Brentwood-based Nashville Golf and Athletic Club (NGAC) may soon host the Nashville Golf Open, pending city approval.
The city’s planning commission has been presented with plans for the tournament and will either approve or deny the plans at Monday night’s Planning Commission meeting. As it is an item on the consent agenda, the plan will likely be decided upon quickly at the first of the meeting.
The NGAC has hosted the Nashville Golf Open since 2016, when Tour Vision Promotions negotiated a five-year agreement with the club to run through 2020.
This year’s event is scheduled for April 29 through May 5, beginning with a professional practice day. The Pro-Am is scheduled for May 1, and the tournament will take place May 2-5.
Net proceeds from the tournament will benefit The First Tee of Middle Tennessee, a regional life skills program for youth operated by the Tennessee Golf Foundation.
It will also benefit the tournament’s title sponsor, the Snedeker Foundation, a nonprofit organization which supports a variety of efforts on both the social and athletic fronts, including increasing community awareness, education and training about child maltreatment.
Details about transportation to the events which have been provided to the Planning Commission include an agreement for off-site parking with the Holy Family Catholic Church for April 29-May 3, and an agreement through the Williamson County School District for 1,251 parking spaces at Ravenwood High School on Saturday and Sunday.
Residents living on Andrew Crockett Court will be given information about activities and times, passes to the event and a car lanyard to ensure quick and easy access to their homes.
Temporary structures planned for the event include tents, equipment and vendor trucks which will be set up around the golf course.
The city’s staff report recommends the Planning Commission approve the item with 16 standard requirements and one condition of approval, regarding the implementation of several temporary no parking signs for residential streets.
Brentwood’s Planning Commission is scheduled to meet Monday night at 7 p.m. at Brentwood City Hall.
