Toqua, the first of three courses in Tellico Village, opened in 1987 and was extensively renovated in 2008. The Toqua Golf Course features a classic design that is considered one of the best golf tracks in Tennessee. The course is built into an exquisite natural setting with several holes playing alongside Tellico Lake and others winding through hills and valleys.
Toqua is a beautiful golf course cut through a forest on Tellico Lake. You have everything from tree-lined holes to a links setting on the lake. The genius of the course is that it is playable for all levels of golfers, whether you are a scratch golfer or a beginner. It is a championship level golf course that stre...tches to 7,049 yards from the tips and can play as short as 4,201 yards from the “play it forward” tees. Toqua was nominated to Golf Digest as the best new course in 1987.
The Toqua course offers a driving range, short-game practice area and practice putting green. It has a brand-new clubhouse that opened in 2019, as well as a pavilion that is used for tournaments, banquets, and other large gatherings and events. The new clubhouse features a Golf Pro Shop and sports bar themed restaurant that is popular for causal dining and provides a spacious veranda for post-play food and refreshments.
