Old Stone Fort Golf Course May Reopen

golf ballTwo local businessmen, Tink Driver and his partner Pete Jackson are working on plans to open the golf course at Old Stone Fort. Jackson says that the price for the land, at and around the old golf course will have to be negotiated. Driver hopes to use the land adjacent to the golf course to possibly expand the 9-hole course to 18-holes. Driver adds that lodging is also an idea they have. Jackson says that the state of Tennessee must receive authorization from the United States Department of Interior National Park Service and to comply with any conditions it imposes. Once the National Park Service authorizes the sale the process may move along.
The golf course was originally called the Manchester Country Club before the state began running the course and closed it in September of 2011.
