Staff is great greens & Fairways are good. Warning

Don't miss the fairway it will take a search party to find the ball and you odds of hitting it good luck. Rough is ridiculous .

Smyrna 9/11/18after

After playing 18 holes with a time booked on GolfNow we inquired about playing an additional 9 and were told it is normally $11 but since we booked on GolfNow it would be the regular 9 hole rate of $20. A note to course manager/owners. If the business relationship between you and GolfNow is proving not to be beneficial then you might want to reconsider. I have met individuals that I continue to play with that have booked on GolfNow and we play several times a week While some of the discounted tee times at less busy hours may not be as lucrative as regularly booked rounds they serve an important function in building “course loyalty “. Making GolfNow customers feel less valued figures heavily into where I will book my foursome (or more) next time.

Needs Work

This course could be great but they always seem to cut the fairways to short. Greens are always in great shape. The staff is friendly but it is a little pricey for the course. The biggest complaint is the pace of play. It is slow so be prepared for a 5 hour round. They have a marshal but all he does is ride around looking for golf balls. He never tells the slow group to speed up. If you want to play in 4 hours or less do not play here.

Caters to Men

Been playing on a ladies league at Smyrna for 6 years. This year it seems to be a problem getting us out on the course. Example: letting public tee times go off too close to our appointed time. It has been frustrating and discouraging to me. I don’t feel welcome there. Did I say our league also puts on the largest ladies tournament in middle TN there every May, raising money for Rutherford county charities like Wounded Warriors. So long, farewell, I’ll go play somewhere else!!

This is what happens

I play this course every Tuesday morning in a senior golf men’s league. This course is in the worst shape i have ever seen in my 13 years of playing here. The cost is low but unfortunately they don’t have the staff onboard to keep it up. The greens are so-so and the fairways are green in some places. There is a lot of dirt and rock where there needs to be grass. As for off the fairway is cut grass clumped up everywhere. It’s awful and slows down pace of play. You can loose your ball in an instant. Everyone in my league has something bad to say about the shape it’s in. Smyrna needs to get a grip before it’s too late. I’d hate to see this old Air Forse course go from bad to worse.
