The Links at Kahite Golf Course and Clubhouse is Tellico Village’s newest 18-hole championship course. The Links at Kahite opened in 2002 and is a true links-style course with very unusual design characteristics. The course meanders through a beautiful natural setting and offers spectacular panoramic views of the Smoky Mountains. It has 6 sets of tees that play from 7,170 yards to 4,435 yards.
Among Kahite’s challenges are the 93 bunkers on the course, with 12 of those being on hole number 18. The famous 9th hole is an 808-yard par 6. Kahite features Bentgrass greens and Bermuda fairways. The tall fescue lining some of the fairways provides for outstanding shot framing and plenty of penalty for the wayward drive. The Links at Kahite was nominated in 2003 to Golf Digest as best new private course. It has since hosted many Tennessee Golf Association events, including the 2006 Junior Amateur Qualifier, the 2008 Women’s Senior Amateur Championship, and the 2009 Four-Ball and Senior Four-Ball Championships. It also hosted the 2009 and 2010 PGA Tour Nationwide Open Qualifier.
The Links at Kahite features the Village’s newest driving range facility and practice putting green. The Kahite Clubhouse offers great casual dining and an outdoor patio for post-game refreshments.
