Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are better known for having more than┬á30 Miniature Golf courses, but if your looking for the big stuff, the options are somewhat┬álimited –┬ábut they certainly are great options.┬á Even better, both are conveniently located to Elk Springs Resort, within 15-20 minutes and via routes with no traffic.

Bent Creek Golf Course is a Gary Player designed “Top 50 of the South” course.┬áWhile relatively short, plays very difficult with water coming into play on 13 of 18 holes.┬á The front 9 cuts through a valley and is “somewhat” easier than the distinctly different mountain terrain of the back 9.┬á With the mountain views and many holes cut right through the trees, just a tour of the course without playing┬áthe course would be worth the green and cart fee┬áin the fall.┬á The course offers a great variety of play and will constantly keep you challenged.┬á Playing a second time within 2-3 days is something you will want to do.┬á A summer rate┬áwith a cart is about $49, however,┬áa discount├é┬ácoupon can be found and printed online at Bent Creek‘s web site.┬áClick Here for driving directions to Bent┬áCreek Golf Course from Elk Springs Resort.

Some interesting news about a future course in Gatlinburg has been circulating.  Within 1 mile of Elk Springs Resort an LPGA course has been in the planning stages.  When the course will be delivered is still up in the air, but the general consensus with the locals is that it will be completed within the next 3 years.
