Caddie's Summary:
. Another fantastic Fazio design. Typical of his style, the course is etched out beautifully in a picturesque Tennessee landscape. Rolling hills and mountainous backdrops are common and the natural feel of the course is wonderful. Holes are well spread and rarely will you see a home unless peeking through the trees for a drive that went astray. Deep and arced bunkers near the greens and large, sculpted fairway bunkers add visual appeal. Greens are fast and firm with almost perfect rolls. Also normal to Fazio's designs, the greens average over 35yd in depth (large) and about fifty percent have major ridges and undulations adding to the challenge of both approach shots and the putting surface. Fall is a perfect time to play and if you get the opportunity to play the course with a member, do not hesitate.
