Located just 20 minutes north of Nashville, Country Hills Golf Club in Hendersonville is not only conveniently situated, it also offers a challenging round for golfers of all skill levels. The narrow fairways demand accuracy, especially on the front nine's tricky par 4s. The holes on the back nine are somewhat more open but those benefits are offset by a variety of well-placed hazards and hillier terrain that make it the more challenging of the two nines. Playing with someone who is familiar with the course or at least thoroughly studying the scorecard beforehand would be helpful. Golfers should brace themselves for the especially treacherous second and 15th holes. To prepare for this formidable test, golfers can warm-up on the large driving range and putting green.

Scheduled 36 holes, 5 days prior. A bet had to be settled on neutral territory, and it was definitely settled!! Hopefully he’s learned once and for all, don’t mess with a short knocker.

Way too many blind shots for me, even if I knew the course.

Fairways just plugged, greens were good.

Staff was great. Conditions were wet, storms came through for 2 days, course actually took it quite well.

Thanks to the staff for getting us a dry cart to start, and for letting us go off earlier for the 2nd 18

Short course, tight fairways, smaller greens-that are tricky, keep this course from being very vulnerable.

Enjoyed the rounds, but not sure I’ll be driving from the south side of Nashville to play a course with this many blind shots. That was frustrating, especially since it was path only, which was perfectly, ok according to conditions.

Enjoy your round!!

With the hills and some narrow fairways it is sometimes hard to keep ball in play so you play your best or else. Good course all around. The greens are looking good.

Traveled to Nashville and explored the useful Golfadvisor app to find this course, which met our expectations. I was surprised at the slope rating. The course had several challenging holes. We would play here again. We were paired with 2 great guys who were local to the area and played this course many times.

Golf course had several areas of standing water. Poor practice facilities. Grass was dormant from winter and dry fairways ( which isn’t the courses fault). Greens were good.

There are some holes where being in the fairway is an absolute must due to the elevation changes. Course was in decent shape considering all of the recent heavy rains (greens had just been aerated). The beginning of the back 9 has a few holes that play very similarly to one another, but the holes on the rest of the course all feel very unique. A bit short from the tips compared to some other area courses, but the elevation changes balance some of that out.

At 6800yds it was a very good test with necessary carries on several holes and several elevated greens that require attention on club selection. A very good play at a very good price.
