Course Overviews

Greystone Golf Course

Dickson, TN
Founded in 1998 by former PGA Tour player Mark McCumber, Greystone Golf Club is an ideal venue for tournament golfers of all skill levels. Located 30 minutes outside of Nashville, Greystone most recently hosted the 2020 G-Rock Open that featured one of the strongest amateur fields in the country, but Greystone has also played host to numerous Tennessee State opens. Known for being a very fair but tough test, Greystone uses the natural terrain to create a fun and challenging experience for golfers of every skill level. Measuring 6,900 yards from the back tees, golfers with shotmaking ability and a strong game are rewarded with many birdie opportunities. Greystone will be a fun and fair test for our 2 nd North American Championship.

Hermitage: President's Reserve

Old Hickory, TN

The President’s Reserve, designed by architect Denis Griffiths (designer Atlanta’s Chateau Élan Resort Courses), trails through 300 acres of natural Tennessee wetlands and along the banks of the beautiful Cumberland River.

Playing up to 7200 yards, The President’s Reserve can offer any golfer as much challenge as one might desire yet be a pleasurable golfing experience for a higher handicap golfer. The President’s Reserve has been recognized by Golf Digest Magazine as one of the TOP 10 in TENNESSEE.

Gaylord Springs Golf Links

Nashville, TN
Located 10 minutes from Nashville International Airport (BNA) and 5 minutes from Opryland, Gaylord Springs has consistently been recognized among the best courses you can play in Tennessee. Gaylord Springs is carved from the banks of the meandering Cumberland River. The Scottish links-style, par-72 layout offers 18 holes bordered by limestone bluffs and wetlands. No matter your skill level, you’ll be inspired by the natural Tennessee beauty that surrounds you from tee to green. Gaylord Springs forces the golfer to think and react, creating a great test of Championship golf.

Tennessee Grasslands

Gallatin, TN
Located in Gallatin, Tennessee just 30 miles from Nashville International Airport, Tennessee Grasslands is the only private country club on the North American Championship rotation. Designed by Bill Bergin, The Foxland course offers a classic design rooted in golf’s golden era, artfully following the indigenous terrain along Old Hickory Lake. The course gives the player a wide variety of holes, winding through the terrain and forcing the player to hit every club in their bag. Precision off the tee will help you navigate the back nine’s rolling hills and challenging holes. Foxland will serve as a tough test for our North American Championship, and a low score here will certainly be earned.
