Good but long
Pros: Well kept, clearly marked tees, and plenty of pin positions. I haven't seen it too crowded but I normally play during the week.
Cons: The holes can get a bit long,. Last time I played hole 15 was 650 some feet which kills my average when going for par 3's.

Nashville's Best Course
1 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: This is a top notch disc golf course. Beautiful, challenging, technical, very well-designed, great flow and focus..every hole feels like a Cedar Hill hole. Plays somewhat open but with woods all around you ..very well-defined fairways..not any lucky shots here. Long at times..there are a couple legitimate par 4's. Lots of great use of elevation...uphill, downhill...well, it is called Cedar HILL after all.
Cons: The Front Nine doesn't loop back to the parking lot. Controlled distance required but no open bomber holes for all you bombers. Hmmm...I'm honestly having a hard time finding cons for this course.

Pros: Very good use of the land and the layout the course.
Cons: Some tee markings are not updated but this particular con is not really that significant.
Other Thoughts: Of the courses played, this course is a great place to play over and over again. Saved as one of my favorite courses to play.

Beautiful course with personality
6 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: This course has enough length to challenge Pro and Advanced players, but plenty of room for the rest of us to make a mistake and recover. A couple hours walking around amongst the cedars makes for a great day. This course separates itself with a personality of its own.
Well maintained fairways, good tee-pads and a myriad of pin positions makes for immense variety. The course is easy to navigate, with well marked tee-signs to indicate pin positions. The use of the elevation and natural fairways is fantastic. This is absolutely one of the best laid out courses I've ever played.
Cons: Very few, if any. There does seem to be some erosion issues in places, but the grounds crew/local club is putting in some great measures to keep it from worsening. Some amenities, score cards, bulletin board, etc. would put this course over the top.
Other Thoughts: This course, is just off I-65 and well worth the stop. I think this course is on the verge of being "destination worthy". If you combine this course with Seven Oaks and the other courses around Nashville you have a real reason to spend a weekend in Music City.

Pros: 1) Cedar trees make for an awesome tree for disc golf courses. I love the foliage and the growth habit makes for a very prunable tree.
2) Very nice touches of landscape throughout the course. I noticed a few places where ornamental grasses were planted and framed with some small timbers. It doesn't affect play very much, but it does accent an area.
3) Overseeding was done in a few areas in the deep wooded areas. This shows the locals care and concern for this course. They could keep those baskets in more accessible areas in the off season, but they choose to do the extra work to allow those baskets to be used.
4) Nice basket marking system with a metal tapscrew and a colored washer with holes for each basket location on the pole and numbered.
5) Directionals are good and helpful as long as you know to keep your eye out for them. They are small arrows off to the sides of the fairways however when playing the long baskets some of those arrows and paths are a hundred feet or more backwards down the fairways.
6) Excellent distance variation on this course with holes in the 200, 300, 400, and 500' range. This is such a great design tool to force different shots and different shots. It also adds to the risk/reward because you have to choose how much you can safely bite off of a hole.
7) Concrete tees are always a positive, but some of the concrete went an extra step. It looked like a tar or adhesive with aggregate or course sand applied to the top. When it dried apparently the sand would stick to the adhesive and provided a great surface for the wintertime for sure.
8) Deer sighting is always an added bonus. I love feeling like I am out in nature completely even though you are never far from a road.
9) Heavy stone was used in high wear areas and also where apparently some washouts may be regular occurrences. This is better than mulch because it won't move away and it won't decompose.
10) Serious par 4's on this course and a lot of them. I love multiple shot holes and I love placement shots.
11) Nice signs with Hole #, a map, the basket marking system with a distance listed for every basket location.
12) Benches and garbage cans in multiple spots throughout the course . . . good for tournaments and good for people who want to go out and play all day.
13) Pretty clean course in terms of garbage.
14) This course is completely separated from any other activities in the park. It's always nice to be able to just throw away on every hole.
15) Excellent variety of holes with some fairly open holes with baskets tucked into the edge of the woods, plenty of holes in moderately wooded holes, and plenty of tight wooded holes too.
16) Elevation was slight on most holes, but there were a couple of pretty fun long drops (8 and 17) plus plenty of moderate elevation changes. Very few of the holes have no elevation change so it definitely comes through in needing to adjust your shot.
17) Lots different shots needed here. You need to work your disc all directions and you might need to make some throws that test your recovery shot making skills.
Cons: 1) There seem to be quite a few washout areas. Lots of area have also seen measures taken to reduce the washouts and erosion but there are still a few areas that probably formed pretty recently.
2) No number plates which is always helpful on new courses. While there aren't any baskets that would confuse you which hole you are throwing too, but I always like to see the number plate.
3) Long baskets create for a little goofy walk from time to time because the paths to the next holes are well back down the fairway on occasion.
4) No restrooms available on this course.
5) Not what I would call a beginner friendly course. . .perhaps by design so that the chuckers and beginners do not come out here, but I like to see all inclusive courses where anyone can play.
6) Baskets were in ok shape, but they have seen some wear over the years for sure.
Other Thoughts: This course took a few days to really grow on me, I really had a great time, but I just wasn't wowed initially. After a couple days I really started to realize how good of a course I had just played. I think my initial reaction was due to those mowed fairways amongst all the trees, but I am not 100% sure why I felt that way. It may have also been due to the fact that I had just come from playing Holler in the Hills a few days earlier.

