Fairfield Glade Community Club hosts five golf courses for its retirement community, and the Stonehenge layout is traditionally hailed as its best. Although the course plays less than 6,600 yards from its tips, it cannot be said that Joe Lee intended for those yards to be mild.
Playing along with the slopes of the Cumberland Plateau, the signature par three 14th drops significantly from tee to green, crossing a blanket of exposed rock before arriving at the built-up putting surface. Lick Creek adds both visual wonder and intimidation to the shot. The exposed rock appears elsewhere and provides the namesake for the course.
The course hosts the Tennessee Senior State Open, among other events, on a yearly basis. A bunker renovation program from 2016-’17 means Stonehenge is hardly ancient history, however.
