I play this course more than any other in Knoxville. I think it is the best kept secret golf facility in TN. The staff is very friendly and the golf course is always in excellent condition, especially the greens. As a matter of fact, this is a really good layout, and it usually never takes longer than 4 hours to play. This is really what kills most other golf courses because who wants to take 5+ hours just to play 18 holes. I think it is a bargain for the price and is getting better every year. Keep up the good work Ruggles Ferry.

Do not play this course. The golfers are very unprofessional and rude. I have lived in my house 30 years and have attended my church located across the road from the golf course for 20 years. We were there long before the course was.

Over the last two years the golf course has allowed those that golf to hit towards our church, and have bust two windshields out of cars parked in our parking lot behind the golfers and across the road. We are in the opposite direction of the course.

The first vehicle damaged was our church van, it completely shattered the glass. The other Vehicle was my car. Both times the golf ball was laying either near by or as with my car, on the hood near the wiper.

When contacted the golf course refuses to do anything. Of course that did not stop them from calling us when they had some damager to their property and they were seeking our help to see if we had seen anything going on at the course.

If we were in line or on the same side of the road as the course I might could understand, however we are not and for the ball to come toward the chruch the golfer had to aim towards the church.

I would not golf where players are so unprofessional. I have tried contact the golf course and they have yet to respond. This posting will appear on any website that ask for recommendation for Ruggles Ferry Golf Club

Pretty and challenging

Corse overall is well maintained. Some farways narrow some wide open. Key to this corse is keep it in the short grass and take time to read the greens. One can three put depending on the placement of the pin in a hurry from 3 ft out. Its not that bad to walk. Does have some challenging hills. Course management a key here. There is trouble short and long on a lot of greens. Make sure you're set up well for your shot to the green. If managed well you can have a chance to drop a lot of shots.
