Detailed description of Chattanooga Golf & Country Club

Chattanooga Golf & Country Club, is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Chattanooga Golf & Country Club first opened for play in 1896. The course layout as we know it today was designed by Donald Ross in 1920. The course was renovated in 2005 by Bill Bergin.

This historic course is the oldest course on its original site in Tennessee.  It was originally opened just eight years after the first golf club opened in the U.S.  The clubhouse sits on a bluff and overlooks the Tennessee River.  

The course has narrow fairways, and its greens are very fast and undulating.  The tributaries from the Tennessee River come into play on holes #1, 7, 8, and 9.  There are some elevated tee boxes on this scenic course.

Par for the course is 70. From the back tees the course plays to 6,392 yards. From the forward tees the course plays to a par-71 and measures 5,274 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 16, a par-5 that plays to 542 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 9, a par-3 that plays to 173 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 6, a 407 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 1, a 352 yard par-4.

Blue tees: par-70, 6,392 yards, 71.3 / 128
White tees: par-70, 6,071 yards, 69.5 / 122
Red tees: par-71, 5,274 yards, 71.5 / 123

Sitting on the Tennessee River, the Chattanooga Golf and Country Club is in an excellent location. The river views are spectacular, bringing its own relaxation factor into play. The course winds past some very luxurious homes and adds to the course's character. The layout is very challenging, especially for those that don't play well. The fairways were thin in spots but that did not take away from the playability of the course. The clubhouse is top notch and by far the most service oriented club I have ever visited. It is well worth playing if you ever have the chance.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again
