Patriot Hills Golf Club in Jefferson City, Tennessee, is actually the sister club to nearby Dandridge Golf & Country Club, giving players yet another choice of scenic golf courses near the Great Smoky Mountains. Generally, the course was designed to be a little more challenging than the Dandridge course. Yardage ranges from 4,974 to 6,710 depending on your choice of four tee placements. The par-72, Jerry Hodge-designed course combines Bermuda fairways and bent grass greens and gives players scenic views of English Mountain and the major peaks of the Smokies beyond. The course rating is 72.4, and the slope rating is 126.
Located off Exit 417 on Interstate 40, Patriot Hills Golf Club is only a 20-minute drive from Sevier County, home of Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Memberships are sold, but the course is also open to the public. Green fees range from $28 to $40, depending on age, time of day and day of week. Lessons are available from the club's PGA professionals.
