Slow play ruined it

Only reason I would not recommend is the pace of play. Groups taking forever and it was frustrating. Like the course though. Staff was super friendly and greens and tee boxes are nice

What a course!

Most picturesque course I've ever played! The staff was on top of tee times and extremely personable. The clubhouse has a full bar with an eager staff! The course is well maintained with plenty of challenge. Lots of nicely sloped rises and quick greens. Can't wait to go back!

Impressive

We spent a beautiful day playing a beautiful course.
Intimidating on the first hole-narrow fairway and small green. At the end of the round, I had tied my personal best score

Help needed

Course is not getting the attention it used to. Long fairway grass. Greens are rough. Tees are rough. Golf carts used to be washed after every use, not now. Course just needs some TLC.

Slow pace

There was no management of the pace of play. A number of factors contributed to this. One group ahead of me had 6 people teeing off. There was no starter so the smaller twosome ahead of me was scheduled earlier but were late showing up and the the guys let their girlfriends hit for fun. All that said, I still will return because it is a beautiful setting, the course is in fair shape and the fairways, while tight are mostly flat and easy.

Wild Laurel in the morning.

Had an 8:30 tee time so had a little fog for a couple of holes. Very few players so pace of play as a twosome was great. Fairways were a little shaggy and the greens were painfully slow. Overall the course was ok. The staff was very friendly and the clubhouse was mountain cabin nice with a pool table and well stocked bar. The food was good. The weather was amazing so it was a good relaxing day. I would do it again.

Greens were somewhat rough. There was sand on the greens. Some fairways needed mowing.

Poor conditions

I'm really not sure how this course has so many recent 5 star reviews. It may be that there are not many to choose from in this area but it seems like we played a different course than they did. I'm not sure they even own lawn mowers here. The greens had not been cut in at least several days and were very shaggy. They had been recently punched and sanded and that 's fine but I've never seen a course not cut their greens for days.

There was no difference between the fairways and the rough and they also had not been cut for days. We lost several balls in the middle of the fairway simply because the grass was too long. We teed off around 9 and never saw a mower anywhere on the course once during our round.

The pro shop staff was kind and helpful and they have a beautiful hilltop clubhouse and restaurant and that's obviously where all the money went because they didn't spend it on mowers. It's unfortunate because it is a pretty layout with tremendous potential.

Also, we played Gatlinburg Golf Course two days later and their greens had been punched just days earlier but had been cut and were rolling great despite the holes and the sand. Great fairway conditions too so a much better value over there.
