About the Course

Just an hour-and-a-half south of Nashville lies another star of the Jack Nicklaus-designed collection. The course at Tims Ford features Champion Bermuda greens and 419 Bermuda fairways. The opening holes are a blend of links-style creations that gently roll across former pasture land, then gradually transition to wooded sites dominated by giant oak trees. The Tims Ford Reservoir is visible from some holes on the course and comes into play on several of the 18 holes, creating an excellent balance of challenge and playability. Situated on a peninsula surrounded by picturesque Tims Ford Lake, this visually compelling golf course has been described by one national publication as a “glittering newcomer…an intriguing 6,764-yard layout (gold tees) with several different looks.”


On-Site Amenities

Driving Range, Practice Green, On-Site Lodging, Snack Bar, and Club Rental. Lessons are available.
