I got to play Cedar Hill Park
, Seven Oaks Park
and Sharp Springs Park -- the three top-rated courses around Nashville. Basically, Nashville has five pretty good courses and another couple of so-so courses. Bowling Green, KY, is just about an hour North, with a whole mess of courses...
However, having played some of the top Bowling Green courses, I think Cedar Hill in Nashville is better than anything Bowling Green has to offer. I joined up with a couple of locals and that course is great -- especially when they stretch the pins to the longer positions. Gorgeous course with tons of elevation and a great mix of cedars and hardwoods. Lush green grass and a stellar mix of open and woods holes with some true par 4s mixed in when everything is in the longs.
Sharp Springs is pretty good - mostly flat but some very memorable holes -- one over a small pond in a valley to elevated rocks with a pin tucked in the middle, others around a cornfield and other water hazards. Strange course, but decent mix of shots. Good for working other parts of your game. Not a great course, but decent.
Seven Oaks is just a few miles from downtown and 2-3 miles from the airport entrance -- perfect to play if you are there on business. It is a gorgeous course with a pretty decent mix of shots. They don't maximize the land as well as they could, and there are one or two pinball holes that are frustrating, but there are a lot of places you will be happy with your three, and a lot of great birdie opportunities that can turn into 4s quickly when you miss your lines. Also, there is a 3-hole bonus loop in the middle of the course that I missed the first time through until a different group of locals showed me it existed -- the bonus three holes are tight and beautiful, and a fun "secret" in a way.
Cedar Hills is without question the standout beauty -- both for variety of terrain and for lushness of the course. It's also apparently pretty deserted most of the time, so it's easy to get in a round. Seven Oaks on the other hand (as well as Sharp Springs, but to a lesser degree) are both pretty busy. It was just amazing to me that the best course for 100-miles in any direction is also one of the least played.
So if you're there, try Cedar Hills, then Seven Oaks, then Sharp Springs. The other two I didn't get to are Sander's Ferry and Crockett park -- both of which I hope to hit someday, but apparently are just a tick behind the other three in terms of overall quality, but are still well worth the time.
Locals I met were friendly -- and there is a TN Website. No maps anywhere for courses, but picture tours are on their Web site. Most holes have the pin-placement marked by a band of wire around the teesign -- you'll see what I mean. But those help IMMENSELY, since some holes have as many as six pin placements.
Jeremy--enjoy Nashville. Definitely a good disc golf scene, and with KY as your upstairs neighbor, you'll never be at a loss for weekend roadtrip destinations.
