Recognized as one of the top public courses in Tennessee, this course was opened in 1994 by the City of Sevierville as Eagle’s Landing Golf Club, an 18-hole, par 72 golf course offering golfers different sets of tees to intensify the challenge. It received a 4-star rating by Golf Digest, and was nominated for the “Best Public Course” award by Golf Digest in 1995. The course provides some of the most spectacular views of the Smoky Mountains, and is suitable for all levels of play.
In 2008 the course was reshaped and 18 new holes were added. The entire club was renamed to Sevierville Golf Club – now with two highly rated, 18-hole championship courses. The Highlands course is a par 70 winding through rolling hills and fresh water mountain ponds. The River is a par 72 that plays along and across the Little Pigeon River. The club also offers a 9-hole play running along the front side of the Highlands course, which is fun for all skill levels.
The fairways are tree lined, somewhat narrow, and defined by a standard cut of rough. The original 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. Also on the site are a driving range, chipping area, and a putting green. Tee times are recommended at this popular course, as well as suitable golf attire: collared shirts, hemmed shorts – no cut-offs but denim is acceptable.
The clubhouse offers superb views of the mountains, the river and the golf course, and has a bar and restaurant with great food at reasonable prices. Sevierville Golf Club has a full service pro shop.
