Voted Tennessee’s top course by Golf Week magazine, Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain State Park is one of several Bear Trace sites designed by Jack Nicklaus. The par-72 layout encompasses 6,900 yards and takes advantage of a varied terrain. The course features several streams as well as groves of mature pines. The course plays longer than it actually is, due to rapid changes in elevation and numerous blind shots across fairways with a right-to-left traverse. The signature 7th hole spans 393 yards and features myriad hazards, including a waterfall to the right, bunkers on the left, and stacked flagstones straight ahead. The short par-3 8th hole is even more challenging, as it lies on a hill, and missing the green lands the ball in heavy rough and typically results in a bogey.
