Stonehenge Golf Course at Fairfield Glade, Crossville
The Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain, Crossville
Crossville easily lay claim to being called the “Golf Capital of Tennessee.” Situated on Tennessee’s beautiful Cumberland Plateau, 9 championship golf courses await golfers of all skill levels. From Wyndham at Fairfield Glade, Tennessee’s famous vacation and retirement resort featuring 90 holes of golf to the Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain State Park, the best spot for golf in Tennessee is Crossville and Cumberland County.
The five course at Wyndham Fairfield Glade each offer a unique golfing experience. Stonehenge is the most well-known of the courses at the resort. Architect Joe Lee took a pristine tract of land in the rolling and wooded Cumberland Plateau and made it his personal canvas for the masterpiece that is Stonehenge. Located on the highest point in Fairfield Glade, the first course to open, Druid Hills provides several scenic views of the surrounding mountains, rolling, tree-lined fairways, plenty of water, several doglegs, and undulating bent grass greens. By today's standards the course is not long, but the bent grass greens, narrow tree-lined fairways, strategically placed bunkers, and water on 6 of the 18 golf holes makes Dorchester Golf Club a challenge for even the most skilled golfer. Heatherhurst Golf Club at Fairfield Glad offers
two beautiful courses, the Crag and the Brae. The Brae is the only course in the area with Zoysia grass fairways, optimal during the hottest summer months. The Crag course is player- friendly with Bentgrass tees and greens, wide fairways-great for short hitters, and strategically placed bunkers adding to the fun.
The other area courses include Lake Tansi Golf Course, ranked in the Top 10 courses in Tennessee by Golf Advisor; Cumberland Cove Golf Club, a scenic course with modest elevation changes; River Run Golf Club, a Ron Garl design; and The Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain, Tennessee’s first Jack Nicklaus-designed course and a favorite stop on the Tennessee Golf Trail.
As one of Tennessee's top destinations for tourism, there's much more to offer than golf! Visitors will enjoy many outdoor activities, live entertainment, historical and cultural attractions, fine restaurants, winery tours, an abundance of shopping alternatives, and a moderate, year- round climate - not to mention the Southern charm and hospitality, beautiful country scenery and small town atmosphere unique to Crossville and Cumberland County. With all Crossville and Cumberland County have to offer, the “Golf and Vacation Capital of Tennessee” may be a more appropriate title.
