Congratulations to 13 year old Tyler Williamson for shooting a bogey free 63 at a Sneds Jr. Tour event at Tim's Ford!


Hello! I'm Michel Alary, but have been know as “Barney” for over fifteen years, since I was at Austin Peay. My dad was a golf professional for thirty-eight years, so I grew up involved in golf even before people started calling me Barney. I have now been teaching golf professionally for about 13 years. Previously, I was the Head Golf Instructor at Through The Green, Highland Rim in Joelton and Head Golf Instructor at Riverside Golf Center. I have been analyzing golf swings since I was 10, so there are not a lot of swings I haven’t seen. I have a Flightscope launch monitor, to help anyone with their swing performance from beginner to advanced player. From 1988 to 1992 I played golf for Austin Peay State University. During my time there, I won two college tournaments, one of which was the 1991 Ohio Valley Conference Championship and was subsequently named 1991 O.V.C. Player of the Year. I have had several juniors qualify for the state finals throughout my years teaching, and numerous scholarships awarded to my juniors as well. Here are some other reasons to consider taking a golf lesson with me at Old Hickory Country Club: All Lessons are 45-1 hour long You don’t have to be a member to take a lesson with me! No extra charge for on the course lessons! Private practice hole. Bermuda greens that run from 10-13 on the stimp. Access to an indoor/outdoor teaching building (equipped with heat) that can provide shelter if we have bad weather (rain, snow, cold, AND shade when it is hot!). FlightScope launch monitor! Well maintained facilities
