For views of some of the most spectacular scenery in all of the United States, golf lovers from near and far will want to play a round on the great area courses near your Gatlinburg cabin rental or Pigeon Forge cabin rental.
Baneberry is a public course built on gently rolling terrain and features streams, ponds, and grass mounds that come into play on several holes. Built in 1972, the Baneberry course was designed by Bob Thompson with bent grass greens and Bermuda grass fairways. Most of the greens have been renovated throughout this tight course. The signature hole is #11, a 428-yard, par 4, requiring a tee shot up a dogleg left fairway, then an approach shot to a green that is well protected by trees and sand bunkers. The club hosted the T. C. Jordan Tournament Classic in 1991 and 1992. Baneberry Golf & Resort offers a quiet, relaxing setting by Douglas Lake.
As of July 2005, the weekday prices are $14 green fee with $13 for a cart, and on weekends are $17 green fee with $13 for the cart.
