Welcome to the Country Club of Bristol
The Country Club of Bristol is the birthplace of organized golf in the State of Tennessee. The Old Jonesboro address is the fourth physical location of The Club since it was originally formed in 1894 by Boston native and area newcomer, W.O. Came and several of his local friends. In fact, until a clubhouse was built, the basement of the W.O. Came home was used as a locker room. Moreover, it wasn’t until 1933 that the Club actually owned the property it had been using. For forty-three years The Club survived on the generosity of friends and Members such as Mr. Came.
The existing 18-hole course was constructed in 1958 by A.G. McKay, a golf course architect from Morristown, Tennessee, on land which was then known as the Gray and Bentley properties. Titles to the Gray family tracts derive from land grants in the year 1800 by the Commonwealth of Virginia and were signed by James Monroe, who was then the Governor of Virginia. In 1999, the course was reshaped by the Mark McCumber design group; the changes were executed by Course Crafters, who was also responsible for reshaping Augusta National.
The entire staff at Country Club of Bristol is pleased to be involved with a company with such a rich past, strong vision for the future, and emphasis on family recreation and involvement. Let our family serve your family.
The Club’s course features a challenging 6,474-yard, par-71 layout that is situated on 150 acres of rolling hills.
