Golf Course Information
Named as one of Golf Digest's Top Ten Tennessee Courses in 2005-2006, River Islands has been the recipient of rave customer reviews since opening in 1991. The course plays with water on 9 holes and has become known in the Knoxville area for its beautiful Zoysia fairways.
River Islands offers a challenging yet scenic golf experience. The course plays 7,001 yards from the back tees, creating a worthy adversary for scratch golfers from the "tips". However, for those looking for a less competitive round, River Islands plays a manageable 6,300 yards from the regular tees. The course travels along the edge of the French Broad River, with four islands in the middle of the river serving as a focal point of the course. The championship layout and manicured conditions make River Islands a consistently superb playing experience.
The course prides itself on maintaining a consistent pace of play, and in addition to its longer holes, also offers challenging par 3s that will put even the most experienced golfer to the test. And, don't think that the difficult part is over upon reaching the green - each hole provides a supple, yet undulating putting opportunity to put your golf skills to the test.
