Just an hour-and-a-half south of Nashville lies another star of the Jack Nicklaus-designed collection. The Bear Trace at Tims Ford has received widespread acclaim almost from the day of its opening. Included among its plaudits are one of the “Top Ten Places You Can Play” and one of the “Best New Destinations” in Tennessee for 1999. Situated on a peninsula surrounded by picturesque Tims Ford Lake, this visually compelling golf course has been described by one national publication as a “glittering newcomer….an intriguing 6,763 yard layout (gold tees) with several different looks.”
