Rating 71.5
Type Public/Municipal
Two Rivers Golf Course sits in Donelson, east of downtown Nashville and close to such attractions as the Grand Ole Opry, the Opry Mills Shopping Mall and the Nashville International Airport. The eighth hole provides a good vista of the national of the Nashville skyline. Two Rivers Golf Course's back tees offer big tests, but three other tee sets allow golfers to choose lengths appropriate to their levels on this golf course that was originally built way back in 1973 and redesigned in 1991. Two Rivers Golf Course opened a new clubhouse in 2005, with a pro shop, concessions, men's and women's lounges and a cart facility; the patio overlooks the first tee.

Two Rivers is walker-friendly

This municipal course east of Nashville gets a lot of rounds. There are a lot of walkers, given the relatively flat terrain, so be prepared for a longer round.

This course, for the most part, reveals everything to you from the tee box, with a few exceptions. Almost every hole is a dogleg, meaning the course plays much shorter than the yardage listed on the scorecard.

The Bermuda rough bordering the fairways and greens is very thick and balls will tend to sink down, making playing from it a crap shoot. There is also some St. Augustine mixed in at various places throughout, which can really grab the hosel and make for inconsistent ball-striking as well.

Two Rivers’ greatest defense against scoring, however, is the greens. As has been mentioned in other reviews, they were converted to championship Bermuda from Bent, so they are still a little firm. I could not spin a wedge, but found well-struck irons would hold with a few yards of roll out. Many greens are pitched from back to front, requiring approach shots to be left below the hole to avoid 3-putts. Though I was told by a playing partner that putts don’t tend to break as much as they appear to, I found the opposite to be the case. The greens are very grainy and I experienced a lot of pull on cross-grain putts. Those into the grain were quite slow, and those downgrain were extremely fast. I 3-putted four times due to the severe slopes of several greens, like the par-5 third and par-3 sixth.

I preferred the back nine to the front. The holes on the inward half had more character in my opinion.

Though the putting green is quite expansive, there isn’t much of a driving range. There is a faux hole carved out between the 12th hole and 13th tee, where it appears you can warm up and shag your own balls.

The course is very walkable, outside of steep climbs on the 11th and 12th holes, and is reasonable at $26.

Fine Municipal Course

I played in a scramble here so I'm not sure what the cost to play 18 would be on a weekend. The course is laid out well, with several bending fairways. It was in excellent shape with fantastic greens.

Excellent value for the money

We played the course twice and had difficulty reserving getting late starting times, but visibly when arriving there was not that many golfers and many empty holes. On both occasions we started upon arrival more than 45 minutes ahead of our starting time. We felt a lack of integrity and independance. The course layout is really nice and the condtions as well. For the low price it is above average. We enjoyed and had fun to play

Course is in really good shape being winter. The greens were rolling smooth and quick. The greens were very firm and shots would not hold or check, not even full wedge shots. Fairways and rough were very playable.

New greens

First time playing since the reopened the course on Labor Day after completely redoing all of the greens. The greens were in great shape, a little firm but rolled quick. The rough was really thick and hard to find the balls, our group lost multiple balls just off of the fairway because it sat down deep & you would need to step on it to find it.

New Greens

Course just re-opened with new Bermuda greens. I'm not a bermuda-green guy, but they rolled ok and were deceptively fast. Balls ran out past the hole. Having been closed all summer for greens renovation, the rough was very long and healthy. Made for tough conditions if not in the fairway. Some great holes on the back 9. Pace of play was poor. We were a 4some (3 walking), and pushed the 4some in front of us the whole day. Wish the course posted tee times on GolfNow.com, would play more.

Great Conditions

I was a part of a great foursome that booked on golfnow. The course was in excellent condition. My only complaint was on one of the holes on the back 9, the rough on the fringe of the green was very difficult to get my blade through (unlike all the rough on the rest of the course). Great tee boxes, beautiful fairways (well enough to hit the ball fat). If I can find great deals on golfnow for this course, I will surely be back sooner than my last visit.

Great Nashville course

The course is in very good condition. The fairways are spotty on a few holes, but the bunkers are in good shape and the greens are very quick.
