Ranked 56th on Golf Magazine’s 2010 Top 100 Courses You Can Play, Longaberger Golf Club’s immaculate, Arthur Hills–designed course stretches across 7,243 yards of rolling hills and parkland-style terrain. Begin a day of orb-blasting bravado with a stint at the club’s 25-acre natural grass driving range, where target greens stretch into the distance, beckoning seductively to practice balls and recently single 9-irons. The lengthy course challenges golfers early on at the par 5 fourth hole—the course’s most difficult hole—where orbs must travel 563 yards from the back tees to reach the green while also contending with a treacherous 150-foot drop in elevation. A generous selection of five tee options helps players of all club-flailing fortitude tame the formidable grassy monolith and its unruly gang of cart-hating, motorcycle-riding ex-caddies.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course designed by Arthur Hills * Length of 7,243 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 75.0 from the farthest tees * Slope of 140 from the farthest tees * Five tee options available<p>

The Virtues Golf Club
The awards continue to pile up for The Virtues Golf Club. The course formerly known as Longaberger was named the top public course in Ohio in 2015 by Golf Digest. It was also ranked among the top 75 public courses in the nation by both Golf Digest and Golf Magazine. Located about 40 miles outside of downtown Columbus, this Arthur Hills-designed masterpiece meanders gracefully from ridge top to valley. The imaginative design incorporates the area's natural layout into its wide, rolling fairways, and panoramic views around every turn truly immerse golfers into the area's beauty.
Visitors can also appreciate stunning views of the course from inside the 60,000-square-foot clubhouse, where elegant furnishings, cathedral ceilings, and a dramatic stone fireplace wait to greet tired players or thirsty golf carts. Those luxurious details carry over into The Overlook restaurant, whose floor-to-ceiling bay windows and outdoor verandah overlook the 18th hole.
