Fun Yet Challenging Course!
I recently played here in a golf tournament and was very impressed. The bermuda greens were smooth and in great condition considering how cold the winter has been. The fairways were well cut and had no dirt patches. The driving range and practice green were also in great condition. Overall, I think this course is great for the price and would certainly recommend it.
After a very wet start to the year, the course, including the greens were very payable. Layout is challenging, yet not tricked up.
I was very pleased with the greens and the challenge of the course. I wished the outside rest rooms were open and the snack bar, however, the staff was friendly and accommodating.
Great course in very good condition
Both the fairways and greens were in great condition and despite the course being pretty busy we moved at a decent pace. Only a few holes demand pinpoint accuracy off the tee so as long as you're semi straight this will be a fun round. Greens were rolling true at a med/fast pace. Really enjoyed my round. It's a must play course.
lack of course policing
Played this course today and was disappointed that there was no course marshal on the course. I got behind a threesome that was all over the course. Every time I waited for them to get off the green before I played, I would catch up to them at the next tee box and have to wait for them to get at least 3 strokes out before I could tee off. They would not let me play through. I actually had a threesome (female) catch up with me by the last 3 holes. A course marshal might have helped with this issue. It took over 4.5 hours to play 18 holes.
Definitely a must play course, it's a well laid out course,absolutely beautiful scenery
Montgomery Bell is a solid track
This course has a challenging layout for all levels of golfers. From the tips you need to be able to work the ball all 3 ways, left to right, right to left and of course straight. Conditions of the greens were very good. Fairways had plenty of grass but due to the lack of rain / watering they were very firm so plan on the ball rolling out a ways. The ladies tee boxes could use some work. If you like a semi mountain course, tree lined fairways and a good challenge it is worth the drive and the money. Take bug spray and drink plenty of water. The trees block the wind on most holes.
Underwhelming & Average
Maybe I expected a bit too much for a Tennessee State Park golf course, but at the time I played, this was the top reviewed course on GolfAdvisor for the Nashville area.
The course: bland, lifeless holes without much character or true design. Not particularly challenging. The conditions: average at best. Current rate near $46 is too high for the current conditions. Greens were abnormally slow
Staff was friendly and I am sure everyone working there is making the place as good as it can be, but the course is, for the most part, average.
That said, we saw plenty of wildlife (turkey, deer, etc.) and there were some pretty holes with nice views. But, I wouldn't say this is anywhere near the top course in the Nashville area, but rather, a course slightly better than the average municipal course.
Had a great time
Great course. Some kill in the fairways but all and all a good time and worth driving to Burns. Lots of wildlife and beautiful
Greens had recently been aerated which wasn’t publicized and there was no reduction in price due to them being in bad shape. Fairways had several bare spots as well. Second time for playing this course and have been disappointed both times . Probably will not play again.
Solid Course in State Park
Very picturesque course, winding through the hilly state park. Great pace of play. A challenging but forgiving course as well. Great play for the price.
The fairways were in pretty good shape. Some of the “rough” areas around the greens were still pretty bare perhaps to to the drawn out, wet, winter that seemed to last forever this year. I only played the back 9 but these were some of the best greens I’ve played on anywhere. A few appeared to not have even a single blemish. I’m anxious to play here again.
Spring is bringing the course to perfection
The greens are in and fast but very receptive. The fairways are still coming in but very very thin with a lot of muddy spots from the weather. This has also caused the rough to be not so rough which makes the course wide open.
Always an awesome day at Montgomery Bell. Conditions were good considering the weather that’s been through here the last month. I will now wait until everything is bloomed out.
A must play!
Great Day on the course
Weather was nice and even though it 90 degree on the fairways, the course was in very good shape. Greens were a little slower than usual, but rolled true. Montgomery Bell is always a great course to play.
