Gatlinburg Golf Course
520 Dollywood Ln,
Pigeon Forge, TN 37863
“Gatlinburg Golf Course is open year-round with modern facilities, fully equipped pro shop and food services area. This beautiful 18-hole course was designed by noted golf course architect William Langford. In 1993 and again in 2007, it underwent major renovations by Bob Cupp & Associates of Atlanta.
Today, the completely rebuilt greens and reworked fairways are better than ever. The course offers the well-seasoned golfer as well as the beginner a challenge on every hole, while its scenic beauty is unsurpassed. The course has been acclaimed as one of the most picturesque courses in America with breathtaking views of the Great Smoky Mountains. Located just five miles from downtown Gatlinburg, the course lies adjacent to Dollywood.
Convention and group outings are welcome. Call us – we’ll have a tee time waiting for you! Play our legendary #12, affectionately known as “Sky Hi.” It’s 194 yards in length and drops 200 feet, tee to green, making it one of the most dramatic holes in the country. The #3, 529-yard par 5 we call “Long Lane,” and for good reason! And #17, a 231-yard par 3, offers little in the way of forgiveness.
All together, it’s 6,281 yards of challenge and fun.
