A paradise of more than 20,000 acres sprawled across the eastern top of the rugged Cumberland Plateau, Fall Creek Falls State Park is one of the most scenic and spectacular outdoor recreation areas in America.
Fall Creek Falls State Park is home to one of the most challenging 18-hole layouts carved out of the densely forested woodlands of the Cumberland Plateau. The course opened in 1972 and was designed by renowned designer Joe Lee. In 1998 the greens were rebuilt and restored to their original design and drainage work was performed in all 71 bunkers.
The Signature Hole is #15, a Par 4, 429-yard dogleg left which requires a long drive to set up an accurate second shot to avoid several bunkers that protect the green.
The golf course at Fall Creek Falls has been designated as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary by Audubon International. The course is the tenth in Tennessee and the third within the Tennessee State Parks system on the Tennessee Golf Trail to receive this honor. All nine courses of the TN Golf Trail are Audubon Certified Cooperative Sanctuaries. Only 684 golf courses in the United States have been designated as Audubon Cooperative Sanctuaries.
