Richland Country Club | Nashville, Tennessee
Assistant General Manager

About the Club
Located in the heart of Nashville on 170 acres of rolling hills with breathtaking views, Richland Country Club is a private member club steeped in the history, elegance, and grace of Tennessee. Established in 1901, this historic southern country club provides incredible facilities with intuitive and friendly service.  A recently completed extensive renovation has enhanced all areas of the facility and has reaffirmed the clubs’ position as Nashville’s preeminent club.   The Jack Nicklaus signature golf course has also been fully renovated with the addition of two luxury comfort stations.  Further capital projects & expansion are envisaged over the coming years.

Nashville is largely considered the “It” city of the South and has economic vitality with an incredible quality of life. The city is recognized among the most dynamic, competitive, and admired metropolitan areas in America, with a cosmopolitan vibe and an abundance of leisure and cultural activities. The lower cost of living compared to other major cities make 100+ people per day moving to the area.

The current site of Richland Country Club offers much historical significance. The property is located on what was once part of the core battlefield of the closing cavalry action from the 1864 Battle of Nashville. While excavating to build the new Clubhouse and course, old bullet fragments and other Civil War artifacts were found. Tee markers are replicas of the bullets used in the Civil War.

Richland’s Jack Nicklaus Signature-designed 18-hole, championship course is 6,968 yards skillfully crafted into the varied terrain of middle Tennessee. The course was recently renovated by Bill Bergin and the changes have been extremely well received. The practice facilities include a practice range, a short game area, and a putting green for players to improve in all facets of the game.

The Club is open seven days a week year-round. Gross revenue annually is $17.6 million with Food & Beverage accounting for $5 million, 38% of F&B revenue is from private events. The Club is at full capacity (1,100) with a wait list.
