GolfWorld Readers Vote Longaberger Golf Club One of Country’s Best

Esteemed Arthur Hills Design Scores Top 10 Honors, Distinction for its
Customer Service, Practice Facilities, Pro Shop and Other Amenities

(NASHPORT, Ohio) – The Longaberger Golf Club today announces its award-winning course has garnered distinction in GolfWorld magazine’s inaugural “Readers’ Choice Rankings” in the category “Top 50 Public Courses.”

GolfWorld’s discerning readers voted the Arthur Hills design No. 4 overall nationally – ahead of highly regarded Chambers Bay (future site of the 2010 U.S. Amateur and 2015 U.S. Open) and Bethpage State Park Golf Courses (home to multiple U.S. Open Championships).

Longaberger also ranked No. 1 in Customer Service and No. 3 for its Extensive Practice Facilities, and earned Top 10 status in these other categories: Quality of Course, Course Condition, Reputation/Prestige, Speed of Play, Locker Room, Pro Shop, and Food and Dining.

GolfWorld reviewed more than 21,000 individual golf course ratings and 252,000 criteria evaluations. While the quality of the golf is weighed heavily, the publication included several other variables that account for the facility's overall experience.

Longaberger Golf Club, which opened in 1999 and has collected national and international acclaim, ranks No. 57 in the United States (out of roughly 13,500 public-access courses) in GOLF Magazine’s 2008 “Top 100 Courses You Can Play” list, while Golfweek Magazine rated the course No. 1 in Ohio in its recent 2008 state-by-state rankings.

Unfolding over the rolling hills of central Ohio and blessed with panoramic sightlines, Longaberger Golf Club boasts immaculate playing conditions and five sets of tees – making the 7,243-yard layout shrink to accommodate any level of player. Further catering to the golfers’ experience is a 25-acre natural grass driving range and practice facility with target greens and a chipping, pitching and bunker area.
