Excelent fairways greens bunkers
Excellent fairways, greens and bunkers. Rough has weeds but playable. Very beautiful scenic views all around from tee box to green. This course has it all for the money. Great value. Worth driving an hour for.

Great Course a bit far from Nashville
I played this course with a buddy on a great price from Golf Now. It has always been in great shape, the burgers are a must, my buddy and I usually bet a burger on the round, looser buys. A great experience, the only draw back is it's located in between Sparta and Smithville, with no easy way to get there faster than an hour and 30 minutes, unless you speed on Hwy 70, which I don't recommend, due to the number of speed traps, between Nashville and there. Great Course

great course for good players
I played from the senior tees. It was my first time so was at the mercy of the sloping landing areas and undulating greens which at times were huge, some with false fronts. Beautiful holes, many outstanding features such as several peninsula greens, one which required an approach over a creek canyon, onto a raised, bolder foundation. Lots of bunkers on fairways and around greens. In short, a great course. Definatly, RiverWatch is on my replay list.

A good Saturday
Course was in great shape. Moderately difficult, biggest difficulty would be some very awkward lies can be found if not in the center of fairway. Some holes are fairly sloped even if you find the center. Keeps you interested in planning your shots, not just blasting it as long as you can.

Not quite as good as it was
I played here 6 or 8 times the first 2-3 years it was open and it was superb. It appears ownership cannot afford to keep it at that level. Greens were spotty and in fairways I was often hitting off of minimal grass and hardpacked soil. Few visible yardage guides. Course is still fun to play and hopefully conditions will improve again.

Make sure you have a bag of balls available
This course is quite challenging to the average golfer. Definitely a mountain course and if off the hole, your ball is probably gone as it drops off on both sides on most holes. Because of this, there are quite a few golfers looking for a ball(s) on every hole and the pace slows down quickly. Even during the week, you are looking a 4+ hour round.

I am surprised the course was built in 2000? The course has not progressed as far as I would have thought. The fairways, although green, need a lot of week kill to get the grass to come in better and get thicker. I would not hesitate to pay the course again. Additionally, there was some thought about a "stay and pay" but too has not moved forward.
