This very scenic course features narrow, tree-lined fairways. There is only one tee box per hole, so the ladies' tees are marked off an estimated eleven yards in front of the men's tees. In other words, the ladies' tees have not been measured.

|Short. No sand. No water. No rough. What makes this course is the terrain and the greens. The course is built mostly on the side of a hill. There is only one flat hole and it's a 90-yard par 3 with a semi-blind tee shot. Many challenging lies and stances, with ball above or below your feet lots of the time. But it's the greens that really make this place. They are small and subtly sloped and can be lightning quick when mowed close. I once saw a good golfer six putt on the third green. The second green is maddeningly difficult. The ninth green is merely impossible. It's a small, two-tiered, horseshoe-shaped affair cut into the side of a very steep hill. That it comes at the end of a long, uphill par four is icing on the cake. One day every year we talk the greenskeeper into cutting the hole on the upper tier. When that happens, it's Caddyshack meets Tin Cup. Seven is a good score. This is an unusual course in many respects. The fairways are sparse. The clubhouse is spartan. No bagboy will greet you as you pull into the unpaved parking lot. But if you like unique challenges you will enjoy Taneycomo and the price is right. Sitting on the patio behind the ninth green, watching the group behind you trying to negotiate that killer is a sport all its own.|
