Not bad for the price

Waited too long to get a tee. Time where we typically play, gave this course a try since we could get an early morning t ltime. Staff were very friendly, great pace of play. Not a lot of grass in the fairways yet, greens were in decent condition.Excellent deal for the price.

If you call yourself a golfer of any kind. Avoid this place. Wow it’s packed but don’t know why. Tees and greens literally side by side. Awful fairways. Greens ok. I wouldn’t play there again if you paid me.

Charged twice

Decent course, but don’t like being charged twice for anything. Since when does a round cost $96? Should have been $48 ($24 each). Instead I have two transactions for $48. Guy at the counter wasn’t too friendly either. Just saying...

Solid Course

Overall, very solid course! A little tight, so you can hit into others if not careful. But, I enjoy this course a lot!

Fun Track! Not a long course but the greens are her defense! My buddies and I get out early and zip around. Greens have been healthy every time we have been out.

There were many players who did not think about the pace of play, and the waiting time was long. I want everyone to improve.

The staff

The staff at this course was awesome. Made to feel so welcome. And the guys in the proshop hanging before their tee time were so friendly. One even gave me a bag full of balls. :))

Greens Are Great, Teeboxes and Fairways Are Average

The greens are close to the best that Knoxville has to offer. Fast, true and just soft enough to stop an iron shot. The layout is funky, but is understandable since the course was built in the mid 1930's. Best value around town for sure.
