A Brief History

Council Fire was designed by Nicklaus protege, Bob Cupp and opened in March of 1992 and hosted a PGA Tour event that year, The Chattanooga Classic. Mark Carnevale emerged as the Champion leading him to become Rookie of the Year for 1992.

The course measures 6999 yards from the Black Tees with 6 other sets of tees ranging from 6595 yards to 4021 yards, making it a course for all levels of golfers.
