This mountain course was cut out of the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains and is loaded with many scenic views. The fairways are wide open on the front nine and narrow on the back nine. The greens are slightly sloped and some of them are multi-tiered. The signature hole is #12, a 194-yard, par 3, because it features a 200-foot drop from off the mountain bluff tee box. Ellis Maples redesigned the course in 1974, followed by Bob Cupp in 1993. A collared shirt is required by the dress code.
