The AJGA returns to Richland Country Club for the Bridgestone
Golf/Brandt Snedeker Music City Junior presented by Toyota. The course
challenged competitors with dramatic elevation changes and undulating greens. The
immaculate conditions provided an amazing backdrop for players and spectators
all week long.

HISTORICAL HOST: Richland Country Club, located in Brentwood, Tennessee is the
site the Battle of Nashville, a famous Civil War battle. The clubhouse displays
shelves of artifacts that were found on the course just next to where the No. 9
teeing area currently sits. The rock walls that line the course also dates back
to the Civil War.
