VinnyLinks Golf Course

VinnyLinks Golf Course sign

Nestled on the Cumberland River in East Nashville, the VinnyLinks Golf Course is the home of The First Tee of Tennessee. The VinnyLinks at Shelby Park opened in 2000 to provide a venue for junior golfers to experience the game of golf. The VinnyLinks, open March–November, is a nine-hole 1210-yard, par three course. Former U. S. Open winner Lou Graham honed his game, as a young boy, at the Riverview Golf Course that was to become the VinnyLinks.

VinnyLinks is programmed by the First Tee of Tennessee. For detailed information on youth golf and the First Tee Program, visit
