Tennessee Grasslands Golf & Country Club | Gallatin, Tennessee
Director of Clubhouse Operations

About the Club
Located just 25 miles north of downtown Nashville, Tennessee Grasslands Golf & Country Club offers a fully private club experience across two complete, full-service country club properties with each location featuring 18 holes of championship-caliber golf, beautifully appointed yet different clubhouses to enjoy formal and informal dining and events, lakeside pools and fitness facilities. Tennessee Grasslands is the newly named Club for the merging of The Club at Fairvue Plantation (Lakes Clubhouse) and Foxland Harbor Golf & Country Club (Links Clubhouse) in 2018. The Club is privately owned by three partners and has a total of 1,037 members across all categories.

The Club offers golf for the entire family, with very active junior and ladies’ golf programs. Both the Lakes and Links golf courses were designed by Bill Bergin and are open year-round for play, averaging annually 36,000 and 27,000 rounds respectively. Each location has its own Pro Shop, Golf Practice Facilities and Halfway House for on-course refreshments.

Both clubhouses offer informal dining perfect for a casual meal after golf, as well as more formal settings for dinner and special events in the Adelicia Hayes Franklin Room at the Lakes and the Links Main Dining Room, both providing terrific golf course and lakeside views. For private affairs, options include the Andrew Jackson Library and the Gathering Room at the Lakes Clubhouse, and the Baber Room, Branham Room and Red Room as the most intimate spaces available at the Links Clubhouse. Outdoor dining and event spaces include the Lakes Courtyard, Lakes Pool Pavilion, Links Patio and Links Lawn. Just steps away from the Lakes Clubhouse, four guest cottages provide members and their guests a private alternative to traditional lodging. The cottages have been in place for over 150 years and have been carefully transformed through extensive renovations into complete “suites” for two.

The Club is open year-round with gross revenues of $9.5 million, of which $2.5 million is generated through food and beverage sales. There are 190 staff members in the height of season.
