Decent track, not worth the rate

One of the biggest perks of this course is its location and proximity to the main strip in Pigeon Forge. You also have some good views of Pigeon Forge, the Smokey Mountains, and even the tops of some roller coasters at Dolly Wood.

The course was in pretty good condition given the amount of rain the course had received.

There were a few tee boxes that had no grass, and when I say no grass, I mean not a blade of grass--not ideal.

To play this course, you have to be part billy goat. About the only time you have a decent lie is when the ball is teed up. I understand it's a course in the mountains, but some holes don't even have a landing area. Some of the hole designs don't make much sense either.

Overall, it's a bad course and it has some fun holes (especially the par 3s) but I'm not sure it's a $50/round course, especially given some of the courses that are close by.

Beautiful scenery and challenging holes

This course has awesome mountain views and unique holes not found on most courses. Due to recent heavy rains the course was cart path only today and the recently aerated greens were bumpy.yet It was still very enjoyable to play.

Great course, bad time of year

For the excessive amount of rain we have had the course is in great shape. The greens were still showing signs of being micro-punched recently, but this effected the roll minimally. Back nine is far more impacted by the rain so enjoy the front.

Gatlinburg Golf Course

Up charge for GPS cart and additional tv features. Decent course, fun layout with evaluation changes. Lot of blind shots and if not playing with some one familiar with the course hard to judge distance and pin placement as well as course design. Fairly open and forgiving if not in the fairway. Tight green areas on most of course. No warnings about greens being conditioned and very bumpy.

Great course in the smokies!

It was wet wet wet and it rained the whole round, but this course is fun and the staff is great. It is golfer friendly and not stuck up. Wife is a beginner and felt very comfortable.

Will play again every time in Gatlinburg TN.

I know they can’t control the weather but this was a swamp!! Some of the holes should have been just shut down until it dries out!! Pretty disappointed because I have been looking forward to playing this track!! Don’t think I will come back

Excellent condition for time of year.

Course was in excellent condition for the time of year. Only minor problem with the fairways was due to people not following the cart path only rule. Clubhouse and golf shop was very nice. Staff was very helpful. Overall great layout and experience. If you go during the rainy winter months don’t let the wet appearance of the greens fool you. They are very fast due to the manicuring from the staff.

Underwhelming

I was a little disappointed with the golf course. The front nine was very ordinary with very little a golfer couldn't find on any course in the U.S. I am surprised anyone is willing to pay $55 to play this course after the Bermuda has gone dormant. The back nine was very fun to play with narrow fairways, many elevation changes, including the amazing par 3. In my opinion this still didn't make up for the lackluster front.

Disappointed

We’ve played here before and we were excited about returning to play as we’ve always enjoyed the course. But - The greens were in terrible shape. Pace started out okay, but it soon became clear there were some people playing that held up the course. We spent twice as long in the back 9 as the front because a few groups got slower and slower. This course is hilly and difficult, so really there should be a set of tees moved up for people that are rookies to speed up pace of play and inform them to “play up”. They seemed short-handed and no beverage cart for a Sunday. Very few opportunities to fill our water bottles and it was hot. The carts are fancy and There is an extra charge to use GPS in the cart (we have our own so didn’t use it), but the cart stops and slows down on steep hills, etc based on where you are on the course. I wish this fancey GPS had told the slow people in front us “pick up your ball and move on” and “stop looking for balls you will never find”. I think the money spent on these carts may have been better spent to get the greens in shape, have a Marshall to speed up play, and run a beverage cart. The person working there was doing the best they could and was friendly. The $49 per person was WAY too much for the condition the course was in and it was not fun. Sad because we really have enjoyed playing this course in the past. It’s doubtful we’ll return.

Nice, Slightly boring

The course was in very good condition overall. The clubhouse is nice. There are separate greens for putting and chipping pre-round. I also saw signs for hitting nets as well, but did not check them out.

The carts have course GPS, but you have to pay for it. Not sure why that's not included with greens fees of the fifty dollar range for a slightly above average public course.

Front 9: All nine holes are pretty much the same hole varying in lengths. Straight as an arrow with large fairways. Above average golfers probably won't have much fun on the front nine. I found myself kind of bored on the front side.

Back 9: Much more variation of shots to play, fun layout. Enjoyed the back 9 much more than the front.

Pace of play was good. Under 4 Hours for 18 and a group of 3.

Back nine was mots challenging. Would love to play again since this was my first time. Course knowledge would go a long way in course management.
