Best Municipal Golf Course in all 50 States – Golf Digest
With all the majestic beauty surrounding you when you visit the Smokies, it is no wonder that people choose to come to the area to spend some time on a golf course. The majestic sweep of the mountains draw the eye to the beautiful shapes of the golf courses in the area. One of those courses that has been bringing people and clubs to spend some time outdoors is the Gatlinburg Golf Course.
Now, first things first, this golf course is not in Gatlinburg but it is the municipal golf course for the city of Gatlinburg and the only golf course in Pigeon Forge. If you have been coming to the area for a long time you know that the Gatlinburg Golf Course is located on Dollywood Lane which goes to the old entrance to Dollywood. Get on the Parkway in Pigeon Forge and find traffic light 8. Turn onto Veterans Boulevard and head up the hill away from the Parkway. When you come to the next traffic light on Veterans, turn right. You will be beside the golf course at this point. The next drive way on the right is the entrance to the Gatlinburg Golf Course. Make your tee time reservation before time and as you turn in check out the natural beauty of the area.
The course itself is built into the natural landscape of the foothills of the Smokies. And this is the reason why people love this golf course. It has been renovated twice since it was opened and it provides challenging holes ranging in length and difficulty. All told, this is a 6,281 yard course. One of the signature holes has become known as Sky Hi. This hole is only 194 yards in length, but it drops 200 feet from the tee to the green. Even the most seasoned veteran golfer is going to find the joy and fun in trying to place the ball on the green from that dramatic drop in height.
