The Nashville Golf Open Benefitting the Snedeker Foundation is one of twenty-seven professional golf tournaments on the Web.com TOUR and is held at Nashville Golf & Athletic Club in Brentwood, Tennessee. The Web.com TOUR provides players direct access to the PGA TOUR and seventy-three percent of all PGA TOUR players began their career on the Web.com TOUR.

In the inaugural event held in 2016, James Driscoll fired a 5-under par 67 in the final round and finished with a four-round total of 19-under to hold off Brian Campbell by three strokes for his second Web.com Tour win.

The 2017 Nashville Golf Open Benefitting the Snedeker Foundation saw a dramatic conclusion to an exciting tournament week. With darkness on the horizon, spectators crowded around the par 3 10th hole to watch Lanto Griffin outlast Abraham Ancer in the first playoff hole to claim the guitar trophy and his first Web.com Tour title. Lanto Griffin became the first player since 2004 on the Web.com Tour to win after making the cut on the number with weekend rounds of 62-68.

In its two year existence, the Nashville Golf Open Benefitting the Snedeker Foundation has donated more than $175,000 to its charitable beneficiaries as this number continues to rise each year.

The Snedeker Foundation supports a variety of efforts on both the social and athletic fronts, including Our Kids, which provides expert medical evaluations and crisis counseling services in response to concerns of child sexual abuse, while also working to increase community awareness, education and training about child maltreatment. Through the Tennessee Golf Foundation, the Snedeker Foundation annually supports the Sneds Tour, which puts forth a year-round junior golf tour in Tennessee aimed at allowing kids to learn, play and enjoy the game of golf, while also making competition more affordable through lower entry and registration fees.
