Pros: -Very peaceful, gorgeous landscape
-Perfect split of wooded holes and open ones
-Variation from normal courses in the "mounds"
-Very open, large course
-18 holes "The Mounds", plus 7 wooded ones "The Woods" that just had tee signs added
Cons: A little muddy in spots. That is with any course.

Pros: Despite the setting and length of this course it is laid out very well. much better then Victor Ashe (down in Knoxville).

As noted..Long open holes but the new 9 in the woods do give you some added variety.

Great use of an abandoned golf course. They can probably add a few more long open holes on other parts of the golf course and make this even bigger if they wanted to...However not everyone is into 50 holes of power...

It's still under the radar for the most part. I've yet to run into crowds when I play here.

A lot of elevation changes.

Great use of the water hazards.
Cons: I have to drive forever to get there?

It's sitting on nuclear waste?

Watch out for the snapping turtles if you have to take a swim for a disc.

Other Thoughts: I cannot wait to hit the new 9 up in the woods. It will also be nice when dgcoursereview gets that information added.

This is one great little gem in East Tennessee that is off the radar and you can really get out there and work on your power/long game.

Pros: Amazing layout spread out over about half of the old golf course its built on. My favorite shot is the drive off of the blue tee for #13. You have to watch where your drive lands on this one. If it goes over the right ob line it becomes government property. Overall an amazing experience.
Cons: Hole 6 does not fit with the rest of the course and even throwing from the gold tee it is way to short, Also the pond at the right-side of 10's fairway ate one of my discs. It almost got my sidewinder off of the tee from 17 as well.
Other Thoughts: This course is beastly long and beautifully planned. Other than hole 6 this course has a whole lot to offer a big armed thrower and if you really wing it it also has a lot to offer for a sidearm driver like me.
