Description:

Rivaled in beauty, only by The Great Smoky National Park, the views...

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.

Planned a spring vacation around playing this course to find out its CLOSED. Our Innkeeper believed the course was being sold off in lots.. We learned it could reopen on May 1st as a golf course.. but who knows. Disappointing, could of used their website to warn people.

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 as usual!

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. On the downside, it is in pretty rough shape....no irrigation other than greens, so fairways... More

My husband and I played at Laurel Valley Golf Course while on vacation in June. We have played this course many times and love it. It's a nice golf course with beautiful mountain views. You might even see a Beer, Deer or Turkey on the golf course. We have before. I thought the tee boxes, greens and fairway was in... 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.

This is the first golf course that I had played in East Tennessee. It's a really nice golf course in Townsend. It's really pretty and so quiet. No city noise to deal with. The greens,fairways and tee boxes were in great shape. We played here Sunday April 10,2016. The mountain views are very pretty. We saw Turkey and Deer on... More

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.

We played this course in August 2015. The tee boxes were in great shape and so were the fairways and greens. The views alone are worth the cost. My husband just recently bought a complete set of Taylor Made Golf Clubs and Aero Burner driver and he was dying to play Laurel Valley. It was a very nice day in... More

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 an additional plus. On the first tee just take a deep breath, enjoy the views... More
