Pros: Triple Creek Park Disc Golf Course sits just northeast of Nashville . Once in the park , the signs to the course will help you find it . There is lots of parking available for this course . Right next to the lot is a practice basket with a picnic table and a large kiosk with the course map on it . I am not sure why there was no printable map on DGR . Holes #1 and #10 both start near each other but pointing different directions . The baskets are in okay shape and will hold your putts well enough . The tees are good enough , some a bit longer than others , some pavers make up a few differences . The signage is Fine , giving you hole number , par , distance and tee to basket pictures . There is only one tee per hole but multiple pin placements on most . Some benches and trash cans throughout the course . There is nothing really in the way of elevation here , except an occasional uphill ( #7, #14 , #18 ) or downhill ( #1 , #10 ) grade . The creek barely comes into play , maybe #1 and #12 possibly . The holes will never wow you , but it is a good course to sharpen your game . What I like is that the front 9 is mostly in the woods and technical , with tight fairways ( 2-5 play very tight , with trees and brush most everywhere , but #6 is a gimme 195' as long as you miss the midway set of trees ) . #7 is a slight uphill grade going out of the woods to the green which sits pretty close to the parking lot road . #8 tee is a little confusing , you walk back towards the woods and keeping it to your right , you will be able to duck back in and play #8 , which plays in the woods but back towards the start of the course 330' , and #9 plays parallel to #1 but uphill instead of downhill and towards the kiosk . The back 9 is much more open , so if you are a local and just have time to play 9 , you have a choice with the technical front of the course or the back 9 where you can air it out more . Some decent holes on the back are #11 which the fairway runs close to the bush/tree line on the right and is open on the left .A large bush juts out at the end to protect the basket . #12 is over on the left , right next to the #13 tee going the other way . It is a shorter shot with a large tree blocking the path to the basket and a risk/reward line to a basket that has a creek dropping off right behind it . There was construction to the immediate right of 13,( I hit a bulldozer ) with the basket placement set between 2 trees on a small hill . You will have to backtrack a little to # 14's tee with sits back down the hill and between #13's basket and #11's tee pad . Your drive will go up a hill and sideways right to left to a level area and the basket . The 15 tee is in the bushes behind you and to the right , where you throw over some of the only thick brush on the course to the basket about 40'+ behind it and slightly right . You will have to walk a bit to #16 tee which is behind the ball field and along a bush line to your right and open field on the left , with the basket tucked into the end of the bush line ( kind of like #11 ) . #17 tee is over the road a little back from the #16 basket . You throw between 2 trees to a basket almost straight ahead 365' . #18 tee sits across the walking path to the right and you throw an unobstructed drive slightly uphill to an elevated basket 425' ( at least the design of the elevated is well done ). The course can be completed solo in probably an hour . There were 2 groups playing on a Sunday morning when I was here , so you likely won't have to compete for tee boxes . The course was well mowed and branches trimmed where needed . This course can be suited for everyone from newbies to maybe intermediates ( hopefully the pins are in the shorts for the newbies and casuals ) . Locals should love this course . Disc Risk : Pretty low , except maybe a ricochet into some brush to a blind basket on holes 2-5 , or the thick brush on 15 if you come up short off the tee . Signature Hole : #4 . 349' from the long position , this fairway plays tight and you will have to do some tree dodging . Take your 3 if you can and be satisfied .
Cons: #1 Safety . There is the occasional jogger or dog walker that utilizes the front 9 woods section and the cement walking trail that comes into play the last few holes . Also , a shanked drive on 12 might produce a noggin buster or a pooch popper at the dog park on the right . The #7 blast out of the woods could nip a walker or car if not careful . Please be patient and share with the other park users . #2 Back 9 Blandness . I know that the course designers tried to spruce up the back 9 with a mando , some clever pin placements and a nice elevated tee , but they seem to fall a little short of the mark . #3 " Cleanup On Aisle 15 , Please " . The dense growing weeds between the tee and basket on #15 is more of an eyesore that a rough . It would be better served if bushes or trees were planted there , instead .
Other Thoughts: I drove out here on an early Sunday morning with great weather. After reading the recent reviews of this course , It felt like I was in for a long round of mediocre disc golf . I came away from my round entertained and glad I played it . The course is configured correctly , with 9 technical holes that end where your started , and 9 open holes that pick up and end just on the other side of the parking lot . Not rock solid by any means , but a good easy walk on an evening or weekend round . Tournament tested players might think this course is too easy , but it is plenty for the rest of us hackers . The longer pin positions might make some happier . Where this course shows some of its age ( 22 yrs ) , it still makes up for it in stamina . It is the only public course for 15 miles . I would play it a lot if local . My Recommendation : Don't make a special trip , but if in the area ,it's worth playing . Stop by and grab a round or 2 .

