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.
Opened in 1994 by the City of Sevierville, Eagle’s Landing Golf Club has since been recognized as one of the top public courses in Tennessee, received a 4-star rating by Golf Digest, and was nominated for the “Best Public Course” award by Golf Digest in 1995. Eagle’s Landing is an 18-hole, par 72 golf course, and offers golfers different sets of tees to intensify the challenge. This course provides some of the most spectacular views of the Smoky Mountains.
The fairways are tree lined, somewhat narrow, and defined by a standard cut of rough. The course was designed by DeVictor and Melnyk and built on rolling terrain with water hazards that come into play on almost every hole. The average-sized greens are slightly sloped and have medium speed. This course has hosted several championship events in its short life so far, and we can only expect great things to come. Also on the site are a driving range, pitching area, and a putting green. Tee times are recommended at this popular course, as well as collared shirts, no cut-offs, but denim is acceptable.
In 2008 the course was reshaped and 18 new holes were added, as Highlands Course. The entire club was renamed to Sevierville Golf Club – now with two highly rated courses.
