Jefferson County is rapidly becoming synonymous with great golf. As one of the first golf courses built in the area, Dandridge Golf & Country Club has developed a reputation as an enjoyable round of golf for the beginner or the seasoned professional. The original 18 holes, designed by Dan Maples, meanders its way through valleys, hills, and woodlands. Then, in 1991, nine more holes were added with the same characteristics or the original design, bringing the area's first 27 hole golf complex. And if the course itself doesn't offer enough scenice beauty, you will often find yourself pausing to admire the views of the Great Smokey Mountains and Douglas Lake. Dandridge offers the same lush bermuda fairways and bentgrass green as it's sister course (Patriot Hills).
