Fort Loudoun State Park

This historic state park was one of the first British fortifications on the western frontier. It has been restored and is open for the historical education and enjoyment of the public. More information on this park and many more can be found at the TN State Parks website.

This was a very good state park. The location is excellent, right on a lake of the Tennessee River. I went there for the history. This was the site of a British army fort before the Revolution. I attended a program with a guide dressed in period British army dress who discussed the life of a British soldier on the American frontier It was very good. They also do a number of other similar presentations. The visitor center also has very good exhibits concerning the period of the fort's operation. Even if you are not into the history, the scenic area is worth visiting.

The Links at Kahite

Reviewed By TennesseeLady78

Played yesterday - 22 Oct. Course Condition: EXCELLENT (minus (traps)) , particularly the greens which were consistently 10 -11 (stimp meter) throughout. Layout: EXCELLENT. Not really a links, built on not-too-hilly, lake-side East Tennessee terrain. Tellico Lake is visible from some holes, as are the Smoky Mountains. Beautiful! No tricked-up holes, unless one considers a dead-straight 808 yard par six a trick. Five or six tees on each hole. Ladies tees are far forward, where they should be. The lady in our group (a decent ball striker) was able to (pretty much) pull the same club for her approach shots as the men. Short holes had smaller greens and run-off areas, emphasizing finesse and precision. Long holes had, for the most part, run-up pathways. Not too many blind shots. Holes often look tighter from the tee than they actually are (not unlike the Ocean Course at Kiawah). Overall, a very playable design. Another noteworthy comparison: playability here much better than the Plantation Course at Kapalua (site of the Mercedes Championship on Maui). Fairway turf was dense and just a touch long, improving playability too, but lengthens the course. Not a lot of roll. Primary rough is 2" bermuda. Irrigated. Rough. Secondary rough is fescue-like, let grow more than ankle deep. I imagine its mowed a couple times a year to keep down saplings and gives the layout a links-like aesthetic. Also keeps errant shots out of lawns aside some holes; but difficult to find any hit here. A few sand traps (there are nearly a hundred) need drainage improvements - were matted at their bottoms. Many are definitely in play, different ones for different tees and pin placements. Design and course conditions favor quick play. We never waited. To me it looks like Kahite gets little play - mostly the retirees who live there (many lovely newer homes). And the clubhouse and practice grounds are not sized for crowds. The range had been over-seeded with rye and matts were out. Also consistent w/light play: on Sunday afternoon all were closed at 4PM. But drink machines on the course are well-stocked and in good repair. AND all this for a guest fee (w/cart) of $32. Seriously! GREAT VALUE.

Reviewed By jamesag2016 - Topeka, United States

My wife’s family is on the Cherokee Rolls and we happened to see a brochure at a rest stop and decided to drive from Chattanooga to see this museum. It is extremely well done and explains the history of the Cherokee language and Sequoyah’s life. My wife and as free with her Cherokee members card and with AAA my entry fee was $3.50. Exceptional price for this small museum. We thought it was worth the drive and would recommend to anyone interested in Cherokee history.
