Golf Headquarters – Cool Springs – Nashville
Nashville, TN Golf
Curtiss and Anthony Fazilat are confident that the good name they’ve established over 16 years in the golf marketplace will quickly make their Cool Springs store, GOLF HEADQUARTERS, a familiar name.
The Fazilats are co-owners of GOLF HEADQUARTERS of Nashville, formerly a franchised golf shop. “GOLF HEADQUARTERS Inc. is an elite buying group, made up of the strongest & most knowledgeable and powerful golf retailers in our industry. We’re not a franchise but a buying group, therefore are able to use the name GOLF HEADQUARTERS”, says Curtiss. “You must be invited to participate, and in fact, there are only three of us in the state of Tennessee”. As members of the group, the Fazilats benefit from the purchasing power of the National Golf Buyers Association. “The biggest benefit of the group is our purchasing power which in turn, means lower prices for our customers and makes it even more difficult for the big box corporate stores to compete with us”, says Curtiss.
“We’ve been members of this elite group for over 10 years now. We attend our annual trade show where we share resources & discuss business strategies, then order and purchase products for the upcoming year”, Fazilat says. Several things set their store apart, the partners say: The store is locally owned and operated and you’ll find one or both in their store every day. They carry mainstream, national brands, not the private-label merchandise many of their competitors do. “Customers seem to prefer this,” says Anthony. “The industry has changed so much over the past several years. People are looking for bargains and those bargains don’t have to be knock-off or private label merchandise any more. We’re good at what we do and I believe our customers appreciate our service and prices. With Curtiss and I in the store every day, we’re able to service our customers better than any corporate store ever can. We have an incredible staff of Don Belleque (sales), Eric O’Brien (club repair & fitting), Doug Harris, David Pitman and Paula Fazilat (acct), who love what they do, which in turn, makes Curtiss’ and my job a little easier”.
Besides its wealth of golf equipment, apparel and accessories, GOLF HEADQUARTERS specializes in club fitting & repair on all major brands. In fact, Eric O’Brien, who’s been on staff for quite some time, is a graduate of the Golf Academy of America, Phoenix (AZ). He’s also enrolled in the PGA PGM (Professional Golf Management) program, which covers all aspects of the business.
Welcome to GOLF HEADQUARTERS! Our association, known as the National Golf Buyers Association, Inc., is the largest retail golf buying group in the United States and Canada, and we make up over 120 independently owned and operated golf retail stores throughout the U.S., Canada and Australia.
We accept Competitor Coupons and Gift Cards!
The result of our association is that our customers benefit from our buying power, tenure and experience in the industry.

Pick your colors from the paint bar. Artistically challenged? No worries, we have idea books, stamps and stencils and our friendly staff is always on hand to get you started.
Leave your piece with us to be clear glazed and kiln-fired to 1800 degrees so it’s super shiny and completely food-safe.
Return to the studio in 7 days to pick up your piece. Out of town? No problem, ask us for a quote to ship your pieces.
What it Costs:

Our studio time is unlimited, you can have as many colors as you want and glazing & firing is free!
Regular Studio Hours: Mon–Sat 10-9 | Sun 1-6. Please arrive at least 90 minutes before close so that you have plenty of time to paint. Arrive at least one hour before close for last pottery pick-up. Groups of 6 or more need a reservation.

The Franklin Art Scene – Friday, Febuary 1st
The Franklin Art Scene will guide participants to nearly 40 sites on Friday, Feb. 1 and patrons will see live demonstrations and award-winning pieces, from handcrafted fine jewelry and blown glass to turned wood, mixed media and more.
A $5 ticket gives you an unlimited Art Scene wristband to the trolleys that circulate from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. For more details and map information, go towww.franklinartscene.com.
Franklin Mercantile Deli will display the work of Joseph Dzuback Bibb, a Franklin native whose work includes paintings and mixed media. Much of the Franklin native’s recent work is influenced by both his Irish and Tennessee heritage and the landscape of his ancestors.
Creative Find-N-Design on Main Street will feature Jim Booth, a local photographer whose award-winning photos have been captured throughout the Southeast. The artist, who uses little to no editing techniques, gravitates towards the “rural America” shots that depict sweeping landscapes, intimate moments in nature and animals native to the south.
Boutique MMM on the Public Square will host Philip Terhune, a Nebraska native and Purdue University graduate who recently made Tennessee his home. The fine artists feels a natural connection toward abstract art, and utilizes common shapes paired with unexpected lines to produce Terhune’s signature style. Terhune layers each work to create a textured look that encourages both the touch and sight senses.
Handy Hardware on Columbia Avenue is a new site on the circuit, and will use its second month to feature local photographer and writer Donna O’Neil will showcase her photography at the store. Self-described as a “Cracker Barrel meets hardware store,” this eclectic small business will showcase O’Neil’s memories captured from the East Coast coastline. Though her portfolio is dominated by coastal images, from sailboats and schooners to lighthouses and wharves (reminiscent of Newburyport, Mass), O’Neil also finds beautiful moments in the history and landscape of Williamson County.
The business will also feature several Viva NashVegas Radio Show regulars, along with artist and musician George Hamilton V and his woodblock printed signs. The vintage-looking productions are rustic, wood block prints look-alike works–but with a George twist.

Franklin Mercantile Deli – Downtown Franklin
CLICK HERE FOR 50% OFF COUPON
Making a sandwich requires only two slices of bread, filling, and an expensive machine that holds the slices of bread steady while the filling is shot in between them with some sort of air-powered hose. Go somewhere that has that apparatus with this Groupon.
$20 for $40 Worth of Casual American Breakfast and Lunch
Available from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, the menu lands squarely in diner territory. Eggs, hash-brown casserole, bread, and bacon or sausage comprise the Mercantile breakfast plate ($6.95), which can be enhanced with pancakes or french toast (+$1.50). The BLT ($8.25) contains the usual suspects, plus a smear of tomato-cream-cheese spread, whereas the Guacamento ($8.25) merges a trio of guacamole, pimento cheese, and black olives.
Franklin Mercantile Deli
Before Franklin Mercantile Deli moved into 100 Fourth Avenue North, an antique store occupied the space. Graeme and Corrie Asch and Annie and Darryl McCreary bought the property in 1999, removing dusty knick-knacks and Lincoln’s prenuptial agreement to make way for homey wooden tables and wingback chairs. The opening year,Southern Living magazine profiled the owners and their early successes; it lauded the deli’s “comfortable shabby-chic atmosphere” in measure with its “even more appealing” menu, which teeters on the brink of gourmet. Although sandwiches have familiar titles, many have an unexpected twist: the BLT gains an evocative flavor from a slather of sun-dried-tomato cream cheese, and the flank steak balances beefy notes with a bright basil dressing.
Monday – Wednesday 7 am – 3 pm ; Thursday – Saturday 7 am – 9 pm ; Sunday, closed
100 4th Avenue North, Downtown Franklin, TN 37064
The restaurant dabbles in live music and is fully committed to showcasing the works of local artists. Photographs and paintings decorate the dining room, along with a few handicrafts from the founding partners—Annie slipcovered a sofa, and Graeme and Darryl built the counter and shelves.
