Featuring a true, links style, Arthur Hills design, River Islands has been a must play course in Tennessee since it opened in 1991. The course covers over 7,000 yards and takes you over sweeping knolls, into lush valleys, below sharp bluffs, and across a flowing river dotted with islands. With water on 9-holes, brand new MiniVerde greens and beautiful Zoysia fairways, River Islands offers a challenging yet beautiful experience. The course travels along the edge of the French Broad River with three islands in the middle of the river serving as focal points of the course. The championship layout and manicured conditions make River Islands a consistently superb playing experience.
