Celebrated course architects Peter Jacobsen, Jim Hardy, and Jerry Lemons sculpted RiverWatch Golf Club’s course through natural tributaries leading to the crystalline waters of Center Hill Lake. Wide zoysia fairways rise and fall through the densely forested terrain, creating natural doglegs that bend around large earthen swells and ponds. Water comes into play on seven holes, making accuracy more important than hitting long drives or unlocking the scorecard’s treasure map to a lower handicap.
Course at a Glance:
Meadows of wildflowers and towering trees border the Caney Fork River on both sides, providing a refuge for deer, herons, turkeys, and hundreds of other bird species. With a fleet of canoes and kayaks as well as shuttle service straight to the riverbanks, Canoe the Caney makes it easy to explore this river’s natural beauty. Though the current bustles along at a slow and steady pace and the banks are usually 30 yards apart, Canoe the Caney staff still holds safety as its highest priority. The staff provides everyone with life jackets and review safety guidelines before giving paddlers permission to depart.
In addition to 6-mile and 9-mile trips down the river, Canoe the Caney also facilitates more playful adventures, including romantic picnic outings and a pirate adventure that invites paddlers to hunt for Captain JaBez’s long lost contact lens.
