8919 Harrison Bay Rd
Harrison, TN 37341-8935, United States

The second of the five Bear Trace courses to open, Harrison Bay is one of those rare Jack Nicklaus designs that is open to the public, located approximately 20 minutes north of downtown Chattanooga. The course runs through mature parkland and was designed with water conservation, reduced chemical use, and habitat and wildlife management in mind. In fact, the course has been certified by Audubon International.

The course itself features Bermuda fairways lined with pines and hardwoods, with water on twelve holes. Most greens are open in front, which makes the course more user-friendly for high-handicap players and allows run-up shots, while the fairway and green-side bunkers fit Nicklaus' usual design.

Played it late last fall. Enjoyed it very much. Will play it again when i get down to Chattanooga late spring. A little pricey but still a scenic course.

Tell Catfish (the starter) I said hello. The kitchen was so backed up with orders from a non-golf event going on in the club house, he offered to bring my sandwhich to me when it was ready. Real nice people at this club. The scenery is awesome as well. Quite a few of the holes are on a lake.
