Golf Week magazine names the Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain State Park the No. 1 Golf Course in Tennessee

Situated in the heart of Tennessee's scenic Cumberland Plateau, The Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain was named "Top Ten Courses in Tennessee" by Golf Digest in 2001. Cumberland Mountain was also named "1998's Best New Golf Course in Tennessee," by local and regional golfers that was followed in 1999 by Golf Magazine's "One of the Top Ten You Can Play" in North America.

Today, The Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain is one of the most sought-after sites among the Jack Nicklaus designed Bear Trace courses in Tennessee. The 6,900-yard (gold tees), par 72 layout features a design that capitalizes on elevation changes as well as natural features, such as flowing brooks and clustered, mature pines. The signature 7th hole, a 393-yard, par 4, incorporates another of the region's natural resources, layered flagstone, along the front of the green.
