Needs some TLC...

Pros: - Set in a clean and tidy multiuse park.
- Five and six were a nice change of pace from the first four holes. Five was an almost top of the world type shot that works great with an OS disc on a RHBH. Six was a fun little hole with a REALLY deep ravine with a small creek in the middle. The creek seems like where you'd want to land a drive with a OS disc.
- I like that porous concrete was used on a lot of the tee pads. I've never played on anything like that and honestly it was just like playing on normal concrete. Well constructed, flat, level and grippy.
- While many of the signs were kinda trashed or missing the ones that were there looked pretty good. Unfortunately, the frames holding the signs really need to be replaced.
- The multiple pin options were great for the most part.
- 8 had an elevated basket which was a nice touch on a short left to right hole.
- The park has an interesting view of the river and the industrial area on the other side. Others may not like that but I found it interesting.
- 16 was a way cool downhill shot. Maybe I liked it because I parked a hyzer-flipped Heat.
Cons: - The first 4 holes are your typical and bland multiuse holes on mowed grass with big trees scattered throughout. Blah.
- I hate to admit this but I skipped 17. The fairway is a hard right to left slope and there is a rather busy roadway on the left hand side below the hill. It would be real easy for a disc to stand up and roll down to the roadway. Plus, RH newb-hyzers are going to be a real problem here with this kind of traffic.
- I appreciate whoever is putting the next tee signs on the baskets but a lot are missing and #2 was pointing the wrong way. Get the map from this site or plan on wandering the course for a while.
- 10 throws next to the busy road that bisects the course.
- 11 plays pretty close to some sort of sewage treatment station with very tall fencing around it and some very angry looking barbed wire on it. Hucker, you are not jumping that fence.
- 12 throws up toward the roadway and the basket is tucked inside a U shaped brick wall. Not sure how I feel about that one being so close to the roadway. Noticed that one of the other pin positions is literally 5' from the edge of the road. This does not seem like a great idea.
- 14 has another tall fence with more angry barbed wire on top. This fence is on the downhill side of the fairway on the right. Fortunately there is a lot of fairway to work with on the left.
- 16 has a crazy drop off in front of the tee. Be super careful teeing off here. Thats a broken leg waiting to happen. Yikes.
- Then there's hole 19...Where exactly am I throwing to? To that basket by the porta jon with all the cars parked around it? Yeah, pass.
Other Thoughts: Not a con or a pro..but a little mystifying: Thirteen has a mando. Who exactly is throwing to the right side of that tree so close to the tee pad??
So I guess I am not as enamoured with this course as others have been. And before you mark this review as "not helpful" remember that a 2.0 rating means "reasonable." It's not terrible but it certainly isn't great either. Also, while I would love to rate this course higher I am having a hard time justifying doing so when I feel like one of the holes really needs to be pulled (17). The wooded holes were a cool little break from the wide open bland holes and I wish there was more woods for this course to work with. It appears this course gets a BUNCH of disc golf traffic in this busy city. Frankly, with all those players in this area there really is no reason for the signage and benches to be in that shape. This is not a bad course that most any disc golf community would be happy to have so Nashville DG scene get out there and take care of this place. Seriously.
