TOUR THE COURSE



Course architect, Bob Von Hagge & Bruce Devlin were never offered a more beautiful site in their worldwide 
design commissions than the rolling hills at Crockett Springs. Now, the hills are alive with golf. Iron shots and 
putts are fired with the same intensity and accuracy as the musketballs and arrows leveled on this exact site 
when it was settled in 1786 by Davy Crockett's family.

The challenge of our course is evident in its differing personalities. It can be rewarding yet demanding, even 
smiling and tempting when addressed from the membership tees. However, a sleeping giant is awakened when 
the more adventurous low handicap golfer moves back to the tournament or U. S. Open tees with tournament pin 
placements on the contoured greens.

With our commitment to a limited membership starting times are not required. The only distraction you may 
experience on the course is waiting for several deer and their fawns to cross the fairway, bob white quail 
calling their mates or pausing to watch a flock of Canadian honkers or mallards pitch in on the course lakes
signaling the change of season.

Nashville Golf & Athletic Club received national acclaim when our Signature Par 3, hole number 6 was selected 
by Sports Illustrated as one of the 18 greatest golf holes in the country. Golf Digest "USGA rankings list of
hardest U.S. courses" we are listed at #16 in the country.



1ST HOLE
PAR 4

 As a rule, great golf courses begin with a strong par 4 and Nashville Golf certainly is no exception. The opening hole is a true attention-getter! A 4-star beauty which offers an indication of the various challenges to follow. A player who drives to the crest of the hill is better served if the ball is left of center in the fairway. From this position, the slender green, protected by a lake on the left and bunkers to the right, affords a wider target from approximately 150 yards. Long hitters may choose a target to the right of the fairway driving the ball to the flat. Here, however, the approach shot may be blocked by a large oak tree located 100 yards from the center of the green, making No. 1 without question one of the most difficult holes on the course. Par here is well earned.
