Great course. You are almost on an island on Tim's Ford Lake. The water should come into play more. The greens are wonderful, big, multi-level greens and Florida fast. A lot of people are not accustom to such quick greens in this area. They are Championship Bermuda greens. Can loose balls quickly if not a decent golfer. Lots of sand traps but some need maintenance and more sand. The rough and overall grass is very nice and lush. Irrigation and water is not a problem here because the fairways are nice and cut low "pro style" with no wild grass growing in fairways. A good stock in the club house and a decent food menu. Great views and a must play in Tennessee. There is not a better course around that area than the Bears Trace

I was very disappointed in the green maint and condition of the course overall. for $52 (green fees, cart, small bucket) I could have played at any of the near by courses for half the price and would of had greens to putt on.
