Too Much $$$ for the course condition
I have played Avalon in the past, but is has been a while.
I am extremely disappointed that I paid this much money for a course in which 3/4 of the greens are dead!
Other course conditions were very good, but they have lost their greens, which made the round almost miserable.
One member of our group was ready to leave after 3 holes. Needless to say, this took the joy out of the day.
Could be so good
Great layout, but greens were generally horrendous. Too wet for bent grass with temps in mid-90’s in late July. But I’ve played forever and understand this is a tough time of year, but why charge $60 for sub-par greens??
Layout is incredible, but I likely won’t be back unless the greens are renovated with an ultra-dwarf or there is a concession on the pricing. Too much for greens that are struggling.
Greens are horrible
Nice course layout. I was playing course for the first time and was impressed with the overall quality of tee boxes and fairways. Pace of play was great, finished in 3’30”.
Greens are burned up and in horrible condition. Very difficult to putt and several of the greens have unnatural holes that appear to be created from insects and or bees.
Avalon Country Club never disappoints! 18 holes that challenge your game with greens that are well maintained. Every staff member is very friendly and will help you with your needs. Golf carts feature GPS tracking that allows you to view the yardage to the hole, or anywhere on the hole. I have never had a problem when playing at Avalon, great course for an even better price! Highly recommended!
Greens need help
Overall the course was ok but the greens were not in very good shape. Lots of burnt areas and some kind of bug had burrowed holes all over the greens. Very hard to putt on
Very bad greens
It’s a beautiful layout course, however, the greens are very very bad, if you’re a single number handicap this course is not for you.
I have played Avalon often for 20 years. Bunkers were pitiful for 15 of those and now are playable. Tees aren't level on 5 tees and 9 need some grass. The greens are the worst in the Knoxville area. 3 of the greens aren't playable and 4 have little bent grass to putt on. Layout is awesome along with facilities.
Greens Still Struggling
The course was in great shape except for a handful of greens. They have some kind of burrowing bee/wasp that has eaten a couple of greens so badly they are unplayable. Other greens without the bug are in great shape. Made for inconsistent conditions which lowered my score for value for the money. How about a discount when you are struggling with greens? Pace of play was decent. It was nice to have a cart girl on property selling beverages.
I got my teetime on GolfNow and got paired up with 3 members. At first I was a little annoyed that I couldn't play alone, but getting paired up was truly a treat and a blessing. The members helped a lot with course knowledge and were very pleasant people in general.
The course was a lot of fun, with plenty of unique challenges. Prior to the start of the round, the area was hit hard by a storm so there were plenty of soggy areas, but it didn't affect the quality of play very much. The only negative I could say about the course was that a few greens had some dead spots from disease, and the 11 green was literally unplayable. That's a shame because it was the only blemish on this jewel of a course. Three holes require carrying water hazards which adds another dimension of fun and challenge. I'd highly recommend it to anyone.
I always enjoy playing this course challenging yet fun always in great shape!
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.
The course, staff, and carts are all incredible. I would recommend this to everyone. You won’t be disappointed.
Best course in East TN! I have so much fun playing here. I will definitely be back!
