The lower 12 holes of the course along the river are very windy a lot of the time since there are few trees or hills to block the wind. The day I played it was cartpath only.due to wet conditions and the greens were still recovering from airiating. The pace of play was ok and the staff at the caddy shack were very helpful and friendly. I play this course a few times each year and enjoy the challenge. When you cross the road there are 4 holes that are in the hills and trees Which gives you a substantial change up. 17 and 18 are outstanding finishing holes. Try it, you'll like it

I love the River course at Sevierville! I got a $16 hot Deal and got there to find they were trying to switch me to the Highland course. Now, I like it too, but I booked River on GN. To be fair, they said we could play River{ which we did}, but no maintenance had been done in a week! Why sell tee times if you’re not gonna maintain the course? Greens were a little shaggy, but so what.....Play it if you get a chance!!!!!

Beautiful weather and Course conditions for end of November. Loved the course and layout. Each hole was secluded and just enough water, sand and trouble to make it interesting. Loved the various tee boxes for different handicaps

This course is a beautiful course to play but we found that the staff behind the counter to be unpleasant. We also discovered that they charge their tourist twice as much to play. I have never heard of this before,

. I have played many courses that charge differently for the time of the year or for seniors but I have never heard of a course charging their tourists double. I

As a tourist I found this to be offensive and I would certainly not return to this particular course.

Good layout, heavily played but still in great condition. Some holes which really made you think, especially off the tee.

However, the whole experience was ruined by pace of play and a total lack of concern to address it.

5hrs 10 mins is too long. A group outing of about 16 players blocked the course, refused to let anyone play through and killed the place.

We didn't once see a marshall or anyone trying to address the situation. Not good.

The staff was great. The weather was perfect. The course condition was amazing. It was our first time playing this course. We were paired with a local playing by himself, who gave us great tips on each hole. Played one of my best rounds ever. It was a great experience, can't wait to play it again.
