The Hermitage Golf Course is the premiere public-access golf facility in Nashville, Tennessee, located northeast of the city along the Cumberland River. The championship track at the property is the President’s Reserve, designed by Denis Griffiths in the year 2000.
Although comparisons to Bethpage may be hyperbole, it seems that the architect took at least some inspiration from that landmark’s championship route while designing Reserve. Many of the bunkers along President's Reserve feature long fingers reaching to grab balls, much like A.W. Tillinghast’s own iconic hazards. It certainly has the distance to challenge scratch golfers, measuring more than 7,150 yards from the back tees.
The highlight for many players will be the five holes that run directly along the Cumberland, although this is hardly the only water hazard on the course (in fact, it’s rather tough to end up in the river). Inland, there’s another wide channel that runs parallel to the Cumberland. It comes into play most dramatically at No. 13, where players will drive across it, and it also runs along the left of the closing par four as well.
