Moccasin Bend Public Golf Club

  16 Reviews

Every Chattanooga golfer has played The Bend many times. We complain about it, we joke about it, but we don't know what we'd do if it went away.

Yes, it abuts a sewage treatment facility, which you can't ignore when the wind is blowing the wrong way. Yes, you will hear bursts of gunfire from the police shooting range nearby. It's part of the charm.

The fairways are mighty wide, but you'll still miss some of them. The greens are mostly flat, but you'll still three-putt a few. Who are you, Jack Nicklaus? Get over yourself.

They have a great selection of beer and a full snack bar, just like the old days. They have a good practice range where you'll run into a couple of friends while you hit a small bucket during your lunch hour. Did I mention it's only minutes from downtown? Get a range token and a couple of hot dogs. That's what I call a power lunch.

Moc Bend hot deal tee times are by far the best value in the Chattanooga Area. The course is overall on par, or slightly better, than the other local public courses when it comes to conditions and layout. It's more likely than most to be cart-path only, but if you walk, or play two days after the last rain, it plays fine. The course offers a good range of holes, some difficult, some score-opportunities, and some fun layouts. The par 5's are all relatively straight, and for medium to long drivers, reachable in two. Par 3's are all demanding in their own ways, difficult up and downs on 3 of 4 if greens are missed. Overall, you can play nicer courses in the area, but with the hot-deal tee times, there's no better value around.

The course appears to have very limited maintenance. Greens were very recently top dressed with alot of sand.

Several greens were spotty. Cart paths are rough and need work. Keep in mind that it is late in the season. I haven't played this course in several years but did come away with a feeling that the course condition has slipped. We still enjoyed playing on this course and I would recommend it
