no complaints here other than pricing seems to be a little high compared to other courses in the area, but other than that, very nice place, greens were in great shape, fairways were very good.

Not a very long course especially with all the elevation changes. I played the back tees and found it to be pretty short I hit my driver 280-300 and my 7 iron 175-185 so this was too short for me but I still enjoyed hitting different shots off the tee. The course conditions were very nice and the greens rolled true. If you get the itch to play this is a good choice for the area and really fun to play in the hills.

Great mountain views. Golfer friendly course hit the ball fairly straight and you will score well. Hole number 12 is one of the most memorable holes you will ever play.

I'm just a golfnow.com user and often go to reviews to help select courses. I understand the course was wet and cart paths only, however you rated everything about the course as poor, how can you make that judgement when you didn't even play. I would hope that other users post fair and correct reviews so that I can use them to determine whether to book or not.

A great East TN golf course, layout is challenging. I play here about 6 times a year.Today it was cart path only, and that does slow down pace of play, but we were worn out after about 15 holes.

Play was a little slow, but expected it as it was a weekend. played earlier in week as pace was under 4 hours. Found the course to be challenging with the hilly terrain. Enjoyed playing the course and the great views.

Being set in the mountains, many of the holes are sloped side to side and some second shots are blind. Fun Course. The area had suffered some heavy rains recently as evidenced by some dead fairways and still soggy ones, but the greens were impeccable and putts rolled well. Given the opportunity, this course is well worth it.

The course was in fantastic condition for very early in the golf season. The fairways were brown but the greens were really green. Great layout and a wonderful alternative to Dollyworld. The only thing I did not like was that the tees were covered, something I could live with. I will play this course when spring has sprung.
