Great track!

This was a great course! The front 9 reminded me of playing at Myrtle Beach while the back 9 reminded you were in the mountains.

Even after experiencing a lot of rain and flooding recently, the course was in great shape and the greens were pure and rolling great.

From the time you drop off your clubs, the staff was super friendly and accommodating.

My only complaint is that I didn't get to play the River Course or take advantage of the replay rate!

If you're in the area, I would definitely recommend playing here!

Nice course

We were switched from the Highland course to the River course with our approval. This was our first time playing this course and would definitely play again. The views were just stunning. Not familiar with playing in mountain terrain I didn’t have a clue how the greens were breaking. It didn’t matter the course made up for it. Very well laid out course. No two holes are the same. A must play if in the area.

Rugged Mountains

This is a very challenging course in the mountains. Hills, sand water,very challenging greens fast and undulating!
The grass off the fairway is so thick it swallows the ball! Had a great time!

Great course not without its challenges

Played Highlands course on Oct 18, 2018. Course was in very good condition and rough was recently cut. A few fairways were still soggy from recent rain, but overall course in great shape. Bent greens were soft and would hold, but were quick!!! With pin placements on ridges, it made for some tough putts. Overall, great weather and course condition, will definitely be back!

Fair, but challenging course

Very impressed by eery thing at the course. Only thing that was not first class were the greens. They were very spotty and there were lots of unfixed ball marks. I would not hesitate playing again and I would highly recommend. Best course in the area in my opinion.

Highlands is a shot makers layout

Very nice course, however the driving range was closed so had to sit until the starter allowed us to. So for 30+ minute with no one going off the tee box we sat...

Glad we played but probably would not go back considering the number of courses available!

Lovely course

The course covers a lot of land. It's too bad that there isn't a card to show the layout. A lot of driving.

River Island

VERY challenging course. Course is in fair condition; but I feel the bad winter we just experienced was the culprit. Absolutely beautiful surroundings. Will definitely play this course again.

Unique Layout, but expected more!

Visited this course 2 days prior to playing, to get the gist of the layout and details, since we were staying nearby for vacation. We heard it was CARTPATH ONLY because of "astronomical" rains during the spring and immediately pinned our ears back. Unfortunately, ALL of the courses in the area had the same rule. We decided to play anyways.
Discounted greens fee which was a plus, but it was for the aerated greens. Nice layout, first 6 holes are flat with lots of water, then cross the street and get into Hilly terrain. The winds were brutal but thank god for warm air. The fact that the majority of the course was BONE DRY had me scratching my head as to why it was cartpath only. Typical uptight setting, city owned course. Didn't see a beverage cart until the 14th hole, major disappointment. Had to call the clubhouse TWICE to request it. 36 hole Complex, probably need more bev cart drivers. All in all a cool layout with 6 par 3s, some over 200 yards, but nothing spectacular as I fully expected being in the SMOKIES. Only got to play once during the week due to sub-par temps. Hope to return to the area in the future and check out other tracks.

Nice course

Great course, however was hoping it was carved out of the mountains. Other than being a great course with nice architecture, it is just like what I play back in Michigan.

Course was extremely wet and muddy due to all the rain Sevierville has had. Greens were very slow. This is one of my favorite courses. It will be back to awesomeness in no time.

Too Wet

Took advantage of a great price on GolfNow for a well known course and drove almost an hour to get there. Had played the River course the last several times going there and was always impressed with the greens and their speed and receptiveness. Unfortunately this time the experience was less than desirable. A little disappointed that it was cart path only, but realized real quick why. The course was so wet you literally sank walking to your ball. Finding a spot to hit from outside casual water became difficult and of course that also meant that greens had not been mowed (not sure for how long). Greens were bumpy/fuzzy and extremely slow (though the chipping/putting green at the clubhouse were in much better condition). Believe the course should have remained closed when it was this wet.
