Arnold Golf Course is Arnold Air Force Base's military golf course. However, the course has obtained a waiver and is open for public play. The golf facility consists of a 9 hole golf course, full driving range, practice chipping and putting greens, practice bunker, and 18 hole FootGolf course. The golf shop, Mulligan's Grill and locker rooms are located in building 2815 near Tullahoma about 7 miles from the main base off of Wattendorf Highway.
The course features tight, tree-lined fairways and very small, elevated greens. There are several sets of tee boxes at each hole, allowing golfers to get a different "look" when playing the second 9 holes during an 18 hole round. The course measures 3,193 yards and par is 35 or 36 depending on what set of tee boxes are played. The course is known for lengthy and tight par 3s that incorporate small, sloping greens. Demanding and precise shots will be required to hit fairways and greens at Arnold Golf Course, and that's what makes it so much fun!
If soccer is more your sport, then try FootGolf. FootGolf follows the basic rules of golf while using a soccer ball to kick into holes. Basically, FootGolf is the combination of golf and soccer. It is played by kicking a soccer ball on a golf course with the objective of getting the ball into an oversized (21-inch diameter) hole in the fewest amount of kicks. It's 99% golf minus the equipment. Anyone can do it! You just have to be able to kick a ball. There is no age restriction as long as pace of play is maintained. It is fun for the whole family. It's much less expensive, and there is no equipment required other than a #5 soccer ball. It is great exercise and it plays faster than golf.
Golfers and FootGolfers may play simultaneously although there may be times it is designated strictly for one or the other depending on tournament schedule or league play.
