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.

Good 9 holes on a busy day

Had a 9:02 tee time but it was backed up to the point that we tee’d off around 9:25. However, we still played 9 holes under 2 hours with no problems. Pace was great. Greens were under repair and in some cases pretty bad but playable.

In the heat, this is a great course to play quickly. For a great deal and fast play compared to Franklin Bridge (5 hour round on weekends) you should play here.

Always a great time

Such a fun 9 hole course. It looks super easy on paper, but there is plenty to keep you in your toes at every hole.

Condition

Course conditions need some work. Greens were almost not puttable. Length and degree of difficulty are good for my grandson to learn the game. Price is acceptable.

The greens where in poor shape

Each of the greens had a different speed, and on many of them there was no grass just dirt and sand top layer. In addition you would expect them to at least mow or roll the greens but there was nothing done. On top of that parts of the course were bone dry. While other parts of the corse had visible water. This was even worse in the sand traps. Parts were as hard as dirt while parts of the same trap were dry and played as normal. And the speed of play took us 3 hours to play the front nine. And when making the turn (since it is a nine hole course) 3 other groups were put in front of us. We ended up leaving the course without playing the last 4 holes since the speed of play was even slower then the first nine.

Pace of Play was the worst I’ve experienced since picking up the game

A bachelor party of 11 people showed up right before several confirmed tee times. The course allowed them to go in front of everyone who had tee times. The course also allowed the bachelor party to play in one sixsome and the other a fivesome. We all complained several times to the clubhouse and nothing was done about it. It took almost 3.5 hours to finish 9 holes. I immediately went and complained to the clubhouse. Terry told me to just take it up with Golf Now since I booked online. Golf Now then had to call Terry several times and waited on hold (according to the CSR from golf now ) over 10 minutes. Terry confirmed everything I said to Golf Now and Golf Now gave me a voucher that is only good Monday - Thursday after 2 pm on a hot deal. I work Monday - Friday 9 am - 6 pm. When am I gonna be able to use a voucher Monday - Thursday after 2 pm? This whole experience was awful. I would never play this course again or book through golf now.

Decent course

Fairways are in great condition. Greens were fairly inconsistent and weren't in amazing shape. Clubhouse only had chips and some candy, no hot food.

Fun course

This was a fun course. Just getting back into golf and my partner was just beginning golf. This course was a nice layout that was challenging but not too hard for a beginner. Not so busy that you felt rushed and the staff was so friendly and made us feel at home. I will definitely play this course again, probably a bunch more times.

Greens

Course is in great shape. The Only issue;the greens have just recently been aerated so the roll is a little “bumpy”.

Fun Track...Friendly Staff

Last minuted decision to play. The price helped seal the deal ($24 online). After all the rain, the course was in good shape. Good mix of fun and challenging holes - the par 4s were pretty long. The staff was friendly & helpful, which is a nice way to start.
I'm going to replay next time. Met the actual owner on the way out, who mentioned that improvements are coming. I'll definitely come back next time I'm in town.

Not a bad practice course

The course has no par fives (par32) but the holes are all regular length. Some greens were in poor condition but others were ok. The fairway grass was in good shape, allowing good opportunities for shots to the greens. Overall a nice place to work on your game or take a youngster to play without a ton of people pushing you because the course is over-booked.

Construction

The course is under construction and is now a par 3 with 2 remaining par 4’s. The price should be cut in half. $45 to play 18 holes on a very short par 3 course with rough greens and massive construction is unacceptable.
