Rankings

The Belle Meade Country Club is one of Nashville’s oldest private clubs and is one of several golf courses that Donald Ross blessed the state of Tennessee with.

There has been considerable contributions to the design throughout the years, most notably from Robert Trent Jones during the early ‘50s (which explains the intimidating peninsular green at No. 16). The dammed Belle Meade branch makes provides the signature hazard at the club, as the widened waterway provides a few forced carries.

The course comes in at just under 6,900 yards from the back tees, and many of the par fours will not be too frightening for the long-hitting player (aside from the tree-lined fairways, which enforce the need for accuracy). If a tiger has become comfortable with these relatively short distances by the time he reaches hole No. 17, Ross has a few wake-up calls before he sends them home. That hole is the longest par five at Belle Meade, more than 50 yards longer than the next-longest hole on the course. The closing par four is not too far from being the shortest par five at the club; at 478 yards, it’s less than 25 yards from the mark.
