Very Interesting and Fun

They have improved the course, clubhouse and amenities a lot in the 20 years since last I played here. The extreme elevation changes and many blind tee and some blind second shots add to the experience but can be frustrating the first time you play here. However, I’ll have fond memories of both times I’ve played it and the extreme ness and natural beauty of the course and surroundings will bring me back again. I was glad to see that they are reinvesting in the course and that it was in better shape now than 20 years ago. # 12 200 yard par 3 with a huge decent from the top of a mountain made me laugh again at the “sheer” ridiculousness of the required shot - very fun!

Awful

Course was in HORRIBLE shape. Tee boxes were a mess, greens were filled with crab grass, fairways haven’t been cut, and the bugs were like a scene from a Stephen King novel. Save your money and golf Bent Creek or LITERALLY ANY OTHER COURSE including mini golf.

Nice course

This a pretty difficult course to play but is a fair course. With good shots you can get good results. If it's your first visit, it will do you well to play with someone familiar with the course. Many blind shots. There are very few flat spots on the course which adds to the challenges! I want to play it again now that I have seen it! I will be back.

Greens are fading

Great course but the greens are dying. There weren't many people playing but they were all in front of us. We waited almost 20 minutes per hole.

Great Day

WE had an excellent round. The course is challenging, but offers good risk/reward opportunities. The views of the surrounding mountains was spectacular. I highly recommend this course to all golfers.

beautiful course

awesome course! the staff is friendly and welcomes first timers with open arms. the course itself is very challenging (played the whites) with tight windows and shot shape, especially on the back 9. the views are worth paying the greens fee and #12, is the best par 3 I've ever played, (200 ft drop from tee to green). highly recommend if coming to pigeon forge/gatlinburg must play once, if not twice!

Elevation Changes

This course had lots of elevation changes and some unique layouts on several holes. The course was in excellent condition. Would definitely play this course again when we return to this area.
