Hillbilly Golf, Gatlinburg

4.4
#1 of 11 in Fun & Games in Gatlinburg
At Hillbilly Golf, catch a tram for an uphill ride through a forest--then start an unusual downhill game of miniature golf on one of two 18-hole courses. You'll be in a real forest, so expect to keep losing your golf balls. All of the obstacles are hillbilly-themed: challenging tractors, outhouses, moonshine stills, and native plants.

  • I’ll be honest my husband picked this place and I was a little skeptical based on how old it looked from the road. I figured why not go to one of the Ripley’s courses with all the bells and whistles. ...  more »
  • We had a good time. I really wasn't able to play, but it's either play or pay $13.00 to watch. A little ridiculous. It was my sons birthday, and he wanted to go there. Staff was not the friendliest at...  more »
  • This is a wonderful mini golf experience. The two courses are unique and very fun to play. The incline rail car is a blast to ride. The employees were kind and helpful and there is free parking. Oh an...  more »

  • I have always loved this place since I was a little kid. Every year during our family reunion in Gatlinburg I always try to go. I was disappointed when I heard on the news that it had been burned by the fires. But when I got into town I saw that they were open, and was very excited. So the next night we went down to play. I was talking to the lady working, and she said that the only effect they had from the fire was a few trees on the back side of their property not even close to the playing areas. She said they tried so hard to have the news correct the story of them being severely hurt by the fire, but they wouldn't do it. They did however have some damage from the recent storms, and the lights aren't working. Before they would stay open until well past midnight, but now they are forced to close at dark. They are working on fixing the problem. So if you love this place like I do, make sure you stop by and play. And if possible donate some extra money to help get them back on track.
  • Great course, a lot of fun, and very nice people. Far from the most expensive golf in the area, and includes a cart ride up the hill. Only negative was their no weapons policy. One of only two places on our trip to Gatlinburg that I couldn't carry into.
  • This is probably the coolest golf course I've been to! The incline railway up and down the course was a cool feature. Will come back if we are in Gatlinburg again!
  • Soo much fun! Much better than the usual putt-put! I would recommend anyone to this place! If I had time, my family and I would have played more than just the 2 times that we did!
  • It was a real lot of fun to play mini golf on the mountain side & would love to do it again-prices were alittle high & no discount coupons were found to lower the price!!!
