Cummings Cove Golf & Country Club
Slow Play killed it today!
Played this course many times, my favorite local. This time of year tee boxes are not in the greatest shape. Greens, fairways, rough all played like normal.
Biggest complaint: If you have a guy standing in the fairway ALL DAY LONG, please let him play through. Totally ridiculous on the course today. A ranger would have been a welcome sight on this day. Played the entire front 9 behind a group of two (almost a 2 hour 9 and I was a single)!!! Here's another hint, if you can't drive over 200 yards, don't play from the tips! Go to the whites and be done with it, you are only aggravating yourself and everyone behind you.
Sorry, this review is more about golf etiquette then the course, but I've reviewed this course before and it is still a tremendous track in my opinion. Views are amazing, greens are 8/10, fairways 8/10, tee boxes 6/10 (seasonal thing).

I've played a lot of courses in the Northeast TN area, but this is the first time I've played here. In terms of the overall experience, this ranks as #1 for me.
The only negative I have is that the course was hard to find because something has happened with the way it comes up on the GPS. That's not the fault of the course, I know. Make sure to drive past the left turn that is a dead end for a mile or so and look for the billboard on the right that indicates the left turn.
I missed my tee time because I couldn't find the course, but the staff was great to fit me in. I got paired up with someone who didn't have a tee time. This place is busy, so I don't recommend just showing up. There is no driving range, but they have very nice warm up nets with balls provided for free.
The course is absolutely beautiful. The fairways are tight, but they are like carpet. The course is short, but the hazards are well laid out and there are many doglegs so that it doesn't play short. The fairways are also narrow. There's plenty of water, sand, undulations in the fairways, etc. The greens were very fast and tricky, which also makes up for the short course.
One comment: I'm noticing more and more greens lately where players don't repair their ball marks. If you're one of those people, start being more considerate of the golf course and other players.
Water, ice and bathrooms are available every few holes. The water is the best tasting I've ever gotten on a golf course.
This is a 5 star course...don't miss it.

Even with mother nature being bipolar with the weather the previous week, 80 degrees on Wednesday and 5 inches of snow on Friday, the course was in excellent shape. Greens were smooth and fast and the fairways were plush.

A wonderful golfing experience
From the very start my experience was nothing short of great. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The course was in very good shape, with the exception of the sand traps because of the recent rain. The tee boxes, fairways, greens and cart paths were in very good condition. The holes had a good mixture of straight, doglegs, uphills and downhills. We experienced some delays but that was good because it gave us more time to enjoy the scenery, which was fantastic. I will definitely return for another round.

We enjoyed every hole. There was lots of variety and great views and it was well landscaped and beautiful with fall color!

Fair and Challenging
Small greens, blind tee shots and speedy greens make for an excellent test of your golf skills! Elevated greens give the player more to think about when the views are distraction enough. Two par fives at 17 and 18 give you a chance to lower your score to keep you coming back. I'll definitely play here again! Thanks for a great round Cummings Cove!
