Rivaled in beauty, only by The Great Smoky National Park, the views available from every hole are reminiscent of Laurel Valley's ridge-side neighbor ... Cades Cove. This challenging, yet playable, eighteen-hole regulation course, was designed by Edmund B. Ault, ASGCA, and features Bent Grass greens and Bermuda fairways. Changing elevation, meandering creeks, towering mountains, and an abundance of wildlife are at every turn. Although it is located inside a gated community, Laurel Valley Golf Course is open to public play and events, and offers practice areas, rental clubs, bar, & 19th Hole.

Disappointed to go there on a pretty day. Granted it is winter in Laurel Valley/Townsend area but never heard of a golf course closing! They need an answer machine on the phone line to advise! Other golf courses in the are are open for business...More

Our traveling group played today. First off, there is no driving range...just a couple of nets. Secondly, no food service...at least at 10 o'clock on weekdays. The course is on the short side, pretty in a nice valley, and has a number of interesting holes....More

The fairways are in very bad shape. Find a few weeds on which to place your ball. They were aerating as I was playing. It looked better when I played a few years ago.

Nice natural golf course, quite, pleasant and unrushed. Enjoyed nice day and good play. We saw deer on the course as well as turkey. Fellow players were very friendly and chatted.

Course was very enjoyable with its share of blind shots, challenging greens and rolling fairways. I would have rated higher except for condition of bunkers which were in rough shape however they were in the process of being repaired. Terrific scenery and friendly staff were...More
