According to the city, 30,000 rounds of golf a year are played at Galloway Golf Course (shown), compared to 3,000 rounds at Davy Crockett Golf Course in Frayser. Davy Crockett could become a community garden and orchard under a tentative plan the city parks and neighborhoods division is exploring.

The tentative plan by the city parks and neighborhoods division includes mountain-bike trails around the borders of the 18-hole golf course and walking trails with workout equipment.
