Hermitage Hotel | Vanderbilt Legends Club – Nashville, Tennessee
We are looking forward to taking our members on an unforgettable trip to Nashville, Tennessee for our 2021 May Meeting.
We will relax and enjoy impeccable accommodations at The Hermitage Hotel, which is the most original and longest standing Nashville hotel. The luxury hotel has been the backdrop for 106 years of traditions, memories, and Nashville’s most iconic moments.
We are looking forward to creating our own The 200 Club iconic moments in 2021 and hope you will join us. Scroll down to learn more about our destinations.
During our stay in Kohler, members will play three acclaimed golf courses all designed by Pete Dye, who is widely regarded as the greatest architect of his generation.
Our members will soon have the opportunity to enjoy saying one of Nashville’s most popular phrases of “Meet me at The Hermitage Hotel”.
When spoken or heard today, those words evoke a timeless sense of quality and excitement, with a touch of glamor and class. Since opening its doors in 1910, the famous Nashville hotel has been a favorite among celebrities, politicians, and music legends like Babe Ruth, John F. Kennedy, Patsy Cline, and Johnny Cash.
And while the hotel still offers the historic charm and a distinctive Beaux Arts style that attracted these famous guests, the hotel provides all the modern luxuries that even the most discerning guest will appreciate. The lobby – a painted glass skylight – allows beautiful natural light to highlight the grand staircase, marble floors and columns, and ornate chandeliers.
Complementing the awe-inspiring entrance and Nashville’s warm and authentic spirit, each guest room and suite boasts an elegant design woven together with traditional sophistication. With an average starting size of 500 square feet, rooms at The Hermitage Hotel provide luxury hotel rooms to make your stay feel just like home.

Vanderbilt Legends Club
Just inland from the great lake and interspersed by four meandering streams, the grassland-and-dunes aspect of the Irish course is a deceivingly tranquil landscape. Both traditional and memorable, the Irish course is full of unique challenges. The Irish at Whistling Straits was ranked #39 in GolfWeek’s 2018 Best Resort Courses and #43 in Golf Digest’s 2019/2020 America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses.
Since opening in 1992, Vanderbilt Legends Club has made its mark in the world of golf by receiving national recognition and accolades.
The par 72 North Course, stretching 7,190 yards from the championship tees, was designed by Hall of Fame golfer Tom Kite and world-renowned golf course architect, Bob Cupp. The greens are well undulated with the promise of multiple hole locations and the bunkers are large and boldly shaped. The course path provides an inspired variety of holes playing through lush fields and around lakes and streams.
The par 71 South Course, 71 measuring 7,100 yards, takes players through verdant fields winding in the shadow of historic Roper’s Knob hillside. With a mix of wooded and open spaces, the South Course offers a unique and challenging golf experience.
Together, these courses are widely recognized as among some of the finest in Tennessee, having served as the hosts of many local, regional, and national competitions.

Pete Dye designed one of the best golf courses in America on rich land once known by the Winnebagos and Algonquins for exceptional fishing and hunting. Intimidating to the professional, fair and dramatic for the amateur, this “beauty of the beast” measures 7,404 from the back tees with a slope of 151. Target landing areas, strategic bunkering, large undulating greens, and water or gorges on 14 of the 18 holes characterize the challenge of this championship course. The playing values of the River course are a match for its natural beauty.
From its very beginnings, Nashville grew from a foundation built on music. Music has been the common thread connecting the life and soul of the city and its people. And visitors have ventured here to experience the music that weaves such a fundamental pattern in its cultural, business and social fabric.
Bright lights and live music fill the streets of Nashville’s buzzing main drag all year long. Over last few years, the Tennessee capital has experienced a remarkable surge in growth, and it’s now become one of the hottest music and foodie scenes in the nation. Yet despite all the new hotels, bars and restaurants, it’s managed to somehow maintain the small town feel which made it so beloved in the first place.
Because it is a cosmopolitan city full of a lot of special things to do, see, experience and eat… Nashville will no doubt provide the perfect backdrop for our May Meeting.
