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.


The first of 5 pure 3-shot par 5's on the course. Two fairway bunkers guard the right side of the fairway. The fairway graciously flows with the gentle sloping mounds so the distance of the second shot must be decided in order to determine direction. The third shot from the rough can be disastrous. The undulating green is wide but very shallow. It is designed to accept short iron shots and is protected front and rear by bunkers. The third shot requires pin-point accuracy on club selection. There is no room for error if the pin placement is in the center of the green and little opportunity for a rolling third shot. Contours on the green are fairly easy and 20-foot birdie putts can be made.
