This picturesque mountain course is the creation of architect Dan Maples. Perhaps better known for his work in North Carolina, Maples created a Tennessee gem that is regarded as one of Tennessee's premier public courses. The greens are undulating, and the tree-lined fairways demand accuracy off the tee.

Maples was chosen not only for his reputation as a fine designer, but for the genuine feel he had for a tract of land and the extra personal time he spent on the site molding his design into reality. It all shows in hole such as the 393-yard 14th.
