NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The golf course at Nashville’s Fairvue Plantation has been so well received the developers of the city’s only lakefront community have decided to build another 18 holes.
That task will be given to Fairvue Plantation designer Bill Bergin, who recently agreed to make the new Foxland Golf Course his latest original work. Construction is scheduled to begin late this fall and the course will be open for play in the spring of 2007.
Bergin is eager to return to the Fairvue site after producing such good results the last time.
"I do consider the first course to be one of my best, possessing an exceptional back nine and great finishing holes along the lake on each nine," Bergin said. "The new course is on a beautiful piece of rolling Tennessee countryside with many views of Old Hickory Lake. It is located just west of Fairvue, across the lake from the 18th hole.
"The interesting aspect of this design is the clustering or grouping of holes with homes on the perimeter, giving it more of a core feel while creating terrific lake and golf course lots. We will use an old style design concept on this course."
Foxland will stretch out to 7,200 yards from the championship tees. Fairvue Plantation, which has been nominated for Golf Digest’s Best New Course Award, is a challenging 7,100-yard layout that winds through the Fairvue property with several holes playing directly along Old Hickory Lake.
