One of the many reasons that Franklin is known as one of the “South’s Best Small Towns” and “The South’s Prettiest Towns,” by Southern Living, is because of its fantastic natural beauty, which is never more apparent than in Williamson County’s many great golf courses. We asked a few of our staff members for their course recommendations as well as a few helpful tips to help you shave a few strokes off your handicap:
6200 Wildings Blvd, College Grove
The Grove is an absolutely breathtaking eighteen-hole, par-seventy-two course. Its reputation as one of the best private golf courses in middle Tennessee is due in part to the fact that the course is maintained in tournament condition on a daily basis
Franklin Bridge Golf Club
750 Riverview Drive, Franklin
Franklin Bridge Golf Club is considered one of the best public courses in Franklin. This links-style course is a respite amongst the booming growth of Williamson County. Mature trees, fitting mounds, and the Harpeth River make this course not only a fun place to golf, but a beautiful place to observe the natural beauty of Middle Tennessee.
Golf Tips from the Lineage Team
“Eliminate the big numbers. Meaning eliminate the big mistakes and make a bogey at worst, not a double or a triple (bogey), because it’s a lot easier to make up one shot compared to two or three.” -Drake Duncan (Commercial Lender & Former College Golfer)
“Take an extra club and swing smooth. Not only will this help you hit your iron shots the right distance, but when swinging slower you’ll likely be more accurate too. Trackman found that over 65% of amateur’s golf shots finish short of the target from 160 yards. By adding ten more yards to all their golf shots, amateurs will increase the percentage of greens they hit.” -Carl Haynes (EVP, Chief Banking Officer)
We highly recommend checking out these wonderful establishments offering some of the best golf experiences in the region. If you’re up for eighteen with Drake and Carl, let us know!