 FUn course

Pros: This course is very playable for all skill levels. The course usually has a few players out but hardly ever gets backed up or plays slow. The new signage is great and makes it easy to navigate for first timers. The front 9 is more wooded and technical than the back. The city does a great job of keeping the course mowed very frequently. This is a great option for play when you are north of Nashville.
Cons: There are a few tee pads on the back 9 that are shorter than the front 9. There is also a walking path around the back 9 that gets used alot. Therefore golfers must be aware of the pedestrians.

Pros: Benches, trashcans, signage including arrows on trees pointing to the next hole. Practice putting basket area with concrete distance markers.
Cons: The redesign took away my favorite back 9 holes (especially the old #15), and replaced them with small poorly poured pads, with the last 2 holes throwing across a walking path.
Other Thoughts: First of all, I always underestimate what a haul it is to get out there from Nashville.

The front 9 is mostly in the woods with a good variety of shots with a few holes having mulitple pin placements.

#1 pin was across the creek with no bridge to get across; just a few rocks that might get swallowed up if the creek was up (this is where I would've put the redesign money/labor).
#2 is across the street. It's a 90 degree dogleg left.
#3 is a 90 degree dogleg right up a 10' incline that can send missed putts rolling.
#4 is tight and tough from the deep position, but it was moved up this time, making for a pretty easy 3, despite nailing an early tree on the tight fairway.
The #5 tight fairway also requires precision. A good flick would be rewarded. It has a few pin placements, too.
#6 is a fun guarded ace run.
#7 is an uphill out of the woods. From #7 basket, navigation to 8 can get a little confusing.
#8 is tucked back in the woods as you walk back down the hill toward the bridge.
#9 is across the street at the bottom of the hill throwing back up towards the parking lot.
This is where the good times end, and I noticed the locals didn't even play the back 9.
#14 is a tight double mando up the hill.
#15 has a crappy pad with a pile of mulch in front of a 300' straight away.
#16 is an open field with a crappy pad tucked slightly into the tree line, and the basket tucked into the same tree line next to the walking path.
#17 is a crappy pad throwing thru a tight window of trees and across the walking path.
#18 tee is back across the path throwing across it to an elevated basket.

The way the course finishes always leaves me questioning the redesign and whether I'll ever play it again. But I seem to make an annual trip out there just to remind myself why I don't like playing it.

The big complaint before the redesign was the back 9 was "pasture golf." The boring #13 was eliminated, but now you have to walk back from #12 to play the old 17&18 as 13&14. A bunch of time and money was spent to eliminate one hole, replacing better built pads with 2 forgettable holes and 2 pedestrian hazards. So disappointing.

 Better than it's overall rating

Pros: 1. Benches and Trashcans

2. Tee signs and concrete pads

3. Great mix of wooded and open holes

4. Must use a lot of different shot types

5. Not much trouble areas with pedestrians although there is a few holes near sidewalks
Cons: Cant really think of any.
Other Thoughts: I never played the course before they did the update of 6 holes on the back 9 so I imagine that's why the current overall rating is as low as it is. Don't pay attention to that. This is a solid course with a great variety of shots and is in a pretty nice park. Enjoy!

 Really Not That Bad

Pros: Front 9 is mostly woods and technical shots. Back 9 is letting it rip while minding a couple of mandos.

Front 9 circles back around to the parking lot. Tee pads to 1 and 10 are actually right next to each other facing opposite directions, so technically you can start on either half of the course.

