Don’t call it a comeback

I hadn’t played the course before this year, (3) times now. I heard it was in bad shape and new owners are putting a lot into it. Can’t beat the views and overall value. It’s going to be a great course.

Nice golf experience at Wild Laurel Golf Clulb

My son and I played this course for the first time during our family vacation. What we enjoyed the most was the beautiful setting of the golf course in the Smoky Mountains. There were some thick grass clippings in the fairways of a few holes, but overall, the course was in solid shape. The greens are in excellent shape considering the heat of summer! We even saw a black bear on the back nine through a patch of trees just off of the course. The staff was very nice to us during our visit to the clubhouse. We had a lovely time. We will be back again on our next vacation! Thank you.

You get what you pay for

Greens are small. That’s this courses defense. Tee boxes and fairways not mowed. Greens in excellent shape. Bent grass. For the value, good course and I would play again. Attendant at bar about as friendly as a pit bull with AIDS.

Complaint

On the last 3 times I played this course. It was very slow & finally left the course after the 15th & the 17th hole. Have been playing this course since 2014 til today. However if it continues to be slow * No ranger to speed things up. Will go to the other courses.

Fun, relaxing round with the family

This course was nestled in a very beautiful valley and our family had a peaceful, leisurely round while passing through on vacation. There were a few blind tee shots and the conditions were very dry but for the bargain price on GolfNow it was an excellent value. The new clubhouse was still under construction but looks to be awesome with a terrific view of the course below and mountains in the distance. This course is not yet at its full potential but if can get a good deal and are not super picky about having perfect lush grass you should have a nice time in the Smoky Mt. Valley at Wild Laurel. I would play this course again.
