Course Description:
The first two holes are tough opening par fours with sloped greens. Par par is a great start here.
The third plays as a par 3 ranging from 180-240 yards based on the tees. The green is two-tiered and another par here is a good start.
The next two holes are scoring holes, and might be the only scoring opportunities you'll see on the front. Both par 5's with tough green complexes and depending on the wind, a 3 is possible on these two.
The closing four holes on the front are brutal with difficult greens and pars are good on this front side. Set yourself up for the back.
The 10th is a 237 foot drop from tee to green and really shows the features of Gatlinburg. Par 4 is solid here too.
The 11th is a dogleg left par 4 that with a good wedge shot can easily set up a birdie.
The 12th is a dogleg right, tough par 4 that will challenge the precision of your approach game.
The 13th is a survival hole. From the backs 379 yards..... PAR 3! It drops close to 300 feet and is really fun to play. Par is the goal here.
The 14th is a reachable par 5 with a sloped green and a birdie here is key to making a run on the back.
The 15th features a tough par 4 with an approach shot you'll be sweating on. If you leave it short, it could come all the way back to your feet. Depending on the pin, par is really good.
The 16th is a tough par 4 measuring 560 yards from the back with a 250 foot drop from tee to green. Make par, good luck.
The 17th hole is a tough par 3 that you will want to escape from and run to the 18th tee with.
The final hole at Gatlinburg GC is a par 5 that can determine the tournament with a demanding green and decision making here is key.
