The smoke has cleared, and Golf Advisor has revealed the top 10 courses in Tennessee as rated by golfers throughout 2015. While the state isn't as well known nationally for its golf destinations, locally and regionally, golfers are finding strong courses around Nashville, Memphis and the Great Smoky Mountains. Great value can be found too, as each course scored at least a 4.2/5 in the value subcategory. The average staff friendliness rating, meanwhile, was a remarkable 4.62/5. Perhaps Tennessee has some of the friendliest courses in the East.
