Good Diversity of shots
- Technical Shots on front 9 are very challenging and unique
- Requires good decision making
- Back9 has been reworked to avoid tall grass. New holes are great
Technical holes and Open holes are not mixed well. Feels like two 9 holes back to back.
This course is certainly better than some of the reviews suggest. I think it's the 4th best in the Nashville area.
Triple Creek provides for a nice shot selection on the front nine and some wide open shots on the back nine to let loose on. The tee pads are good size and grippy. The signs are adequate and the flow of the course is easy to follow. There aren't any spots where you can get lost in and the course sits away from most other activities in the park aside from the fenced off dog park. The design nicely uses the creeks flowing through the park on a lot of the putting greens. The front nine tests your technical ability through mostly wooded and mostly flat holes. Several holes play perpendicular to a tree line to add a little luck to the course while most of the others play through moderate to heavy woods. The rough is thick enough that straying too far in will cost you at least a stroke. Only three holes on the front have any real elevation changes. The back nine has mostly open holes with baskets tucked in along the tree line and next to the creek. Most of these holes are flat with only a few giving any change in grade. Nice use of the double mando on number 18 to channel shots through the tree line.
This was a pretty good course. Like people have said, this is like 2 courses made into 1. The front 9 is a lot harder with it going through the woods but you can make up for it on the back 9 as it is mostly wide open. It is a good intermediate course that I recommend playing at least once. If you are very good at disc golf you shouldn't have a hard time with this course. There are many opportunities to get a few birdies and many pars. The course does a good job with having signs on every hole besides one and it does a good job of locating you to the next hole so that you don't get lost. All the tee pads have concrete which is a big plus.
Hardly anyone was there, a range of shots needed. I've played pretty much all the Middle Tennessee courses and found this one to be extremely difficult for some reason, course design is not great. I'm not completely sure as to why I didn't really like this course. I will have to say that I found this course to be extremely difficult to score well. I guess it was the overall layout. I'm not a fan of heavily wooded, tight shots and this course has plenty of those. One hole is very narrow. 300+ feet and the left side is a barb wire fence. If you are a backhand player, what are you supposed to do?
This is a decent course. The first hole is a nice downhill shot through a row of trees, the second is a typical hyzer shot. Then, enter the woods for a lefty/sidearm shot, followed by 2 more holes with long wooded fairways. There are a few easy birdies on the front, but the wooded holes are fun and provide a challenge.
The back 9... well, I have to say the front 9 and back 9 are completely different. For almost all the shots on the back 9 you are throwing a long drive with trees either on your right or on your left. You will be fighting the wind of most of these shots, with all of them being 300+. The highlight of the back 9 was a 500+ foot monster with a 5 foot window about 20 feet from the tee. The rest of the back 9 was forgettable. Some pretty typical holes at this course that you could find anywhere else. Lack of continuity in the layout. Goes from short and technical to long and open. Not a bad course, but there are about 5 or 6 really great courses within 1 hour.
