The Golf Capital of Tennessee

  • Gateway to the 82,000-acre Catoosa Wildlife Management Area


  • Home to the Fairfield Glade resort, with its 11 lakes, 5 golf courses, world-class tennis center, and numerous activities and other amenities well-suited to the active retiree.


  • The fourth-largest county in Tennessee (in terms of area—685 square miles), our home sites include rural areas, as well as planned unit developments.


  • Proud to be the county that welcomed the creation of the non-profit Cumberland County Playhouse—designated a major cultural resource by the Tennessee Arts Commission.


  • Site of The Homesteads, a community created by Franklin Roosevelt’s administration to help depression era economically stranded families of miners, timber workers, and farmers to get back on their feet.


  • The source of Crab Orchard stone, which was used in the building of Rockefeller Center in New York City, as well as Elvis Presley’s Graceland’s swimming pool.


  • Within an hour’s drive from 27,700-acre Dale Hollow and the 72.4-mile Watts Bar reservoirs


  • Conveniently located—just 1 hour from Knoxville, 1 ½ hours from Chattanooga, and 2 hours from Nashville. The county is served by two airports—Nashville and Knoxville.
