Biography

George Livingstone was a great golfer. If he played in this age of media attention, his name would be well-known on the PGA Tour. His claim to fame came in 1926 when he clipped a stroke off Bobby Jones’ world record for thirty-six holes of medal play, with rounds of 67-68-133 in the Southeastern PGA Tournament at the Belle Meade Country Club. It is no surprise that Livingstone set the record at Belle Meade. After all, he had designed and laid out this course in the winter of 1915. A native of North Brunswick, Scotland, Livingstone came to the Nashville Golf and Country Club in 1912 from Englewood, New Jersey, where he was an assistant pro. Generations of Nashville golfers have accumulated many hours of enjoyment because of George Livingstone’s fine work in the early 1900s.
