Crossville-Cumberland County Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on June 12.
Fairfield Glade is pleased to announce that Stonehenge Golf Course has been ranked #4 and Heatherhurst Brae Golf Course #5 as Golfweek Magazine’s “Best Courses You Can Play in Tennessee.” Each year, Golfweek Magazine ranks golf courses state-by-state. Stonehenge Golf Club has placed in the top five for the past eight years and this is the third year in a row to have the Brae course at Heatherhurst included on this prestigious list. This is the 22st year of Golfweek’s rankings. Golfweek has golf course raters who travel the world playing and ranking courses each year. The golf course rankers have 10 criteria’s to go by:
Ease and intimacy of routing
Quality of feature shaping
Natural setting and overall land plan
Interest of greens and surrounding contours
Variety and memorability of par 3s
Variety and memorability of par 4s
Variety and memorability of par 5s
Basic quality of conditioning
Landscape and tree management
“Walk in the park” test. (This is the degree of which the course ultimately is worth spending a half-day on as a compelling outdoor experience.)
Stonehenge Golf Course gets its name from walls of native stone found throughout the 6549 yard, par 72 layouts. Natural rock outcroppings come into play on several holes, with a 15 foot layered stone retaining wall running along the left and rear of the signature downhill par 3, 14th hole. The course is proud to feature bent grass tees, greens and fairways and hosts the Tennessee Senior State Open, Tennessee Golf Association Father-Son Championship and the The Golf Capital of Tennessee Women’s Open. The Brae Course at Heatherhurst, named for the Scottish term for a hillside by a body of water is a 6,499 yard par 72 layout designed by Gary Roger Baird. The front 9 provides the most challenge, including the 4th hole which requires two forced carries over Otter Creek to a green perched on top of a beautiful stacked stone wall. The back 9 is unique in that it has three par 3’s, three par 4’s and three par 5’s. The par 5 10th hole is the signature hole playing 562 yards downhill to the green positioned at the edge of beautiful Lake Dartmoor. The Brae is the only course in the area to feature Zoysia fairways that provide unmatched fairway conditions. (See photos attached for Stonehenge & The Brae)
