Golfweek Magazine Names Two Fairfield Glade Golf Courses to the Top Five 2017 Best Courses You Can Play in Tennessee.

The Fairfield Glade is pleased to announce that Stonehenge Golf Club has been ranked #2 and Heatherhurst Brae Course #5 as Golfweek Magazine's " Best Courses You Can Play in Tennessee." Each year, Golfweek Magazine ranks golf courses state-by-state. Stonehenge Golf Club has placed in the top five for the past several years and we are ecstatic to now have the Brae course included on this prestigious list. This is the 20th year of Golfweek's rankings. Golfweek has golf course raters who travel the world playing and ranking courses each year. The golf course rankers have

10 criteria's to go by:
1. Ease and intimacy of routing
2. Quality of feature shaping
3. Natural setting and overall land plan
4. Interest of greens and surrounding contours
5. Variety and memorability of par 3s
6. Variety and memorability of par 4s
7. Variety and memorability of par 5s
8. Basic quality of conditioning
9. Landscape and tree management
10. "Walk in the park" test. (This is the degree to which the course ultimately is worth spending a h
alf-day on as a compelling outdoor experience.)


Stonehenge Golf Course gets its name from walls of native stone found throughout the 6549 yard, par 72 layouts. 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 par 3, 14th hole.

The course is proud to feature bent grass tees, greens and fairways and hosts the Tennessee Senior State Open, Tennessee Golf Association Father-Son Championship and The Golf Capital of Tennessee Women's Open. The Brae Course at Heatherhurst, named for the Scottish term for a hillside by a body of water is a 6,499 yard par 72 layout designed by Gary Roger Baird. The front 9 provides the most challenge, including the fourth hole which requires two forced carries over Otter Creek to a green perched on top of a beautiful stacked stone wall. The back 9 is unique in that it has three par 3's, three par 4's and three par 5's. The par 5 10th hole is the signature hole playing 562 yards downhill to the green positioned at the edge of beautiful La
ke Dartmoor. The Brae is the only course in the area to feature Zoysia fairways that provide unmatched fairway conditions.

Fairfield Glade is home to five beautiful golf courses and is open to the public for an amazing golf experience. To book a tee time at any of Fairfield Glade's five golf courses, you may call Central Tee Times at (800) 624-8755.

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf.

In 2007, the idea for a network of local golf directory sites formed and GolfTrips.com was born. Today, the network consists of a site in all 50 states supported by national sites like GolfTrips.com, GolfGuide.com and GolfPackages.com. It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.

On the golf course, Brian is known as a fierce weekend warrior that fluctuates between a 5-9 handicap. With a soft fade, known as "The Weis Slice", and booming 300+ drives, he can blast it out of bounds with the best of them.