Course map at the beginning. Backside of the map has each hole listed with distance and par. Take a picture of the course map because it may come in handy later.

Practice basket. Just don't throw at it when you're teeing off on hole 9.

Yes, all the baskets are there.

Cons: Holes 2 and 8 play dangerously close to the driveway. May have to watch out for cars and whatnot.

Tee signs on a few holes are hidden. We were Pretty sure we were at hole 3 but couldn't see any indication of it until we found the sign covered by some brush on the left.

Hole 13 doesn't have a tee sign at all. You can see the tee pad for 14 down the way, though, so if you throw in that direction you'll find the 13th basket pretty easily on the right.
Other Thoughts: We went while it was drizzling, so we were the only ones out there. That's always a plus for me. Your experience may vary depending on the crowd that day.

Mind the fence on hole 12.

Some reviews seemed to make this out to be a godawful course. It's not *special* by any means, but in certainly isn't terrible.

Pros: There are baskets, not all of them are there but this is somewhere different to throw. No one is ever there.
Cons: Missing basket. No trash cans. Hole 1 from the start is pretty much a lucky shot. Dangerous and annoying pin positions/layout. Summertime is very nasty out in that desolate field.
Other Thoughts: Least played course in this area. Almost no reason to get out there with Sanders Ferry, Cedar HIll and Seven Oaks being much more fun and closer to me. Not really worth the drive after the first time.

Pros: Triple Creek provides for a nice shot selection on the front nine and some wide open shots on the back nine to let loose on. The tee pads are good size and grippy (important because I played it while it was snowing). The signs are adequate and the flow of the course is easy to follow. There aren't any spots where you can get lost in and the course sits away from most other activities in the park aside from the fenced off dog park. The design nicely uses the creeks flowing through the park on a lot of the putting greens. The front nine tests your technical ability through mostly wooded and mostly flat holes. Several holes play perpendicular to a tree line to add a little luck to the course while most of the others play through moderate to heavy woods. The rough is thick enough that straying too far in will cost you at least a stroke. Only three holes on the front have any real elevation changes. The back nine has mostly open holes with baskets tucked in along the tree line and next to the creek. Most of these holes are flat with only a few giving any change in grade. Nice use of the double mando on number 18 to channel shots through the tree line.
Cons: First thing I noticed was on the walk between 3 and 4, you come to within 15 feet behind of number 6's basket. That's a big safety issue in my book since I see number 6 as an ace run hole in which throws can easily sail right past the basket. Several other tee pads can also be in danger of being hit by an errant throw. Several times on the back nine, there are multiple tees within 30 feet of each other. I normally wouldn't mention this but its obvious to me that this would slow play down a lot during tournaments while waiting for one group to not distract another group. The posts on which the tee signs are placed are physically touching the tee pad so in case you want to approach the pad from a certain angle, you can't because the post is in the way. With the course being in a lower point in the park near the creeks, drainage can be an issue with pools of standing water common on the back nine. The fairway to number 12 floods as well. As I have noticed with numerous HB courses, the course will lead out to a certain point with no real resolution to the loop so there's one overly long hole to get back towards the rest of the course. This is the same at Triple Creek where number 16 is the huge bomber hole that feels out of place compared to all the other holes in the park.
Other Thoughts: Noticed there are no trash cans anywhere on the course so pack all of your stuff in and out to keep this course clean. Maybe it was just the day I was playing it (snowing, overcast, cold) but the wind can be a big factor in disc selection at Triple Creek. Overall this course can be fun for players of all skill levels. It provides good shots for less skilled players to learn and perfect while giving more skilled players a chance to post some low scores. Several of the holes on the front nine strongly remind me of Veterans Park in Lexington, KY in that they're wooded with a nice creek flowing parallel to the fairway. I wouldn't consider Triple Creek to be a must play in the Nashville area but would be a good warm up to go play Sanders Ferry or if you're in the area with time to spare for a round.

*Nice variety of short and long holes (dad).
Cons: *Trees were too close together (son).
*Missing basket #7 (dad).
Other Thoughts: *We could not find hole #17. Finished #16, but #17 was not there. We skipped and went onto #18.
