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.



2ND HOLE
PAR 4

This straightaway par 4 is played into the prevailing southerly winds. Mounds along the left side of the fairway often protect an errant shot from the out-of-bounds stakes but a well-placed drive is center or right-center. Bunkers are in the front and rear. The contour of the green slopes smartly toward the left front. There is a tendency to under-club on the approach shot. If the pin is located to the left, the landing area shrinks considerably and the rear bunker becomes a prominent factor. In order to have a run at birdie, the ball must be below the hole. A Par here is well earned.
