Ted Rhodes Golf Course

Nashville, Tennessee | 18 holes | Links | Par: 72 | 6669 yards

Ted Rhodes Golf Course sits on the Cumberland River's North Nashville banks, and was originally named the Cumberland Golf Course, after that body of water, back when it only had nine holes, first laid out way back in 1953. A 1992 redesign added nine more holes, and nowadays golfers get 18 holes of links-style golf, complete with lakes and bunkers that make for good times. Big greens provide big targets for approaches on this walkable golf course.

The par-72 Ted Rhodes Golf Course measures 6,669 yards from the Blue tees, and offers a fourth set of tees that play to 5,010 yards for the ladies. A round of golf kicks off big on a par-5 hole that comes in at 555 yards from the Blue tee, one of two long holes, with the back nine also opening on a 534-yard hole. With that in mind, the golf course concludes with a relative whimper, on a par-4 hole that measures just 432 yards from the Blue tee.

Something to look for on the Ted Rhodes Golf Course is the fauna: Turtles, fish, muskrats and beavers all make their homes in the golf course's lakes and river.

    Maintenance is horrible and no marshal to ensure rate of play or any golf etiquette.
    The price should be 18 dollars for 18 holes, cart included.

    This course is beautiful but the lack of maintanance makes it very unpleasant to the eye. Trash is always lying around the waters edge, no one to ensure that the players are running on time. A lot of things need to be fixed but it is either a lack of funds or the manager just don't care about their course they manage. The back nine needs a lot of work, but metro won't spend the money. This is a very historical golf course, but no one cares.
