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.

The worst course I have ever played

The course was way too expensive for the condition that it was in, fairways were in bad shape, greens were not cut, very poor manicured greens, one green even had big patches of grass on it for a repair, horrible. We were down for a wedding that night and wanted to play a little golf, looks nice on the website, very deceiving. One staff member in particular actually came out and told us we were playing too slow,, we were playing 10-12 minute holes with four golfers, it was cart path only also through the first six holes, we played the nine again, and before we teed off this gentleman in particular told me you will be playing from the whites now, you aren’t good enough to play from the blues, that upset me very much, I had some words with him, explaining he doesn’t get to choose where I play from, but he insisted on it, I played from the white tees on my second nine, I didn’t have too, but I did. This course needs some serious help, this gentleman in question needs some customer service training. I would not recvomend playing this course, a waste of money. Very disappointed.

Never going back

As an out of state golfer looking to get a round in while visiting friends in Franklin, Cheekwood Gold Club attracted our attention with the price. After looking at the website and seeing pictures of the course that we thought we were playing at, we reserved our time. However the course is not as advertised. Tee Boxes were dirt, greens were longer than some fairways, and the hospitality was not welcoming. Highly suggest paying the extra dollar and going somewhere else.

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.
