Pros: nice short course that demands accuracy.a great place in middle tennesse to go when it's cold or windy.also shaded and cool in the hot summer months. short enough to play multiple rounds without wearing out older players like me.
Cons: equipment is very old . tee pads are small and you will need to rethink run ups to more of an upshot type throw.
Other Thoughts: a huge amount of work has been done over the summer 2009. this is all volunteer work by a group of local golfers.the state has no funds and a minimum staff for course maintenance. truckloads of mulch have been spread, baskets repaired, retaining walls and logs have been placed to help with erosion control. signage is still a problem as this course has been through several different configurations and there are extra tees that lead to nothing. NOTE: i am updating this as Tennessee Parks now are "pack it in, pack it out" so don't count on trash cans although there is a dumpster placed in the main parking lot. unique tee signs have been added and some landscaping projects/memorials constructed.

Not half bad
Pros: this course isnt as bad as people make it out to be. sure it is a little old and it is all par threes. not a single long hole. i found it quite nice to not be chucking it as hard as possible to get it to a pin 500 ft away. if you need some woods pracice this is the place to be. i found it to be a very relaxing course that didnt wear my arm out.
Cons: you will run right off the end of the tee box and flat onto your face. the baskets are pretty old. the maps of the holes were mostly unreadable or nonexistant but we took it as a challenge.
Other Thoughts: overall a pretty decent course. can be a little annoying in some spots but i thoroughly enjoyed my visit. i would recommend to anyone worked on their wooded game, beginners, or just anybody looking for an original disc golf course.
planning to go take a day to play and replace all of the signs (if the park will let me) if anybody in the area would like to help me out i would greatly appreciate it.

Pros: This was the first disc golf course I ever played...way back in the mid-eighties, so it has some nostalgia going for it.
Cons: I was not bitten by the disc golf bug after my first round here. In fact, another 20 years passed before my next round.
Other Thoughts: In fairness to the course, I should give it a fresh look on my next trip to Nashville.

Not memorable in a good way
Pros: I enjoy wooded courses, and this one had a few holes that were hidden gems. Other than those few, the rest of the course was not memorable.
Cons: Directions and signage are dismal. I got completely lost and walked for 30 minutes, and ended up nearly walking up to the doorstep of someone's trailer. Never found all 18 of the holes.. bummer.
Muddy course and teepads are in bad shape.
Other Thoughts: This is a course that locals can enjoy, but it needs some MAJOR revamping. New teepads and signs are needed. Would be nice if it could be reconfigured to be longer.

Old style course
Pros: This is an old style course that focuses on short tight shots instead of long holes.
Cons: This course is very old and needs a lot of work. The baskets are very rusty with a couple of them missing. The signs are poor and several of the holes are not even labled and you have no idea were to go next. Many of the holes are extremely tight and the course is a mudd hole if it rains. The tee pads are also elevated and very short. I cannot take a run up at this course without falling off the pad.
Other Thoughts: This course is in desperate need of a redo. If you live close it's good to go get some practice on. You can really work on your midrange accuracy. Do not go there looking for a fun round of 18 because you will be lucky to find 18 holes and the course it just not very well designed by todays standards and it very out of date.

Nice scenery, I guess.
Pros: Honestly, I can't think of anything to put in this box.
Cons: Lots of underbrush. Course doesn't seem as well maintained as most others in the area. Hole layout somewhat repetitive. Signs are hand drawn and sometimes missing entirely, leaving you to search for the pin yourself. Equipment is old.
Other Thoughts: The best part of my trip to this course was the cute puppy that kept following me around.

Oldie but a goodie
Pros: Shady course in the woods, great for summer play. Great technical course for beginners as holes are shorter but still force you to stay in the fairways. More experienced players can still enjoy shot shaping through tighter lines and going for birdies. Take a step back in time and play an older course that reminds us of how disc golf was in its infancy.
#1 over the rocky sinkhole is one of the best looking opening holes around. #15 also has a basket placed beyond a large sinkhole and may be the hardest hole on the course. Both are unique holes.
Cons: Gets really muddy when it rains. A couple of holes are "hidden" down a path, and depending on how you play it, you may play 17-20 holes and not realize it. Baskets, tees, and signs are older as well and show it. Some effort has been made recently to correct the hole numbering, but there is still some inconsistencies between tees, signs, and baskets.
Other Thoughts: *Navigation Update*- There is now a white number painted on each tee to help with navigation and hole order, plus a new wooden plaque tee sign for most holes. Essentially there are two #12's that are completely different, and then two #13's (that happen to play to the same basket). So after 11 you have a choice- backtrack up the fairway and play that 12/13, or walk down a trail to the other 12/13. Both finish at the same spot getting you ready for 14.
Navigation can be a little tricky, but I have taken the liberty to create a rough course map and have uploaded it here on the files tab. This should help explain the two versions of 12 and 13.
This is one of the older TN courses, the tees, signs, and baskets show their age, but the fairways are mature and well-broken in.
In a state park, so there is camping, picnicking, etc. Restrooms are at the park office.

Its Ok if you're in the neaighborhood
Pros: The shapes of the fairways can create a slight challenge. There are hyzer routes, anhyzer routes, straight shots. Fairways are well defined and groomed. There are a few benches scattered throughout the course.
Cons: The condition of the baskets and tee pads is poor. Design is outdated by today's course standards. There are multiple places where navigation becomes an issue. There is a secret, magical hole, that most people won't be able to find. Tee pads are down right dangerous. Some baskets are held in position by concrete stumps. If you land fairly close to the pin, and you throw dx plastic, you will have some chunks missing. All of the holes are relatively short and basic.
Other Thoughts: I am going to update this review since it was written so long ago. At one point this was the only course in Middle Tennessee. And you can tell that it was one of the first. Very little effort has been made to update. As evidenced by the fact that you can still actually buy lightning discs at the Ranger Station.

SAVE YOUR GAS
Pros: I am a positive guy, I really am. But the best thing about this course was that I did not blow out an ankle! It was pretty... But there was just not a whole lot to like about this course.
Cons: VERY poor markings on holes. We tried #4 3 times and STILL have yet to know what the homemade map was referring to. And the baskets are on large concrete blocks that really make it difficult. Getting there was difficult, as the Ranger at the Park Office told me to stay to the left. I toured several residential areas BECAUSE I STAYED TO THE LEFT! I finally found what appeared to be a Disc Dolg Course.
Other Thoughts: Someone really needs to ask the State to map this better. Some signs were intact, others were nailed to trees. Not a good thing when many players love nature.
