brilliant

Yes it's only 9 holes, but well worth your time to play again and again. The places is beautiful and the conditions are superb. There's challenge, two tough par 3s, a driveable par 4, and two great par 5s. I played 27 holes off different tees each time and loved it.

Best greens in middle Tn

The day we played the greens were awesome. Fast and would hold shots. The scenic views are no worth the fees not to mention this is one of the best 9 hole courses around. Plush fairways and deep pot bunkers.

Love the course

Played it 25 years ago and didn’t know they had redone the course. Loved the layout and the views are awesome. This is a hidden jewel. Can’t wait to play again.

Probably most scenic course I have ever played

This is a nine hole course with a multitude of tee boxes, fairly long with undulations in all the greens. The two par 3s are beautiful with mountain crest views behind greens. Good practice area, course is walkable. Greens are bent grass and in pretty fair condition, fairways are bermuda and very lush. Course is nicely bunkered and fairways are rolling with mostly elevated tees. Just a great course on top of Monteagle Mountain, an hour from Chattanooga or Murfreesboro.

Perfect round

By far the best course I have played in a while. Walked in to the pro who was very nice and welcoming after our 75 minute drive. We went off at 0800 hours and set our own pace with nobody to worry about. The course was not overly difficult but you had to think on a few shots, for the most part everything is laid our in front of you. The tee boxes were very flat and mowed close, fairways were amazing and the ball set up nicely, the greens were somewhat firm but very quick and receptive with quite a bit of undulation. The course's defenses are strategically placed bunkers and the tall links style rough. Will definitely be back to play this amazing course more often now.

Hidden Gem

Anyone from Nashville or Chattanooga or anyone driving on 24 between the 2 should plan to stop and play this wonderful 9 hole Championship layout you will be glad you did. Can be played as 18 also w different tees. Very challenging course with some incredible views from the top of the plateau.

Immaculate greens

Beautiful mountain course with fantastic fast challenging greens. David the assistant pro walked up to me on the putting green and introduced himself to me and my playing partner and asked us if we needed anything and any information about the course. We enjoyed it so much we invited a group from Texas to come and stay at this resort for a long weekend. Difficult but fair and great shape!

Great 9 hole course, beautiful bluff views

Grew up in Sewanee, played the old course and this was the 2nd time playing the new layout. Layout is great and the views are awesome. Staff could stand to be a little friendlier but wasn’t there to talk to them was there to play!

Don't Miss

Wonderful layout, dramatic views, and angles galore. Course was in perfect shape--greens rolled perfectly and were just firm enough but not too firm. Fairways were wonderful. For someone who appreciates golf course architecture, this is a must play. The routing is superb and it is a fairly easy walk considering the mountain terrain. The course rolls through the hills forcing club choice decisions with longer par 5s as well as a devilish short par 4. The two par 3s provide absolutely stunning mountain views. If you're in the area, don't miss this course.
