The smoke has cleared: Golf Advisor's Top 10 courses in Tennessee in 2014

Tennessee has a golf scene that doesn't make it onto the national scene very often.

The FedEx St. Jude's Classic takes place at TPC Southwind in Memphis, which is private. Other than that, the golf courses in Tennessee cater to a more local and regional clientele.

Not that they are complaining. The best courses in the Volunteer State, from Nashville to Memphis and deep into the Smoky Mountains, are often a great value and come with some great mountain scenery.

In 2014, the state's top-rated course was in Dickson, located west of Nashville. This semi-private course, designed by Hale Irwin, can usually be played for less than $50, but still leaves a lot of golfers happy enough to leave strong ratings on Golf Advisor.

"This is a fantastic golf course in the Tennessee hills," wrote Ross3102118 after his August round. "Get ready for a lot of elevation change. The course conditions were great, bent greens are awesome."

Here's the rest of the top 10 in Tennessee as rated by Golf Advisor golfers in 2014.
