5 Outstanding Nashville Golf Courses That Are Open to the Public

Nashville may not initially seem like a golfer’s oasis but there are many fantastic courses just outside the city. With so many well-manicured and easy-to-access courses in the surrounding area, it can be tough to decide where to tee up. Here are five of the best Nashville golf courses that are open to the public.


Gaylord Springs Golf Links is located just 17 minutes from the city center and is a great course for all skill levels. US Open champion Larry Nelson designed this links-style course, which was carved from the banks of the Cumberland River. The par-72 layout offers 18 holes surrounded by limestone bluffs and wetlands.

Situated just under 30 minutes from the city center, Hermitage Golf Course offers two courses of premier 18 holes. The President’s Reserve course is one of the top 10 courses in Tennessee, while the scenic Generals Retreat course played host to an LPGA event in the eighties and nineties 1988 to 1999.

Whether you’re an experienced golfer or just beginning to play, McCabe Golf Course located in West Nashville is 27 holes of perfection. The original 18 holes include tree-lined fairways and sand bunkers, providing plenty of fun challenges. The putting/chipping area and driving range is the ideal place to hone your game. You can even enlist the help of one of three PGA Professionals for individual or group lessons.


Just east of downtown Nashville is Two Rivers Golf Course in Donelson, one of the most popular Nashville Golf Courses for golfers of all skill levels. While playing from the tips offers quite a challenge, the other three tees are manageable by golfers of all levels. Take in an impressive view of the Nashville skyline at the eighth hole. Stop by the nearby famous Grand Ole Opry after you’re done for a dose of country music history.

Set in the scenic hills of Percy Warner Park, Percy Warner Golf Course is one of the most picturesque Nashville golf courses. The beautiful nine-hole layout might be a par 34 but the tree-lined fairways and hilly greens make it a challenge. Kick back at the clubhouse after a round of golf and admire the gorgeous views from the porch.
