About

Holes 18
Type Resort/Public
Style Links
Par 72
Length 6842 yards
Slope 133
Rating 73.1

The Cumberland River gave birth to the Scottish links-style Gaylord Springs Golf Links, a par-72 golf course that provides 18 testing holes that border limestone bluffs and wetlands protected by the feds. The golf course, designed by the former U.S. Open and PGA Champion Larry Nelson, has collected several distinctions over its days.

The big draw on the Gaylord Springs Golf Links is the signature fourth hole, home to the hundred-plus-year-old springhouse that gives the golf course its name.

After a round on the Gaylord Springs Golf Links, head back to the 43,000-square-foot antebellum-style clubhouse to shop, dine, and take in the views of the golf course.

I’ll be back!

The course played well for early in the season. The golf staff were very pleasant, the bar staff, not so much. Almost like we were putting them out by being there. I would highly recommend the golf experience and will be back..Great greens and challenging holes..

Fabulous

Absolute pleasure to play where the pro’s have. Once the host site for the Bell South Classic the course is as if the pro’s are coming tomorrow. Tight fairways but emmaculate greens. Definitely worth the time and money, which is not over the top

Wet but fun

Super wet and muddy. Given the storms I understand! This course is amazing with fantastic service. The lay out is great and will challenge your game. A true links course with rolling hills. I will return when I come back.

People are fantastic here. Bravo!

Great day in November! Course well maintained. You could sense the pride the staff has in their club. Met several members: friendly and welcoming to out of town guests. If I lived in the area, I would definitely take advantage of the annual membership. Tremendous value for this experience.

Great course and a great time

Played in a threesome. The course was not busy on an October Wednesday so pace of play was basically up to us. The last time I played this course, the rough was way too high which made the course extremely difficult if you missed the fairway. Today it was just right.

The course was in excellent shape all around. Tee boxes, fairways were very good with very few bare spots. The greens were outstanding.

The staff was extremely friendly at the bag drop, pro shop, and 19th hole.

My only complaint is there is OB on the interior of the course due to a driving range. I did not hit into the OB area, but I have a problem with that interior OB in general.

To sum it up, this is one of my favorite courses in Nashville and it didn’t disappoint today. Thanks!

Best Nashville Course on GolfNow

Course was in outstanding condition. Played 18 holes in 4:30 on a Friday morning. Greens were tricky to read but very fair. Fairway lies were excellent. Rough was decent height and not too challenging. Great track and worth every penny to play it. I have paid 2-3 times as much to play similar courses. Scenery is outstanding as well.
