About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 6842
Slope 133
Rating 74.0
Type Resort
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.

Fair course for wide range of skill of golfers and ladies

I was paired with lower handicappers and was able to keep up with them. Also, many courses have ladies tees which are not thoughtfully placed, but this one appears to be well laid out from the forward tees.

Nice and Different

True links style course with a tremendous amount of mounding that often sends your ball in unexpected directions (even in the fairway, but more often to the right or left). The greens had been punched in the past week or two, so they were not running true, but it is hard to criticize them for maintaining their investment. Carts had GPS, but on the tees on the par 3s, you definitely needed your rangefinder.

Beautiful Course

The course was in great condition. It was really a beautiful round of golf. Some pins were a little tricky because of a tournament being held there but still fun.

Just a heads up. The greens were recently aerated and they still have a couple of weeks to go before they are smooth again.

Great links course

Course was beautiful and well maintained. Greens were recently aerated but were in great condition. Pace of play was a little slow but we were only a twosome so I can’t complain. Beer cart was great and also had snacks. If you’re in the area I would give it a go.
