Caddie's Summary:
. Belle Meade has a longstanding spot on the Top Ten courses of Tennessee and its reputation is well deserved. The Rees Jones design is challenging and missed fairways find a heavy Bermuda rough that takes skill to shoot from. Tee placement is essential and approach shots are to complex greens surrounded by bunkers, water or both. Several creeks run through the course and lakes with stone banking and bridges add to the natural beauty. The course is lined with mature trees and few homes are seen from the course. The track plays well for any handicap and the conditioning is always immaculate. As a full service country club, amenities include tennis courts, a pool, lounge, restaurant and a beautiful outside terrace. Members have an excellent retreat at Belle Meade.
