About The Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain

The Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain is situated in the heart of Tennessee’s scenic Cumberland Plateau and is one of the most sought-after sites among the five 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 regio’s natural resources, layered flagstone, along the front of the green.
