

Very good Municipal Course

Solid municipal course that has turf (greens, tees and fairways) in superb condition. The bunkers (that remain) are also in good condition. Unfortunately if you compare the hole layout on each tee with the bunkers that remain - many have been filled in.

Pace of play was perfect for my afternoon round and the course has the right amount of land movement to create a very interesting course that would make you want to play again and again.
