Formerly known as River Islands, Island Pointe Golf Club has maintained the features that gave the course its original moniker. The clubhouse sits on the north bank of the French Broad River, and after two holes in that vicinity, players will take a long bridge to an island in the river for the third hole.
Arthur Hills shows his true wild side on the par three No. 4, however, as players tee off from the first island to a green that sits on a second island (and, theoretically, if a player were to lay up to the front tees, they would hit from three separate islands during the hole).
Players finally arrive at the South shore of the river for the bulk of the round before making their way back to the clubhouse by stopping once more at the same islands. This Knoxville-area public track is officially located in Kodak, Tennessee, and the adventurous trip from tee-to-green will deliver moments that live up to the town’s name.
