About

Holes 9
Par 36
Length 3490
Slope 113
Rating 35.7
Type Public/Municipal
The North Course at the McCabe Golf Course was completely redone recently, to reopen 2007, newly laid out and totally redesigned. The North Course at the McCabe Golf Course is the longest golf course, a par-36 that measures 3,490 yards from the Blue tees and a par-37 golf course that plays to 2,739 from the Red tees for ladies, should they choose to go that route. A round of golf kicks off on a par-4 hole that comes in at 372 yards from the Blue tee. Because this golf course is longer than the other two, there's room for a couple of par-5 holes: No. 4 measures 569 yards from the Blue tee, and the sixth hole plays to 538 yards from the Blue tee. A round of golf on the North Course at the McCabe Golf Course concludes on a par-4 hole that measures 348 yards from the Blue tee.

Straight forward, gettable, and forgiving

I played the South and Middle courses (9 holes each) today (there is also a North 9, which I didn't get a chance to play), so this review will be based on those courses.

By and large McCabe is a relatively short and straight track with wide open fairwways.. Even playing all the way back (blue tees) there were only two holes that tested my rental clubs (that maxed out at a 6 iron) from a distance standpoint.

Having said that #9 on the South course (420 yard par 4, with a gradual uphill elevation change the whole way) and #3 on the Middle course (439 yard par 4) are legit testers. When the tees are all the way back (as they were today) the par three 6th is a good 215 as well (although it is a little downhill).

The course really doesn't do much to protect against a good score, or punish you for making mistakes and seems like a great place to go for a pick-me-up/feel-good round.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the fairways and greens were decently maintained. Unfortunately, it appears that many of the golfers here simply don't care much about doing their part when it comes to caring for the course. Several bunkers were unraked (fortunately, I managed to avoid them all) and multiple times I had to remind myself that, no, the greens weren't just punched... there actually are this many unrepaired ball marks. I'm not exaggerating when I say I don't think you could take 10 steps on any green without coming upon an unrepaired mark of a clump of grass from a mark that was just left on the green (in many places it was more like 3-5 feet). As you can imagine, this made putting very difficult at times.

I always hesitate to say that I wouldn't recommend a course; however, the care (not) taken by other players on this course make it really difficult to recommend. I do think the track itself - especially given the service I experienced - has plenty of potential to be a nice afternoon on the linls... the course is doing nothing wrong. But it's players really do make it difficult for other to enjoy.

Always Enjoyable!!

Played the Middle & North courses. Other than the fairways being dormant, course was in excellent condition. Greens were smooth and fairly fast.

Courteous staff, courteous, and professional. Started ahead of tee time and finished 3hrs. and 29 minuets.

Used my Tennessee Passport, paid for cart only,

$12.00 cost. Leon and his staff do a great job

One Experience

A good public course, with variety as they pair the three courses for 18 holes. We played the middle and north for a challenging 18 (handicap 25). some of the holes on the North course had challenging elevation changes (especially the 9th). Note, the local restaurants are close and good as the course only has a snack bar.
