Reviews for Tennessee National

Av. Reviewers Score:
Description: Laid out within a bend in the meandering Tennessee River, the course at Tennessee National Golf Club is a modern Greg Norman Signature layout where the waterside par three 12th hole is the undoubted star of the golfing show. Rating: 4 out of 6 Reviews: 1

This is a pretty good Norman design set about 30 miles outside of Knoxville in a bend of the Tennessee river. The land is pretty flat but there are a couple of sharp elevation changes that add interest to the course. The greens are fair and not very severely sloped sloped. Like many Norman design courses there are a number of chipping options around the greens. Several holes have nice driving lines and options to go over or around bunkers depending on the tee set that you have chosen to play.. I have several holes I really like. The 2nd is a fairly short risk/reward par 5. A properly placed drive down the righr side of the fairway opens up the approach to a green protected by deep bunkers and sharp slopes. Nice hole. I also like 15, a fairly short par 4 which requires a precise drive and an approach to a narrow green protected by a deep front bunkers. Even though the course runs right along the river the water really only comes into play on the short par three 17th. Overall this a pretty good design that probably could have been great had the designers been given a free run of the property instead of deferring to home site considerations. Still this is a nice course I enjoy playing both for fun and in medal competitions.
