About

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.

Great golf course with outstanding conditions

First time playing this golf course. I looked on line to find a list of the top public golf courses in the Nashville area and this was in the top 5. This course was in GREAT SHAPE! I’m a snob when it comes to greens at golf courses as I feel this area is one that makes or breaks a golf course. You need to have greens that are in great shape and gives the player the opportunity to get up and down which bad greens makes that task much more difficult to accomplish. The greens here were GREAT! Fast and roll so true! Hats off to the superintendent for keeping the conditions in this type of condition. As a player, courses that are kept up like this course make playing here so enjoyable. Although the price is a little bit higher than other local courses, to me it’s worth the little extra cost to play conditions this good! I will be back when in town again for sure! Great course layout and great conditions = great golfing! Thank you to all the workers at this course! Keep up the great job!
