Cookeville Golf Club
Greens rolled well
The greens were true and pace was good. I didn't like that the rough had old, cut grass laying on top. Staff is friendly and professional. Good local course that gets a lot of play.

Looking forward to a morning golf outing with my wife and course was in ok shape but the groundskeepers were very rude. We were approaching one of the greens and instead of letting us finish the hole, a worker plugs in his hose and starts watering the green. He motioned us to play and his hose interfered with our shots. Just very frustrating when you pay money to play a nice course and they treat you that way.

Not what it used to be
The cookeville golf club is a staple of the city and very well known to the golfers of the area. With its emmense history it's hard to not go there expecting a great day of golf. After a few games there recently I have been very disappointed. The grass is swamping if it's rained at all during the week. The rough is lets just say, rougher than what is acceptable to play on. They are very big fans of the carts on path only rule. But you can expect big chunks of the path to be missing, littered with potholes or be connected at the other end of the fairway, but remember, "carts on path only!" As your making your way from one path to the next you might be encountered by oneof there numerous disgruntled employees who race around all over the fairway with their own golf cart to come and tell you to stay on the path. Overall, dealing with this facility is a headache. You'd be better off just going to ironwood or white plains golf course if you're looking for a relaxing day out on the course. They really all seem to have the same difficulty. The cookeville golf club however is riding the coat tails of its founders glory days and refuse to put money into the upkeep of the course.

Fun course, unwelcoming staff
Course is fun, kept up around tournament times so look for thay, on the downside I have been playing at this course for the past 3 years and I've never had good service. (I bring at Least one person with me about 5 times a month)
This most recent time visiting was the last straw,
I believe his name is Matt and he was extremely rude and I will not be returning because of him. If you use Golf Now or are not a member at the club, he wants nothing to do with you and you're wasting his time. Staff friendliness is the most important factor in getting returning customers.

This is a fairly easy fun course! Won't lose many balls... Favors a driver who pushes drives to the right! The tee boxes need some attention but it's early in the year. The rest of the course was in decent shape and should only get better as the weather warms up!!

Staff and course condition
First, the course manager named Matt is very unfriendly. He is very welcoming to Club Members but if you're a Golf Now user he is quite the opposite. He seems irritated at Golf Now users and even made a comment saying "they are practically giving it away" and "the club gets no money from this". (Referencing the deals you get from golf now) As a paying customer and a player fairly new to this sport, this is very discouraging. I like to take advantage of these deals local courses offer as I am trying to getting as many rounds in and as much practice as possible. I have recently looked in to buying a membership at a local course but after service like that, Cookeville Country Club is off my list! On top of poor service the facility is outdated and the condition of the course is poor. The greens are good but fairways, tee boxes, and the surrounding areas are unkempt. I can overlook all that ,but with the poor customer service Matt provides to non-members, I'd rather take my business elsewhere.

Gave the appearance of a true private country club than gas run low on money or list support of it's membership. Best quality was above average greens and friendly staff. Very poor fairways and bunkers.
