The KCSA room block (discounted rate) at HeartSong Resort is full. 
 
We have had an outstanding response from the membership and our room block is officially full. What does this mean for those of you that have not made your reservations? There are rooms still available at the HeartSong property and we recommend you secure your room(s) very soon as the hotel is close to being sold out. If you are unable to find availability at HeartSong, the DreamMore Resort (a sister property) is another option. The DreamMore Resort is a short 2-3 minute trolly ride from the HeartSong Resort.

Tuesday / Open Day Options

Golf Event at Gatlinburg Golf Course

On Tuesday morning, our golf scramble event will take place at the Gatlinburg Golf Course at 8:00 a.m. The event will include golf, breakfast, lunch, and prizes will be awarded to the winning teams. This is a fantastic golf course with some really scenic views. You can register for this event in the registration process, please add your handicap or what you would shoot on 18 holes in the comments section. This helps us better prepare the teams. The cost of the golf event is $175 per player.

Teeing off is a little different in the mountains. Gatlinburg Golf Course provides a unique experience in a spectacular mountain setting. Located just five miles from downtown Gatlinburg, the Gatlinburg Golf Course is open year-round with modern facilities, a fully-equipped pro shop, and a food-service area. This beautiful 18-hole course was designed by noted golf course architect William Langford and underwent major renovations by Bob Cupp & Associates of Atlanta in 2007. The course offers beginners as well as experienced golfers a challenge at every hole with breathtaking views of the Great Smoky Mountains and is arguably one of the best golf courses in Tennessee and one of the most picturesque courses in America.

After golf, golfers are welcome to explore Dollywood Theme Park. Be sure and also register for the theme park during registration if you wish to visit the park. The $75 KCSA rate is still considerable less than the cost of regular admission.
