Type Public/Municipal
East Nashville's Shelby Golf Course is historic, opening way back in 1924, making it Nashville's first municipal golf course, and it's a beauty, offering 18 holes of golf over rolling hills on a good-looking landscape in the beautiful confines of Shelby Park. Bermuda Tif Dwarf greens became a part of the golf course in 2006, and golfers of all levels will be able to golf a round on this golf course, which has hosted the School Days Junior Golf Tournament, Tennessee's longest-running golf tournament. The par-72 Shelby Golf Course measures 6,079 yards from the Blue tees, though ladies have the option of playing to 4,873 yards on the Red tees. A round of golf kicks off on a par-4 hole that comes in at 345 yards from the Blue tee. The long hole here is 16th, a par-5 that measures 528 yards from the Blue tee. A round of golf on the Shelby Golf Course concludes on a par-4 hole that measures 364 yards from the Blue tee.

Rude management

Looks like a fun course but I wont be back to find out. The management and staff were unacceptabley rude, and left without playing. I was not the only one with issues with the staff.

I would not play the course, is not worth of my time. Course layout is ok , short, but the green condition is like you are putting on the back of hairy wooly mammoth. Lot of dead spots and the maintenance guys doing their job on prime tee time.

Fun...but....

Had an early morning tee time, got there extra early, no one on the course and no one scheduled before my time, yet the person checking me in wouldn't let me go out until my scheduled time. When that time arrived, they made me wait for the others in my put together foursome who were running a bit late. We ended up behind a group instead of having an open course in front of us, and that group was EXTREMELY slow and not interested in having us play through. Bottom line, fun course, frustrating experience. I left after 12 holes. I'll think twice before coming back.

Lovely course

Lovely course but difficult at certain holes. With the hills and valleys it's was hard to judge your distances.
