Situated in the heart of Franklin, the Cheekwood Golf Club (formerly known as Fairways on Spencer Creek) is conveniently located only 20 minutes south of Nashville. This popular layout has been ranked as one of the top 10 nine-hole golf courses in Tennessee. Despite being a shorter course, the layout still offers several holes with water hazards and sand bunkers. The tight fairways and rolling terrain also require a fair amount of accuracy. The course has enough challenges as well as enough variety throughout the holes to make it a fun round for more skilled players, which also makes it a great place for beginners to get some practice. Being that the round is usually quick, the golf course is a popular choice for golfers looking to get in a quick round after work.

Sneaky good course

I thought this course was exceptional. Sadly I couldn’t find many fairways off the tee but they looked great and greens are sneaky fast as well. I thought the staff was incredible and the starter was great. Yes, the the clubhouse was ran by younger people but the two girls that helped me were awesome. A recent comment suggested that the people running this place were hands off and that’s not the case. Well done everyone I cannot wait to come back!

Run by Children...caveat emptor

For a tucked away neighborhood course, it was a nice course. Some of the greens were in bad shape but most were good. My issue is with the operation of the course. It’s all children running it (16-22 year olds). I saw no pro, no starter, no ranger. Now, the kids I interacted with were all respectful and nice. I liked them. But the scene had a very hands off feel. And I thought I would like that until the clown playing behind our twosome began driving his ball into us. On three consecutive holes! This place invites that element obviously. No rules. Pay a little more and go where adults are running things.

Ride along

My wife wanted to ride along, not play. There was a charge of $7. In the past they did not charge.

Great place to play

Considering it’s early in the year, greens were a little rough, needed some work. But the course was great and always fun place to play. Franklin needs to let them expand to 18 holes.

I am a fan of this course

Creekwood which used to be Spencer Creek is a fun 9 hole course. I have played here many times over the years. It is close to my home and work so I love to get out late afternoons and play. The staff is friendly and outgoing.

Love this course.

Great for the price. Some of the greens need some work, but for for $12 for 9 holes you can’t beat it.

Worst course ever played

The t box is as hard as concrete. Solo hitters playing with two balls, and delaying time. Took over 2 1/2 hours to play 9 due to slow players holding everyone up. If you want your wife to come watch, expect to pay $8.50 for her to sit in the cart “ride along.” The course is over priced considering the condition and maintenance. DO NOT GO HERE unless you want to be irritated the whole time. If I could rate this course 1-10 I rate it at a 3!

Fun Course

The staff is so friendly and the course is just fun to play! It’s only 9 holes but a lot of time that’s all we have time for. You can book tee times on line which is easy!

Greens are terrible

As noted in the title, that is besides the fact that they are aerated.
Would not recommend to a friend at this time.

The greens sucked

The cost to play should be cut by 2/3rd due to the crappy condition of the greens. Just plain horrible and should be closed until the greens get corrected .
