Located 100 yards from the green on hole no. 1 at renowned Sweetens Cove Golf Course, No Laying Up has created the perfect getaway for avid golfers. The Birdhouse is a  six bedroom ranch-style house perched high above the golf course and is perfect for large groups looking to stay and play golf at one of America's most unique golf desitnations.

Within The Birdhouse, patrons will find plenty of space to rest, relax, and enjoy time with friends and family after a great day of golf. The house places an emphasis on comfort and function but was also designed as a real world extension of No Laying Up's community of avid golfers. Upstairs, each room is designed by a different member of No Laying Up to spark some cheap laughs and but also create a sense of familiarity. 

Outside the house, architect Rob Collins, the co-designer of Sweetens Cove, has created "the 10th hole" a teebox measuring 110 yards to the center of no. 1 green to give visitors a chance to play a little bit of "bonus golf" while hanging out on the laid back front deck overlooking the course. 

The basement of The Birdhouse has two additional guest rooms, and "Horace's Place," a man cave named honoring Horace, the longtime owner of the house. Horace watched the entire transformation from Sequatchie Valley GC to Sweetens Cove play out in real time from his front porch. The basement unit will rent separately once it comes online post-renovation.

You'll be glad you did

We came for a 2-day, 2-night, 6-buddies weekend. - The house is everything you need and would undoubtedly be comfortable for 8. - We were pleasantly surprised how much common hangout space there was. - The location is unbeatable, of course. - Sweetens is better than what you've read/seen online. - We ended up settling a few hours worth of wagers on the Yard hole. It's one of a kind. Pro tip: If you park a car just right on the driveway, the headlights will illuminate 1 green for a true "it's much darker out here than it looks on TV" experience.

Perfect Setup

Having the house just makes an already great trip infinitely better. Getting to the course consists of walking across a street and up the 1st hole from the green (peep hole locations early). Loaded up the fridge upon arrival. Made food/drink reloads seamless in between unlimited 9's. Hit your approach, run up the driveway, grab a few bevs if you're walking or refill the cooler if you're in carts, and then go three jack. Beds were actually incredibly comfortable but don't plan on sleeping much as the adrenaline high never subsides. Just booked a return trip for next spring. Was hoping to keep the benefits of the house a secret for selfish reasons but Tron just asked me to give a review...We love Sweetens for what it is but our group seems to have settled on the opinion that we'll only go as long as we get the house as well.

Fix 3 ballmarks every time you play the 10th hole.

Stayed this past weekend with a group of Refugees and the Birdhouse could not possibly have been more perfect for a weekend of golf. The guys really knocked it out of the park getting the place ready to go. The decor is fun and well done and the place is just what you need - a space to hang, a bed to sleep in and even nice cold A/C when you are grabbing a snack or drink in between loops at Sweetens. Will absolutely be back as soon as possible and expect this to be an overwhelming success. Great for any group that wants to check out Sweetens and would recommend Sewanee up the road for an additional day of golf - different types of courses, but both the types of places that just have you at hello. Let me just add, that coffee on the porch watching them cut the double pins on the 1 green while the sun comes up and the mist hovers over the mountains in the back ground was spiritual. #getinvolved with the Birdhouse - you won't regret it.
