About

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.

Always a challenging, fun round

One of my favorite courses in the area, even in late fall, early winter. Course was definitely playable and the greens were excellent, but I do think they should adjust offseason prices. An exceptionally enjoyable round of golf in prime season, just a slight drop-off as weather and conditions change.

IA truly unique, fantastic golf course. Our first time playing it in windy conditions made it incredibly tough to score on. The hybrid grass greens were very very fast. The condition of the course was perfect, the clubhouse/pro shop was great. Very friendly staff. A must play!

Late November play

Conditions from frost delayed start for more than hour and half. All of the staff from inside to out were so attentive to concerns and took the time to keep us updated on status as we got plenty of practice at the range and pitching and putting greens. As for course other than cart path only slowing play there was only 3-4 times where play came to a little delay.

Fast greens, fun course

Annual golf trip with my usual foursome. Course was in good shape, especially for November. You can set your level of difficulty with the several sets of tees. Staff was courteous and thanked us for playing. I always appreciate that. Called to let me know that a frost delay pushed back our tee time. Got going about an hour later.
