Gatlinburg Golf Course
520 Dollywood Lane
Pigeon Forge, TN
800.231.4128 or 865.453.3912
Voted the GolfDigest Best Municipal Golf Course in All 50 States, Gatlinburg Golf Course is a dream for both the seasoned pro and the beginner golfer. Immaculately manicured greens, challenging holes, modern facilities, and a fully equipped pro shop make this a great choice for teeing off. Golf course architect William Langford designed this gorgeous course that features 18 holes for a lovely day out. Bob Cupp & Associates of Atlanta renovated the course in 1993 and again in 2007, making even more improvements to this beautiful golf course. Blend the pristine course with the gorgeous Great Smoky Mountains, and you have an unmatched experience. The course is also located just 5 miles from downtown Gatlinburg and just across from Dollywood. After a morning of golf, you’ll have a short drive to the other great attractions in the area.
All of the holes at the Gatlinburg Golf Course are fun and challenging, but Sky Hi (#12) is 194 yards long and drops 200 feet – one of the most dramatic drops in the country! Long Lane (#3) is 529 yards, and #17 is a 231-yard par 3 that will test even the most seasoned golfers.
