Detailed description of Hermitage Golf Course, The Generals Retreat

Hermitage Golf Course is a Public, 36 hole golf facility located in Old Hickory, Tennessee. The Hermitage has two championship 18-hole golf courses, they are The Generals Retreat and The Presidents Reserve.

The Generals Retreat was the first of the two courses having opened in 1986. The course was designed by Gary Roger Baird. The President's Reserve opened 15 years later (2001) and was designed by Denis Griffiths.

The General's Retreat is a walkable course, and was primarily built on flat terrain, but there is some mounding that can cause uneven lies. The LPGA Tour's Sara Lee Classic was held at this course from 1988 to 1999. 

This course is said to be in perfect condition all year and playable by all skill levels. There are several ponds and a lake that come into play on sixteen holes.

This public course offers some of the best play in Nashville and surrounding area. The staff members are exceptional and very accomodating. The General's Retreat has a traditional layout with accurate tee shots required and the greens are usually fast and true. Lot's of subtle contours are a real test of putting skills. Very playable for most levels of golfers. Memberships are available with a choice of levels, and we'll worth the fee if played regularly.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again
