At the round on June 6 at Cherokee Run, we had members place their name on the wrong flight placard on THREE holes. When this happens, it disqualifies that player, AS WELL AS ALL OTHERS FROM THAT FLIGHT and upsets your fellow members.
Our flight and handicaps change for the first full week of the new month. It is every members responsibility to check their flight before they play. Even if you do not play during the past month, there is a chance that your flight may have changed.
Below (copied from the April Newsletter) is the proper way to complete your scorecard. Note that your flight and points SHOULD be entered. To help avoid the mismarking of closeup placards, (and making other members unhappy) we will now make the entry of the flight and points MANDATORY. The table will NOT accept any scorecard that does not contain this information.
In addition, please ensure that you write LEGIBLY and that you are sure that the SCORE entered is correct. Once the signed scorecard is turned in, it becomes official and that is what is entered into thr computer system.
If you have never played a mountain course, this is the one to play and remember to bring your camera (or your phone camera)!
From valley floors to mountaintops, Smoky Mountain Country Club provides a truly unique golf experience. Located in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, Smoky Mountain Country Club provides a challenging test of golf set against a backdrop of breathtaking views.
Smoky Mountain Country Club was designed by Thomas Walker. With nearly 40 years of experience in golf course design, and 29 golf courses to his name across the United States, Thomas Walker is well-known in golf circles as a premier designer of golf courses. Having served as Vice President of Gary Player Design for six years, his quest to create a visually stunning course echoes Gary Player’s core belief that a course should reflect beauty and harmony and put something back into nature.
The course features impeccably maintained bent grass greens and Bermuda tees & fairways. The course plays just over 6,100 yards (par 71), with almost 400 feet of elevation change. Smoky Mountain Country Club is what you anticipate when playing mountain golf, as you will encounter a number of shots from significant elevations to target areas below.

If your have limited time to practice your putting, try practicing what you need. You should putt just six-foot putts from different angles to the hole. A six-foot putt will help your develop you stroke, feel, and routine. In addition, most players of all levels will need to make at least three or four six-foot putts per round to save par. Mater this distance in practice, and your confidence will go up while your scores go down.
