Not Just Yet

Course was in ok shape. Greens have been aerated and were sanded hard. The fairways weren’t hardly in yet but course played good! Been nice if GolfNow had notified us of the aerification!

Formerly Cookeville Country Club

This course is not what it used to be since the university has taken over operations. The course was hit hard this past February by an ice storm; tree limbs are down all over the course and have not yet been cleaned up.
We played the course the day after a heavy rain, so it was saturated. Hole numbers 2, 4, 7, 17, and 18 had portions of their fairways under water. There's nothing that could be done about the rainwater, but it just made the conditions worse.
I've played this course many times since 1984, and it is in the worst shape it has ever been. I hope the warmer weather and a little TLC will bring this course back to its former condition.
For the record, the greens were in very good shape.

WET

Front nine very very wet. Probably should have been closed. Pace of play was awesome. I can see how this would be a good course if it weren’t wet. Greens were in excellent shape. Face the play was excellent.

Terrible shape

Still hand limbs down and strewn all over from the ice storm. Tee boxes full of broken teedls. Not like it was maintained in the past. Terribly disappointed

My home course

This has been my home course for the last 13 years since I moved into the area. Now I do not think I will be back. Staff has gone through some changes and ever since the local college took over it has gone down hill. This past weekend was the final dagger. When you call and reserve a tee time and have friends drive from hours away to play and get to the corse and they take your tee time away for college practice then tell you “there is nothing I’m going to do to help you” is very unprofessional. There are other courses in the area to play but this was my favorite and I played there at least once a week for years and years. I will not return and I will recommend finding another course to people new in the area. I hope Matt can get this course back to where it once was, it’s a shame to see how it is handled now.

Fun Course with Challenging Par-4s

Greens were firm and fast, but putted true. Bermuda fairways were starting to go dormant; lies in the fairways were still good. Pace of play was a bit slow on the front, but once a foursome quit at the turn, play was fast. Finished 18 holes in just over 3 hours.

Nice course

Played on a Sunday at 740. Course was in great shape and pace of play was good. Course is a little short, but makes up for that in shot selection. Not just a grip and rip it wide open type of place. Loved it.
