So underrated

This is one of those courses that causes me to really question lists of course rankings. When I walked off the 18th green I had to laugh at what I had discovered in the days leading up to this round. Top 100 public lists are hard to crack, and in my opinion once you get past the top 60, the bottom 40 are pretty interchangeable. Yet, for GreyStone not to show up in GD, GM or GW's "Best in State" rankings or "top places you can play in each state," lists, is a head-scratcher.

GreyStone is a formidable golf course and a lot of fun to play. The shot and scenic value for me at points on this course were off the charts. There is a balance between holes that ascend and descend steep elevation changes, and flatter holes that rest in a valley near a rock quarry.

There is no easing into the round here. In fact, it may be my favorite opening hole I've ever played. The tee shot is framed by hardwoods and your target is blind, resting over a large sloping edge of the fairway, which reminded me of a dragon's tail. The yawning fairway resembles a ski slope and drops dramatically to the green. The saddle-like effect also keeps balls funneling toward the middle of the fairway, but miss it off either edge and good luck saving par.

Zoysia fairways provide for excellent lies and were among the best fairways I've played in recent memory. Two-thirds of the course is pretty open, but there is some thick stuff if you get too off line that will swallow up balls.

The bentgrass greens were very good and deceptively quick past the hole.

I loved the closely-mown areas around the green that made chipping exact. The large scallop-shaped bunkers were very consistent.

The par 3s on the front were rather pedestrian, but the two on the back are stellar - as good as you'll find.

True to the namesake of the course, rock outcroppings are prevalent throughout. The stone walls on several holes, particularly No. 10, were beautiful. The intermittent outcropping on the par-5 12th added an awesome element to the hole. It was like playing through a mine field.

There are several short, straightforward par 4s scattered throughout, so take advantage of these to score well, then soak in the uniqueness of holes like Nos. 1, 5, 9, 10, 12 17 and 18. In fact, 16, 17, 18 provide a tremendous closing stretch.

This is a highly underrated track that you can get awesome hot deals thru Golfnow on. If in the Nashville area, it is a must-play.

Tip: in lieu of a traditional yardage guide, be sure and grab a yardage card from the pro shop. It is very helpful in seeing the layout of holes and does provide yardages to hazards, etc.

The magazines might not be able to get the raters out there. It's not really close to anything and Nashville isn't really a hotbed of courses for raters to see. Sweeten's Cove had to make a tremendous effort to get enough raters (and that with big backing from the GolfClubAtlas crowd). All lists have flaws...witness the Top 50 list on this very site not having any of the 4 Bandon Dunes courses listed (for the exact reason that not enough people who write reviews for this site have played there).

Nice golf course

This semi-private golf course is a 45 minute drive from Nashville but it's well worth the drive. Great layout with fast greens and a very friendly staff.

Practice balls

When I purchased this round, it said that it came with a cart and practice balls. The staff at the golf course told me that I had to pay for practice balls when I got there. They told me that the deal that I paid for has changed. The golf course and the hot deal are on two different pages.

Course is in very good condition, greens can be a bit tricky. Unfortunately, it was 5 1/2 hour round, no marshals addressing slow play.

Greens are poorly managed

What a great course to play UNTIL you step on the greens. I’ve played this course a bunch over the years, and I’ve never seen the greens in such bad shape. Diseased badly. You can’t score on this course the way the greens are.
