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.



9TH HOLE
PAR 4

From the tee this hole offers another spectacular view and a truly fine challenge for closing out the front nine. A well placed drive of 215 yards will leave you with a shot around 150 yards to the green. Long hitters who move the ball past the plateau are confronted with a down hill lie to a green both narrow and protected by bunkers front and rear. Again, there is no chance to roll the ball into this putting surface. A missed approach shot brings on a very difficult chip from the bunkers or the fringe. Good opportunity to make par.
