Good Value

This course offers a great value for the price to play, and is in fair condition as of right now. I have played this course numerous times and it has helped me improve my golf game, being as I just started playing this past summer. My only complaint for this course is that the woman who works the front desk from time to time is the rudest and most stuck up woman I have ever encountered. She doesn't seem to care what the customer thinks, she just wants your money. I will most likely play here again, but I will be spending a lot more money at other courses in the area from here on out.

Fun course but...

I have played golf at Lake Junaluska numerous times and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I just took up golfing a few months ago and it's nice to have a cheaper course to play at to begin to improve my golf game. My only complaint is that the lady at the front desk who is there from time to time, is a massive jerk. You would think that being a christian group owned course they would think to hire someone that wasn't so stuck up and rude. Other than that, the course is great for the price.

Great Mountain Course

We This is a fun course for bogey shooter like me. Just challenging enough, but scoreable. I shot 78, 85, 79 for my three rounds. Great rounds for me. Beautiful scenery everywhere you look with lake and mountains. This time of year watch for the “leaf traps” in the fairway.

Gem in the Smokies

Great little course for a bogey golfer like me. You can score on this course, but it has challenging holes to keep you interested. A beautiful setting in a mountain valley by a lake.

Beautiful Mountain Course

This course is in a mountain valley in the Smokies in North Carolina. It borders a lake. It is a beautiful setting. The course was in good condition and was fun to play. I am an 18 handicap and shot a 78 that day. Best front nine of my life at 2 over par. Had a first time experience of leaf traps, so many leaves on the fairway, I lost my ball after a great drive in the middle of the fairway.

Nice, inexpensive course

This is a overall great course. The layout is one of the best I have played, and incorporates many moderately difficult, fun to play holes. There is no food or bar on site, however this is made up for by the great price. As I am under 16 I can play a 9-hole round for 5$. The greens are great and the fairway is a bit long but gives beggenirs something to hit off of.

Great course for amateur golfers

I really enjoyed the course. I doesn't have a lot of water, and it's wide open on several holes. Definitely recommend for amateur golfers, because there is room for error. Always enjoy playing on this course.

9 hole course.

The front 9 was well put together, and pretty nice. however, the back 9 seems to have been squeezed in. It doesnt fit with the landscape and seems very forced. Nice course otherwise and will definitely play again, however I will not be spending the extra money to play the back 9.

Some tricky holes but interesting

5200 yards from blue tees are far enough in some holes. It is a par 68 because there are 3 par 5s and 7 par 3s. Some tricky holes (example 8, 14 and 16) where you need to know where to hit and how to play the hole. Weather was hot but cloudy and the company was great so it was enjoyable.

Good Value for the money

Good course, but holes are close together. GPS units were confused and had to reset all the time. Fairly easy, but some holes were confusing. Was fun to play.

Great little course

Love this place.. couple of odd holes crossed by major overhead power lines, but straight forward otherwise.
A wet warm winter has really greened the course up!

Great "practice " course

I have been playing this golf course for many years. Relaxed atmosphere. Easy to get a tee time. Fees are reasonable for afternoons or if walking. When not busy, I play two balls for extra practice. Rangers are friendly and often stop to chat or just say hello.
