Designed and built in the early 1970s, this 18-hole course and its accompanying resort amenities are a scenic destination for anyone looking to relax playing golf in the Smokies. Located 40 miles east of Knoxville on a Douglas Lake peninsula, the par-71, 6,700-yard course itself provides golfers with a test of their skills and patience, yet it also gives them the opportunity to score well on each hole. The landscape consists of Bermuda fairways, large bent grass greens and four tee positions on each hole to accommodate any handicap. Rolling hills, challenging bunkers, lakes and streams all come together to challenge golfers while at the same time providing captivating scenery.
Baneberry Golf & Resort's green fees start at $15 for golfers not staying at the resort, and carts cost an additional $15 per 18 holes. The course's flexible scheduling can often allows golfers to squeeze in a second round if they desire. Amenities include a driving range, putting greens and a short-game practice area. Accommodations and additional amenities are available at The Inn at Baneberry.
