Gaylord Springs Golf Links
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.

Not worth the price tag
This was my 4th or 5th time playing Gaylord - and the course has generally been in good shape previously.
However - this was my first time playing during the winter and this experience will likely be enough to keep me from returning.
I understand winter golf is a blessing - and conditions can be rough this late in the year, but Gaylord charging almost the full rate for a tee time, to hit off of questionable fairways at best - only to have the ball rocket off the spray-paint covered greens (which were rolling about an 18) was not a fun experience.
It was not shocking that we were one of only about 10 groups on property.
Again - understand conditions can be rough but adjust your rates accordingly. $84 for a round and range balls is preposterous with the course in that shape.
Excellent layout. The greens were smooth, true and fast. Course was in great fall shape. I have played this course many times and it always plays great and is in great shape.
Reviews said good greens, so I had to see for myself
I was in Nashville for the weekend and wanted to golf before I flew home. I did some research in the are and the reviews about the greens are what brought me to the course. These greens are amazing better than some country clubs in California for sure, true and super quick. I mean super quick downhill and decent uphill. Fast, firm but held well. If you want to play a course that has challenging greens, then you need to visit this place. The layout isn't too hard, even from the tips. The difficulty lies in the green speeds. They have some moguls that remind me of a Pete DYE course. If I ever go back to visit Nashville, this will be on my list.
I read the reviews and the greens were very fast. They were in great shape and the course was good it was windy that day would definitely play again
Starting with the staff, practice facilities, course, on-course staff, total experience is always fantastic!
James and Harry, Tim, Steve and the crew are the best!
The fastest greens I have ever played. The layout is varied and interesting. It was cart path only and the group in front of us was extremely slow and there was no marshal to be found. Play it on a weekday.
This was our first time playing this course, and conditions were excellent. Greens are challenging but roll true. We would play again.
Great course, beautiful scenery, green and fairway conditions were excellent
Course was in great condition, especially after having had significant rain the night before. Challenging layout.
Truly enjoyed playing the course. The course was challenging and in very good condition. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Great course, but difficult
Came from out of town, played on a very hot and humid day. Rented clubs, top of the line, brand new clubs for myself and wife, a lefty. Staff could not have been nicer.
Links style course, so you had good and bad bounces and luck plays a big part. Tons of bunkers and greens were perfect, but huge, mean and fast. Like missing 2’ putt fast.
Overall, loved the course, just not the heat and my score
Great course for a fun round!
This course is challenging but fair! Greens are in great shape and quick. Entire course is in great shape. A very fun layout and a great place to make your first career hole in one (which I did on #13).
Not a true links course, but completely legit!
This place is mint. Green are perfect and hole set ups are awesome. Best round I’ve played since Spy Glass. Thank you for having us!
My Favorite Course Yet!
I played here recently and absolutely loved everything about this course. When you pull in the staff is there to help get your clubs out and offer range balls. The practice facility is one of the best I have ever seen. The course condition overall were incredible. Undulating fairways, fast greens, wind, and lots of water is what this course has to offer. The best part is, it is less than fifteen minutes away from the airport! I would definitely recommend this course to anyone in the area.
Best in Nashville
Was blown away with the course and facility! Course design was awesome. Conditions phenomenal. Staff outstanding.
First time playing it and I want to get back and play again. So many interesting holes. Elevation change, mounding, trees, and rock formations make this course a must play.
Worth every penny
Just a beautiful place from the drive in all the way to the club house I was blown away with this course. Greens are in great shape fairways so nice I didn’t want to hit my ball.
