Set amid the backdrop of the beautiful Smoky Mountains, Fox Den provides an atmosphere of comfort and enjoyment, and it is our pleasure to meet your expectations every time you visit the club. Our Members are our first priority, and each member of our staff is committed to carry on our rich tradition of providing quality, professional, and personal service.
At Fox Den, membership means more than playing on our phenomenal championship golf course or enjoying family and adult casual dining. It’s more than member events, the use of our Casual Care Center, or using our state-of-the-art fitness, tennis, and pool amenities… Membership at Fox Den is about Creating Life-Long Memories, Building Relationships and Enriching Lives.

As our vision statement affirms, “We are a full-service, family oriented country club which strives to create, through responsive services in all areas, an environment in which our members, their families, and guests can make new friends, network with others, and enjoy satisfying and memorable social, recreational, and business experiences.”

The course

Designed and built in 1969 by renowned architect Willard Byrd, who positioned the course perfectly amid the backdrop of the stunning Smoky Mountains, our magnificent setting boasts rolling hills, beautiful wooded areas, ponds, and long fairway stretches.

In 2004, Bill Bergin successfully completed a redesign of the golf course, significantly enhancing an already outstanding layout.

Multiple tees are available for all ages and ability to navigate the eight water features and 52 strategically placed bunkers protecting our large greens, averaging 7,500 square feet. Each set of nine holes is arranged in an out-and-back design with both the No. 9 and No. 18 holes returning to the clubhouse. Fox Den’s signature hole No. 18, a par 5, requires 3 accurate shots to a green complex guarded by a pond on the right and bunker on the left. Using a golf cart is not mandatory at Fox Den, and walking is allowed at all times on the course.
