    Where is the course on Watts Bar? I will be going down in a few weeks, staying in the Spring City Area. I have been down there several times, and I never remember seeing a course on Watts Bar.

    I found one on Google Earth. Its between the peninsula and two islands, south south West of Goat Island. The image I have looks like some balls are missing, but I see some remnants. Do some Recon? and maybe bring some bouys? I will have a few when I go.

    I live south of Watts Bar on Chickamauga Lake. A few years ago I hunted down that Watts Bar course. When I found it, it was a loose floater with buoys missing in about five feet of water. It wasn't skiable at that time. The water conditions aren't bad for a public place to ski if the course was maintained.

    Thanks for the invite. If we plan an excursion to Chatt, My wife and I may take you up on it. I ski into November most years in NE Ohio. Tenn temps are likely to be an improvement.

    Follow up: The course is there and is skiable. It was mostly straight and in a decent location. The south shut down area was in about 3' of water with a lot of weeds, the north end was deeper though. It was a little windy yesterday, but my son took his first slalom set since nationals. I would suggest getting there early in the AM to avoid wind and other boat traffic.
