The VinnyLinks at Shelby Park is a par 28, nine-hole golf course that plays to a maximum of yardage 2420. The facility has bermuda greens, driving range (mats and grass), practice green and a short game area with bunker. The course is open for public play, however, kids get top priority during summer weekday and fall after school programs.

The Learning Center is 7,500 square feet and features a classroom, computer lab, two simulators, a social area and a large porch that features rocking chairs and unique benches. The club storage area houses the golf clubs used by most of the participants, who get to use them at no charge as long as they are returned in good condition.

For Rutherford County residents, we have programs at Smyrna Municipal Golf Course and Bloomfield Links (located near Old Fort Golf Club).
