Course is in great shape. As always, rocks can be slippery when wet.

Located within the Qualla Boundary of the Eastern Band of Cherokee, this 18-hole course is a remote, beautiful, challenging, tightly wooded, free-to-play gem. Water is in play on several holes as the course borders the Raven Fork River.

Three spectacular putting greens are located at the start of the property. Artistic and detailed signage everywhere with the tee signs featuring Cherokee names and language. Massive boulders serve as seating areas behind every 5x12 concrete tee pad. A spacious pavilion and a huge fire pit are located in the center of the course.

Tight but fair fairways and visually stunning (and often punishing) greens on many holes. The property shares space with elk, black bear, screech owls, flying squirrels, hellbenders, and the occasional timber rattlesnake.

Local Directions:

The course is located just past Cherokee Central Schools on Big Cove Road, immediately before the bridge over the Raven Fork River. Parking is available on the right side after crossing the bridge over the river. The three putting greens are near the entrance, but expect about a 10-minute walk on a gravel road to reach the course.
