In 1999, the Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain State Park was named “One of the Top Ten You Can Play in North America” by Golf Magazine. In 2001, Golf Digest named it “One of the Top Ten Courses in Tennessee” and the course has been named by GOLFWEEK Magazine as the #1 Public Course in Tennessee for 2012 and for 2013. 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. As is typical in Jack Nicklaus Signature courses, there are many risk/reward opportunities for all levels of golfers.
