Club Recommendations

Playing Tip for Low Handicappers:

For low handicappers, Hole 1 at Holston Hills Country Club is a great opportunity to start the round strong. With a distance of 448 yards from the Pro teebox and only five bunkers to avoid, this hole offers plenty of scoring potential. Aim for the fairway's slight dogleg left and take into account any weather conditions that may impact your ball flight. With an ample green area of 8874 sq ft, you have room to land your approach shot safely on the green.

Playing Tip for Mid Handicappers:

Mid handicappers should also aim for the fairway's slight dogleg left on Hole 1 at Holston Hills Country Club. However, with a slightly shorter distance of 424 yards from the Men's teebox, it may be wise to lay up short of some of those bunkers if necessary. Keep in mind any weather conditions that may affect your ball flight as you plan your approach shot onto the large green.

Playing Tip for High Handicappers:

High handicappers should focus on avoiding trouble on Hole 1 at Holston Hills Country Club. With a distance of 374 yards from the Seniors' teebox and only two percent bunker coverage on the green, there is less risk involved off-the-tee compared to other holes. Take advantage by aiming towards areas with more margin for error and play smart shots onto this generous-sized green.

Local Weather Considerations:

Throughout all four seasons in Knoxville, Tennessee, altitude will not significantly impact ball flight conditions or hole difficulty at Holston Hills Country Club due to its relatively low elevation above sea level (around 900 feet). However, temperature fluctuations can occur throughout each season so be sure to adjust club selection accordingly when needed.
