Bent Creek Golf Course, designed by three-time Masters and British Open Championship Winner Gary Player, is a par 72 course that has been popular since the sunny day it opened back in 1972. The front nine hugs the valley floor while the back nine offers a challenging mountain course. A beautiful sparkling mountain stream meanders throughout the entire course making for a breathtaking contrast between water and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Southern Living Travel Guide rated Bent Creek Golf Resort one of the “Top Fifty Golf Courses in the South.” This course is all at once challenging and relaxing.

At its inception, Patriot Hills was intended to be more challenging than its sister course (Dandridge). With a similar design, the course has proved to be as tough as you want it to be. The par 72 course measures 6,710 yards from the back tees, 6,068 yards from the regular tees, 5,609 yards from the senior tees, and 4,974 yards from the forward tees.
The original 18 holes, designed by Dan Maples, meanders its way through valleys, hills, and woodlands. Then, in 1991, nine more holes were added with the same characteristics or the original design, bringing the area’s first 27 hole golf complex. And if the course itself doesn’t offer enough scenic beauty, you will often find yourself pausing to admire the views of the Great Smokey Mountains and Douglas Lake. Dandridge offers the same lush Bermuda fairways and bent grass green as its sister course (Patriot Hills).
