Explore Our Tennessee Golf Courses

Tellico Village is home to three of the most beautiful and challenging championship golf courses in the southeast. All three private courses were designed by Ault, Clark & Associates, architects of some of America’s greatest courses, including Congressional Country Club (Blue), Tropicana Country Club, the Tournament Players Club in Las Vegas, and Sawgrass Country Club. Each of the scenic and beautifully maintained courses of Tellico Village has its own distinctive design and personality.

In December, 2022, The Links at Kahite was named Tennessee’s Private Course of the Year by the Tennessee Turfgrass Association. Another accolade for the Tellico Village golf program!

Over the years, Tellico Village’s private, championship golf courses have hosted many state and national championship events including the Tennessee Golf Association’s Junior Amateur Qualifier, Women’s and Men’s Senior Amateur Championships, and Four-Ball and Senior Four-Ball Championship as well as the PGA Tour Nationwide Knoxville Open Qualifier.

We offer year-round golf 365 days a year!

Golfing in Tellico Village

Village residents are heavily involved in all aspects of the community’s golf program. Many Village golfers are members of the Men’s and Ladies Golf Associations which conduct weekly golf events and other social activities. Popular Member-Member and Member-Guest tournaments are staged annually. A Golf Advisory Committee works with the director of golf to formulate course improvements, business strategies and develop a yearly budget for the department. Getting a tee is easy thanks to the computerize Chelsea Reservation System which gives Villagers purview of available tee times at all three community courses. In 2021, the golf department purchase three fleets of new electric golf carts to service each of the courses. We also have Finn Scooters available at our Kahite Golf Course.
