Don't let the name fool you; you won't find it in Gatlinburg. You'll actually find this golf course in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Can't explain that one, but we can tell you that the 18-hole course is an oasis in the middle of the city's tourism bustle. The layout consists of challenging, beautifully maintained holes and occupies a section of rolling woodlands that also treats its golfers to great views of the Great Smoky Mountains. In fact, Gatlinburg Municipal Golf Course underwent a half-million-dollar renovation in 2007, which involved rebuilding greens and reworking the fairways. The result: a rating as Tennessee's Best Muny Course in the August 2009 issue of Golf Digest and a challenge to a golfer's skills that is also easy on the eyes.

Overall, the course-originally designed by golf course architect William Langford-measures 6,281 yards. Highlights include the par-3 number 12, known as “Sky Hi,” which drops 200 feet in elevation from tee to green, and the 529-yard number three, also known as “Long Lane.” Facilities include a pro shop and a clubhouse with food-service area. Green fees start at $30 for nine holes and $40 for 18 holes. Rates increase according to time of day and season of the year. Tee times can be reserved up to two weeks in advance.
