University of the South students, staff (and members of the public) have enjoyed The Course at Sewanee for over 100 years and this highly regarded 9-hole layout re-opened in 2013 after a 2-year renovation by Gil Hanse.
I played Sewanee in May of 2018 on the same trip that we played Sweetens Cove. I enjoyed both courses but if I had to pick one, I'd give the slight edge to Sewanee. Gil Hanse did a fantastic job in making a really fun nine hole golf course which has different sets of tees to make a round of 18 feel like you are playing a different course at times which was really unique. The condition was very good for a course of this cost open to the public. The scenery was amazing and this course is a must stop on any golf trip in TN. You will really enjoy yourself.
