A great course that is off the beaten path. There have been times when I have driven down a long stretch of interstate and said to myself, "Wouldnt it be great to take a piece of land and build a golf course on these rolling hills." Well, White Oaks is such a place. This course is well off the beaten path with farm land all around. But once you start to play the course, there are some beautiful holes and a good golf challenge. Most of the holes have wide fairways but a few are slotted between tress and hills. There are two streams and some ponds to capture wayward shots. There are quite a few blind tee shots and plenty of elevation changes. One hole, the par 3 8th, is 213 yards long with a 60-80 foot drop. The course is by in large a wonderful challenge with beautiful, natural scenery. The greens are very gently sloping and very slow. It may take you a few holes to zero in on the speed. The fairways have a variety of grasses and the rough will definitely gobble up your ball. For the price (I paid $20 with cart mid week) this is a course worth visiting.
Early this year, 2014, they replaced their greens and changed from bent grass to Diamond Zoysia grass and they are in fantastic shape!!! This is now definitely one of the top 2-3 courses in all of this area!! Highly recommend!!!
I played there on the way to the airport and really enjoyed the course!
Best golf course and owner in tn no doubt. By far best greens around
Nice course but needed to clean grass clippings
