Tennessee

By Mark Boehler For Pickwick Profiles

PICKWICK, Tenn. â “ Visitors to the Pickwick Lake should pack their golf bags when planning a trip to the area.

 

Pickwick Landing State Park

Golf Course

A true destination course as part of the Tennessee Golf Trail, this par 72 challenge offers 6,478 yards over 18 holes.

Over 20,000 played the course near Pickwick Landing Dam in 2013.

"All holes require good drives," said manager and golf pro Preston Maxey, as many fairways are narrow and tree-lined. "It's a good, challenging course."

Depending upon the tee, ratings range from 65.7 to 71.1 on the course located at the intersection of Highways 57 and 128.

Out of bounds guards 11 holes. There are 21 bunkers and three water hazards.

Hole no. 2 is a 396-yard signature dogleg right par 4 with out of bounds protecting the right side.

Maxey said the toughest hole is no. 14, another dogleg right with water to the right.

Tee times are required. It's best to call ahead as much as possible, especially for weekend play, due to the closure of nearby Shiloh Falls Golf Course.

The course is open year round. Amenities include club rental, practice green, driving range, snack bar and nearby lodging at the park inn.

Pickwick is also part of the Tennessee Golf Trail, where an annual fee allows golfers unlimited playtime at nine state parks across Tennessee.

Fox Chase Golf Course

Located on Highway 57 in Counce, this 9-hole public course is a par 36 with 3,080 yards off the back tees.

Visitors are welcome, locals love it and the course is great for novice and beginning golfers.

The rates are very reasonable and the course offers a variety of smaller and sloped greens.

Water hazards come into play on three holes, including the no. 4 par three which includes a two-tier green.

The 150-yard, par 3 no. 7 hole has an elevated tee with a scenic view.

Fox Chase has a practice green, driving range and pro shop.
