The Great Smoky Mountains are known for many things, but great golf might be one of their best kept secrets. Many visitors to our area expect to see our beautiful outdoor landscapes. The scenic wonders of these mountains are legendary. They become an awesome tourist draw especially when they are combined with man-made attractions like; entertainment, shopping, amusement parks, and other vacation fun. With all these attributes working in their favor, the Smokies have never been considered a golf center by most golf enthusiasts. The topography of our area alone makes it difficult to put in a golf course here in the Smokies. However, despite these challenges, there are still places for the avid golfer to enjoy. Golf Digest’s August 2009 issue, rated Gatlinburg Golf Course as one of the best in Tennessee. It was designed by golf course architect William Langford. Today the beautiful 18 hole course offers players, from beginner to advanced, challenging layouts and awesome views in the heart of the Smokies. The course is easy to find, it is located only five miles from downtown Gatlinburg, adjacent to Dollywood. Gatlinburg Golf Course is open year-round accomodating golfers in all seasons of breath taking beauty. Other courses in our area include; Eagle’s Landing Golf Club and Bent Creek Golf Course.

Another golf-related activity that involves the entire family, is playing putt-putt or mini golf on a multitude of Smokies area courses. These family oriented fun spots allow serious golfers to work on the putting aspect of their game while enjoying the company of friends and relatives. Local golfers have always known that these East Tennessee mountains are not home to the country’s greatest numbers of golf courses. They know however, that the golf courses we have, may be among the most scenic and beautiful on the planet.
