Avalon Golf & Country Club
Rain soaked and aerated greens.
It's normally a fine course but due to the recent amount of rain and the greens being aerated it was a mess. My opinion is that it should not have been open.

Great and interesting course.
This course sits on rolling and some very low land. The previous night had very heavy rainfall. Although we enjoyed the course and our treatment from the staff, cart trail only being necessary because of the very wet conditions made our day a little less enjoyable. We look forward to playing this course with better playing conditions. We appreciate a course this nice allowing four retired seniors to play with a reduced rate.

very fast greens
for the time of year we played, temp was 42 degees, the greens were excellent. for the amount of undulation they have and the spped, it is very challanging. the course itself is pretty hilly leaving you with some drastic elevation changes.

I like the variations of holes, challenging but not too tough. The day I played it was exceptionally wet, cart path only, and standing water in many places/fairways. The greens were sneeky quick with a lot of turn, although they were also a little bumpy from ball marks (probably due to the wet conditions recently).

Beautiful views and fast greens
For under $30 this is the best course I've played in a looong time. Made the terrible mistake of playing in 35 degree weather, but the staff was so nice they gave me a voucher for the back nine when I come back. Greens were super fast and the bunkers are well placed and challenging.

Nice course, as usual. Played in mid/late November. Variety of holes adds to the experience.
Course was in nice shape for this time of year -- Nov. 21st.
I'm sure the greenskeeping staff knows they need to add some sand to the bunkers in early spring.

Love this course, great layout, challenging but fair. Staff not really very friendly from the proshop to the grill.
Love this course, great layout,challenging but fair. Staff not really friendly, could use some additional customer service training.

Golf course maintenance has declined considerably. Bunkers are unplayable (no sand, Rocks). Tees and greens are pretty beat-up. With a price point simmilar to Willow Creek and Rarity Pointe near by, I would avoid Avalon.

Good layout and greens are in good shape overall.
All greens but one were in really good shape and held shots well. Fairways were good for this time of year. There are several elevated tee boxes that offered fantastic views of the landscape and I would recommend the course for future play. I will definitely be coming back!

Great course, Staff were friendly and helpfull
Good seperation from diffrent tee boxes. Excelent Fairways and
Bunkers. Had alot of rain night before tee time, good drainage.
The greens were still rolling good even though they were air-
rated, They have nice undulations and you need to hit your
approch shot in the correct area for a good chance at Birdie.
We are looking forward to the next chance we get to play again, And would recomend to anyone to play here.

Not a high end course
Good greens make or break a course. These showed some pretty bad wear in several spots. Driving range is too small and beaten up pretty bad. Putting green is extremely sloped so I didn't feel it would reflect the speed of the greens on the course. Not close enough to clubhouse on the turn that you would stop for anything. Course is laid out nice but it is not up to par with the better courses in this area.

Up, Up and UP....
Avalon is a course located in a large housing development on the west side of Knoxville. It was developed by the Landmark Corporation and bares some similarities to other Landmark properties I have played... mainly in California. This track is really cut into, over and around the Tennessee mountains. It requires more club than the yardage calls for because of a large number of uphill shots. (It reminded me of the stories I heard from my parents about having to walk to school and home...up hill both ways!!) One area of concern is that the bent grass greens were heavily stressed. They need some help. Regardless, if you get a Golf Now hot deal....its worth it!

Overall a great course just needs a little work on greens
Staff is friendly, Grill is great. Some of the greens are pretty rough. Sparce grass. Other than that the rest of the course was in good shape

We thoroughly enjoyed our round at Avalon. The course was in great condition, especially the fairways. The rough although only 2-4 in bermuda played extremely tough. Staff were extremely friendly and courteous. Can't wait to play there again!
