100 GREATEST/BEST IN STATE SCORES
1 / 5
“Even with property size limitations, Belle Meade’s layout did not have any limitations as it varied with short, medium and long par 3s, 4s, and 5s. The routing used the natural landscape as it was designed specifically the creek that was involved throughout most of the front nine making good use of a natural hazard. The fairways were firm and fast, although the runoff areas around the greens were not shaved, allowing for slightly wayward approach shots to remain on the fringe instead of falling off into collection areas."
2 / 5
“Very interesting front 9 that is unique for Ross "city club" courses. It is always in very good shape."
3 / 5
“An old Donald Ross touched up by Rees Jones. The course sits on a small piece of property but makes the most of it. The 4th and 5th holes are 2 of the more unique out there and hard to imagine being built the way they were on the property with the ridge line."
4 / 5
“Great club with an outstanding front nine and a more pedestrian back nine."
5 / 5
“Challenging layout, but playable. Conditions were outstanding. Service was well above average."
