Tanasi Championship Golf Course
Tanasi was the second of the Tellico Village courses to open. The first tee shot was hit in 1996 and the course has been improving ever since. It has very fun and contemporary layout that winds through the Tanasi neighborhood, and even has some holes that run over and alongside parts of Tellico Lake. Forced carries over water on holes 8 and 9 are necessary, as is a precisely placed tee shot on hole 10 to stay out of the water.
Tanasi offers options for players of all ages and skill sets, as well as a selection of tees to best fit your game. Our Black Championship tees measure 6,731 yards, while our yellow tees offer a fun short course at 4,486 yards. Tanasi is a fun course to play with wide fairways, large flat landing areas and big undulating greens.
Tanasi also has an expansive putting green with large undulations that mimic the greens you will encounter throughout the golf course. The Tanasi Clubhouse includes an excellent restaurant that offers a casual dining room with beautiful views of Tellico Lake. The wrap-around porch invites you to sit back, relax and enjoy the spectacular lake and golf course view while you dine. We look forward to seeing you at Tanasi for a fun-filled afternoon of golf and fellowship.
