Tennessee National Golf Club (Loudon, Tennessee)

Rankings:  5th      

The Takeaway:  Like all Norman designs, Tennessee National is a stout test. The par 3s are the highlight of the routing that has come clunky transitions and features too many holes running the same but counters that with interesting individual holes and a setting along the Tennessee River.  Grade B

What to Expect:  Tennessee National is an interesting Greg Norman layout in the southeast portion of the Volunteer State and is wrapped by the Tennessee River, which most prominently comes into view on the signature par three 12th. The large undulations in the property paired with the disconnected routing make it a difficult course to consider walking, so most players will take a cart. Speaking of the routing, the majority of holes run in a similar direction (NE or SW) which can hurt the variety of the layout on a windy day. The collection of par threes are the biggest highlight to the course and the short par four 13th stands as the hole that is the most enjoyable to play. It should come as no surprise that the course is a strong test of golf; a signature feature at Norman courses from the tips so you'll need to be on your game to score well.
