The course is in excellent shape. As a twosome, on the first hole, a foursome let us start first (as they should but the day before on another course, they refused to) .

My group travels to TN annually and usually visits Patriot Hills on one day. We love the course, and staff is friendly. Usually busy, though, and regulars can push you because they are so familiar with the course. This year, there were a lot of bees on tee boxes and greens, even some in the fairways. Had to tee-off on #3 away from the tee blocks because of so much bee activity. Never noticed this in previous years, and we always play the same time of year (1st week of Oct.) Still a great course, but hopefully the bee situation will be better next year.

This is a beautiful course at a great rate, but they let five golfers play together. We played behind two five-somes and a four-some. At some holes three groups were piled up waiting to play. The pace was really bad, and no rhythm could be established. Really ruined a beautiful day.

And the grill closes at about 2:00p, so do not expect to get anything to eat after that.

PH starts with excellent interaction with pro shop staff. Very good rates to play. The course is a good layout with a mix of holes to challenge your ball striking. Greens were rolling very quick, it was easy to knock 20 footers 5-6 feet by without trying. Would definitely play again.

This course is well designed to accommodate both ends of the spectrum for all player abilities. Challenging for your better golfers, yet open enough for the common duffer to have fun and not get into trouble constantly.

very friendly staff and the course was in great shape. Slowed to a crawl on #15 due to slow players backing everything up with 2-3 groups waiting on tee box. NO water available anywhere on course to drink.

I like to visit this course a few times a year. I like that fact that it is 6- par 3's, 6-par 4's and 6-par 5's. I gives methe opportunity to work on every part of my game. The course is not overly hard, but you can make it so if you get on the wrong side of the fairways on many of the holes. It's usually in good condition, especially considering the amount of play it gets.

We played this course on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. The course layout was nicely tucked in the hills and was in very nice conditions. We were behind 2 fives somes which effected the pace of play on back 9. The course was picturesque and deceiving on distances. I had a great time and will return when I am back in town.
