FAIRFIELD GLADE – Each year, Golfweek Magazine ranks golf courses state-by-state, and an Upper Cumberland club has placed among the top five best in Tennessee.
Stonehenge Golf Club ranked No. 4 in Golfweek Magazine’s “Best Courses You Can Play” in the Volunteer State. Stonehenge Golf Club has placed in the top five for the past several years, according to the Fairfield Glade Community Club (FGCC), moving up from No. 5 in 2015.
Stonehenge Golf Club gets its name from walls of native stone found throughout its 6,549-yard, par-72 layout. 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 14th hole. The course, which features bent grass tees, greens and fairways, also hosts the Tennessee Senior State Open, Tennessee Golf Association Father-Son Championship, The Golf Capital of Tennessee Women’s Open and the Challenge Cup Matches.
Stonehenge was the only UC course to make the Golfweek list. Sweetens Cove in South Pittsburg took the top spot, followed by Mirimichi in Millington, Hermitage (President’s Reserve) in Old Hickory and Gaylord Springs Golf Links in Nashville.
Stonehenge Golf Course officially reopens for the season on March 21 and is one of five championship golf courses located within Fairfield Glade, a 12,000-plus acre golf, tennis and lake resort community located on the Cumberland Plateau near Crossville.
