The Course
at Sewanee Inn

After a two-year overhaul by world renowned golf course architect Gil Hanse, The Course was re-opened in 2013 and awarded the Nine-Hole U.S. Renovation of the Year by Golf Magazine. Mr. Hanse was also selected to design the golf course for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and the Doral Golf Resort’s TPC Blue Monster course in Miami. The new course features nine new green complexes, challenging new bunkers, and a distinct set of alternate tees.
