Pros: The Parisians.... (parisites?) are very friendly. The front nine of the course is fairly well laid out with a nice ace chance on hole 1. From there is goes back into the woods. Hole 12 is a simple but great hole involving a toss of about 200 feet over a lake.
One thing thatis overlooked about this ourse is the variety and risk/reward. There are sooo many different shots to be attempted on this course. At the same time, anyone can get by with just a decent backhand/forehand. There is also now a map at the tee for hole 1 that has an overview of the entire course.
Cons: Some of the local kids have been vandalizing signs. It's a shame too because they were very nice. The back 9 is just not beginner friendly at all. There are some definite risk/reward scenarios, but it's still hard.
Other Thoughts: This course grows on me every time I play it. The shot selection is huge, and that's what makes this a good course. While the back 9 is a bit of an adventure.... there are paths that can be found after playing the course a time or two. The back 9 is somewhat of an acquired taste. It just takes a couple times to really understand the lines. Food and stuff is right down the road so it's fairly convenient

Gonna be a good one
Pros: This course gives everything a person could want. Wooded holes, water holes, open holes, long, short, etc. Teepads are good and the signs on the tees are pretty spot on.
Cons: Not a big fan of 9 holes on one side of the highway and 9 on the other but they used the land that was available to them.
Other Thoughts: This course has great potential. It has several holes that are unique and unlike any other in the northern TN, southern KY area. When a few fairways are defined on some holes this course can be great.

Solid mix and challenging.
Pros: *Updated review* (first played 1/2/09)
This 18 hole course offers a decent challenge with a great variety of holes and requires several types of shots. I enjoy a course with a mix of open and wooded holes as well as some water hazards thrown in and this one does not disappoint. There is also a good variety of hole length and a tiny bit of elevation, too. The concrete tees are excellent and baskets are in good shape.
Every hole is unique and offers its own challenges. Risk/reward comes to mind on many tees, and almost every hole there is a good chance you will gain or lose strokes against your opponent. There are several holes where you have to work hard for a 3 and feel good about it if you get one. Water hazards in the form of a creek on the front and a pond on the back do come into play. #12 across the pond is a nice over the water hole!
There is plenty of parking. Restrooms are available (and were open in winter!).
Cons: The first time I played here a couple years ago was when this course was new, and a big con was the fairways, but time and work has solved that problem, which is always good to see a course improve.
However, there are still some. The tee signs are the most obvious, though really nice (and it looks as if they are already on the second set), there has been much vandalism done to them, which is really too bad. Navigation is not too bad, and there is now a map at the kiosk, and a map on this site, but direction signs and better paths to lead first timers to the next tee could be helpful in a few spots. (Often times on the front the closest tee you see is not the next one.)
The park roads and walking path can get in the way on the front 9. There are some swampy areas on the back (I assume only after a rain.)
This course is really out the way to get to from anywhere.
Other Thoughts: I really like this course- it is not perfect, but the holes themselves make for a good round. However, for me it is just too far out of the way to play as often as I would like. I do recommend this course if you are in the area, or if you don't mind a little bit of a drive off of I-40 between Memphis and Nashville. (But most people are not going to be anywhere near this area.) Locals are lucky to have a course of this caliber.
Park at the mini Eiffel tower. (It is Paris!) Front 9 is a loop on one side of the road. Cross the road by #1's basket to get to the back 9.

Pros: After an initial short downhill 'Ace' possibility hole, the course turns and travels through woods. The fairways are clearly seen, and this is an entertaining course. Hole 12 features a carry over a sizeable lake, and hole 16 runs closely along its other bank. The back nine is definitely harder than the front, so be prepared when crossing the road. The parks department has continued to improve this course adding benches and other additions.
Cons: It's a very new course. The back nine hasn't received tons of play, so it's still a bit 'green'.
Other Thoughts: This course is my home course, and I'm very proud to have it in Paris. I would definitely recommend it.

Cons: Lost my xcliber in pond! :(
Other Thoughts: All in general the course is excellent I like a tuff course. The front 9 is a breeze. The first hole is seriously a teaser. Once you get to the back nine it is difficult, alot of time you couldn't see the pin until your second or third stroke or you have a fareway three feet wide next to water (hole 16).

Pros: The course is challenging and offers a variety of shots. Some holes are technical and others are wide open.
Cons: Some of the holes are not the best and don't always have clearly defined fairways, mainly because it has been poorly maintained. Ones that come to mind are 16 and 17. Hole 16 sits right on a hill that slopes down to a pond, and the fairway is not clear. In every group I have played with at least one shot has rolled or bounced into the water, even when it is appeared to be a great shot. Hole 17 is not more then 250 and is always an impressive duece, there just really isn't a clear path to the basket. Hole 14 is also difficult to locate from the tee, it sits on the opposite hill among a grove of pine tress (good to have a spotter here).
Other Thoughts: If you are going to play a tournament here I would highly advice at least walking the course first since there are many blind tee shots.
There has also been a great deal of vandalism to tee signs throughout the course, so some are missing.

Pros: First hole is terrific, an ace run of about 250' from a hilltop.
Other Thoughts: Par is 31 for 9 holes. Great variety of shots. Holes 4 and 9 are incredibly narrow.
