Reviewed September 29, 2020

This course has went downhill in eight years. Maintenance issues are all over the course with lots of erosion. The worst part of this course is the customer service. Their policy is if you don’t like it, go somewhere else! They are the only course I have ever been to that closes down before sunset. It may be 30 min before or two hours just depends how early the state employees want to go home. They will tell you t times are full and not a golfer in sight. It’s obvious they don’t care about customers because Tennessee tax payers are gonna pay their check regardless. I expect this course to close soon they can’t keep losing tax payers money and running away paying customers.
