Good value if you just want to play

Paid $20 for 18 holes and a cart so that is tough to beat. Don’t come to this course expecting holes secluded in picturesque pockets of nature with perfectly tended grass and you will have a great time. Excellent value and if your just want to get out and play a quick and affordable round this place is perfect. Played the course in 3.5 hours on a decently crowded Saturday morning and could have played faster if the groups in front of mine were more familiar with the game. Tee boxes were in good shape, fairways were decent, greens were a little unpredictable but acceptable. Only terrible part of the course are the rough areas. Lost a couple balls that should have been easily found due to poorly maintained bermuda, but no sweat there. Would recommend this course if you’re just looking to sneak outside for a quick casual round.

Surprisingly Nice!

In Knoxville for a football game and looking for a place to play at a reasonable price. Found Whittle Springs - cheap - and expected a “goat ranch.” Nevertheless, I booked a tee time for 3 people and, when we arrived at the parking lot, I thought I was correct. How wrong I was - employees were friendly and helpful, the carts were in excellent, and the course was in good shape. It is laid-out well and the rolling terrain makes play very interesting. There appeared to be quite a few “regular” players - not surprising due to the value.

Fine

A good starter course. Rolling fairways. Fare landing areas. Not real long course. Affordable green fees. Would play again. Had a good day.

Great value

The course is tight with lots of hills and small greens. The greens were tricky because of the slope. I thought it was fun and challenging.

Better than I remembered

Had not played here in 10 or 12 years. It was in much much better shape then I remembered. The greens were very good and fast. If you haven’t played this course in a while, it is worth checking out. Didn’t remember the par 5s being as tough as they are.
