Where2Golf says: 

The Virtues Golf Club (formerly called Longaberger Golf Club) is home to one of the top-rated championship golf courses in Ohio. Located an hour's drive east of Columbus, Ohio, this excellent tree-lined and open parkland layout contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game, and well worth going out of your way to play.
