Located in Dandridge, Tennessee-the state's second-oldest community-this golf course in the Smokies is one of the first built in the area and has since developed a reputation for providing an enjoyable golf experience for golfers of all experience levels. The original 18 holes work their way through valleys, hills and woodlands, and an additional nine holes were added in 1991. The Bermuda fairways and bent grass greens are a lush complement to the accompanying scenery, which includes the distant Great Smoky Mountains and nearby Douglas Lake. All 18-whole combinations are par 72 and range in distance from 4,900 yards to 6,100 yards.
Dandridge Golf & Country Club offers a pro shop and golf lessons for its customers, and fees range from $28 to $36 for 18 holes, depending on day of the week and age of the player. The course lies a short distance off Interstate 40 and is accessible from Exit 417. It is approximately a 35-minute drive from Sevierville and Pigeon Forge.
