Our Vision

With its focus on golf courses and amenities for the avid golfer, Golf Guide Directory offers its readers comprehensive information, articles and feature ads on area golf courses, accommodations, dining and other golf related activities.
Our plan is to make it easier for golfers to find golf courses and golf-related businesses by mapping and organizing all of the opportunities in the region.

Our Story

Golf Guide Directory began as a regional golf directory serving the East Tennessee region in 2015.

Since then, it has morphed into a golf facilitator that serves the needs of golf courses and businesses in 54 cities located in East Tennessee, and includes the number one visited National Park in the country (The Great Smoky Mountains) where we had over 14 million visitors in 2016.

By bringing together golfers and the courses and the products they love, Golf Guide Directory serves to help them serve each other.
