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...
The course is in great shape! Best course I’ve played on! Had a lot fun playing today and will 100% be back.
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 were Great
This course has the best greens in Knoxville area. We had a great time. Place has a great layout.
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!
Love playing with my family of 4 at Avalon. Staff is tremendous. Course is outstanding. Restaurant/Bar/Grill are 10 out of 10. Cant wait to go again!
The course was great, cart girl was around just enough and very pretty. Had a great time.
Loved the new greens
After a night of heavy rain i was concerned the course would be in rough shape, what a pleasant surprise, it drained great and was in excellent condition. I really like the new greens.
Very nice layout and courses is in very good shape for this time of year. Beautiful course.
Love this place
Very friendly people and always helpful. The courses is in great shape . Beautiful holes with plenty of water for a challenge. Greens are rolling great and is very competitive layout. I will definitely play here again soon.
Overall really a great course. Despite the wet conditions of the day before all the greens remained remarkably consistent throughout, and there was always firm footing in the fairway. I would recommend taking the trip out to Lenoir City to get a round in if you have time. Finally, I just have to say how much i love the golf carts bluetooth and GPS systems.
Really enjoyed myself at this course, it had great greens and well manicured fairways. The golf carts has very accurate and interactive mapping and gps systems in the carts which let me not have to use my range finder at all! But again I’m just very impressed at the consistency of the greens throughout.
First time on the course since Thanksgiving 2019...what an improvement! The greens have been refurbished since last year and are really looking good. After the bunkers were rebuilt a couple of years ago the course is really coming around. This is one of the best layouts in East Tennessee. It’s long enough and challenging enough for low handicappers, but wide enough for high handicappers to still have fun. The Avalon staff is always great too. Once the warm weather hits the fairways and really gets them growing they will be great too...last year they were outstanding.
This course gave me everything I wanted for a good price. While it was wet and greens were slow, I know that when in season it plays much tougher. The sloping fairways and elevation changes provide challenges for all levels of golfers. When its in shape, the rough also provides an extra obstacle when you miss off of the tee. Staff are always very friendly and accommodating as well.
Solid Course Offering Challenges and Risk/Reward Plays
Good course and fun to play. When it's green and in shape it offers great golf with many holes offering different challenges and angles of attack. The sloped fairways and elevation changes add in some difficulty and in the summer thicker rough requires accuracy off the tee and tests your scrambling ability after errant shots. This course offers a great value to golfers of many skill levels and you can't beat their twilight rates. Even though the grille was closed this particular day I have stopped in before and would recommend just about any food on the menu, bartenders are always very welcoming as well.
We chose this course based on previous experiences as a nice and challenging place to play. This course was in terrible condition today and for the foreseeable future. Greens were blotchy and bouncy. Some holes had temporary holes in front of the real hole. Didn't even get to play 1 par 3 since hole was closed. None of this was information was relayed to us prior to playing or at checkin. Definitely not worth the money to play it. Maybe in a year or two when they get their act together on maintenance of a course or at least letting folks know ahead of time with a significant price break. Won't be going back for a long time.
Avalon should be paying ME to play this track
The course was in terrible shape. The greens were awful and they have 3 temp greens that are basically 3 “greens” that were painted fairways that are impossible to putt on. Not to mention, 1 hole was closed.
I feel bad for Avalon , amazing place , extremely nice staff. The greens have had a rough summer. The were residing as I played today , so they are well aware of the degree of trouble. Three greens had temporary greens set up because the damage was so extensive, The pro shop mage me aware of the issues before I played. I hope they will recover from this
I’ve played here several times every year for awhile,but not this year. They had four temporary greens The front nine was tolerable but the back was pretty bad. The fairways were great. It should have been posted on hot deals because I probably would not have went.
