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.

The staff was courteous and informative. The greens are in the process of being worked on. There were multiple holes where digging had been done around the greens. Regardless, they are playable.

Early season golf is hard to judge a course. Greens are pretty nice for the most part. Bunkers were playable. Course needs some work overall but with all the rain we've had that is expected. Will play course again during peak season.

Course was a little sticky on the old (back) nine, but it was due to all of the recent rain and the low-lying fairways were unable to drain and dry completely...other than that, completely happy!

Serves us right for trying to play when it had been raining forever. I looked like a mud ball when finished with 9 we didn't even play the back nine as we were told it was even better.

Booked online and arrived over an hour early; there wasn’t much activity so I asked to go out early which was approved, but a threesome of older gentlemen had just gotten to the tee box so I joined them; very slow round due to our slow play which could have been avoided had they sent me out earlier on my own; staff was very friendly but not too concerned about pace of play; course was in good condition considering winter season; greens were green and rolled well despite many ball marks that needed repaired; challenging, strategic layout.

Glad to see the everyone came out to play but I got scared stand on the tees knowing balls could be coming from different directions. Nothing did but I didn’t feel safe playing the course for the first time. I quit on 10th after a father and daughter came out of nowhere in front of me on 8th.
