Where2Golf says: 

Originally one of the five Bear Trace courses designed by Jack Nicklaus for Tennessee State Parks, the layout at Chickasaw benefits from a wonderfully natural woodland setting. Roads and housing play no part in proceedings here. Located in Chickasaw State Park, this well-rated and popular golf course is laid out on pleasantly undulating terrain, which gives many holes great character. A common feature of the holes here is to drive the ball from elevated tees, with a clear view of the "trouble" ahead, then play down and back-up to elevated greens. The course weaves its way through a wonderful forest of pines, oaks, tulip poplars and hickories, stretching to just over 7,100 yards from the back tees. Chickasaw lays down a good test for golfers of all abilities, who will enjoy hitting to good-width, but never overly wide fairways. With plenty of attractive bunkering, a few small ponds and Piney Creek meandering past seven of the holes, there is plenty to concentrate on and put your course management to the test. Maintenance standards are good without necessarily being immaculate, but be assured, Chickasaw will not disappoint. This is a very attractive and natural tree-lined layout, definitely one to include on your play list if you are in the area. After your round, the handcrafted clubhouse, styled after a log cabin and overlooking the 18th hole, provides an ideal place to muse on all those "what ifs......?" from your round.

Stay & Play at the Chickasaw Chalet, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Did you know?

The Chickasaw people are Native Americans who previously inhabitated parts of Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee. Before contact with the first European settlers, the Chickasaw had migrated east of the Mississippi River and occupied much of what is present-day northeast Mississippi. In 1832 they were forced to sell their lands and move to Indian Territory (Oklahoma) during the era of Indian Removal. Most Chickasaw (the 13th largest federally recognised tribe in the United States) now live in Oklahoma. The Chickasaw are related to the Choctaw and share a common history with them; both are of the Muskogean linguistic group.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
