River Islands Golf Course, Kodak, TN: Hole #3 island green

River Islands Golf Club, located near Sevierville, Tennessee, has been named one of Golf Digest's top ten Tennessee courses on multiple occasions. Generally, it is considered one of the more scenic golf courses in the Smokies. Built in 1991, this 18-hole, Arthur Hill-designed course ranges from 6,300 to 7,001 yards, depending on your choice of tees. With well-manicured Zoysia fairways and a links-style layout that borders the scenic French Broad River, the course is as much a feast for the eyes as it is a challenge to a golfer's skills. In fact, several small islands in the middle of the channel (hence the course's name) actually come into play on holes 3 through 16 and on 15 and 16. The signature hole, number 3, is a 195-yard par 3 requiring a precision shot from an elevated tee to an island green. Overall, the fairways are open and rolling, while the greens are moderately sloped and elevated.

Rates range from $25 to $59 for 18 holes of play, with rates varying according to age, time of day and day of week. Tee times can be reserved up to 30 days in advance, and rain checks are available. On-site amenities include an eatery serving lunch fare such as sandwiches, hot dogs and hamburgers.
