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.

I was told, when moving to the area, that this was not a good course. I beg to differ. Greens were in great shape. Fairways had a few small weeds growing, but really didn’t effect the shots. A few real challenging tee shots make it a solid course to play.

This was the first time playing Smyrna in 2018. It will also be the last, unless it’s free. I walked up to the counter, and the guy checking me in just stared at me. I broke the ice first, with, how are you. I told him we had a tee time for 12:30. He asked, what’s your name. I told him, and he said he didn’t have anyone at 12:30, luckily it’s open. I told him I called on Friday evening and he said they must have booked me on Saturday instead of Sunday. Strike 1 and 2, and I haven’t even paid yet. Strike 3 came, when I realized I was playing on a dirt path for $42.00 per person. My wife and I were trying to enjoy Mother’s Day golfing, the course conditions were awful. The pace of play was great. Only because, nobody wants to play the course. Do not waste your money.

The fairways barely have any grass. Majority of approach shots are off of hard dirt and almost impossible to find a reasonable lie throughout the whole course. Also, the only course I’ve seen in the area that is still hitting on mats on the range. Extremely overpriced for the lack of effort going into taking care of the course. The greens have improved since the last time I’ve played there which is the only reason the rating is not 1 Star but still feel 2 stars is a little generous.

I have hit on the range a bunch & the putting green but never played until today. The staff is friendly as always & the putting green was also in good shape like normal. Got on the 1st tee & then found the fairway. The fairway on number 1 was very bare, as was almost every hole on the entire course. Most of the time is was better to be in the rough so you can find some grass to hit off of. The greens were in great shape, just as the putting green led on. It'll be a while before I pay to play this course again, not until the fairways have grass growing.

Few things: I played with a beginner woman. We played scramble style from the red tees, together. I'm typically a not-quite-tips player, but I'm comfortable up to 6600-6800 yards. These red tees were incredibly short - even for red tees. While this inhibits my review a little in that I didn't play the course the way I normally would, I think it's a good thing overall . She loved that she/we had the chance to make par on just about every hole with an ok drive and an ok 2nd shot. There wasn't much around as far as water or hazards. Simple, straight forward, no frills. Some negatives. GPS takes you miles out of the way and it's a bit confusing. The layout seems very basic. The fairways are pretty beat up even for this time of year. Some real positives though. The greens were in awesome shape. Bunkers too. The people were nice. The pace was Amazing. We played midday on a beautiful Saturday and expected logjam, but it was incredibly smooth. I think overall, it was an awesome experience for a beginner and a really good value. If you're after something fancy and pretty - Smyrna's not where it's at. But for fun, low pressure value? We'll definitely be coming back.

Since it is early spring, the grounds are still brown and hard. And the location is quite windy. But, the fairways are straight and this is a good course for most golfers to play.

You can not bring any coolers or your own beverages to this course, but you can give a $10 deposit and they let you use one of their coolers if you want.

I will go back again.

I've been playing this course for several years. I love it because it's just challenging enough for simple enough for me to have fun. I'm not a very good golfer but love the game. The staff is wonderful and the course is always in good shape. And, the price is very reasonable. My friends and I usually play here at least once or twice a month.... that's how much we love it.

I rated this course awhile ago, and gave it a three star. Today, after play, the manager "Hal" asked me to talk with him a bit about my evaluation. He made some really good points. Good enough in fact, that I decided to come and re-look at how I saw things. My major bone of contention is that Smyrna charges more for those outside of Smyrna for yearly membership. They recently changed so players outside of Smyrna can no longer get new memberships. They DID "Grandfather" in any existing players that wanted to stay on. After speaking to Hal, I honestly can see their perspective. I still don't agree with it, as I live in LaVergne, do business in Smyrna and figure we should be included. But is just that, my opinion. Really, that is not why I changed my rating. So, why did I? Well, how many place have you played golf that even seemed to READ your rating, or cared? Hall did read it. Hall does care. The staff is, and was never an issue. Nicer people can not be found to do business with. And when Hal spoke to me, it was with Genuine Concern for their product and service and to be sure I understood what had been done FOR the current members and to let me know that All are welcome and wanted at this course. Membership is just a tricky "business" subject and so I changed my rating to ONLY reflect the course, staff and whether or not I would recommend it. I would. Absolutely. If you go play there, you will find a good course, fair price and great staff. And, at the end of the day, isn't that why you go to play? Great job guys. Just sorry you decided to charge more for "Out of Towners" like me and my friends, and that business dictates you made the decision to exclude us from LaVergne, from future joining in membership.
