About

Holes 18
Type Resort/Public
Style Links
Par 72
Length 6842 yards
Slope 133
Rating 73.1

The Cumberland River gave birth to the Scottish links-style Gaylord Springs Golf Links, a par-72 golf course that provides 18 testing holes that border limestone bluffs and wetlands protected by the feds. The golf course, designed by the former U.S. Open and PGA Champion Larry Nelson, has collected several distinctions over its days.

The big draw on the Gaylord Springs Golf Links is the signature fourth hole, home to the hundred-plus-year-old springhouse that gives the golf course its name.

After a round on the Gaylord Springs Golf Links, head back to the 43,000-square-foot antebellum-style clubhouse to shop, dine, and take in the views of the golf course.

Okay Round

Brought client and co-worker today. Greens are average; very inconsistent speed. Pin positions are poorly chosen. #4 is unfair if ball is anywhere above the pin. Lots of golfers; slow round. Can you please re-calibrate the carts to not sent 3+ cart-path only reminders per hole. 5 seems to always be cart path only as are several others. You shut off carts the minute they hit one of these fairways. We don’t need 3+ bells per hole as reminder.
This could be a nice course / experience what some improvements.

As good as it gets!

Been playing for more than 4 decades and this course is probably in my top 10! FantastIc layout with lots of character. Entire course was in good shape but the greens were beyond good. Challenging but nothing unfair or overly “tricked up”. Absolute pleasure to play.

Beautiful Landscape

The course was really pretty although they fairways were narrow. The greens were really receptive and the pace of play was perfect. It was a beautiful day and we had a wonderful time.

Can’t wait to play again!

Great course layout... challenging enough for women but definitely not easy! The course design was interesting and beautiful! Greens were amazing, and fast! Course knowledge was definitely an advantage but now I know ... Looking forward to my next round! Maybe I’ll bring my husband next time... maybe not !! Thank you for this great opportunity and for being so accommodating to a woman playing alone (and for my mom who just rode along with me! )

Wonderful course and facility

Gaylord Springs is a fantastic course. Anyone in or visiting Nashville should make it a point to play here. We started at exactly our tee time, and played in just under 4 hours which is pretty great. GPS on the carts is a welcome feature as playing it for the first time makes it really hard to know where to go. The practice facility is wonderful, the clubhouse is spacious and in the middle of everything. I can't say enough about the course!
