Hermitage Golf Course

Stay and Play Options at Hermitage Golf Resort

Golf in Tennessee

By Brian Weis

Hermitage Golf Course is a privately owned and operated business just 20 minutes outside of Nashville, TN. Set on the banks of the beautiful Cumberland River, Hermitage played host to the LPGA Sara Lee Classic in the late '80's through the early '90's. Spanning over 500 acres of manicured Tennessee land, Hermitage Golf Course has something for everyone. Being a 36-hole public facility, along with a myriad set of tees, the challenges are always fresh on either of our two signature golf courses, the General's Retreat and the President's Reserve.

In 2016, Hermitage Golf Course, in the ongoing plan to set itself apart from the competition not only in our area of the country, but also on the golfing world stage, designed and constructed eight luxury cottages on site, just two hundred yards from the first tee! Just what you are looking for in your next
stay and play. Each cottage is equipped with two bedrooms, two queen beds in each bedroom as well as two bathrooms. A spacious living area, outdoor seating options and beverage prep area with small fridge. Each suite is impeccably decorated. These cottages are just the extra special touch this hidden gem was looking for in the Nashville area. While on property we believe our guest should have no need to leave to arrange any golfing needs or dining options. Hermitage has made another upgrade to the facility with the total remodeling of the bar and grill area. After a three-month renovation of the bar, a new and improved setup with full service restaurant, has made Hermitage the number one stop for golfers around the area.

With all our cottage options we have a stay and play package that includes dinner, drinks and cigars on the cottage landing area, for you and many of your friends to enjoy. Hermitage Golf Course has a company line, stated by the President of the company Ashley Eller-Cottrell, "anyone can have 18 or 36 holes, but it's the experience you offer that sets you apart!" Hermitage is an experience driven golf course, albeit we are a golf course, we understand and relish we are in the entertainment business. The experience that is rendered with the price that is paid makes this value outstanding around the city, state or for most of the southeast. So, whether you are staying for a week, or just passing through onto your next destination, just know Hermitage Golf Course is the stop for you and your friends on your next golf outing!

One attraction that has become a nationwide interest story is the sheep of Hermitage Golf Course. Starting in the year of 2012, the owner of Hermitage Golf Course, Mike Eller was playing at Whistling Straits in Kolher Wisconsin; what would happen on the 12 hole would be enlightening for Mr. Eller and Hermitage Golf Course. Seeing the sheep that reside at Whistling Straight follow Mr. Eller for the next few holes, would prompt a vison, or an idea that would soon become a mainstay for Hermitage.

Since that remarkable day Hermitage Golf Course has their own sheep freely roaming the 500 hundred acres of property. What started out with twelve (12) sheep has since grown into over forty (40) sheep. Mr. Eller believes you are always setting yourself apart from the competition, and let me tell you, this sure does! Now when you stop in before or after your round, you will be sure to see the sheep merchandise all around the fabulously laid out pro shop!

Your group looking for a small imamate gathering spot?! Look no further than the beautiful river porch! Set high a top the gorgeous Cumberland River and quietly behind the fourth hole on the President's Reserve, the river porch has just what you and your group is looking for in the next family or corporate get to together! Just a short cart ride from the clubhouse the river porch has breathtaking views, along with a simple get away that will soon "WOW" the party goers! With this private feel of an oasis this will take your next party over the top here at Hermitage Golf Course!
