Rivaled in beauty, only by The Great Smoky National Park, the views available from every hole are reminiscent of Laurel Valley's ridge-side neighbor ... Cades Cove. This challenging, yet playable, eighteen-hole regulation course, was designed by Edmund B. Ault, ASGCA, and features Bent Grass greens and Bermuda fairways. Changing elevation, meandering creeks, towering mountains, and an abundance of wildlife are at every turn. Although it is located inside a gated community, Laurel Valley Golf Course is open to public play and events, and offers practice areas, rental clubs, as well as full restaurant, bar, & 19th Hole.

Course was very enjoyable with its share of blind shots, challenging greens and rolling fairways. I would have rated higher except for condition of bunkers which were in rough shape however they were in the process of being repaired. Terrific scenery and friendly staff were an additional plus. On the first tee just take a deep breath, enjoy the views... More

First time golfing in smokey mtns. And i must say we picked a very beautiful golf course. We were treated very well upon arrival and efficiently got out to play. The previous days brought a deluge of rain to the area, but you would never know as the course drains very well. Course was enjoyable and not overly challenging, but... More

This golf course is a good mountain course to play. Provides a challenge to the golfer. It is somewhat difficult to find.

My husband wanted to play golf and it was a nice semi warm day. We played Thursday March 12th. The entire golf course was wet due to all the snow and rain earlier that week. We knew it would be wet, but we were leaving the next day and he really wanted to play golf in The Smokies. There was... More

(We played this golf course in June 2014) By far this has to be one of our favorite golf courses to play at. The greens are beautiful and it's really maintained very well. We also have played at Cobbly Nobb Golf Club and Sequoyah National Golf Club in Whittier,NC. We have decided Laurel Valley Golf Course would be our home... More

This is truly one of the most scenic courses with great views of the mountains, many changes of elevation and plenty of wildlife around. The course was in excellent condition, and my only reservation was the lack of a driving range.

Best value for the money on a mountain course! It's a local course but not on the scale like the Bent Creek course near Gatlinburg! I had trouble on some of the holes are very CURVY and NARROW. Placement of shots on these holes are critical. Other holes you can hit harder. Great scenery for the price! Hills and valleys... More

Great course, play it at every opportunity when in Tennessee. Every hole is unique and the course itself is different from another you will play, very scenic, XLNT value.

The course has been open for several months in 2014. The greens are in great shape and the fairways are catching up after some aeration. Recently I have seen a "drink girl" on course. Last week, during one round, I saw a groundhog, several turkeys and even a bear on the course - with a little noise the bear always... More
