Local course

This is the only public course in Oak Ridge, therefore the price, course, and availability of tee times are good. It has loads of potential and can be a great course if managed correctly.
For a high handicapper it's a good test, but for skilled players doesn't push you too far

Tough layout...slopes and hills

Overall OK ....nothing to rave about. The greens are in good shape and hold very well. Most fairways are in good condition. You will find some bare spots in some fairways and around a few collars. A good value for the money...this course is uphill ...downhill..offering several hazards. The clubhouse seems to be in remodel....mode ....no one was working the snack area at 2 PM on a Tues ???? unusual.

Getting better!

The new management is making a difference. Staff friendliness is much better. Couse is getting there. No more knee high second-cut grass. Greens are in better shape than I have seen them in a while. Clubhouse is having a major overhaul. The deli will be done by the end of May. I am looking forward to things to come. It can only get better, and it already has.

The course has seen a lot of water recently and it has hendered the ability to grow grass in some key areas. Though it was early in the season, I’ve seen the course in much better shape. Greens were very fast, but in decent shape. Though I marked the recommend to a friend, I would give it another month or six weeks and it should be good to go, pending rain fall.

They are still working on the #7 tee box, so expect a shorttened hole and construction. It appears that they are updating the clubhouse inside and it looks great. The front desk staff and waitress were friendly and helpful.

New management

The course has been taken over by the city of Oak Ridge. There are quite a few problems with the course but are being addressed. It will take in my opinion at least a couple of months to straighten it out. That being said it was a very nice course in the past. I'm sure it will be fixed in the future. I would wait a little while before playing.

Very good

I played during the end of winter and the fairways were brown and damp so not much roll on the ball but was a lot of fun. Some holes you had to plan your shot. Like all the course I’ve played here lots of hills. Looking forward to better weather and play it again.

Will never go back.

Course was ok. Been raining so there's plenty of mud and water. We were OK with that. I've played here many times with friends and my kids. NEVER been treated so poorly by a staff member at a golf course! Or anywhere for that matter. Will never go back.

Terrible

Terrible conditions. City of Oak Ridge cancelled Billy Casper from managing the course and it was a VERY BAD MOVE!!! No food or snacks anymore, 4 total employees to run the entire course, MAJOR drainage issues, greens were so fuzzy you could barely keep the ball straight, fairways with standing water from rains, tee boxes were over grown. Course has probably not been cut since they took over. Used to be a very nice course. Won't be back anytime soon if ever again. Good luck to you if you play there

New Management off to a rocky start

Pace of play was horrible.

Grounds crew insisted on mowing the greens while making us wait on 4 consecutive holes. Never experienced that before.

Very poor condition

Surprisingly very poor conditions.... Hadn't played it in a while and it's much worse now than previously. Greens are in poor condition, fairways are pretty good, tee boxes are a joke.

Great course for the money

This course could easily be a premier course if they devoted a little more attention to some of the details; fairway grass was fairly thick, greens were spotty, and tee boxes were average.
All in all great course, fabulous lay out, and awesome variety of holes making you use every club in your bag. I think it has possibly the hardest opening holes in all of Knoxville.

Good course for the money

We had a 12:04 tee time. Walked in and no carts were available. We were given free range balls while we waited for carts. Free drinks and snacks. With this being said, we were also given a free round of golf at a future date. This was a first class gesture on the golf course's part. Thank you, Don Tillar this foursome will be back for sure.
