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.



4TH HOLE
PAR 4

This hole is often regarded as the strongest of the par 4's. It is uphill from tee to the fairway landing area requiring both length and accuracy to reach the sharply sloping green in 2 shots. The plateau landing area for the drive is protected on the right by a lateral hazard and the left rough leaves an awkward below your feet stance for a long iron or fairway wood to the narrow entrance of the green. The green-side bunkers are on the right front and rear. This is probably the most deceiving green on the course to read accurately. Long approach putts get out of position very easily. Bogey here quite possible.
