A great course for those with the game and the green.. A Public Course But Not For Everyone
Cumberland Trail may be a public course but it's not a John Q. Public course. Though not nearly as expensive as Longaberger, it's aiming for that same income bracket. And while not as touted as Cook's Creek, it's one of Central Ohio's most demanding courses.
Built For Speed, Not Comfort
Better bring plenty of touch because Cumberland prides itself on its fast greens. For better players, this might not be a problem; the greens have variously been described as "best in Columbus" and "best in the state." For duffers though, their speed and size may lead to considerable cursing and three-putting.
Long Distance Driving
At 7,200 yards, this is one of Columbus' longest courses. Particularly notable is the 227-yard 17th hole; that's their idea of a par-three. TravelGolf.com writer Carl Grody advises, "stay true to your handicap and don't bite off too much of this course."
