When you think of visiting Gatlinburg, golfing might not immediately come to mind as an activity. But, there are some of the most picturesque golf courses in the entire world right in the heart of Gatlinburg! There can’t be anything more relaxing or refreshing than a few holes of golf nestled in the breathtaking blues and gorgeous greens of the Great Smoky Mountains!
Take a day and experience one of the championship golf courses that were designed especially for the mountain terrain of Gatlinburg! The manicured greens fit right into the verdant forest landscapes, framed perfectly by the mountains. And the price is always right, with many courses offering discounted games, along with vacation packages!
Perfect your swing along tranquil mountain streams at Bent Creek in Gatlinburg, TN designed by three time Masters and British Open Winner Gary Player. Bent Creek is a par 72 course that teases you with a fairly open front 9 and then puts you to the challenge on an exciting back 9 that features doglegs, uphill shots, enormous downhill shots onto greens, and opportunities for some extremely long drives. While you could easily walk the front 9, don’t even think about walking the back 9. Even the local high school players don’t attempt it! It’s as much fun to drive the golf cart from holes 13-15 as it is to play them! While they do not post their rates online, they do offer a $5 off coupon which you can print off at http://www.bentcreekgolfcourse.com/coupon.html . For rates & tee times, you can call them at (800) 251-9336 .
