Golf Advisor: Top 25 Most Improved U.S. Golf Courses
Could be a decent muni course
Pretty poorly run course - even for a muni track. Tee times don’t really matter as they tend to squeeze players who walk up to play in between schedules tee times so the pace of play can be slower than the average public course. It’s the closest public course to most people in downtown and the suburbs west of downtown. Because of this, the skill level of golfers who play here is all over the place. So the pace of play generally reflects that too. Most recently played here a few days ago and the fairways were in solid condition and the greens were slow but rolled true. Rough is almost entirely made up of weeds. Muni course so the fairways are huge and missing the fairway isn’t a big deal because you’ll almost always have an angle into the green. Sits on the edge of the river but they don’t take advantage of potential views and fun holes with the water. Don’t think this course is worth the cost. It’s a $20 course that could easily be a $30 course if they added trees or more fairways bunkers and had a starter and ranger on the course.
This course is in great shape. The greens are immaculate condition along with the fairways. The sand traps need improvement but overall a great open course.
Live & work 5 miles away, have always enjoyed this public track. Teed off mid-day on a Saturday and saw a lot of golfers but pace of play was nice. Fairways are in tremendous shape and the greens are in better shape than I have ever seen them. Staff are always friendly and professional. I'll be back, and often!
Fun round, great value!
Fun, wide open layout. Played with son and son-in-law on a morning following an all day rain, so the course was soaked. Had a blast, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Will play again if I am back in Chattanooga.
Great Course for the money. Course does not drain well extremely wet throughout. Enjoyed the round just too wet.
Great day on the course!
First time playing Moccasin Bend. I loved the open layout and found it to make for a most enjoyable round. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Other than the extreme wet conditions (heavy rains the day and night prior to our round) nothing could have been better.
I have played this course several times on previous trips to Chattanooga, and I used to play it frequently when I lived in Chattanooga. Every time I play here it gets worse. The greens were absolutely embarrassing. They had a mix of 2 or 3 different types of grass on some of the greens, they were littered with crab grass and several non-repaired ball marks were commonly seen. The poor conditions of the greens cost me probably 5 strokes on my round.
Most of the tee boxes needed a sledge hammer to get the tee into the ground. The teeing ground was generally beat up and had bare spots or uneven footing.
The fairways were in good shape for the most part. The rough was nothing remarkable good or bad.
Overall, very disappointed in Moccasin Bend. It may be a while before I return to play this course.
Pretty straight forward golf. Wide open and not much trouble to find. Not well trapped, but many greens on the smaller side. Green were hard and some were fairly
fast. Not a very memorable layout.
Solid course and great staff
Great course to play. Well kept and clean. The staff is absolutely amazing, and extremely friendly.
This course has beautiful views of Lookout Mountain & borders the TN River. Morning & evening you can see deer, turkeys, osprey & bald eagles on the course. Bent grass greens suffer a little in summer with the heat & humidity in Chattanooga but they still keep them in fairly good shape.