Fun and Hard, What else do you need?
Pros: Clean course, well marked, you can play on a windy day because the trees sheild the wind on most holes.
Cons: Gets muddy at times and stays soggy on 7, 8, and 10.
Other Thoughts: All around great course, Takes patients and the ability to forget about a bad throw.

Beauty and the Beast
• Baskets are in good shape
• Tee pads are in good shape
• Trash Cans
• Very well maintained course and very easy to find
• Good signage
• Very challenging course with a couple fun bomber holes
• Huge variety of basket positions
• No restrooms/water that I could find
• No map that I could find either, although not really an issue
• Take water and use the restroom ahead of time
• Do make sure you're throwing at the right basket if the baskets are in the long positions, particularly on #7.
This is another loved course by the locals, and by that I mean, it's another one of the cleanest, well maintained courses I've ever seen which seems to be a pattern in Tennessee. It's conveniently located in a nice park with almost no cross traffic to speak of. It's a little tricky to find the first hole but if you use the tips on this site, you'll find it. As for the hole layout, there's a wide variety of shots here and I struggle to really review them because the baskets weren't in the long positions, oh no, they were in the 'screw you and the disc you rode in on' positions. Holy smokes some these holes were long. I'm talking throw it as far you can (and fairly precisely) and then throw it as far you can again (and even more precisely) and then maybe you'll be within putting range. Yowza! Must've been tournament time. Needless to say, I got my butt kicked by this course. And with no map, it made it a little more challenging to navigate, although the signage is fantastic. With all that said though, this is a beautiful course. Believe it or not, this was the very first time that I was walking around and noticing this green stuff constantly under my feet. What is that? It's grass! Holy smokes. Made the sport feel almost official and stuff. Loved it!
This is a fantastic course! Yes, it's challenging. Yes, it may be border line unfair in a couple spots, but it's one the best maintained courses I've ever seen. It's beautifully laid out covering a lot of varied terrain. I completely understand why they hold tournaments here and why there is so much love for this course. Add my name to the list of admirers. Great job folks!

Great course near Nashville
Pros: This was one of the better courses I've played. There were very clear directions for the holes/tees, and the course itself was in great shape (not too muddy, etc.)
Cons: None really that I remember.
Other Thoughts: If you live in or near Nashville - or if you're passing through - do yourself a favor and check this course out.

Well Established, Well Worn
Pros: Well established and maintained reasonably. Set in a public park, look closely for the small brown posts directing to a handy parking lot.. Mostly wooded, lots of cedar with nice scenery, no pedestrians. Multiple pin locations, 3+ per hole. Signs at tees were about the best I've seen. Many narrow drives thru tree canopy are challenging. Starts and ends at the same parking lot.
Cons: Every course needs a map or at least overall layout billboard. A little worn out after all the years. I'm from out of town and she's had a lot of action. You could give a guy a break and put at least one pin in the forward location. Quite lenghtly and distant between some holes.
Other Thoughts: Lost disc on #17, long downhill and too much left break into the underbrush. Three people and two young German Sheppards couldn't even find it.
