There is considerable history to be discussed when examining the Nashville Golf & Athletic Association, namely that relations of famed pioneer Davy Crockett once called the property home. Members are equally excited to tell visitors, however, about a more recent bit of history:
Not long after the Bruce Devlin and Robert von Hagge-designed course opened during 1971, Sports Illustrated chose to feature the par three 6th as one of its “Great 18 Holes in America” feature. The butterfly-shaped green is surrounded on all sides by large bunkers. Although a special short hole, players will notice a similar theme across the course, which features 76 sand hazards, very few of them small.
When stretched out to its full length, nearly 7,500 yards, the Nashville Golf will require quite an athletic performance to conquer.
