Forrest Crossing Golf Course
Busy and worn
Played on a Thursday, course was packed and I heard from locals that was normal on good weather days. They were still calling tee time starts over the PA when I finished at 2:00! Course was in pretty rough shape, not enough watering, and considering the wet spring we had that's pretty sad. The greens were rock hard and fast as concrete. Never had to fix a single ball mark!
However, for a decent course in Nashville with free lunch combo you can't beat the price. Staff was nice and the food was good.

Greens in good shape, fairways not quite there yet
Greens were in good shape. Fairways are starting to come back.

Everything was in decent shape after a fair amount of rain this week. Course is starting to green up. There is some tough holes here, its all about placement, not too long of a course. Only had to hit driver on a couple holes. The deal thru golf now with meal, range balls and reduced green fees is on probably the best deal in the area for the price, very reasonable.

Decent for 25 bucks
New to the Nashville area and come across this place on golf now for $28 so I booked it becuase who wouldn't looking at the only picture they have online. Once I arrived I had to wait to hit a bucket of balls because the range was packed. The grass on the course was already starting to dry up / burn up. The greens were the best part of the course. Yet they were pretty bumpy in spots but in other spots the ball rolled true. The fairways were pretty dead. The ball rolled out way to much and would often exit the "fairway". The lay out of the course was awesome. I just wished the course had some more moisture in it. Over all knowing the course a little now I would possibly consider playing it again but for no more then 25 bucks.

Course is still in rough shape from winter flooding. Greens rolled true but very slow. Fairways in poor shape. It's standard. By summer I'm sure the course will be back in good shape

Giving up on this course
I have played here many times and there seems to always be an issue with pace of play. Rangers are out there but not doing anything to help move along play. Also booking way to close. It was our tee time and we had to wait to tee off because someone was still in the middle of the fairway, needless to say this continued all day. I had to stop after 9 on a weekday starting at 1:45 because it took 3 hours to play 9. I don't usually have 6 hours to play golf on a weekday.

Great holes/bad shape
For a local course this will always be a great play. The conditions however are horrible. Several of the wholes near the river have silt covering the fairways. The tee boxes are always tough and not well kept. However, the greens were incredible and this course has some really good holes that challenge every golfer. It's just the turf is never good here. No matter the time of year.

A cow pasture has more grass
I have tried to give this place numerous chances each year. I grew up 15 minutes away and would say I have played this course in excess of 75+ times. They make sure they have full foursomes and stack them every EIGHT MINUTES!!!..don't believe me? look at the tee time intervals on Golfnow. I told the ranger there is a reason that professional golfers go off in twosomes every 10 minutes...BECAUSE THAT'S HOW LONG IT TAKES THEM TO PLAY TO KEEP THE TRAFFIC MOVING. 4 dudes who are 25 handicaps every 8 minutes clearly states they only care about making money and not promoting the game. Not complaining about the water on the course because it has rained quite a bit lately....with that being said..the course is in absolute terrible shape. 90% of the fairways are mud and tree branches..sorry i cant explain but I have pictures. The fringes around the greens are HARDPAN. This is how the course always is since they basically don't water past the end of May. THIS ROUND TOOK US 6 HOURS!! AND EVERYONE IN MY GROUP IS SUB 10 HANDICAP!!! If they spent as much time working on their course as they did my turkey/swiss I had for lunch it would be a miracle. BTW she made my sandwich in 5 minutes.
