Amazing course

I almost don't want to write this review because I don't want everyone to know about this place.
Everything, from the owners and management, to the GPS carts, to the practice range and green, to the course itself is amazing. There are times after a big rain that areas become a bit wet. For a hilly course on a river you almost expect that.
Pace of play is amazing. I play very fast. I can get a round in in about 2 hours by myself. People will always let you play through.
The carts are amazing, with built in GPS and bluetooth speakers. They even have golf cart scooters now. I haven't tried that, but I want to. The best in social distancing.
The only thing I can cut them on a little is course conditions, and it's not their fault, it is just that rainy time of year. But everything else that they are doing is working great, The fairways are easy to hit off of. The greens are fast, but nice. The strange part of this course is 9 and 10 are nowhere near the club house, so you can't stop at the turn.
I do wish they had some more expendables in the pro shop, could just be that time of year. But I'd like to have a choice of more than 3 kinds of balls. Some hats would be nice, etc. But knowing that I bring what I need anyways.

Incredible Value

I usually play the municipal courses in central Nashville, but this will be my go to course from now on. Our foursome had an awesome time for many reasons. First off, the owner, Jonathan, is an excellent host- he and his staff at the bar are genuinely happy to accommodate you and make sure you’re having a great experience. The club house and the practice facility have everything you need, and the GPS carts are a huge plus! The course is fun to play, with a range of bluffs, rock walls, water, challenging bunkers, and natural undulations, which encourage the player to think more about course management and less about hitting every shot as far as possible. Since the course is just outside of Nashville, you rarely feel rushed and can truly enjoy being in nature, away from noisy highways. We will continue coming back because of the hospitality, the course, and the great value. Nashville National deserves the support of people local to Nashville and tourists as well.

Having Fun

I play this course couple times a week. It always plays through without hold ups, staff is always friendly and willing to help with all questions. And the VERY BEST HAMBURGERS you will ever eat on a golf course. The greens are always in great shape along with the fairways. Just a Absolutely Gorgeous view and very relaxing course to play.

Course in great shape

The course is in great shape. Leaves are dropping but they are not much of a problem. Sand traps could use some work but I try to avoid them anyway!

ADD TO YOUR LIST

If you are looking for a new course to challenge your shotmaking ability, then give NNGL a try. Yes, it's the same Highland Rim track, but it's got a new.owner that I can say personally is committed to making this course a regional destination. If you haven't been here or it's been a few years, make the trek. It's not that far out of town and once there, you feel like you have no one around you for miles. The pace of play was great. Staff friendly. I will be back and look forward to seeing how the course improves. Back nine has a lot of fun holes.

Great Course & Friendly Staff

This is the old Highland Rim, but the last year new manitgment has really improved the course. Play it couple times a week. It's well maintained and again great service. Love the GPS system on all carts.

Excellent Course, but bring a Novel to Read while you wait

This course was in very good condition. The fairways are zoysia grass and were lush. The greens are MiniVerde Bermuda grass, and while a little slick and crusty, putted true.
The course is not very long, but you must hit the ball straight. When I play it again, I'll use a long- to medium-iron off the tee for several of the par 4s.
The only real complaint here is the pace of play. We waited on every tee box to hit. ALL 18 holes. Took us 4 hours, 50 minutes to finish our round. In some instances, two groups were on the tee box waiting to play.
I'll play this course again, and hopefully they will have a ranger keeping the play moving.

Enjoyed the course

Course was in good condition, still needs more work to be really nice. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Grab a yardage book if you play course for the first time. Fairways are nice and greens are quick. Enjoyed our round there, will go back
