Top five practice facilities

1. Gaylord Springs Links at Opryland

2. Vanderbilt Legends Club

3. Harpeth Valley Golf Center

4. Family Golf Center at Hickory Hollow

5. Hermitage Golf Learning Center and Practice Range


Gaylord Springs Links and Legends Club both feature the best in practice facilities. Gaylord Springs also offers a Golf Academy led by Golf Digest ranked pro Brian Lackey and Director of Golf Harry Taylor. You can also go through the Taylor Made Performance experience where they can fit you with the right clubs and equipment.

Legends is the home course for Vanderbilt golf teams and also where they practice. They have ranges on opposite sides of the facility, along with putting greens, chipping areas and bunkers for honing every part of your game.

Harpeth Valley in Bellevue has recovered from the flood and upgraded the entire lighted family facility, including the River Course, a 9-hole par-3 course. Instruction is available. It has a large driving range.
