Fairfield Glade and Fairfield Glade North comprise a huge golf community in the eastern half of Tennessee, with reasonable access to the cities of Nashville, Knoxville and Chatanooga. The golf community has a lot going for it, including five golf courses I have not played but understand are in good condition and nicely arranged (Joe Lee, whose courses we like, designed one of the five). They are on my list for a visit. With 11 lakes, 12 tennis courts, four swimming pools, numerous walking and hiking paths and the obligatory recreation and wellness complexes, Fairfield Glade offers something for just about everyone looking for an active lifestyle.
Active indeed. According to the golf community's ad in Where to Retire magazine (July/August issue), "would you believe you can play an 18 round game on one of our championship golf courses for less than $26!?" By our calculation, that works out to about $1.44 per round.
