I went to the Masters this year for the first time and have had the golf "itch" ever since. What are everyone's favorite courses to play?
Gatlinburg Golf Course. Just a really fun course to play. I like River Island as well but it's just not in the same shape it was 5yrs ago. They also changed the type of grass they use for their greens after they lost them 3-4 yrs ago after a Hooter's tourney, they've not been right since. But that's JMO?
Jeter is in Nashville, so are you looking for Midstate courses only? Tennessee? Anywhere?
Your team. All the time.
I am looking for courses in Tennessee or within a few hours driving distance from Nashville. I normally play at Forrest Crossing in Franklin because it is cheap and easy to get a tee time. The rounds are starting to take 5 hours to play so I am looking elsewhere.

I enjoyed the Hermitage courses the couple times I played them. Not sure about price or pace of play because I played them in scrambles.
My favorite public courses in the Nashville area are Greystone and Hermitage. Forrest Crossing is fun but it does get very crowded and isn't always in the greatest shape. Haven't played Kings Creek but heard it was OK.
Not in Tennessee but have to say pacific dunes in bandon, or as I live outside of Portland .... Always rips me a new one but I still love it.
I've heard very good things about Greystone. I'm going to have to get out there in the next few weeks.
Kings Creek in decent but I haven't played out there in a few years.
Buffalo valley in unicoi tn , it's not the best maintained , but man it's fun to play, it's a mountain course with some awesome tee box locations.
Haven't played Kings Creek this year, but last year it was in better shape than in the previous few years. Think it's pretty challenging, too. Usually have some good Groupon deals for weekdays/weekends after 3.
When i was in school in Knoxville we used to drive down to Crossville a couple of times a year to play the bear trace course. Always a pretty good time and affordable even for a college student.
For the money....
Gaylord springs twilight deal
If money is not a big deal....presidents reserve at hermitage.
Old stone in ky is sweet if you rent a condo....its tough tho and limited bc private
Rtj courses in nw alabama is great...2-2.5 hours max to muscle shoals

Buffalo is a neat place to play. The #17 is an awesome hole. Pitching wedge shot from there.
King's creek is a pretty good golf course but I haven't played it in the past few years. Call me a traditionalist, but I love to play at Henry Horton State Park. Their golf course is just beautiful. It's a little pricey but if you go for twilight rates, I don't think it's too bad. Worth every penny though, IMO.
I was used to playing the flat courses in the charleston sc area, so the first time I played buffalo valley it blew my mind.
There are some amazing courses in charleston, and on Kiawah island , I had a hook up down there and I could play almost any course in the area for 25 dollars, including most if the ones on Kiawah, the ocean course being the exception
My brother and I went to Bandon for 5 days last Labor Day. I've been fortunate to play a lot of great courses, and had a memorable trip to Scotland and played Turnberry, Carnoustie, the Old Course, Prestwick. I live at Sawgrass where they just played the Players Championship. Bandon's parade of courses is the most spectacular golf I have ever seen anywhere, period. I'll bet those days surrounding the Oregon game in September are already filled up with Tennessee fans making the pilgrimage. I hope they enjoy the game as much as Bandon, but I doubt they will. And I mean even if we should upset the Ducks.
Most of these courses in East TN, that everyone is mentioning, you can book through golfnow.com. I don't know if any of you guys ever use it but sometimes you can get some really crazy deals. I also have noticed they've added some more courses. Anyway just a thought for you JeterVol and everyone else.
I've always heard Crocketts Ridge is an awesome course, just never have got up there to play it.......yet! Wataugavol, since it sounds like you know a little about the Tri-cities area courses, do you know anything about the course that is on HWY 25 right as you get into Kingsport? I can't recall the name of the course other than I know it has pines or twin pines in the name. I've passed it a hundred times going to visit relatives and from the road it looks pretty good but you know how that goes. Anyway just wondering
