About Golf Club of Tennessee
The origin of The Golf Club of Tennessee dates back to the 1980s when Nashville businessmen Toby Wilt and George Gillett first conceived of building a “fine golf club in or near the city.” Finding a piece of property in rural Cheatham County, the two men invited Bronson Ingram, chairman of Nashville-based Ingram industries to join them as founders of a club that would provide dedicated golfers an excellent course in an exceptionally maintained environment of seclusion and exclusivity, an ideal that would become the Golf Club of Tennessee.
Though Gillett left the project after purchasing Vail, Inc. in Colorado, Wilt and Ingram forged ahead, selecting Tom Fazio, one of the top architects in the country, to bring their concept to life. With about one thousand acres at his disposal, and marching orders to “design the very best golf course” he was capable of, Fazio went to work “discovering” a masterpiece. Opening for member play in March 1991 the golf course gained instant national recognition, receiving runner-up honors in Golf Digest’s rankings of Best New Private Courses for 1991.
Working out of a temporary clubhouse for the first few years, the Golf Club moved into a permanent 21,000 square foot structure in 1994. Featuring an antebellum design, the two-story clubhouse housed the cart storage area, the golf shop, locker rooms and dining facilities as well as five Clubhouse Suites located on the second floor. Over the intervening years, the clubhouse has been expanded to its present 31,000 square feet.
In 2012, The Golf Club added the Ingram Cabin. This three-building structure, which includes two sleeping cabins and a "public" cabin, is the perfect complement to the Clubhouse Suites, ensuring The Golf Club's standing as one of the South's premier golf destinations.
Considered one of the top three courses in the state, The Golf Club of Tennessee has hosted numerous local, state and national amateur and pro-am events and is the site of The Vinny, an annual event that attracts top names in the golf, entertainment and business worlds. In addition, the Music City Bowl Charity Cup, sponsored by Franklin American Mortgage and hosted by PGA TOUR player and Golf Club member Brandt Snedeker, is held each October at the Golf Club.
True to the founders’ vision, The Golf Club remains a quiet place, a place to escape, a place to unwind, a place to enjoy friends…and a place to play a little golf.
