Sweetens Cove Golf Club

Sweetens Cove Golf Club is a new 9 hole golf course opening in October in S. Pittsburg TN. It has already been called one of the top 9 hole courses in the world before it was even finished by more than one top golf course media outlet. The course was designed and literally built by hand by GCA Rob Collins and is his first solo course. Rob spent almost 700 days on site personally shaping the course by hand after sand capping the whole property. The golf course is characterized by extremely wide fairways, with approximately 38 acres of 419 Bermuda and 15-20 acres of fescues and warm season natives in the out rough areas. The greens, which range in size from 4,000 – 20,000 square feet, were grassed with MiniVerde. Expansive and open views are common across the 72-acre property, which sits at the base of several nearby mountains. All 419 will be mown at fairway height, with the exception of the tees, which will be mown slightly lower. There is strategic bunkering, some of which is extremely penal, throughout the layout and there are multiple ways to play each hole. Bunker faces were grassed with a fine fescue blend to help establish a rustic appearance. Bold contouring on the greens and the surrounds also helps set up much of the strategy and will provide a great deal of interest as players discover ways to negotiate the ground contours on their approach shots and putts. In a recent article in Links Magazine noted course architecture writer Adam Lawrence said "Collins turned the flat land into one of America's most remarkable nine-holers, where huge, humpy-bumpy greens, centerline bunkers, and the feel of an old-school Scottish links."
