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.



16TH HOLE
PAR 4

An excellent testy Par 4, this hole includes a double lateral water hazard on the left and three fairway bunkers to the right. The big hitters may gamble on carrying a corner of the lake but a better line is towards the right corner of the second fairway bunker. Again, the huge green, largest on the course, is protected by a series of bunkers front left and right. The putting surface slopes forward and to the right affording numerous, excellent, pin placement locations for the long iron approaches. Big swale contours produce double breakers on 20-foot putts. Bogeys frequent.
