Baird hopes to find developer to build links course in Tenn.

If courses inspired by British links can find happy homes in Nebraska, Oregon, and Wisconsin, could one also be built in Tennessee?
Gary Roger Baird believes it’s possible, and he’s got the blueprints to prove it.

“I want to create something that nobody has seen,” the Nashville-based course designer told the Tennessean.

Baird has identified property along the Harpeth River in Williamson County that he believes is ideal for what the newspaper calls “the truest rendition of a British Isles links course in the South.” Although Baird has given the 27-hole field of dreams a name – Tennessee Golf Links & Club – he hasn’t as yet been able to persuade a developer to purchase the site and fund the construction.

And that’s always the acid test, isn’t it?
