The Tanasi Golf Course and Clubhouse opened in 1996 and was the second of the three courses built in Tellico Village. The 18-hole layout incorporates Tellico Lake to enhance the beauty of the facility and features Crenshaw bentgrass greens and Bermuda fairways. Tanasi is much different than the other Village courses in its design. It is more open and has much bigger greens.
Holes 8, 9 and 10 bring the lake into play off the tee, offering some of the most scenic and challenging holes on the course. This championship course has seven sets of tees that play from 6,731 yards to 4,480 yards. The course is loaded with tough elevated greens characterized by undulation and surrounding bunkers. Tanasi’s 9th hole is a short driving hole to a three-tiered, downward-sloping fairway with a unique approach shot over a portion of Tellico Lake. The course also boasts some fun holes, including the double-dogleg par 5 hole number 13, and subsequent hole 14 – a par 3 that requires the golfer to hit over a small pond onto an elevated green that slopes to the front.
Tanasi has an 18-hole putting green as well as a complete clubhouse. The Tanasi Clubhouse’s wraparound portico invites visitors to kick back, relax and take in the spectacular lake and golf course views. The restaurant offers appetizing lunch and dinner options for golfers and guests.
