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.

Rain

Be forewarned this course expects you to play in the rain. We had to drive two hours in the pouring rain, to not be charged a no show fee.

Don’t play on weekends

If there is a hot deal on the weekend DO NOT BOOK. It is usually part of an outing and you will be in a shotgun start. This was not communicated before hand. If a weekend deal seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Great, as always

Undoubtedly one of the nicest Public tracks in Nashville. Greens are always firm, fast, clean and true. Pace is always pretty good, the course is never truly backed up. Always worth the time and money.

Rolling Gem

Course is in incredible condition! Greens are receptive to good iron shots but roll pure and quick! Course is not incredibly long from the Gold tees(5-10hcp) but not very many flat lies out there! Water and sand play a part on many holes so a precisely planned and executed tee shot are essential!!

Great Course for the Price!

First time playing Gaylord Springs Links. We really enjoyed it. The course layout was fantastic. The course was in great condition, the greens were very good. The tee boxes were a little weird, but not a big issue in the end!

First time here. I’ll be back.

Cool layout. Several of the holes were scenic and photograph worthy. Greens wonderful. Staff pleasant. Pace of play was a tad on slower side. Price was a good value for the quality of course. I’ll be back.

loved it

I was paired up with a 2 some, a nice father and son tandem who regularly play the course, and they gave me some insight into the course. That was helpful as a first timer. Bottom line, it's beautiful, it's in great shape, it's fun, there's nothing negative I can say about it. You'd think by the price that you might be playing an average, ordinary course. You'd be wrong.

Awesome

I didn’t know what to expect. Back north where I live, a course this price would’ve been average at best. So I wasn’t expecting much. But holy cow, the course is absolutely gorgeous and in wonderful shape. Your short game is a premium on this course. You can spray your Tee shots almost anywhere and get away with it because of the wide-open layout, but elevated greens with deep swallows to the sides require a good touch in close. Unquestionably worth the price, a pleasure to play.
