You probably know all about what Sevier County has to offer – shopping, the national park, hiking, rafting, attractions, etc. But one of the best kept secrets is the three golf courses that offer challenging play and unique views.
The Sevierville Golf Club recently underwent major renovations and additions. It now offers two 18-hole courses; The Highlands is a par 70 and The River is a par 72. There is an extensive driving range, a large putting green and a chipping area to practice before you get on the course. They have the capability to accommodate large groups and a restaurant with a patio overlooking the course. Sevierville Golf Club also features a special offer in our Money-Savings Coupon section of our site.
Heading towards Gatlinburg, you’ll find the Gatlinburg Golf Course. This 18-hole course has some of the most dramatic contours you’ll ever play. For instance, #12 is known as “Sky Hi”. Nearly 200 yards long, it drops 200 feet from tee to green. Meanwhile, #3 is a 529-yard par 5, known as “Long Lane”. They have a fully equipped pro shop and food services area.
Bent Creek Golf Course is an 18-hole course that was designed by Gary Player. The front nine plays on the valley floor while the back nine is a challenging mountain course. Named for the stream that wanders through it, Bent Creek has a putting green, full-service golf shop and
the Creek Side Grille.
There are a lot of golf courses, especially in the south. But how many can get your heart rate going, not just because of the play, but because of the surrounding views? When you play golf in Sevier County, that’s just what will happen.
