RiverWatch Golf Club
Best kept secret in Tennessee
I could not have anticipated that I would come across a golf course like this in Sparta. The course offers and great track and truly enjoyed playing. Try it you will most likely be impressed too.

Can't say I've played very many 5:40hrs rounds but for a 65 degree winter day the complaints are minimum. This course is beautiful and challenging for whatever skill you are but this day the greens were rather soft which made for bumpy greens. We also got backed up at the turn bc only 1 person was working bar and grill (35 minute wait).... Busy day pretty much caused the only problems here. Middle of the week this spring and I'll be here.

good design but very tight
I enjoyed my round at Riverwatch. The course was very difficult because of the tightness of the fairways and all of the hazards and out of bounds around the greens.

Beautiful Course. Tough Holes
I'd like to start this by saying I'm not the best golfer in the world. I have 7.6 Handicap Index. I typically shoot somewhere between 8 - 14 over par from the White Tees but will occasionally play the longest and those are part of my index as well.. This course is absolutely beautiful. Some of the prettiest golf in the Middle TN area. Most holes have bunkers and or water somewhere near the greens. The front 9 is quite a bit easier to play. The fairways are wider and much more forgiving. I love playing the front as it's challenging but manageable. The back 9 is a different story
Holes 10 - 18 can be brutal if you are not on point with not only your drives but also your irons. The fairways squeeze in quite a bit and it has woods basically on every hole. Number 13 is one of the most picturesque holes you can find with a huge rock wall and stream running in front of the green which is playing up hill. It's definitely a must see and play hole.
I've been out to the course 3 times as it is just a few miles from my hometown. 1 time we were rained out about 4 holes in. 2nd time the weather was great. This last time it rained a little over an inch the night before. Each time, however, it has been a joy to play. It's by far the best course in the Upper Cumberland area. (That's counting the courses in Sparta & Cookeville, TN)
I've only been playing for 2 months and played a little over 20 rounds. Every time that I'm feeling good about my game I go out to RiverWatch and quickly and reminded how much I need to improve to play a course like this well.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND playing the course. Beautiful scenery. Very clean club house. Great golf carts and the fairways and greens are fantastic.

The best deal around.
This is a PGA level course. Clearly it has seen better days. I bought a deal and when I drove up I thought I was going to be playing in a cow pasture.. BOY WAS I MISTAKEN. This course is a gem. Hilly, tough, great greens, beautiful holes. With a little money invested, this would be better than the Hermitage. Hands down, its the best golf deal around.

Great value - worth the drive
This course will challenge your driving accuracy. Course is challenging but fair. Lots of elevation change. Great fun.
