Williamson County Real Estate: Nashville Golf and Athletic - A historical location

Nashville Golf and Athletic - A historical location

Brentwood tn real estate - Does anyone know that the clubhouse of Nashville Golf and Athletic center was originally built in the 1700's by Davy Crocketts family? It's hard to believe that part of this beautiful 10,000 square ft clubhouse is over 200 years old. 

 In 1786, Andrew Crockett, an uncle of the famous woodsman Davy Crockett, received a land-grant deed to 640 acres and had chosen the site for their new home. It was the 10th year after the War of Independence, and the pioneer spirit was flourishing.
Part of the original Crockett home has been restored as the library of the clubhouse. 
 The sheer beauty of the 187 acre course is highlighted by the numerous views of the rolling countryside. From several of the elevated tees, miles and miles of unobstructed scenery is afforded.

The course has those primary elements that are characteristic of the great golf courses of the world; not just one or two good demanding golf holes, but a series of 3 or 4 great holes. The first six holes of this course are honorable and "a bit of all right:'

All golf courses of merit and all outstanding golf holes have one thing in common-they look absolutely natural, as if the terrain had always been that way, waiting to be discovered for golf.

As golf courses go, the NGAC is relatively young. But, scarcely had the construction scars healed when "Sports Illustrated" recognized the 165-yard par 3, sixth hole as something special. The national magazine sent its photographer to the elevated tee to capture the breathtaking scene of the star-shaped, trap-infested putting surface labeled among the most beautiful 18 Golf Holes in America.

As a real realtor with Keller Williams in Cool Springs, I would be totally negligent to leave out the fact that Nashville Golf and Athletic is bordered by the Brentwood Tn neighborhoods of Montclair, Carriage Hills, Brenthaven, Cool Springs, and Crockett Springs. All of these neighborhoods are zoned for Ravenwood High school, one of the top public schools in the state of Tennessee.

Larry, Cool post! I did not know that about Crockett Park area. I thought that there was some relation to Davy but wasn't too sure...

Michael - My pictures don't really do it justice. THe water hazards and trees are all in just the right places, and if you feel brave and you play from the back tess, it's 7400 yards. THis would be a tough course for anybody. and the history is preserved in a way that doesn't cost the community aything.
