Beautiful winter day in the Mountains. Wet but playable. Greens were fast but rolling true. A must play for tourists and local players. Good for the soul.

Serenity abounds!

I have always liked the settings in the valley of this course. Today it was crowded and play was slow but it was a Holiday Week!! The greens were the best feature. They were in great shape! Of course who expects to play golf in December! I could overlook all other conditions. I will always come back just for the ambience of the natural settings in the valley!

Beautiful Fall day for golf. Greens were slow but rolled well. A great day for golf in the beauty of the mountains. A must play if you play golf or just ride along and experience the vistas!

Best Golf Course in East Tennessee

Played 18 holes on Sunday morning and had a great time. The course was in excellent condition. The fairways were recently mowed, the greens were fast and true, and the pace of play was great for a weekend morning round.

I have played this course consistently over the last couple of years and it is evident that the management is making significant improvements to the course every day. And, its especially pretty this time of year with the leaves changing colors.

Great Course with a beautiful backdrop

Played the course on 10/31/20 with my nephew. Definitely some challenging holes but not too overwhelming. Well kept and pleasant to play. Would definitively return.

Gorgeous

The views and feeling of playing tucked up in the Smoky Mountains was amazing. Course was in great shape. Greens felt soft but played much quicker than expected. Staff and fellow golfers were very polite and friendly. Perhaps not the best course for beginners as it was pretty easy to lose balls and there’s only a few flat’ish holes with lots of slope everywhere else. Overall great experience. Will definitely be going back.

Better than I expected!

This picture is from the Club House looking back at the 18th green. An absolutely beautiful golf course. You may want to take bug spray with you because of the small gnats in the area.

Top Tier Golf Course

Nestled near the Great Smokies in Townsend TN, any one (local or tourist) with clubs should check it out. It features a full bar, friendly staff, and some of the prettiest views playing golf. We ran into several turkey and a buck while playing this challenging, yet rewarding course. Well worth the hour and a half drive for me, can't wait to do it again.
