Sweetens Cove is a handmade treasure in golf. And, so are the items in our first-ever Sweetens Cove Handmade Winter Art Show. We’ve invited 4 artists, creatives and makers to help us celebrate the beauty and story of The Little Course That Could. This limited edition series features 100+ one-of-a-kind collectibles and pieces that we wanted to share with you.
A portion of the proceeds from each purchase will be donated to Fairways for Freedom. A recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit, Fairways for Freedom strives to help combat-injured military veterans assimilate back into society through holistic initiatives and through the game of golf.
If golf course design is art, then Sweetens Cove is a special little masterpiece. And, the King-Collins architecture team are masters.
From the beginning, the daring design of Rob Collins has created a track of awe and beauty, challenge and reward. In this extraordinary art series, Rob has hand-sketched the 9 holes that comprise a golf course that has been called cathartic, adventurous, and “the future of golf.”
In 2019, GolfWeek named it #49 on its list of Top 100 Modern Courses and the only 9-holer on the list. Rob’s personal notebook of drawings are available for the first time for you to enjoy, display, collect and remind you again about our memorable valley in Tennessee.
We all wish we had a fraction of the inspired creativity and vibrant imagination of Dave, whose painting career stretches back all of just four years. In that short span, he has become a wonderful artistic voice for golf, sharing his eye and talent with the rest of us.
Based in Charlotte, Dave is (remarkably) a beginner golfer and painter, who has discovered that each can make you enjoy the beauty around you, laughs with friends and an occasional bad stroke.
From salt marshes to fly fishing and now golf, Dave’s works bring visual joy from a special journey. Dave has said that he could sit out at Sweetens Cove every day for a month and never paint the same image or paint the same view a different way, every day. Dave, we’ve got a spot for you anytime! A special thanks to Dave for his warm spirit and for bringing Sweetens to life on his canvas.
Our good friends at Lie + Loft, by their own admission, are creators, homebodies, adventurers, and golfers. No wonder we get along so well! At Sweetens, we’ve always been drawn to their artistic creations and sense of style that tells a unique story about special places.
Our King-Collins design is one-of-a-kind over nine dramatic holes in the Sequatchie Valley, captured brilliantly by Lie +Loft with sketching, color and graphics that delight – and make you want to get out and play. Enjoy this special edition and thank you, Lie + Loft.
Andy Scott’s TriStar Golfworks is a one-man workshop based in Franklin, TN, with every piece crafted by hand from materials ranging from copper, brass, and stainless steel, to exotic hardwoods from all over the world.
The Ghost Tree markers are a way to celebrate the intricate-simplicity of Sweetens Cove, while keeping in mind the craftsmanship it takes to build such an incredible and beautiful venue for the game we all love. From the bag it comes in, to the individual hammer strikes, this marker was done entirely by hand, and no two are alike.
