Okay for out-of-towner round.

Tee boxes were awful. Greens were cratered like you would expect from a muni. Other than that not bad. Carts were nice with GPS and Bluetooth. Pro shop staff was made of college kids who where unfriendly and provided the least amount of customer service as a living person could. Only saw the bev cart once on the 2nd hole (@2:15 on a Saturday) and never again. All that being said the green fee was $40. It was a $40 track….

Beautiful layout & Conditions

The course was in immaculate shape. The scenery is incredible, the greens are tough but roll incredible. Ball sits up nice on fairways. Great course in the heart of Oak Ridge.

Always A Challenging Round

I have played here before, and always like it. The course seems to hold water much more that others. And like most East Tennessee courses they also make the mistake of using Bermuda grass which is completely wrong for the climate. This time around the staff was super unfriendly for some reason.

Love playing here

Course stays in great shape, greens are good. Some were a little beat up from other players not taking care of pitch marks but not the courses fault. Relatively crowded but okay moved along well. Driving range isn’t the best, grass isn’t grown in and they apparently don’t move teeing area even though they close the range on Mondays. Practice green and chipping area were nice though.

Greenskeeper

Fairways and tees cut way to low in October so we are playing off dirt. Most cup locations were on a slant and some holes you have your back to the hole.

Okay for the time of year.

Layout was good, with risk reward holes. The only bad thing were the Greens were chewed up. My pet peeve is people not fixing ball marks on the green. The other two courses I’ve played, had tarps to cover the green to protect them. This course didn’t.

Great Challenging Layout

Very nice place. Course is challenging and in great shape. The greens rolled smooth. The rate is fantastic. They do have member that think 6 hour rounds are fine. I was hoping for a better pace of play.

Good course, but greens have lots of ball marks

Not the first time playing this course. I generally like this course, but would be so much better if people would fix their ball marks. One of the worst courses I play with this problem. Also played behind someone who didn't (or couldn't) pick up their feet when walking on greens. Left marks on most every green. There are numerous course that I play in Knoxvillle where you do not have this problem to deal with.
