The Crossing GC runs alongside the Harpeth River, which borders 15 of the course's 18 holes. Opened in 1970, the course has a classic layout that will appeal to a wide range of skill levels. Some of the holes definitely present a formidable test, the 16th and 18th for example, which have been hailed by local media as two of the best and most challenging holes in the state, but it is the par-4 ninth with its island green that is the course's signature hole. Although the layout offers a fair challenge, there is also some room for error that makes it more approachable for beginners. In addition to the course, The Crossing. boasts an 8-acre driving range as well as chipping and putting greens equipped with a practice sand bunker.

First, the people were amazing, staff and the other players alike. I could easily play here every week if I lived in Nashville. There are some really tricky holes (9 & 18 come to mind), but I enjoyed the challenge. Fun morning.

The course was in really bad shape. No fairways to speak of, greens were in bad shape as well.

Pace was extremely slow, and there were no marshals around to speed it up.

I feel like I wasted my money playing here.

Visiting family in Franklin. I am from Florida, were year round golf is the norm, so I may have had higher than regular expectations for that price point in a round of golf.

No problem with booking tee time on a weekend, but after a day of heavy rain, the course was flooded. Not unplayable, but drenched. On the par 5 11th, there were literally geese swimming in a puddle on the fairway. I am used to muddy golf, and enjoy the aggressiveness of chip/pitch shots on a wet green, but this was a tad much.

I understand the course can’t control the weather, but would have like to have seen at least a warning that the course was almost completely unnavigable without rain boots.

For 40 dollars, you can play much nicer state parks in Tennessee.

Even though it wasn’t spring, this course offered quite the challenge. 18 was long and difficult. Staff very friendly and accommodating for an out of town visitor. I will play here again when I come back to Nashville area. I look forward to playing when everything’s greener.

Conditions were marginal. I’m sure the the course will be in better shape as spring comes but will never be a course that I would consider nice. Lots of course damage due to rain wash out areas. Weeds and unkept areas were an eyesore. Hoping I’m wrong regarding condition later in the season. The price was good.

One of my gripes is, I went to play and have a little father son time. When we got there they had put another golfer with us to play at the same tee time. I was not aware of this before or we would have went to a different golf course.

My wife & I stopped on Our way home from fl.

Found a gorgeous property which had recently

suffered some flooding but when it drys out and

greens up ( Bermuda fairways)will show itself a

GREAT VALUE. Nice staff helpful & courteous.

Many tees can be enjoyed by even beginners and enough water carries to challenge the better player from the tips at nearly 7k in total length

One complaint. Who closes 19th hole at 5 on a 73 degree day in February!

Course layout could be challenging. Several up hill long holes. Pace was good after we got around a foursome that was taking 20 minutes a hole. Want to give it a go on the spring. Beautiful views and vistas. Recommend playing.

The course was well maintained but the rough was higher than usual and tough to find balls. The golf carts shorted out twice and had to be replaced which cost us time, and the course was pretty backed up. It took us over 4.5 hours to play 18. I’ll play again but would hope a better experience.
