Fun golf course. Front nine is pretty traditional while the back nine is definitely a mountain course. Greens putt like bent grass. You have to play the grain and growth of the grass, Very nice staff.

The grounds are in need of management. The greens and fare ways need attention. The gnats made it difficult to stay in one place to hit the ball. My biggest concern is that my friend was charged for services not rendered and the staff said that they were not authorized to give her money back. The manager is not available... More

OK I am an 11 handicap and play over 200 times a year all over the country. On a scale of 1-10 this course is a 1. First of all $49 to play and there are horrible tee boxes, fairways, greens, bunkers and no restaurant. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. When we arrived for our 8:30 Tee time... More

We booked a foursome here. The staff we met was friendly and helpful. The front nine wasn't special, but the back has a few holes that are a lot of fun. A few of the greens and fairways had large puddles the appeared to have been there awhile. Overall we had a good time.

The mountainous environment with the creek winding through the course is impossible not to appreciate, so drink in the picturesque scenery. However, the greens were in awful shape, the grounds crew was mowing throughout the entire 18 holes, and the pace was super slow (nobody was regulating that either). There was only one ball washer, and no drink cart coming... More

My son and I played this course on July 17, 2016. We used a groupon that cost 44.00 for two to play after 11:00 am. This included the cart. The saying that you get what you pay for is correct. The course is in desperate need of a major over-haul. If something doesn't change, this course won't even be worth... More

This course is a disaster. From the time we started till finished we kept asking why we chose this course, the front nine was pretty open but like playing on a parking lot, then the back nine, whoever designed some of those holes should never be able to design another course. Most holes had blind shots where you had no... More

Had high hopes before playing this course, but it turned out to be pretty much a cow pasture type course. Some really strange holes on the back nine. There are more weeds and huge patches of clover than grass in many sections of the course. No on-course refreshments. Little in the clubhouse at the turn other than water, pop, chips.... More

We were looking to get a round of golf in while on vacation in Gatlinburg, this course's website looked nice, and touted the course as a "Gary Player" design and made the course look great.. The course is in TERRIBLE condition. Weeds, dead grass, weeds, poor greens, weeds.. Hope you don't get thirsty on the golf course, because there are... More
