Detailed description

Pickwick Landing State Park Golf Course is a Public 18 hole golf course located in Pickwick Dam, Tennessee, close to the border of Mississippi and Alabama.

The Pickwick Landing State Park Golf Course was opened in May 1973 and is a favorite of the locals as well as destination golfers.

Pickwick Landing was a riverboat stop dating from the 1840s. In the 1930s during the depression, the site was chosen for one of the Tennessee Valley Authority’s dams on the Tennessee River. What comprises the park today was once the living area for the TVA construction crews and their families. The TVA Village, better known as Pickwick Village was located where the Post Office, Park Office and day use area are now located. A Boy Scout Lodge was located where the old inn is located. The State of Tennessee purchased all 681 acres of Pickwick from TVA in 1969. Since that time additional land has been bought to enlarge the park.
