River Islands Golf Club -- Don't miss this course
Review by: Local Guy River Islands is one of those special golf courses which features several unforgettable holes. A 12 handicapper, I've never played this course from the tips where it is notably longer, but even from the mid tees it is all the challenge I would ever want. Fairways are the best I've ever played anywhere, without exaggeration. This area features several fine courses, but if you can only play one in the Knoxville / Pigeon Forge area, this is the one. When I got married, I booked tee times for me and all my out of town groomsmen at River Islands. The course puts white 150 stakes in the center of the fairways. Aim for those and keep it in play, as the rough penalizes you here. Again, this is a fantastic course!

River Islands Golf Club -- A Gem in the Smokies
Review by: Rob McCormack I have played at River Island many times. It is my favorite course in the Sevier/Knox County area. The views are incredible. The fairways roll and sway in all directions. There are three shots to be made over the French Broad River. One of which ( a par 3) is very challenging. This course is best suited for the golfer in the mid to low handicap range however, anyone can play it and have fun. It is not too long from the whites, but back up to the blue tees and you are in for hard day. There is a great pro shop with food available at the club house and at the turn, another remote snack bar ready to serve you. The prices can be high at times, but this course is worth it. The greens are bent grass, while the fairways are zoysia. I recommend this course to everyone visiting the area.

River Islands Golf Club -- One of the Best
Review by: Glenn Greene The only complaint I have ever had with River Islands (and I have played it numerous times) is that they have problems with their greens at times being spotty. Other than that this course is one great venue. It can play as tough as any from the tips and is not THAT easy from the forward tees. Rough can be very penal and water holes, well they speak for themselves (2 par 3's cross a portion of the French Broad River and a third runs parallel on both sides). Sometimes pricey but if the greens are in good shape worth it. Fairways second to none and views better than that.
