Overrated ... can't understand why everyone seems to love it...

I've played golf for over 40 years. I've played on some pretty nice courses. This one is not one of them. There are 18 holes, 18 greens, laid out in a very confusing manner. Hole 17 and 18 are the only ones I can really say are nice ones. The others are contrived and forgettable.

The worst part...pace of play. I have played here a few times and it has always had groups upon groups and waits on every hole. This time, I bypassed groups and backtracked playing the holes I missed and finally had a 4 hour round. Every other time, 4:45 plus every time. It seems like the convention crowd are playing a scramble out here every time I play.

My guess is that those who rate this 5-stars are mesmerized by a green fairway and adequately maintained greens comparing this to their dried-out, crusty muni at home. It is not a top course in my opinion.

Looks open but plays tight!!

The course was not busy and was fun to play. Even for this time of year the rough was defined and thick. You need to keep your tee shot in play. It looked like they irritated the greens about 3 weeks ago. But they were putting true. Just remember there are 5 different tees to play from. The Blue tees are longer than average. The Green tees is great for an average golfer.

Fast Greens = Understatement

Wonderful course, wonderful setting. Smokey Mountains continuously in view, super weather, great golf deal. It's no wonder I bit off more than I could chew today. Chose to play the Blue Tees @ approx 6600 yards and should have known better after needing Driver + 3 wood to get to #1 for a round opening par. The rest of the day I was challenged by the deeper than I prefer bermuda rough (which is where I normally spend the majority of my time). Today was different though. I hit 10/14 fairways and fell in love with them. The ball sits up so perfectly in the fairways here. Not sure how they get them so manicured, but Kudos.... Keep it up. The Glass table tops were something else....(I'm talking about the Greens). They were soft and receptive, they rolled so true....but if you missed the hole, they continued to roll and roll and roll. Lightning! Guess they used Rain-X on those glass table tops. I would love to know the Stimp meter reading for the day.... just to say I've done it. Only 3 putted twice, but also missed some short ones because I'm not used to lagging that softly. The ones that went in though gave me a solid feeling of pride and accomplishment. The course was impeccable today.... my game was not. I still loved and enjoyed the round tremendously. I highly recommend this course and establishment. Don't be shy though.... be timid, tee it forward. Give yourself a fair fighting chance. Again, a Shout Out to Sevierville Golf's Maintenance Staff (and Pro who I got to meet). I'll be back!

Awesome fairways

Had a 12:15 tee time. Course was moving at a good pace as we hardly waited on any hole. Greens were fast but the fairways were near perfect.

#1 in TN??? No way...

This course has a #1 rating in Tennessee. I can't undstand why. The course is nice maintained but the holes are unusually routed. The hazards are placed to do damage not challenge. The pace of play is slow...a 5 hour 10 minute round a wait on every hole and every shot.

This course is adjacent to the city convention center and two large hotels. I suspect the crowd on my day were there for a convention golf outing with multiple hackers and once-a-year golfers. But this was my second experience here and it was the same before.

Maybe it can be called the #1 convention course for a scramble but not for a pleasant, friendly golf round.

The layout was nice, have a links course vibe to it. Lots of water. This course was wide open and sitting in a valley there was a lot of wind in my face. Very challenging if your not use to these conditions. I lost a lot of golf balls because of this. I struggled badly but I’m sure other people on the course were doing good. This is not for me but who am I to judge. The only way I would play here again is with friends who never have played here and if I can battle the wind on my own.
