Ted Rhodes Golf Course
Ted Rhodes Golf Course sits on the Cumberland River's North Nashville banks, and was originally named the Cumberland Golf Course, after that body of water, back when it only had nine holes, first laid out way back in 1953. A 1992 redesign added nine more holes, and nowadays golfers get 18 holes of links-style golf, complete with lakes and bunkers that make for good times. Big greens provide big targets for approaches on this walkable golf course.
The par-72 Ted Rhodes Golf Course measures 6,669 yards from the Blue tees, and offers a fourth set of tees that play to 5,010 yards for the ladies. A round of golf kicks off big on a par-5 hole that comes in at 555 yards from the Blue tee, one of two long holes, with the back nine also opening on a 534-yard hole. With that in mind, the golf course concludes with a relative whimper, on a par-4 hole that measures just 432 yards from the Blue tee.
Something to look for on the Ted Rhodes Golf Course is the fauna: Turtles, fish, muskrats and beavers all make their homes in the golf course's lakes and river.

Not A Bad Course!
I played here recently and thought it was not a bad course at all. The tee boxes were well-groomed, and the fairways were as well. The rough had dead spots and crabgrass but was still playable. The greens weren't the fastest, but they rolled extremely well. My only complaint is that hole 10 and 11 are half a mile apart from each other. It's not a big deal if you are riding, but it is if you are walking. Overall, I enjoyed playing here and will be back soon.
Super fun and challenging course
Koran if water and thick vegetation make this course a challenge. Super beautiful location
Course is enjoyable but had a terrible experience. Will not come back.
Staff allowed three groups of 5 to play their own scramble in front of me and my partner. After about a 3 hour front 9, one guy from the fivesome in front of us said we could play through. As I teed off, the rest of his crew came running from the clubhouse yelling at us saying that we couldn’t play through. They were also heckling my partner who is new to the game after he topped his ball into the water. Later the group in front of them approached us and asked how we got behind them and said that they absolutely will not let us play through and that our only option is to skip some home holes and then circle back to play the ones we missed.
It absolutely killed our experience there and we will not come back to this course. I’ve heard of this sort of thing happening to other people at this course as well.
Also, the guy at the counter acted like it was putting him out so much to have to type in my card number after my magnetic strip wasn’t swiping.
Seems like Ted Rhodes perpetuates the narrative that golf is a closed sport for a certain type of person and doesn’t really care to make a point to welcome outsiders that aren’t already a part of their circle. Next time we will be going to either McCabe or Shelby.
The course was decent. Did not know where to go on hole #8. The course was not as good as 2 Rivers. Very under stocked Pro Shop. The hot dogs were old. Would not drive across town for this course
West Nashville’s Best Kept Secret
Fun layout that’s challenging, but fair. New greens held up through the wet winter and are in fantastic shape. Fairways getting greener by the day. Friendly, accommodating staff has made me a Ted Rhodes loyalist for life. No question, best value for the money.
best green around. every green in excellent condition.
Well kept track
Always well maintained. Fun course but slow pace as usual
Looking forward to playing the course in the summer. Due to much rain, it was very wet. Doesn't drain very well but enjoyed it
Another great day at Rhodes!
The staff was great this morning. They welcomed us to the site and even offered to get us out early. The best greens in the city!
Greens were very firm and very fast but putted true; fairways in good condition; tee boxes a little ragged.
No marshall and a fivesome of partying inept golfers were very slow.
Overall good value for the price on GolfNow.
The staff was very friendly and actually allowed us to tee off 30 minutes early. The course was quite challenging and the greens were excellent considering it hadn't rained in awhile.
We moved along nicely for 13 holes until we were held up by a sixsome that has allowed to play together. It held up at least 5 groups and it took over and hour to play the last 4 holes. Bummer..... we had seen a ranger earlier but none on the back nine.
Course very well kept. Very friendly staff.weather perfect. Burger from the grill excellent. Played this course several times. Always go back
The work and money has been put in to this course.
I was impressed with this course in general but especially since the last time I played it last fall. The course is in overall great shape and the new greens roll perfectly. Not too fast and not too slow. The only negative is that tee time groupings arnt enforced very well so groupings slowed down the pace a lot. Twosomes were splitting off from foursomes, etc and it backed it up.
This is a nice track. Has some challenges but mostly straight forward. Around 6700 from the tips. Yardages for holes are not very accurate so you need a yardage device. Greens are pretty good, and the roll pretty well. For a municipal course it’s really solid. Well taken care of and a fun course. Worth playing.
Fun and challenging
The course was a little dry and the greens were very firm and fast. A good selection differing type holes and with all the water you had to hit it straight. I enjoyed playing this course and like many look forward to playing it again now that I know the nuisances of the course.
