Hole-by-Hole Gallery

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.


This is the only Par 4 on the course with a blind tee shot. An acceptable target for the drive is the gap in the far away hills. The fairway is protected by a small forest on the left and a hillside on the right. There is a tendency, as on the 2nd hole, for the golfer to under club their approach iron. A grass green-side bunker is in front of the green and a bunker is at the rear. This enormous green is undulating and extremely quick toward the left side. Pay particular attention in placing the ball close to the hole, rather than the front of the green. A ball left short of the green is almost impossible to get up and down. Best birdie opportunity on the back 9.
