The leaves are everywhere. I needed a spotter for holes 1 through 9 and even then I had a hard time finding drives that landed on the fairway. Signs and tee pads are great.

This course is located on the campus of Clayton Homes. The front 9 are almost exclusively wooded holes with an average distance of ~400 ft. Starting at hole #10, the course opens up to mostly flat fields with the average hole distance jumping to ~550 ft. Several of the back 9 holes have multiple tees, including hole 18 that features a tricky downhill shot over a creek through a relatively small opening in a tree line.

The course is groomed regularly by the Maryville-Alcoa-Blount County Parks & Recreation Commission and the paths are clearly marked. It offers championship-level challenges and covers about 120 acres with two permanent baskets on each hole.
