Fine City Park Golf!
Pros: For me, the details here bump this course from a 3.5 to a 4. The maintenance is immaculate. The teepads are fantastic and probably grippy on a rainy day. Signs are aesthetically pleasing and informative. Navigation is simple, aided by "next tee" signs hooked on the bottom of each basket. Benches are top-notch and in all the right spots. The first four holes are classic city park: open with elevation but enough trees to shape lines to the baskets. Holes 5-6, 8-11 use elevation and tight lines through the trees to add difficulty. 14-16 let you air it out with open(ish) holes between 330 and 600ft. 17-19 bring you back to your typical city park design. Each hole has character.
Cons: Multiple pin positions are always a good thing, but when there are 2-4 on each hole with no marker of the current position on the sign, that's a con. It seems like Naval Hill has a good budget for disc golf and plenty of care from the locals. I'd hope that eventually they'd add a position marker to these great signs. Most of the time, you can easily guess which position the baskets are in but there are a few holes that required a short march down the fairway to verify the placement. (Update: just looked at pics posted a few years ago here and I see some screws on the signs designating the pin but I can't recall seeing those last week. Did I somehow miss that?!) Other than the trouble with finding pin positions, it's hard to complain here. The difficulty isn't too crazy with only one legit par 4 hole (600ft #15).
Other Thoughts: This was a great stop while visiting Nashville for a few days. It's minutes from downtown and surrounded by the hip East Nashville neighborhood. Add this to your list to play along with Cedar HiIll and Seven Oaks.
