Mirimichi

  66 Reviews

Has everything you want out of a nice golf course. Looks worthy of hosting a tournament almost if the conditions were touched up just a little. Really cool patio area to cool off and get food/drinks at the turn too

I was eager to play Mirimichi, since it garnered "best public course in Tennessee" by Golf Magazine. Honestly I was left a bit disappointed by the outward nine holes. Not that they were bad, I just had great expectations. You are eased into the round by a short, straightforward par-4 opener, a gentle par 5 and a wedge par 3. The front side plays parkland style, back and forth, lending to mostly straight holes that had me wondering why the high marks were awarded. I soon had my answer after making the turn. Character started to appear in the holes. The 10th is a short par-4 that requires a precise approach to a green with an 83-yard depth, bordered by a creek in front and right. No. 11 is a beautiful short par 3 with a stone retaining wall and water in front. Eleven is one of the best-designed par 5s I can remember playing. A creek runs down the entire right side of the landing area and a bunker guards the left side. The narrow landing area allows for a variety of club choices to a narrow fairway. The second shot must be fit between a large oak on the right and a cluster of small bunkers to the left. If you navigate all of that, a wedge to an elevated green awaits. The short par-4 14th is another excellent design. A large, deep fairway bunker extends into the fairway about 215 yards out from the gold tee (~6,500 yards). A creek runs down the right, requiring another well-thought out tee shot. I hit a 7-iron to stay short of the trap, while my partner hit driver over the bunker and in front of the green. That makes for a good hole, in my opinion. The collection of par 3s were memorable, even if a bit short (hit three PWs and a 9-iron). The front nine is in a flat part of the property, but is marked by rolling fairways and pockets around the greens that are closely mown. The back nine provides more elevation change. The Bermuda greens were good and quick, with a bit of grain. I really liked the practice area. The driving range is wide and flat with an abundance of targets. An expansive putting green and chipping area is also available. One of my favorite things about Mirimichi is its unique halfway house. It is a large party deck, complete with outdoor bar and fireplace and sits between the ninth and 18th greens. Lights are strung from the large trees surrounding it, making it an awesome place to loiter late in the day after a round.
Bottom line: Not sure if it's Tennessee's best public course. I would have liked for the two nines to have complemented each other, but the back nine was as solid as they come with more memorable holes.
