City Opens Newly Paved Golf Cart Paths

Posted: 08/13/2015
Mayor Rogero, City Council, City Parks & Recreation and Billy Casper Golf representatives cut the ribbon for a $1 million golf cart path paving project that includes nine miles of cart paths at two City golf courses, Knoxville Municipal and Whittle Springs.

The repaving is a first in 30 years for both golf courses. At Knoxville Municipal Golf Course, this will be the first time that its four miles of cart paths have been repaved since its opening in 1984. Whittle Springs Golf Course is the City’s oldest course, opened in 1932.

The two courses combined accommodate more than 55,000 rounds of golf each year. Each course serves as host to middle- and high-school golf teams. Whittle Springs recently implemented a junior golf camp that happens to be in progress this week, just in time for the young golfers to enjoy the new cart paths.

The Knoxville Municipal Golf Course is located at 3925 Schaad Rd. and the Whittle Springs Golf Course is located at 3116 Valley View Dr.
