About

Holes 9
Type Public/Municipal
Style Executive
Par 28
Length 1153 yards
Slope N/A
Rating N/A

VinnyLinks offers nine holes of par-28 golf over 1,150 yards at Shelby Park. Three tee sets allow golfers to choose their distances to the Bermuda greens and a driving range with mats and grass, practice green, and bunkered short-game zone to let them warm up. The public is welcome, but this is one golf course for the kids, who get priority n weekdays during the summer and after school in the autumn.

VinnyLinks was built in 2001 and offers a short season from late spring to mid-autumn.

Because the VinnyLinks is a public golf course, golfers who can get on when the course isn't packed with budding juniors can golf a round for dirt-cheap.

Fun 9 hole mostly Par 3 course

Fun little course, it’s ran by the city of Nashville so don’t expect it to be immaculate.
First hole is a PAR 4 every other is a Par 3.. Hole 5 is a little confusing because the way the tee is backs up to Hole 7. More than one person shot from tee box 5 to hole 7. Greens were alright but dry due to heatwave right now.

Driving range may be the cheapest in Nashville $4 for a bucket of balls. This time of year you hit off grass, other times you hit off mats.

Friendly staff, great for kids, shame GolfNow takes bookings when the course is closed.

Had a fun round with my son and will definitely return. Just need Golf Now to check it's information before taking bookings on a closed course.

No golf played

I took an Uber to this location from my hotel. Two kids were sitting outside the pro shop . I asked if this was where I confirm my tee time. They were confused and sent me down the road. After walking around I realized that that I was at the right area . I went back and spoke to them again and they informed me that the pro shop had flooded and that there were not clubs available. Waste of time and cost of two Uber rides. Golfnow needs to update their courses.

Donald Ross gem

This jewel was designed by Donald Ross- never built- and 80 years later his plans we're found and the course built replicating his greens..Under $10 to play, family friendly, The First Tee clubhouse is special, range is short but playable- 20 minutes from Titans stadium
