Located east of Nashville in Mount Juliet, Pine Creek Golf Course claims to have the most well maintained greens in the area as well as some of the most affordable rates. The layout offers different challenges on the front and back nines for a diverse round. The first nine are links holes that tumble across rolling terrain while the back nine has a more traditional design with tighter fairways that require greater accuracy and strong iron play. The signature hole is the par-3 sixth, a hole generously framed with trees that crosses a large water hazards. It is a fair test for players of all skill levels but it was also designed with playability in mind. More seasoned golfers will find many risk-reward opportunities but beginners the forced carries won't punish beginners.

My friends and I were on vacation in Tennessee and were pleasantly surprised by this course.

The golf carts (often your first impression of a course) were really nice (appeared new with really comfortable seats). They also had water bottles and towels in the cart for each person.

There was no starter so the Pro Shop attendant told us to just go ahead and tee off. His only advice was stay out of the rough (that seems to be what every starter at a course tells you when you ask for advice but this time it was true because the rough was very thick).

The pace of play was good for most of the round (we really only had to wait on the 17th and 18th hole). My friend was annoyed that so many singles were playing (and being good golfers we always offered to let them play through which slowed our round a bit but we were still done in just over 4 hours). They really should have put singles together but my guess is that it was later in the afternoon and guys just showed up to play.

The course was in very good shape but that may be partly because they have a 90 degree rule (not just that day but we saw permanent signs stating 90 degree).

The real challenge of the course was the speed of the greens - really, really fast. It was hard to have your approach shot stay on the green which was surprising given how wet the fairways were from all the rain earlier in the week. So no roll in the fairways but the ball released too much on greens.

We played on a Monday afternoon so I can't speak for pace of play on the weekend but I would recommend this course based on the fun layout.

This course is a lot of fun to play. The layout is fair with very few holes with OB. Greens are always in great shape. Very walkable course. Practice facilities much improved with additional practice green. I do wish rates were a little lower.

A pleasant course to play but sometimes rather slow. They have rangers but the didn't expedite play. Took two hours and forty five minutes to play the front nine. Overall scenery nice but not much grass on the fairways this time of year.

This course has improved over the summer. First the good things, the fairways are green and in good shape, there are challenging holes (4th, 10th, 13th) and most of the holes are separated from the other holes by trees. Also, the people who play the course are always kind. The pace of play is good too.

The first hole is pretty mediocre as are the 5th and 7th and 16th but the opening hole is the most generic. The greens could use some doctoring and there are some bare patches on the course still and the normal everyday price is too high.

If you get a deal on it, the course is fun and quiet. If you are in the early evening you will see deer especially on the 11th fairway and the staff is great. It's not Augusta or Pine Valley but its definitely a step up from a municipal course. The burgers are good too.

Greens where in good shape but slow. They must be keeping them long to not lose them. Most of the fairways are still showing damage or have areas under repair. Holes 5, 10, 11, 13 & 14 pretty much the whole fairways are ground under repair even though you can still play off them.

The greens are the best part about this course, however the locals rarely fix their ball marks. Several holes are no carts allowed due the condition of the fairways. The fairways on several holes are nothing but dirt.

This course has seen better days, but is in the same shape as every course in the area. Courses are still recovering from the hard winter. A few tee boxes could use some flattening and mowed a little better. Greens were in pretty good shape. It a good course to play.

Use to be a very nice to play, but now is real bad. 6 or 7 holes you must stay on the path [not par 3's]. Almost all the holes the collar of them are beat bad and they have laid down new grass. But is bad.<br/> To make matters worse they still charge full price, it is only worth in the shape it is in maybe 15$ no more. Will not play here again this year.

Played here few years back and course was in good shape. Course now is not so good. Was told in clubhouse there were some bad spots in some fairways. The better statement would have been most of every fairway is in bad shape. Greens to the contrary were in excellent shape. So right now I would say stay away until they get the fairways fixed back to good standards.

I've played Pine Creek several times over the years and it's always been in great shape, tee to green. Not now. They have a real mess on their hands. The greens are excellent, the tees are really good, but the fairways...yikes. Some of them were literally just dirt and mud. I don't know what happened but I should have known something was up when I pulled into the parking lot at noon on a Sunday and there were only ten cars.

This course had a nice layout but the conditions were horrible; the fairways were burnt out (was told they froze over the winter and didn't recover) and the greens were very slow yet hard enough to not receive a chip let a alone a new iron shot in.<br/> I've played courses this year that had fairway problems and they only charged $12-15. To pay$40 here was outrageous!
