Virtues Golf Club near Columbus, Ohio

Virtues Golf Club, about a half hour outside Columbus, is one of the top rated golf courses in Ohio. And good news, this one is actually public.

In an area where many of the best courses are private, like Muirfield Village Golf Club and The Golf Club, Virtues accepts daily play, and it's also not a pretty penny, at just $99 in the peak season.

Ohio-based architect Arthur Hills built the golf course, and it's set on over 350 acres of open property, complete with rolling hills, ponds, marshland and open fields.

There are five sets of tees playing up to over 7,200 yards from the backs. Along with an imaginative design from Hills, course conditioning and clubhouse facilities are all five-star.

Brandon Tucker is the Sr. Managing Editor for GolfPass and was the founding editor of Golf Advisor in 2014, he was the managing editor for Golf Channel Digital's Courses & Travel. To date, his golf travels have taken him to over two dozen countries and nearly 600 golf courses worldwide. While he's played some of the most prestigious courses in the world, Tucker's favorite way to play the game is on a great muni in under three hours.
