Originally sculpted into the Knoxville hillside in 1922 using teams of horses, slip scrapers, and dynamite, Pine Knolls Country Club's semiprivate course gently rises and falls across nine holes of rolling parkland terrain. The course still retains the same basic design of the prototype, featuring relatively open fairways and two ponds that come into play on four holes, placing a premium on confident strokes or 9-irons that double as snorkels. The country club also invites midsummer revelry with a swimming pool, a stately clubhouse with a full-service bar, and speedo-clad golf carts.

Dense tree lines and encroaching out-of-bounds areas form tunnels of narrow fairways at Oskaloosa Golf Course, which has stood as a verdant playground for golfers since 1920. Players must keep tight control over drivers and putters en route to conquering the course’s par of 72, highlighted by accessible par 5s and shorter par 3s with greens that are reachable from tee shots or by flattery whispered into fringe. At just 446 yards, the par 5 fifth hole forges a straight path between two straddling fairways, opening the door for eagles and birdies. This linear hole design is somewhat of a rarity, however, as half of the holes feature a dogleg turn of some degree. After putting and strutting through the labyrinth of undulating greens, golfers can retire and refuel at the new On the Green sports bar, restaurant and patio.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,382 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 70.6 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 123 from the back tees
  • Three sets of tees per hole:m]]

After selling his farm-equipment business in 1972, Dale W. Brady sought the counsel of his three sons to determine what should be done with the 200-acre plot of land originally used for testing out his new products. The three resolved to turn their land into a golf course. After a test green survived the winter and they earned the blessing of the region’s lawn-mower king, son Tom devised a layout from an aerial drawing and the team set to work, sculpting the rugged earth and opening the course in August 1973. A family-run enterprise ever since, the course bobs and weaves over 6,224 yards of rolling terrain that feature sparse tree lines, water hazards in play on five holes, and scenic views of the verdant landscape.

Since its relatively humble beginnings, Toad Valley Golf Course has grown to include a full-length driving range and the Field of Greens Mini Links, an 18-hole miniature-golf course that challenges players with realistic putting surfaces, including bunkers, water hazards, and contoured greens. The range’s grass tees offer practice on an organic surface similar to course conditions, and the putting surfaces emulate the tricky slopes of real greens and even include rough, sand traps, and water features that add to the scenery and allow putters to bob for wayward golf balls.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 71 course

  • Length of 6,224 yards from the farthest tees

  • Course rating of 69.1 from the farthest tees

  • Slope rating of 114 from the farthest tees

  • Four tee options

Since 1964, Terrace Hills Golf Course has invited golfers of all abilities to send balls soaring between the trees lining each of its 18 fairways. Though relatively short at 6,421 yards from the back tees, plenty of hazards lurk throughout the terrain, ready to spoil any oncomer's overconfidence. Water confronts play on eight of the holes, including holes 3, 4, 12, and 13, where a stream snakes its way through the course and enervates golfers by forcing them to play "Marco Polo" with lost balls. Terrace Hills promises golfers a free round on their next visit if their rounds take longer than 4.5 hours when they have tee times on weekdays before 2 p.m. and weekends or holidays.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 71 course

  • Total length of 6,421 yards from the back tees

  • Course rating of 68.8 from the back tees

  • Course slope of 116 from the back tees

  • Three sets of tees per hole

The course at Rolling Hills leads golfers out into an emerald oasis with well-maintained fairways that rise and fall over frequent elevation changes. Water is a prominent feature that comes into play on six of nine holes, including on the seventh tee, where golfers can reach the green 160 yards away by carrying their golf ball over the water and using their golf bag as a buoy to wade through it.

Along with its regulation-size par 36 course, Rolling Hills invites players to hone their short games on the nine-hole par 3 course, which features lights so play won’t be halted by dusk or hungry owls that mistake golf carts for chubby mice.

Course at a Glance:

  • Nine-hole, par 36 course
  • Total length of 2,885 yards from the back tees
  • Three sets of tees per hole
