Welcome to The Honors Course

Established on July 2, 1983, The Honors Course is a private golf club created to honor the amateur golfer. This Pete Dye designed championship golf course was considered radical in the 1980’s because of its acres of tall, native-grass rough, unusual Zoysia grass fairways and terrifying speed as lightning greens. 

Today, The Honors Course is considered a well-preserved example of Pete Dye’s death-or-glory architecture. 
In keeping with its philosophy, the Club has hosted many state, regional, national and international amateur championships including:

1989, 1999, 2009        ∞         Tennessee Golf Association Men’s Amateur Championships
