Private Courses

  1. Brentwood Country Club

5123 Country Club Drive, Brentwood, TN 37027

  1. The Governors Club

9681 Concord Rd, Brentwood, TN 37027

  1. Nashville Golf and Athletic Club

1703 Crockett Springs Trail, Brentwood, TN 37027

“Through the placement of four sets of tees, the course can be an entertaining 6,340-yard "member trip" (5,121 yards for women members) or stretched to a demanding 7,440 yards in which the sleeping giant is awakened and all 76 bunkers figure prominently in the par 72 journey. The thrill of a well-struck shot is rewarded. The poorly-played stroke is costly. But, in either case, replaying the round is enhanced by the time-honored atmosphere of the game with the clubhouse surroundings in the tradition of the "Honorable Company of Edinburgh Golfers". The mood here is strictly golf.”

The course path provides an inspired variety of holes playing through lush fields and around lakes and streams.”

South Course - “The par 71 South Course, 71 measuring 7,100 yards, takes players through verdant fields winding in the shadow of historic Roper’s Knob hillside. With a mix of wooded and open spaces, the South Course offers a unique and challenging golf experience.”
