If you want to hit the links‚ there are plenty of places to play in the Columbus area. Green Oaks Golf Club on Green Oaks Drive boasts 18 holes over 6‚504 yards with a par 72‚ and Elm Lake Golf Course on Taylor-Thurston Road is a par-72 course with more than 6‚874 yards. In addition‚ Whispering Pines Golf Club is a military course on Columbus Air Force Base. The private Columbus Country Club is something of an institution. A neighbor in the community for the last 85 years, the club offers golf, tennis, an Olympic-sized saltwater pool and more. “We’re kind of stamped into the community as being the golf club in Columbus,” says Shannon Merchant, club events and membership coordinator. “As far as what people think of when they think of golf, I would assume they think of Columbus Country Club.”
