The Good is what Highland Rim used to be, a beautiful course friendly staff from the owner to the grounds personal.
The Bad,
The name "Nashville National" really! it sounds like an airport or a car rental company or an insurance company and it's name is turning it's nose up to the locals of Joelton and Pleasant View. Prices on everything have been raised food, drinks, and everything in proshop to include greens fees and memberships.
The Ugly, The greens are in the worst shape of any course I have been to, they are ruff and dried out and slow. you can't ever play all 18 because the greens are either damaged or attempting to be repaired by inexperienced staff, not the staffs fault just that the owner is too cheap to pay for professionals. they don't even have a full time Superintendent.
Who wants to fight nashville traffic and drive 40 minutes only to be disappointed and pay more for it. They do have a nice website now but it is riddled with Bait and Switch statements to sucker you in. the website says "Not a single home fronts the course - and never will " yet the first thing you see after passing the Highland Rim logo (which is airbrushed over on the website to read Nashville National) is a run down unmaintained rental house. The website says "new ownership is taking this course and its amenities in a new direction. You'll likely see something new, different, or improved every time you visit" WOW! what a false statement, this place has gone Way Downhill since the new owner has taken over. The pictures of the course on the website are breathtaking but are all from what the previous owners accomplished and maintained. . If you do go beware of what was one of the coolest features of the course The Bridge over the river going to #10 it is now Broken Cracked and has many holes you can see right through it, be careful it is unsafe! Don't take my word for it go see for yourself. If you do i'm sure you won't ever go back.

This is a can't miss golf course to go to. They have worked VERY hard to improve the course and replaced the greens. See the web sites for details. But the staff goes over and beyond to make sure you have a GREAT outing. The course is challanging so bring your A game.I have been treated extremly well on every visit so I can't ask for anymore. keep up the great work!!!!!

I was very impressed by this course and the general niceness of the people that work there. The course got a a bit backed up by what appeared to be a juniors tournament, but no more than a popular course on a weekend. Overall a very good course that will challenge you with layout rather than length. Lots of well placed hazards and blind shots throughout.

I'm from pretty far out of town, but I have family that lives in Nashville. Every time I visit, even if only for a weekend, we play this course. The scenery is exhilarating, and the greens are some of the best in the area. I have never met a nicer staff, and the course can be challenging enough for a 5 handicap to enjoy, but easy enough for my little boy to enjoy too!
