  • We come to Bent Creek golf course two sometimes three times a year for vacation. Sometimes we stop on our way back from our Florida vacation and rest up for our final trip home. It is nice and quiet.....  more »
  • Located just just over 7 miles outside of Gatlinburg, the buildings have log exteriors, well-appointed and spotless suites and great amenities; indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a children’s area...  more »
  • Looks like at one time it was a fantastic course. The layout is one of the best but the greens need some definite help. I’ve never seen greens so covered in weeds! With decent greens this would be a go-to place for golf in the Gatlinburg area as it’s only 20 minutes from downtown. Have played here the past two years as it’s affordable and never anyone there. Can get in 18 holes in a cart as a single in under 2:45. As a 5 handicap who plays about 70 rounds of golf a year all over the mid-west please take my advice, just put a little more attention toward the greens and let people know that you are and THEY WILL COME!
  • It was a nice course! Unfortunately had to leave after 9 holes because there was a huge group of people clustered so I just left. I didn’t get to play the back which I was bummed about being I’m 6 hours away and this was a vacation planned thing.
