Long time player of Avalon.

The bunkers major over haul is a success, lot of winter kill throughout the course, however, the greens are in serious distress. Avalon is almost back to the original days.

Terrific Course

Avalon is a beautiful, well-kept, and fun course for golfers of all different skill levels. I am always impressed with how nice the staff is and well-maintained the course is. Much improved under the new management. I would highly recommend this course to any golfer. Hole 17 might be the best hole in Knoxville.

Challenging, but fun layout, friendly staff

I’ve played this course two times now and I really like the layout of the place. It has forgiving fairways, but plenty of elevation to keep things interesting. The staff is super friendly and they have a refreshment cart making loops around the course. Carts are also top of the line. Great course, would recommend.

Incredible Knoxville Course

This course is my favorite course in Knoxville to play. The greens on this course are always kept up to pair and in great shape. The hole designs are so much fun for my friends and I to play. Every time I have been here it’s always been a blast. Hole 17 is the best hole I’ve ever played at a golf course. All the workers are extremely friendly and helpful here.

Premium course wanna be

Course has a very nice layout but the conditions are always suspect...it's either the bunkers...or the greens or the thin fairways...once it all comes together then it would be a 4+ star track...

5 Star Course

Very fair/challenging course. The fairways and greens for the most part we’re in great condition. The course looked like they just put brand new sand in the bunkers. The course overall looked in a great shape!

GREENS ARE BACK!!!!

I know Avalon had some issues in the past but let me tell you the golf course is great. THE GREENS ARE SOOOO GOOD! The fairways are coming out of dormancy nicely and i would tell anyone around the area to check it out. The staff made the day as nice as possible with all that is going on. We will be back every week!
