The Golf Club of Tennessee

The Golf Club of Tennessee
Kingston Springs, TN
In the early 1990s, Tom Fazio, assisted by longtime associate Tom Marzolf, designed a sprawling golf-only layout just west of Nashville. They routed it over 317 acres, incorporating dense forest, rocky ridges and a river valley. Its first two holes play along the flat valley of Brush Creek, while the par-4 third runs uphill through thick trees to a green site on a bluff overlooking the valley. Four, a 200-yard par 3, requires a carry over a chasm that drops to the river. The par-3 eighth plays directly over the river, while the dogleg-right par-4 ninth hugs its rocky edge. After the par-3 10th, in a box-canyon to a green backdropped by tall shale outcropping and cascading springs, much of the back nine is in open meadowland. Sixteen is yet another par 3 over Brush Creek, the short par-5 17th has narrow dual fairways and par-4 18th doglegs left over the river. Fairways are Zoysia grass, greens are Penncross bent grass and roughs are fescue, native grasses and wildflowers.

Harpeth Hills Golf Course
Public
Harpeth Hills Golf Course
Nashville, TN
This Nashville municipal course was originally designed in 1965 and underwent an extensive renovation in 1991. Often considered one of the best public options in Nashville, Harpeth Hills features numerous domed greens that require precise iron play and deft short-game touch. The greens, which were resurfaced in 2017, often play firm and fast, placing further emphasis on short-game finesse. With rates on weekdays under $30 and under $40 on weekends, it’s hard to find a better value.
