Situated in the heart of Franklin, the Cheekwood Golf Club (formerly known as Fairways on Spencer Creek) is conveniently located only 20 minutes south of Nashville. This popular layout has been ranked as one of the top 10 nine-hole golf courses in Tennessee. Despite being a shorter course, the layout still offers several holes with water hazards and sand bunkers. The tight fairways and rolling terrain also require a fair amount of accuracy. The course has enough challenges as well as enough variety throughout the holes to make it a fun round for more skilled players, which also makes it a great place for beginners to get some practice. Being that the round is usually quick, the golf course is a popular choice for golfers looking to get in a quick round after work.

Poor conditions.

Course needs a lot of work. We did go in January, however, it seems as though they just left the course to fend for itself. Greens haven’t been cut in a long time, brush needs to be cleaned up, and tee boxes completely redone.

Good Experience

Played with my son in law, a beginning golfer; we both really enjoyed ourselves; I’ve been playing the course for over 20 years, and appreciate the improvement made over the years.

Member review

We have been members for a few years. The course has never been better. We met the new groundskeeper, Andy. What an asset he is Cheekwood. The leaves were gone, the greens are in much better shape and he improved the atmosphere.

Great for Iron Work

The staff here is always friendly and accommodating. Driver needed on just a couple holes, but the real thing about this 9-hole track is that it’s an affordable and excellent place to work on your iron game. Greens need some TLC and the tee box on Number 5 is atrocious, but the course is otherwise in respectable condition. Some decently challenging plays that make it moderately challenging in a few spots, but for the seasoned golfer, it’s a place to practice, mainly.

A decent course

Always a nice and easy place to get a quick 9 hole game in, course is never really super up kept, with tee boxes or the greens. Just a very average course at best

Fun little course

I do not play often so I enjoy fairly short courses that do not have a lot of trouble. The only possible downside is the price of $25 for 9 holes. There are similar courses for roughly half the price in the Nashville area but I guess if you do not want to drive this is nice.

Great course with moderate holes. Fairway today was wet. The green were very wet. Good layout with some challenges. Plan on coming back.
