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.

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.

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.

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.

This was a beautiful day for golf and it was enhanced by the friendly greeting in the pro shop by the attendent on duty. Dennis is a fine example of how to treat a player of any skill level. All of the staff are simply GOOD at their jobs.

This is a great course. While it has Some difficult shots none of them are unfair. Plenty of open fairways great tee boxes fast greens all make for a good round of golf. There is a good bit of water and plenty of sand but again a great challenge and a great course.

We played right after it stopped raining so the course was really wet, therefore we didn't get any roll on our drives or iron shots. It made the course a little longer to play but it was still fun. It wasn't real busy so we weren't pushed at all and we were able to play pretty fast. Will play here again when we are in the Smoky's. Will probably play both courses next time.

The course was in great shape. The bent grass greens were fast and true. I was only in two bunkers but they were in good condition. The ball will settle to the bottom in the rough, but the fairways are generous. A good variety of hole shapes and sizes with some elevation changes.

We enjoyed it so much my brother and I played it again the next day.
