Pros: Not too much to brag about here. There are baskets here, that is always good. People new to the game can throw a good round here without climbing up and down hills now that there has been a remodel of the layout. Nice practice spot where you don't have to worry about losing discs. Also for the locals this is a great place for practice ripping on the old pad and pin positions that were very long and downhill.
Cons: The bad thing is that this place is usually very crowded with non disc golfers making it hard to shoot a round without distractions and holdup's. With the new layout there are lot of the same shot back and forth along the sides of the hills. There are several dangerous tee locations as well. Not much shade, hardly any trash cans, no benches, etc. Least favorite of all Nashville courses by most locals. They have managed to destroy a great course in my opinion. It's a shame too because this was one of the only courses where you could come rip your driver with full power and get the full potential out of the disc down those awesome elevation changes that they hardly use anymore. Out of towners will have a tough time of trying to find their way around the course. Hole 1 is by the main entrance by the road by the way. Signs are clustered and confusing now.
Other Thoughts: I used to play here often after a round at Seven Oaks to get some major elevation rips out there. I used to kill it here before they made it even easier. Sure walking up those hills was tiresome but the shots at the top back down were unlike anything we had here in Nashville. Now they barely use the great elevation changes here. Instead of shooting down an awesome hill you are shooting across back and forth. Still hot and shadeless and walking back and forth, just not getting that awesome shot. Used to have concrete tees, accurate signs, and awesome shots. Now none of the above. On an early morning if no one is there I still go and play the old layout. It can still be done with a couple of minor changes. 18 is one of the only shots like there used to be. I will miss 14 from the top of the hill forever.
I guess I see what they were trying to do with the remodel. Due to the shared park with non disc golfers there were some very dangerous and sometimes annoying situations. Throwing a blind shot down on 3 to see an angry biker coming up around the hill that you almost killed was never good. New players were always complaining about the hills so it hardly got played and they were probably trying to increase traffic. The climb was worth it for the shot in my eyes though. The higher the climb the more fun the shot. I loved seeing my discs fly farther than they ever had before down those rolling fairways.
There used to be a 10 percent window of the year that I really enjoyed playing here. Early fall when the wind and sun were not so bad and the children were at school. Now I hardly have the urge to go at all, unless I know that no one is there and I can shoot the old school route.

Hole Up, Hole Down, 9X
Pros: Concrete teepads. Multiple pin positions.
Between map online/at course and signs at each tee, this was an easy course for a first-time visitor to navigate.
Practically no chance to lose a disc. Would probably be a good course for glo.
Cons: Tee pad #10 unmarked - yes, it is the big concrete slab down from #9's basket.
Current pin position not noted at tee sign. Some baskets difficult to see. No benches.
Multi-use park, so may have some non-players to avoid.
Trash - two full cans at #1 and #18, no other cans but plenty of trash elsewhere - Miller Lite seems to be the beverage of choice. :-)
Other Thoughts: If your idea of fun disc golf is gripping-n-ripping up-and-down mostly open/scattered tree hills, having multiple birdie but few bogeys opportunities, typically only having to contend with 1~2 large trees enroute or near the basket, then this is definitely the course for you!
Want a good cardio workout? Go play this course on a hot-n-humid summer's day.

Pros: Laid out very nicely to take advantage of terrain. Walking path interferes with course minimally. Informative Tee signs. Multiple pin positions listed for all holes. Concrete Pads. Baskets that were there were in good shape.
Cons: A lot of baskets missing -- # 1 - # 4, # 17, # 12, # 16 -- those are the ones I remember. Signs did not seem to indicate which position the pins were in.
Note added 6-19-09 about missing baskets: Based on the fact that other reviews since I posted this one do not mention this as an issue, it seems that the baskets were only removed temporarily and they may be back in place. See my "OTHER THOUGHTS" section for more info regarding this issue. If I go back and play this course again and the baskets are back, I will adjust my rating accordingly. However, the "2 Disc" rating reflects the condition of the course at the time I played it.
Other Thoughts: If the missing baskets had been present, this would easily have been a 3 or 3.5 review. What was really disappointing is that I tried to introduce my brother-in-law to disc golf today, and it was hard to get a rhythm going as we tried to figure out which pin location we were throwing to, and if the basket was there for that hole.

Holes Three and Four???
Pros: This course is really centralized in the Nashville area. I play actual golf across the street as often as I can, and I am glad that I finally played Two Rivers DGolf Course. From an exercise standpoint, this one can really get the heart pumping. As reviewed by others, it is an elevation lovers dream. Some great challenges are offered from the facade that the distances/elevation changes offer. And the natural trees are great as well.
Cons: POOR SIGN PLACEMENT! And, as the others have said, WHERE ARE TEE BOXES / HOLES #3 and 4?!? We searched for a while after Hole #2 and found nothing. Then we took our shots to Hole #5, which was the only logical tee shot to take. It was right by Hole #2. Here is the kicker: While down (this course is clearly divided right down the middle (front 9 (well, 7!) and back nine)) near Hole #10, I saw a basket that had a 3 on it. NOT #13 and the one fell off, but a well-placed, centered 3. After I shot Hole #12, THERE WAS A BASKET WITH A 4 ON IT! These holes were on the COMPLETE OPPOSITE side of #'s 1-9. And we searched for the tee boxes for these holes and found nothing.
Other Thoughts: The parking is not close to tee box #1, nor is it very close to Hole #10 to start the back nine. If you are accurate at your distance shots, this course is good.
