Course

The Spring Creek Ranch experience is about the natural beauty of the land that makes up our unique golf course. These thousand acres were once a thriving cattle ranch, and almost all of its original terrain has been preserved in our Jack Nicklaus Signature course. Whether it’s the challenge of the double fairway on the third hole, or the meticulously manicured grounds around you, playing Spring Creek Ranch grants a sense of profound satisfaction for those who enjoy golf.

Our course is naturally beautiful, but it’s also meticulously maintained. Our superintendent and staff of 30 maintain the highest level of playability with their unexcelled expertise. We strive to keep Spring Creek Ranch in tournament condition all year round, not just for special events. The entire course is sand-plated under the turf for ideal water drainage. Even after a morning downpour, we’re frequently off the paths that same afternoon.

In addition to the turf conditions, the solitude is unparalleled. We are a member of the Audubon Conservation Preserve, with approximately 330 acres devoted to preserving the wetlands, wildlife habitat and surrounding ecosystems. You will not encounter power lines or hear trains. There are few houses visible from the course. There are no tee times. On some days, you may never see another golfer throughout your round, but our staff is always accessible and ready to assist you wherever you are on the grounds. Every detail has been attended to so you can focus on your game in the most gratifying conditions.

Jack Nicklaus designed the course himself to challenge golfers and frame the awe-inspiring land, making Spring Creek Ranch as much about the game as it is a golfer’s destination. Golf Digest ranks Spring Creek Ranch second among all golf courses in Tennessee, and there is no other course like it anywhere. Jack once said it was the best course he ever designed without an ocean view. It’s no wonder many of our members choose to walk the 6-mile course and soak in the surroundings.

Practice Facilities

Ten-acre, two-sided driving range, pitching range, five target sand green pitching range, three putting greens, five greenside practice bunkers, and one fairway practice bunker.

Everything we do at Spring Creek Ranch is designed to help our members have the ultimate golf club experience, and nothing is more enjoyable than playing your best golf. That’s why we offer a world-class practice facility. It includes a driving range maintained to the same visual standards as our golf course, and a 5-acre short game area where players can go through every imaginable short game scenario, including a 25–125 yard pitching range with sand greens for mastering distance control. Members can hone their skills before taking on the challenges of Spring Creek Ranch or before taking their game anywhere in the world. 

History

A chance encounter between a Memphis ophthalmologist and a world-famous golfer

It was on a trip in the great outdoors that David Meyer and Jack Nicklaus struck up a friendship that resulted in Jack coming out to see the piece of land known as Spring Creek Ranch. Mr. Nicklaus was impressed with Dr. Meyer’s vision of a golf experience founded on pure nature. Since Jack shared this passion for nature married with the challenge of golf, he enthusiastically agreed to make 320 acres one of the most coveted golf courses for hundreds of miles. Spring Creek Ranch has always been a family-owned and -operated golf club, buying back 100% ownership in 2010 and marking the beginning of an exciting new chapter in our history.

Golf House

The refined, rustic look of our golf house was designed by world-renowned architect James Cutler. This contemporary and inimitable design is modern, but welcoming. It’s a private retreat where golfers can relax, socialize and be served with every attention to detail. The structure is made from flawless Douglas fir and European Steam Beech wood, framing unspoiled sightlines and opening breathtaking vistas from almost anywhere in the house.

With sleek wood interiors and panoramic views of the ranch, the locker rooms are the ultimate in serenity. Here, players can relax in our sitting areas, simply hang a ribbon from their shoe locker for our signature shoeshine service, enjoy the light fare and full bar, or enjoy other convenient amenities. With its unique design and character, the golf house is the cornerstone of the Spring Creek Ranch service experience.  

Dining

We don’t work to exceed the standard for country club dining. We work to exceed the standards of the best restaurants in Memphis. At Spring Creek Ranch, you can order anything you want and we will serve it, or you can select from our versatile menu. Our staff doesn’t just take the time to know your favorite requests—they know you and your family by name. As with everything at Spring Creek Ranch, no bills are ever presented (except by request) and there is no cash tipping—all for an unsurpassed club experience at your utmost convenience.
